Harvey Preston Gallery specializes in contemporary ceramic art, works on paper and sculpture. Working with nationally and internationally recognized talent, the gallery’s main focus is to forefront the work of artists willing to push the boundaries of their ideas and materials.
“One of the things we do best at the gallery is bring innovative contemporary ceramic art to the Aspen art scene. During the past 10 years ceramics has also become a hot topic in the larger contemporary art world. Our goal is to have works that make you think and that ask the viewer to participate in a dialogue with the artist.” — Sam Harvey
