Coloradans at the Arizona Fine Arts Expo

We are already over a month into the nearly three-month long Arizona Fine Arts Expo. What a wonderful opportunity we have to showcase our Dusty Shutt Silver, Ltd. jewelry and to get to know the fine arts and artists making an appearance here.


Our beautiful state of Colorado is well represented here at the Expo. Guadalupe Apodaca of Fort Collins amazes fans and critics alike with precise portrayals of a person’s face in his Native American art. Sculptor Craig Bergsgaard calls Colorado home, and his bronze images depict America’s authentic Wild West past. Katherine McNeill is a self-described dedicated artist, with aspirations to allow you to smell the mountain air and to feel the crunch of the quaking aspens as you walk through the forest.


Born and raised in Durango, John Montoya designs art furniture from wood, metal, tile, stone inlay, and hand painting. Inspired by the exquisite nature surrounding him near Aspen, David Nelson works directly with architects and clients to design site-specific sculptures for homes, businesses, and public areas. TJ Thompson is a Painter of Horses…and the people they own. From Colorado, TJ captures ordinary moments from routine lives with a unique story.


After teaching in Longmont for 20 years, Richard Tucker moved to Loveland. There he was surrounded by bronze casters and sculptors and became an amateur sculptor himself. In 1993 he went pro, and has received a number of awards for his “lively impressions of humanity and the animal world in bronze”. Sandy Murphy, also from Colorado, designs jewelry in which “sophistication and elegance meet bold and daring”.


And, of course, Craig and Dusty Shutt, two Colorado nature lovers and jewelry artists who combine vision with skill to create pieces with a Colorado High Country Flair. The Shutt’s love for Colorado’s unmatchable beauty is hand-crafted into each piece of jewelry they design. Come see the quality and unique style of Dusty Shutt Silver, Ltd. jewelry for yourself. Peruse the website…or come take a look at the Arizona Fine Arts Expo, booth 36, now through April 3rd!
