Gilman Contemporary

Gilman Contemporary

Located in the resort community of Sun Valley, Gilman Contemporary has established itself as a leading contemporary gallery in the Northwest. The award-winning gallery represents established as well as up and coming artists whose recognition in the art world continues to grow. Collectors across the US and abroad appreciate the unparalleled service and knowledge L’Anne and her colleagues provide. Throughout the year, the gallery exhibits new work by each of their nationally and internationally celebrated painters, sculptors and photographers.
In a state that is not known as a contemporary art hub, Idaho based Gilman Contemporary has worked to promote emerging artists such as Maria Svarbova and Kelly Ording while also delivering mainstays such as Hunt Slonem and Nick Brandt.

Michael Massaia's black and white photographs capture New York City in the early hours of repose. Massaia's work demonstrates a deep understanding of traditional photographic aesthetic and process, while evoking a sense of modern isolation.

Oakland-based painter Kelly Ording's meditative works on dyed paper and canvas are exercises in intuitive mark-making. The work suggests both imagined landscapes and geometric abstractions.

Through a dissection of mass media, James Verbicky creates abstract paintings and mixed media work that embody an orderly approach to the often chaotic onslaught of words and images seen in our daily lives. Verbicky often references art history in the same breath as popular mass media. Each piece has an opening for personal internalization and interpretation.

Maria Svarbova installation

Slovakian photographer Maria Svarbova creates hauntingly still images of women in Socialist Era public swimming pools. Her work on the series In the Swimming Pool earned her a 2018 Hasselblad Masters Award in Fine Art Photography. Her signature style merges cool stillness, a striking color palette and unspoken tension.
