We 💛 artists. YellowDog has collaborated with many talented artists over the years — usually by making prints of their original works. We’ve helped artists productize their art with everything from giclee prints on canvas wraps and archival posters to stickers and postcards.
In this series, we interview a new artist each month and talk to them about the life and business of being an artist here in Colorado. Today we’re talking with Georgann Low.
YellowDog: Hi Georgann! Can you briefly tell us what kind of art you do?
Georgann Low: I’m an artist, a singer, and a writer as my life is about self-expression. I use music, art, and literature to document my journeys, both inner and outer.
YD: What has been your journey into an artistic career?
GL: I wasn’t trained to become an artist. In fact, I’ve almost always resisted being trained except to learn what I loved and needed to know, such as the French language and English history. That’s because since I was a kid I’ve always felt I knew best when it came to my own self-expression. I wanted to create from the depth of my awareness to express either the peace and beauty or the confusion and angst of the moment.
So my art burgeons up from my innermost source and I use it to help me through transitions. I wrote a book called Dancing Alone and it is filled with the kind of expressive art I’m talking about. I dance with art! My art has helped me to embrace my solitude and express my joy. Ah!
YD: Describe your artistic style in three words.
GL: Soulful, vulnerable, alive.
YD: Do you sell your original pieces? If so, how and where?
GL: For several years I had a gallery in Denver’s Golden Triangle and sold my stuff remarkably well. We’d often get the overflow from the Denver Art Museum. One of the finest moments for me was when an impressive gentleman from (I think) Iran came in and paid top dollar for one of my zanier and most expensive works. He sent his chauffeur back to pick it up.
I’ve also exhibited everywhere from Mary Mackey Gallery and the Leon Gallery here in Denver, as well as galleries in France. A fun way to sell my work has been to offer open studio art sales from my uptown loft.
YD: Do you sell prints as well?
YD: Where can we find your latest art?
GL: My latest work is available to view by appointment. Unlike my earlier zen-like art of the moment, these take a long time to complete. I’m looking forward to displaying them en masse because they speak to who I’ve become. Exciting!
YD: Where do you go (virtually or in-person) to experience great art?
GL: I love MOMA in New York, mostly because of the fabulous Kandinsky collection. The Picasso Museum in Paris is another favorite. I like DAM here in Denver too.
YD: Are you a dog person or a cat person?
GL: I have an imaginary cat.
YD: Go-to drink of choice?
GL: I like to drink espresso, tea and wine – not at the same time, of course. I also like to eat delicious food.
YD: Thanks so much, Georgann! We are lucky to have a creative treasure like you in the Mile High City. You’ve got that spark that makes Denver (and our clients) great.
