Award Winning Artist Stephanie Birdsall Joins Saks Galleries.

Three Beautiful New Works By Acclaimed Artist

Join Saks Galleries as we welcome master artist, Stephanie Birdsall to the gallery in Cherry Creek, Denver Colorado. Just in time for spring.

Stephanie Birdsall has painted three new works for her first season at Saks Galleries. Visit the gallery in Cherry Creek Tuesday - Saturday. We open at 10:00 am.

Stephanie Birdsall received her formal training at the City and Guilds of London Art School in England. She has exhibited at the Royal Academy in London, England, Bargemon, France and both the Salmagundi and National Arts Clubs in New York. Her work has garnered recognition and over 40 awards in national and international juried exhibitions. The French Publication, L'Art du Pastel, recognized her as one of the leading international pastel artists.

In the early 2000's, Stephanie met an artist who would be her friend and mentor—renowned representational painter and author, Richard Schmid. Richard suggested that she start painting in oils along with her pastels. Schmid invited Stephanie to paint alongside him and it was during these Plein Air painting sessions that Stephanie blossomed as an artist of note, resulting in many awards including the Grumbacher Gold Medallion Award, the Degas Pastel Society Exceptional Merit Award.

Ms. Birdsall's work has been displayed in select museum exhibitions and included in several Permanent Museum collections including the Florida Museum of Art and Culture which held a one woman show of her work.

Stephanie Birdsall will be featured in our upcoming "America the Beautiful" exhibition opening June 22, 2012.
