Sotheby’s Makes Aspen Debut with Downtown Art Gallery

Posted on June 20, 2022 by Aspen Snowmass Sotheby's International Realty

We are thrilled to welcome Sotheby’s to the Rocky Mountains! After successful gallery openings in Palm Beach, Monaco and East Hampton, Sotheby’s is pleased to open a permanent gallery in Aspen. Sotheby’s is one of the finest art purveyors in the world, and the iconic brand on which our real estate company was founded. Sotheby’s Aspen opened its doors on Friday, June 17 in a 2,500-square-foot gallery space on East Cooper Avenue.

At Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty, we are proud to share the Sotheby’s name, which speaks to the integrity, authenticity, and heritage of a remarkable global brand. Sotheby’s International Realty® is built on the centuries-long prestige of the world’s preeminent auction house. The acclaimed auction house, established in 1744 in London for collectors of art and other fine possessions, expanded to New York City in 1955. Sotheby’s International Realty inherited the iconic brand name and built on its legacy by delivering unrivaled real estate services. Our unmatched reputation gives our listings the best-in-class exposure they deserve. It assures our clients that they are working with experts they can trust no matter where they are in the world. From fine art to luxury real estate, Sotheby’s prestige is unparalleled.


Just like our real estate company, the gallery is led by a team of Aspen locals. The gallery will bring together a curatorial rotation of exceptional works of art and design throughout the calendar year. The gallery’s first show, “In Focus: Warhol on Paper,” is a can’t-miss this summer event



Aspen was special to Warhol. “To get away from the bustling city, Aspen existed as an escape for Warhol. Referring to it as his ‘toy town,’ it served as a place for him to reconnect with nature, create meaningful memories with friends, and partake in various outdoor pursuits,” a Sotheby’s statement read. This show comes on the heels of The Aspen Art Museum’s 2021 winter-long, museum-wide exhibition “Andy Warhol: Lifetimes” that focused on the biographical underpinnings of Warhol's practice and expanded on the less exposed aspects of the artist. The Sotheby’s Aspen gallery’s summer show will specifically exhibit Warhol’s output on paper drawings. Coinciding with the Warhol exhibit, you can also find a selection of Contemporary  highlights, including works by Damien Hirst, Lynda Benglis, Peter Doig, David Hockney, John Chamberlain and Takashi Murakami.
