  Local artist opens new gallery
  Staff report

     Cassandra Sharon is a fifth-generation Colorado native from a rural farming and ranching family in Southern Colorado.
   
   For 20 years, Sharon has incorporated her background into her career as a professional artist and sculptor. She has shown in galleries throughout the United States.
   
   Dancing Wolf Gallery in Elbert is the new site for Sharon’s “A Cowgirls’ Heart” gallery featuring Sharon’s fine art sculpture, along with two other artists to be announced. She also carries a selection of made-in-Colorado/USA gifts, western clothing, handbags, and fine art and crafts.
   
   Sharon currently owns Painted Pony Inc.; both her studio and home are in the Bijou Basin northeast of Falcon.
   
   Horses, cattle and burros are just a few of her favorite subjects; she refers to her work as “whimsical and stylized.”
   
   “With my background in rural Colorado farms and ranches, I’ve been asked why I chose the “whimsy” vs. stark realism. I have to attribute my style to being immersed as a child in the well-known C.S. Lewis “Chronicles of Narnia. “I still read and reread them, and love his writings for adults as well.”
   
   See the gallery’s ad on Page 8 of the print version of The New Falcon Herald for details and information on the Feb. 14 shopping event.
