Eden in the Evergreens: The New Aspen Gallery
The Aspen Idea
The vast, picturesque views of Aspen seem to give aspirations to the otherwise small town which has nevertheless put itself on the map as being a sophisticated center of artistic expression. Eden Gallery is a vibrant addition to Aspen’s established art scene as well as the mountain town’s philosophy of “the Aspen Idea” which encompasses art, culture, and wellness; everything that makes Aspen a destination for those seeking renewal of the mind, body, and spirit.
Aspen Fine Art
The new two-story gallery covers 7,200 square feet, ample room to accommodate the signature collection of colorful contemporary art that has become synonymous with Eden Gallery. The space allows for exploring old favorites as well as encountering new discoveries in the latest exclusive collections.
While each artist’s collection remains true to their original style, it is possible to see the common thread between them as they all showcase the dynamic, bright, optimistic designs that can be seen in Eden’s fine art galleries worldwide.
The Story of Aspen
Amidst the sweeping mountain range dotted with aspen trees and evergreens, the little town of Aspen was originally founded as a mining camp during the Colorado silver rush. Industrialists Walter and Elizabeth Paepcke are largely credited for turning Aspen into the center for arts and culture that it is today. Three Aspen institutes have national importance: the Aspen Music Festival and School, the Aspen Institute, and the Aspen Center for Physics. Not to mention, downtown Aspen has been transformed over the years into an upscale shopping district.
It is here that Eden Gallery has made its home on East Cooper Avenue, becoming neighbors with nearby retailers like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Prada, Moncler, Valentino, Loro Piana, Lululemon, and Ralph Lauren.

Angelo Accardi’s art is recognizable by its inclusion of conspicuous characters and animals. In setting the stage for scenes in his surreal artworks, Accardi inserts animals into each scene in a myriad of ways.

The ubiquitous ostrich makes repeat appearances, not only as part of the display painted before us but as a placeholder of an important guest not visibly included in the painting: the audience. Despite the diversity of the artwork settings; portraying Japanese gardens, city streets, and empty art galleries, the ostrich is a distinct Accardi trademark that welcomes visitors into the artist’s surreal world.
Dorit Levinstein Originals
Dorit Levinstein is a multi-talented artist best known for her eclectic, colorfully patterned sculptures. By using metals like bronze and aluminum, Levinstein is able to create malleable forms that playfully twist and twirl to form her desired shape, whether it be figures dancing in unison or a vibrant statement of love.
However, perhaps the most exciting aspect of Levinstein’s artworks comes from her vibrant color palette, as each sculpture is hand-painted in the distinctive decorative style that makes Dorit Levinstein’s artwork instantly recognizable.
