About William Havu Gallery
Established in Aspen in 1973, the William Havu Gallery, in its current location since 1998 is engaged in an ongoing dialogue through its 7 exhibitions a year with regionalism as it affects and is affected by both national and international trends in realism and abstraction. With a strong emphasis on mid-career, established artists, the gallery also shows emerging regional artists of exceptional maturity & quality in an AIA award winning, post-modern building.The gallery has been in the framing business since its inception in 1973 & continues to offer framing services to our clients. With 40+ years in the business of mounting exhibits worthy of critical review, the William Havu Gallery continues to acquire artists of regional importance & national acclaim.
The William Havu Gallery is one of only a handful of top-tier contemporary venues in Denver. Havu specializes in the work of advanced or mid-career artists, most of whom work in Colorado or the Southwest.
Michael Paglia, Westword Art Critic
More than any other commercial gallery in Denver, William Havu knows how to mix and match its artists into exhibits that bring out the best in them, and each other. It helps that its roster is full of talent, but it takes a separate kind of curatorial talent to make a show so cohesive that it stands as an actual exhibit, a pleasure to visit, even if you’re not out shopping for art.
