Kate Sammons, Southwest Art and the Scottsdale Salon

Once again Kate Sammons has garnered national attention with honors at this year’s Scottsdale Salon and a special feature in the August issue of Southwest Art Magazine.

 At the successful launch of Legacy Gallery's annual Scottsdale Salon of Fine Art this spring, the winner of the Still Life Merit Award sponsored by Fine Art Connoisseur was Kate Sammons.  Her exhibited work, The Blue Hour (2011, Oil on panel, 19 x 16 in.) was chosen among a salvo of impressive works.  We congratulate Ms. Sammons on her outstanding achievement!

  We were also thrilled to find Kate as one of this year’s Artists to Watch in the August issue of Southwest Art Magazine.  The feature also makes mention of her recent honors at The Scottsdale Salon:

  When Kate Sammons received the top award for a still-life painting at the recent Scottsdale Salon of Fine Art, held at Legacy Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ, she was surprised and overwhelmed. Her elegant tableau, THE BLUE HOUR, had captivated the judge and collectors alike. The painting was inspired by the simple desire to explore color harmonies and textures, Sammons says. “I also was struck by the reflection on the bottle of the church across the street [from my studio],” she adds.
