Experience Dalton Gallery

Welcome! I'm Shane Dalton, an artist based in the captivating landscape of Silver City, New Mexico. My artistic journey is deeply rooted in the arid beauty of the Southwest desert. Having resided in the Sonoran desert of Tucson, Arizona for many years, I developed a profound appreciation for its raw allure, which ultimately became the cornerstone of my creative expression.

In the mid-'90s, I embarked on a journey with acrylic paints, capturing the ethereal essence of the desert through vibrant landscapes adorned with sweeping skies and iconic cacti. These early experiences sculpted my artistic vision and ignited a passion for translating the spirit of the desert onto canvas.

Five years ago, I found myself drawn to the rugged charm of the Gila region, where I discovered a new wellspring of inspiration. This shift in environment has profoundly influenced the evolution of my artwork, infusing it with fresh perspectives and a renewed sense of vitality.

At the heart of my process lies an intimate connection with my medium. Utilizing a paintbrush no wider than 3mm, I meticulously craft each stroke, dedicating countless hours to the intricate linework that defines my pieces. The result is a tapestry of colors and forms that encapsulate the essence of the desert landscape, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in its timeless beauty.

Thank you for joining me on this artistic journey. I invite you to explore my portfolio and experience the boundless wonders of the Southwest through my eyes.
