Fourth Friday Artwalk, La Veta Gallery on Main


Image: “ROOSTING,” Encaustic and Mixed Media, 10 x 8.

Have you ever been to La Veta, Colorado? I hadn’t, not until I received an invitation to drive south a couple hours to visit La Veta Gallery on Main. Now, I’m inviting you!

At the base of the Spanish Peaks, along the Scenic “Highway of Legends” La Veta is a quaint, laid-back little town that celebrates art all summer-long with “4th Friday Artwalks.”

La Veta Gallery on Main invites artists from all around Colorado to participate in their featured artists program. Friday, June 23, 2017, from 5 – 7p, the gallery will host a Featured Artist Reception for Nancy Utterback and myself.

Nancy’s salt fired ceramics are not your usual pots. And of course, there’s nothing “usual” about my encaustic paintings. Nancy and I will each talk briefly about our work. And there will be concurrent art exhibitions up and down Main Street.

If you can’t make it to the opening, we’ll miss you, but keep in mind, the artwork will remain on display through July 24th.
