Gunnison ArtWalk at the GAC
July 1 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Friday, July 1, 5 – 8 pm. Fridays on the Courtyard featuring Between Drifts Main Gallery: “Life in the West” Cheri Isgreen Watercolor and mixed media paintings and sculptures by Cheri Isgreen inspired by life in the Rocky Mountains of Western Colorado. "Creating art feeds my soul." Cheri's new work is bold. She approaches each composition without rules, embracing the freedom to mix media with abandon & to compose with bright color & strong values. Secondary Gallery: “Acceptance” Jennifer Lynn Butler Intentionally exploring the crux of something that we find great passion and drive toward, unexpectedly discovering the root actually comes from something we view as a negative or difficult aspect about ourselves. In this exploration, we seek out why it was created in the first place, finding freedom in learning about, understanding, accepting, and nurturing this tendency, trait, way of being or thinking. Realizing and giving credit to how it has truly tried to serve us in a positive way, we now honor it with compassion and find a balance in how it lives within us. Featured Shop Artist: Karolina Szumilas, Ceramicist ** Rock The Block Raffle RE-DRAWING for the Pedepo EBike will be on the GAC Courtyard at 7 pm!**
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
