Artwork by San Luis Valley Artists at Republic Plaza
Last night we attended an art exhibit at Republic Plaza in Downtown Denver. “Artists from the San Luis Valley” is a mixture of over thirty artists from all around the San Luis Valley in southern Colorado. My fiance is a native Coloradan, from the San Luis Valley, where we visit family at least once a year, so this was a “must see” exhibit for us.
The exhibit includes some truly exceptional paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, pottery and jewelry. There is also an eclectic mixture of artwork; ranging from landscapes of the San Luis Valley to more contemporary abstract selections. It’s worth it to drop by and view the presented works.
Last night there was an artist’s reception, but unfortunately, we only met Lorraine Solis Roberts. She has two amazingly detailed portraits done with india ink on clay board. Some of the other featured artists include: Henry Woolbert & Kathy Park, Roger Eriksen, David Montgomery, Bertha Gotterup, Tatjana Krizmanic, and Tom Lockhart, his Clouds Forming on Handkerchief Mesa shown right.
The exhibit runs until July 24th at Republic Plaza, 370 17th Street. The building is open Monday thru Friday from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM and Saturday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
