Fall Art Festival celebrates Glenwood Springs history with special exhibit

Kelley Cox Post Independent

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – The 48th annual Fall Art Festival pays tribute, in part, to Glenwood Springs’ 125th birthday when it opens at the Glenwood Ramada Inn today.

This year’s festival will have a special exhibit featuring artists’ interpretations of “125 Years of Glenwood History.” The exhibit is a collaboration between the festival’s sponsoring group, the Glenwood Springs Art Guild, and the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association.

The chamber will judge entries in the history exhibit and choose one piece to purchase and present to its 2010 Citizen of the Year. The winning entry will also be featured on the community greeting card for the coming year.

The annual art festival is the largest nonjuried fine art show in Colorado and includes 325 artists from several states this year, featuring fine art paintings, collages, graphics, pottery and sculpture.

Events begin at 8 a.m. today with the “Bargain Bin” sale, where fine art is priced at $125 or less. The main galleries open at 3 p.m. today, following the judging, and will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily until Sunday, Sept. 26. The show concludes at 2:30 p.m. that day.

Admission is free, and the public is encouraged to browse the galleries and attend free art demonstrations each day. For a schedule and other information, or to become a purchase patron, visit http://www.glenwoodspringsartguild.com, or e-mail faf@glenwoodspringsartguild.com.
