Hospital art exhibit opens Saturday

Artwork has been submitted and pieces juried for acceptance.

The food, decor and entertainment are in place. 

Now, please join in the opening celebration at the Juried Art Exhibition, 6-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Pagosa Mountain Hospital.

Pagosa Springs Arts Council — a non-profit organization with a main objective of promoting local art and artists — is co-sponsoring this activity for our community enjoyment.

The show will hang through Dec. 11 with each artwork having a listed price for sponsorship in the hospital’s or clinic’s permanent art collection.

The silent auction has numerous pieces available for your personal collection: art glass items, original watercolors, pastels and photographs. It also includes prints, carved limestone bookends, ceramic pieces and several other works donated by local artists.

Auction proceeds will be used to make up the balance remaining on the tree carving project by Chad Haspels, with any overage benefitting campus monument signage on the hospital grounds.

Artists with at least one piece in the exhibition are Sandy Applegate, Virginia Bartlett, Lavern Burton, Ken Einig, Laurel Epps, Maria Kolpin, Stephanie Lochbaum, Dale Malaney, Jeanine Malaney, Laurie McAnlis-McCreary, Pierre Mion and Karina Silver.

Meet the artists and enjoy the live entertainment, refreshments and auction.

Everyone is welcome.
