Embrace the change of season by enjoying in the SPRING Group Show, currently on display at SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts through Memorial Day.

SHY RABBIT presents four to six exhibitions annually in its expansive 4,000 square-foot arts center and gallery.

Visitors are welcome to view the show and to tour the entire art complex at their leisure, experiencing all that SHY RABBIT has to offer.

Workshops are also offered regularly in ceramics and printmaking, instructed by professional artist and SHY RABBIT Creative Director D. Michael Coffee.

This “hidden treasure” is located — quite unexpectedly — on the west end of Pagosa Springs in a wooded commercial district, in a fully renovated, former auto-repair shop.

Visitors are often surprised to discover that SHY RABBIT houses a working ceramic studio and fine art gallery, two mixed-media workshops, and two rotating exhibition spaces.

SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts: Gallery, Studio and Workshops is open to the public 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, at no charge.

Recent visitors to the SPRING Group Show commented:

“Fabulous show!”

“Get on over to SHY RABBIT to see it, soon!”

“This is a wonderful gallery and art space! I just love it!”

“I wish that we would have discovered SHY RABBIT sooner.”

This eclectic group show features a wide variety of highly original sculptural and functional ceramics, hand-pressed monoprints, aquatint etchings, abstract paintings, and ceramic ikebana containers with floral arrangements by select SHY RABBIT Gallery artists, many of who are nationally recognized and respected art educators.

The SPRING Group Show featured artists are: Sandy Applegate, Colo.; Marti Bledsoe, Texas; D. Michael Coffee, Colo.; Prof. Patrick Shia Crabb, Calif; Charla Ellis, Colo.; Ron Fundingsland, Colo.; Karl Isberg, Colo.; Jeff Pender, N.C.; and Prof. Brad Schwieger, Ohio.

Established in 2004 by D. Michael and Denise Coffee, SHY RABBIT has presented 35 exhibitions to date, showcasing the works of local and nationally-recognized artists.
