SHY RABBIT SPRING Group Show features 100 works of art

The SHY RABBIT SPRING Group Show continues through Memorial Day, featuring 100 original works of art by select gallery artists.

This eclectic display includes unique sculptural and functional ceramics, hand-pressed monoprints, aquatint etchings, abstract paintings, and ceramic ikebana containers with floral arrangements.

The 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.

Visitors are welcome to view the show and to tour this expansive 4,000 square foot arts center and gallery at their leisure.

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.

This “hidden treasure” is located off the beaten path, 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 4 p.m.aily, at no charge.

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