Habitat for Humanity to host Recycled Arts Show

Are you wondering how to celebrate Earth Day this coming weekend?

Join Habitat for Humanity of Archuleta County for our first annual Recycled Arts Show to take place April 20-21 at the Native Trails building located next to Boss Hogg’s Restaurant.

Local artists from a variety of backgrounds will display and sell their original artwork.

Dee Pitchon, one such artist, explains why she creates recycled art: “For well over 40 years I have been taking things apart and looking in trash cans to find all sorts of things that are useful for art. Everything has a new life in it, from buttons on an old coat to part of a dish cloth from the 1950s. It is important to me to be able to reclaim something before it goes into a landfill.”

On Friday, April 20, we will host a Gallery Opening and Meet the Artists Event. Enjoy an evening filled with incredible recycled artwork and music made and performed by Pagosa’s very own artists. Sample hors d’oeuvres from local caterers and sip Habitat’s Home Built Blend coffee roasted by Luna Roasters, as well as other refreshments.

Bid on a variety of packages at the silent auction.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased in advance at the Habitat for Humanity office and the Chamber of Commerce or can be purchased at the door.

On Saturday, April 21, the public is invited to experience the art gallery and purchase artwork from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Entrance is $2 or two cans of food for the local food banks. Entrance for families is $5.

Buy your tickets now, before they sell out. To purchase tickets and for more information, call Cindi Galabota at 264-6960 or visit our website at
