Group show open to the public daily at SHY RABBIT

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

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

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

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.

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

This hidden treasure is located off the beaten path on the west end of Pagosa Springs (also known as Uptown) in a wooded commercial district, in a fully renovated, former auto repair shop.

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

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

Coffee has been teaching these classes since their inception in 2007 and continues to draw in large numbers of new and repeat students from throughout the country. 

Coffee’s monotypes have been shown in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout the country, and are included in dozens of national and international private and public corporations.

Coffee’s prints are featured in the SPRING Group Show, along with several by select advanced students.

SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts: Gallery, Studio & Workshops is located at 333 Bastille Drive, two blocks north of U.S. 160, off of North Pagosa Boulevard. The facility is open to the public 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, at no charge.
