SHY RABBIT SPRING group show, countdown to closing

You don’t want to miss out on enjoying the SHY RABBIT SPRING Group Show, on display through the Memorial Day weekend.

This prestigious annual exhibit features 100 skillfully crafted works of art by select gallery artists, including 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.

SHY RABBIT houses a working ceramic studio and fine art gallery, two mixed-media workshops and two rotating exhibition spaces.

The SHY RABBIT SPRING Group Show 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.

SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts: Gallery, Studio & Workshops is open to the public Thursday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at no charge.

Visitors are invited 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 auto-repair shop.

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