Weehawken Creative Arts and Ridgway Chautauqua Scoiety are proud to be members of the Alpenglow Arts Alliance, a groundbreaking collaborative of nine arts organizations in Ouray County, working together to promote each other’s events and opportunities through a unified voice. 

Alpenglow Arts Alliance includes (Ouray County Performing Arts Guild, The Sherbino Theater, The Wright Opera House, Public Art Ridgway, Mountain Air Music Series, Ridgway Concert Series, The Ridgway Creative District, Ouray County Artists Association). We are similarly-oriented organizations who have formed and joined the Alpenglow Arts Alliance for the specific purpose of promoting arts for both local community development and to promote our region as a destination for visitors. A Memorandum of Understanding has been put into effect and the (now nine) organizations meet monthly for two hours per visit to talk calendars, promotions and communications. The major result to date has been a substantial and unified presence in print and digital mediums compared to previous years

The expectation is that the promotional arm of the alliance has the potential to cover the entire region, making the arts agencies and organizations of Western Colorado a visible force and destination.

610 Arts Collective Gallery Submission

The Ridgway Chautauqua Society (owner and operator of The Sherbino Theater) and Weehawken Creative Arts partnership just took an exciting turn:   RCS has just purchased the building on Clinton Street next to the Sherbino to develop as an art exhibition space as well as the Weehawken and RCS headquarters!   The building is called "The 610 Arts Collective."  

 

There are two street-front spaces in the building:  one space that will act as a gallery, cash and carry items, and the other will be a 3-4 week solo or group exhibition space.  

 

Our new Gallery space at 610 Clinton Street is at the heart of the Ridgway Creative District!  Ridgway has a new street landscaped downtown historic district that has turned the streets of Ridgway into a tourist destination.   The 610 Arts Collective is surrounded by great restaurants is currently across the street from several creative studios and creative spaces.  By 2020, there will be an official "Space to Create" structure across the street as well!  Now is the time to get in!
