June 4-28 2024:

Twinkle Valley and Beyond - A Collection of Starry Images from Paonia, Colorado’s Robin Arthur

Please come celebrate this work with us on Friday, June 7th during Ridgway's First Friday Event!  5-7 pm at the 610 Arts Collective

Paonia, Colorado artist Robin Arthur grew up in Texas and earned a BFA in drawing and painting from the University of North Texas in the culturally thriving town of Denton. She began her professional art career in San Antonio painting vibrant and joyful custom pet portraits with a nod to Mexico’s Day of the Dead style using brilliant colors, skulls, flowers and butterflies. Her animal portrait business now encompasses a wide range of wildlife, farm animals, pets, reptiles and birds, with a recent focus on exotic chickens and their dramatic plumage. She has painted hundreds of animal portraits for happy collectors around the globe. In 2019, Robin chose to take a sabbatical from the pressures of a commission-based art practice, then painting a well-received series of expressive abstracts. Now residing on a mesa high above the North Fork Valley of western Colorado, she is creating both oil and acrylic landscapes from the beauty that surrounds her.

July 2 - 28 2024:

Photography Invitational

Featuring works by Steve Traudt (GJ), Lora Slawitchka (Ouray) and Susan Humphrey (Olathe)

The 610 Arts Collective reconfigured the gallery in late May 2023.  What was once referred to as "The Gallery Shop" is now the "Exhibition Space" and what was once the exhibition space is now the shop. 

 

After four years of watching human behavior in the space, we expect that this move will be beneficial to increase traffic, decrease theft of small items and  most of all, offer a deeper experience between the user and the exhibiting artist in a more-private space for reflection. 

Upgrades were made in the exhibition gallery including upgraded lighting and a hanging system. 

If you are interested in applying for a 2024 exhibition slot in the "new" space, head here.

September 6-Oct 5 2024:

"Postcards from the Edge"

A Themed Exhibition of Original Works by Area Artists

CALL FOR ARTISTS

 

Postcards from the Edge ~  An Themed Exhibition of Original Works by Area Artists

For this show artists should focus on creating an original “postcard” on a frameless 5” x 7” surface (of your choice) that answers the question” where have we been?” or “where are we going?”. The work can display the front or back (side with writing) OR both sides of a postcard, using any images or writing of your choosing. 

3D work is acceptable, but should still engage with the theme and represent as a postcard -- meaning the depth of the piece should be minimal. When thinking about creating your “postcard” be sure to focus on one of those question prompts.   Your imagination is the limit, as the image you feature could be entirely fictional or abstract. Registration forms are available at 610arts.com or at The 610 Arts Collective. If you need a canvas to work with, we will have some available for purchase at the 610 Arts Collective gallery!
