Happy Holidays!  As the snow begins to transform Crested Butte into a winter wonderland, we are preparing for a very festive holiday season!
A White Wilderness featuring new, winter paintings by Stephen C. Datz will opened on December 17th and runs through January 8th. Please come to a free oil painting demonstration by Datz on December 26th from 1-3pm. Later in the evening of the 26th, from 5-8pm,  please join us for the artist’s reception.  Meet Stephen and help us celebrate his spectacular show!  Hors d’oeurves and refreshments will be served.  For a sneak peak of his poetic winter landscapes, please click here. (Click on any painting to begin a slide show view).
On New Year’s Eve, the galleries of Crested Butte will host a special ArtWalk evening from 5-9pm.  Please drop by the gallery to enjoy new paintings and a toast to the New Year! A number of our artists will be in attendance!  Appetizers and sparkling drinks will be served.
Our artists consistently receive attention on the national level. This month read about Dave Santillanes featured in Southwest Art Magazine, Susiehyer featured
as a part of 10 Women Landscape Painter’s in the November/December issue of Art of the West and
Stephen C. Datz  featured in the December issue of Western Art Collector.
We hope to see you in the gallery soon! We have many new paintings to share with you.  For a preview, please click
