The Colorado Summer Tour 2015 has so far been a rousing success, and it couldn’t have been done without you! From the beauty of Aspen to the charm of Beaver Creek, we’ve experienced an array of breathtaking and inspiring backdrops for some of the country’s most coveted high-end artists.
This weekend, we continue our journey through Colorado and land on one of our favorite spots, nestled deep into the majestic background of the Rocky Mountains. Frisco, Colorado is a town of art lovers and adventurers, and Main Street is their preferred spot. Make plans to meet us there August 8-9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. as the town welcomes the best and brightest artistic talent in the U.S. for the 9th Annual Main Street to the Rockies Art Festival.
Why have we chosen Frisco? Aside from the surroundings that make for a spectacular, one-of-a-kind experience, the Town of Frisco is a haven for great dining, shopping, and entertainment. Families from all over come to Frisco for the scenic attractions, delicious food and family-friendly atmosphere. In addition, annual events like the Main Street to the Rockies Art Festival make it a must-see Colorado destination for art fans big and small.
Howard Alan Events is proud to bring this two-day, juried fine art festival to the Rockies year after year, giving patrons a chance to experience art in a cozy and familiar setting. As always, the show is free and open to the public, with access to over 100 artists from all over the country. Whether you’re an aficionado looking for something new to add to your personal collection, or you’re simply a visitor checking out possible holiday presents for the art lovers in your life, you are guaranteed to find something you’ll love, at a price you’ll love. Plus, you’ll get to know the artists who create pieces you cherish, and perhaps even make those artists your new favorites.
This year’s Featured Art Giveaway is by the gifted and adventurous digital artist Vicki Barrett. Whether photographing in the depths of the sea or in the highest elevations in Colorado, Vicki’s digital depictions of the natural world are magical and transformational. It’s no wonder that her work is lauded both here at home and as far away as the Netherlands. Her giveaway piece is a very special, numbered limited edition 16″ x 20″ metal piece mounted on a black box entitled “The Forest.” It was inspired by a trip to Crested Butte during a snow storm. Visit Vicki Barrett’s booth this weekend to enter the giveaway and get to know this magnificent artist one-on-one.
Don’t miss the other amazing artists who will be there at the Main Street to the Rockies Art Festival celebrating with us, including: Randy Polk, master fine jeweler, whose brilliant pieces are as colorful as they are decadent; Julie Vance, who transforms the finest fabrics into handbags that are simply a work of art; Anthony Grant, whose bright and emotive interpretation of the world around him takes painting to the next level; Susan Elliot, whose original work is deeply introspective yet charmingly demure; and Jim Mofhitz, fine craftsman with the gift of transforming wood work into whimsical conversation pieces.
We look forward to seeing you at the 9th Annual Main Street to the Rockies Art Festival this Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 8-9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Downtown Frisco. Keep following us on Facebook and don’t forget to check the art festival calendar on our website to plan out your art show itinerary for the second half of the year.
