‘Artifacts from the New Frontier’ on display through Tuesday

“Artifacts from the New Frontier” continues to run at Town Park Gallery. You only have a few more days to view exceptional work by Pagosa Springs Advanced High School Art Students. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from noon-4 p.m. and this exhibit will run through May 26.

Our next exhibit, “Animal Verses for Grown-up Children,” will open with a reception and reading by John Graves on Thursday evening, May 28, from 5-7 p.m. Please see the press release in this section of The Preview.

Randall Davis Portrait Series

The portrait series, led by Randall Davis, finishes May 30. You will draw from a live model and the class will be especially interesting as we will be doing several posed sketches. We need a minimum of six people pre-registered in order to hire the model. The cost for the class is $35, plus an extra fee of $8-$10 for the model, and we ask that you call PSAC at 265-5020 to register.

The PSAC Gallery in Town Park is now on spring/summer hours. We are open Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. You can also visit our Web site at www.pagosa-arts.com for additional information.
