The Pagosa Springs Arts Council helps ensure a flourishing community through support of the arts. We are a nonprofit corporation that relies on membership, donations, fund-raisers, volunteers and grants to provide Pagosans and visitors to our area with his medley of programs. Some of the events sponsored by PSAC are gallery exhibits, juried art competitions, workshops and classes, club meetings, tours and camps, as well as educational scholarships for our youth.
The time has arrived for the 2009 PSAC-sponsored Home and Garden Tour — Sunday, July 12, from 1-4 p.m.
There will be four, delightful homes to visit. The tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center Higher Grounds and the PSAC Town Park Gallery. If an extra guest shows up, tickets will also be available at the homes.
There will be refreshments at two of the homes, and art gifts and small planters at the other two homes for purchase.
Here is a brief review of the homes we featured in previous PREVIEW articles
The Moomaw Home
Bob and Janis have been in this 3,800 square-foot home with a very open floor plan for seven years. The features accent the view of the 52-acre grounds. A delightful presentation of personal artifacts makes for a welcoming feel, and leaves one with a desire to know the owners. The deck, with its fireplace, the barn with an upstairs apartment, and a guesthouse, all contribute to an extensively developed and integrated landscape. Join in for the warm welcome here.
The Bard Home
Jack and Janice have lived in Pagosa for four years. Jack is with a steel manufacturing company, but he, his sister from Albuquerque and Janice, have an exquisite ability to coordinate this 2,962 square-foot, distinctive home. This timber home includes many luxuries and provides an exceptionally inviting view from all areas. (Don’t miss the one from the lower level, looking up.) The outdoor cooking area will be a favorite.
The Scott Home
Bob and Lisa have lived in this five-bedroom, two-story home for 10 years. The 120-acre property is fully used, accommodating a family’s involvement with each other and with nature. The children, 8 and 13, are at the center of this household and the environment captures the essence of each individual and their blessings.
The Bledsoe Home
Al and Marti have a three-bedroom home with a very relaxing and restful aura. The clean and open floor plan is inspired for and by art. The softness of the Feng Shui principle is accented by the round corners in the house. The landscaping has been developed in the nine years they have lived here, with its labyrinth recreating the ancient expression of thanks and remembrance of the divine in all things.
Once again, we thank you for your support of this annual tour of local homes and gardens, we and are looking forward to sharing some time with you at the 2009 tour.
