The ArtRoom Collective First Friday April Art Crawl

  • Tel: (970) 759-4620

The ArtRoom Collective First Friday Art Crawl is April 7, from 4pm - 7pm at the Smiley Building. Come talk with local artists, be inspired by creative work, or buy a local, handcrafted item for yourself or a special someone to celebrate Spring! The Smiley Cafe will be open for a warm beverage, glass of wine or a treat, and live music by Denise Leslie & Friends will accompany the evening.

April's Featured Artist is Cindy Atchison of Cindy Miller Atchison Design | Art. She is known for her stylistic landscape paintings in both oil and acrylic. Her goal is to inspire your personal pursuit of beauty and open your world to renewed, deeper connections with nature, your work, and other people – elements that make our collective journeys so sweet. On April 7 at 5:30pm, she'll demonstrate the unique qualities of both oil and acrylic paints. Witness the creation of two cloudscape paintings in oil and acrylic to compare these two mediums. Take a look at her design and art at her website: .

The ArtRoom Collective at The Smiley is a diverse, working studio gallery where artists create, collaborate and share their passion with the community. See creation in action! The ArtRoom Collective is Durango's working studio gallery where 22 artists, jewelers, potters, leather crafters and others create and sell their handmade goods. Monthly First Friday Art Crawls at The ArtRoom Collective feature artist spotlights with demonstrations to teach and inspire.
