Ouray Art Walk – Summer Second Saturdays 5-8 p.m.
2012 – June 9 • July 14 • August 11 • September 8
Nestled in the breathtaking San Juan Mountains, the little city of Ouray celebrates the creative spirit with a monthly art walk, displaying its charming fine art galleries and bustling studios. It offers a wide variety of unique local and international arts and crafts. Out of the 700+ local year round residents, Ouray artists include several renowned artists producing a blend of art ranging from handmade jewelry, pastel and pencil drawings, watercolor, acrylic and oil paintings, photography, pottery, custom metal work, textile work, stained glass, multimedia, wood and metal sculpture, and glassworks. The eclectic Ouray art scene includes traditional, contemporary, abstract, surrealist, Naïve, African, South American, authentic Native American, Western, Cowboy and wildlife art. In addition to fresh galleries, Ouray is also home to a wonderful new sculpture garden.
The Ouray Art Walk offers summer patrons great venues with art, music, poetry readings, special demonstrations, guest speakers and ample refreshments (wine & hors d’oeuvres). Ouray Art Walk makes a special attempt to provide a creative platform for young upcoming musicians and poets from the local community to perform in these venues. The Art Walk also allows for the opening of studios to the public, revealing the inner workings and spaces where these artists create their works, the tools & equipment they use, while offering fascinating demonstrations from the silversmith, sculptor, glass blower, mask maker to painter.
