History and myth are  staples of Telluride, the historic mining town in SW Colorado, nestled in the beautiful San Juan Mountains at an altitude of over 9,ooo feet. With abundant snowfall, Telluride boasts a world class ski area, as well as world renown festivals.  The gallery occupies the historic Telluride Bank, where Butch Cassidy blew into town on June 24, 1889 and robbed his first bank.  He fled with $21,000 to a remote area of Utah, known as Robbers Roost.


In August, the Vault Gallery showcases athletic horses displaying their beauty and artistry through the skills of their English riders in the disciplines of dressage,  show jumping, and eventing.  The Vault is an intimate, unique space to exhibit art.  Enjoy the installation of Cheri’s and Barb’s visions and expressions of the equestrian arts in watercolor and acrylics.

I have been a lifelong rider and horse lover. I got my first "horse" at a yard sale; it was a pony actually. It was sometime in the early 60's. I was in 3rd or 4th grade. The pony was perhaps $10. My sister, brother, and I pooled our money and led him home. At the time my parents were traveling, and my Uncle Bill promptly made us return it. (stay tuned...more to come...)
