Mélange Telluride, a contemporary artist studio and gallery, run by working artists is hosting “HIGH POINT, the Art of Showing Horses” for the month of August.
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.
Drop in to see the show while enjoying fabulous jazz, breathtaking scenery, a summer of amazing wildflowers accessible on abundant hiking and mountain biking trails, haute cuisine, and that “je ne sais quois” atmosphere Telluride is known for.
RECEPTION AUGUST 7, 5PM-8PM during the Telluride First Thursdays Art Walk
