Palisade art gallery extends hours during ’08 Winefest
Finish off a day of wine sampling at Colorado Mountain Winefest with water, coffee and art receptions at The Blue Pig Gallery in Palisade.
The gallery is open special late night hours Friday and Saturday, Sept. 19–20, after Winefest activities.
Receptions, at 6 p.m., are a sneak peak at the gallery’s newest endeavor, “The Blue Pig Goes Green,” with 30 exhibiting artists displaying artwork of the natural world and pieces made from recycled materials.
There’s no cost to the public.
The exhibition includes paintings, photography, sculptures and collage in all media and styles.
“Artists were really some of the first environmentalists,” wrote Marla Wood, Blue Pig gallery director in a news release. “American artists, in particular, have been a driving force in efforts made to protect the natural world.”
“The Blue Pig Goes Green” will stay up at the gallery until Oct. 19. The official opening reception is from 1–5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21.
The Blue Pig is at 119 W. Third St. in Palisade. For more information, call 464-4819 or visit http://www.thebluepiggallery.com.
