Celebrate Summit Art Exhibit

Published September 3, 2019

Editor’s note: A fresh exhibit is on display at the Silverthorne Performing Arts Center for the months of August and September. The exhibit is part two of the Celebrate Summit show, which presents artwork from local artists who live among the brilliance of Summit County and have a knack for transferring that experience to their art. Stop by to see 17 new works including photography, painting, mixed media and fiber art, all celebrating Colorado’s magnificent colors. Read below for updated information about the Celebrate Summit Art Exhibit, which originally ran on the Silverthorne Pulse in June.

The talents of this community run deep. And, the Celebrate Summit Art Exhibit – a showcase of local Summit County artists – is one of the Town of Silverthorne Arts Board’s favorite and most rewarding displays of the year. 

In its second year, Celebrate Summit offers locals and guests the perfect opportunity to witness and honor the artistic talents of the community in a prime location. On display from June through September at the Silverthorne Performing Arts Center, selected works can be viewed in the education corridor, the hallway which leads from the lobby to the SPAC’s two classrooms. This year’s theme of “Colorado Colors” features selected artwork ranging from photography to mixed fiber and paintings. Given the theme, the works are vibrant and radiate the energy of our community and surroundings. 

The Town’s Art Selection Committee, a subset of the Arts Board, is a seven-member group that makes selections about public art displays throughout town. The Committee selected work from 11 artists for a display in June and July, and now 17 new works will be displayed in August and September. Each piece is available for purchase, with much of the art offered at an accessible price point. 

The Celebrate Summit Art Exhibit represents one of the greatest ways to view and experience local art in this community, as many of the featured artists do not have a studio or other public avenue for showcasing their work. All calls for art, whether for Celebrate Summit or other public art displays, are posted online at silverthorne.org. Anyone who is interested in having their artwork on display, or has other questions regarding public art in Silverthorne, should contact Joanne Cook at jcook@silverthorne.org.
