The Trinidaddio will soon be singing its annual blues down in Central Park. It’s a vastly popular and well-attended event slated for later this month on August 23-24.
At the same time, up on Main Street across from the Mitchell Museum, the Corazon Art League Gallery will also be all about the blues, but these will be blues you can see instead of blues you can hear.
Having previously presented a Red Show and a Green Show, the third of their color themed art shows, open to all local artists, will be a symphony in blue.
The Exhibition will open with a public reception at the Gallery at 149 East Main Street on Friday, August 9 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Everyone is invited to come to this reception and enjoy wine, cheese and finger foods while meeting with many of the artists and enjoying a first look at the fresh new work they have brought to show and sell.
The Blue Show will continue to be open during Gallery hours through ArtoCade weekend, closing on September 22. Because of these two wonderful events, the artists can be assured that there will be many visitors to Trinidad, translating into greater than usual exposure of their artwork to prospective collectors and appreciators.
As part of its mission to provide a venue for local artists to exhibit their artwork to the public, the Corazon maintains a number of “open” shows during each year. Next up will be a “Critter” show in October and another show of smaller, affordable handmade items suitable for Holiday gifts in November.
These exhibitions are wonderful opportunities to acquire original art for gifts or to adorn the walls and spaces in your own homes and offices.
The shows are always judged, and cash prizes awarded to the winners—an additional incentive for artists to bring their finest work. Everything in the show will be for sale, and everything is original, handmade art. Buyers will be pleasantly surprised at the reasonable prices in our little town, which are far lower than in larger cities.
Come see the show and enjoy with our local artists the skills, friendships and Victorian ambiance that identify Trinidad as the premier arts and cultural center of the Santa Fe Trail.
