Kudos Annie Dawid!

Our own visual artist and author Annie Dawid won the Northern Colorado Writers Contest with a short essay she wrote.  Also, Annie’s 10-minute play, “GUNPLAY,” will be produced Sept 6-7, here at the Jones Theater in Westcliffe.  Congrats, Annie!

Congratulations to Summer Show Winners

Please join me in congratulating the winners of the SAG 2013 Summer Show. Unfortunately, we did not have enough entries to give prize money in the 3D category, but the juror did award honorable mentions.

Artists’ Charitable Fund

Consider donating artwork to the annual Aritsts’ Charitable Fund fundraiser art auction.  This is a Colorado based organization that assists American artists living anywhere in the United States by paying a portion of their medical/dental/eye-care bills. All of us may have unexpected medical bills some day and may need such assistance. In a way, we’re giving to ourselves. 

For further information, see: Contact the fund coordinator Judy Archibald at: to learn how to donate.
