Moon Dance Show

The final art show for 2021 featured a special ‘Spotlight Gallery’ show on the 2nd floor of 3rd Street Gallery ‘Moon Dance’. The artwork had to have the moon or the image of the moon as it ‘dances’ across the sky or canvas, photo or 3D artwork, remembering, the moon is not just visible during the night. 2D or 3D artwork was accepted and artists encouraged to be creative, think outside the box! Twelve artists, locally and regionally, entered artwork for a truly unique show. Visitors chose the People’s Choice Awards during the December 4th Holiday Show reception.

The People’s Choice winners are:

  • 1st Place – ‘Gathering Under The Galaxy’ a Alcohol Ink on Wood by Deb Yarra.
  • 2nd Place – ‘Moon Rise’ an Oil by Lorie Merfeld-Batson.
  • Both artists are from Westcliffe, Colorado.

There is still plenty of time to view the ‘Moon Dance’ as well as the Holiday Show which features 24 local and regional artists and a variety of new small works of art, perfect for the holidays and gift giving. In addition, on the second floor, you can also view unique artwork by our Gallery Hosts, along with our bin art which features original artwork, photography and prints that also make great gifts.

The Moon Dance show runs concurrently with the Holiday Show on the main floor at the 3rd St. Gallery in Westcliffe, CO. The shows run Thursday-Monday, 11-4 until December 20th and is brought to you by the Sangres Art Guild, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit.
