Featured Artists


Peggy Stenmark
Using strong design and rich color in watercolors and acrylics, Peggy paints the scenes of Crested Butte often overlooked by others, finding beauty in unusual places, inspiring people to take a closer peek into their surroundings.

Laura Elm
Laura spontaneously integrates words and creatures onto finely crafted studio ceramics, drawings and paintings. Strikingly original images with lush, verdant pattern and repetition allow the meditative qualities of color and form to evolve with each piece. 

Suzanne Pierson
Suzanne makes unique and treasured watercolors of memorable adventures in the mountain paradise of Crested Butte – brilliant with wildflowers and forests printed on easy to pack, ready to hang metal prints. 

Mary Tuck
“Eclectic creativity is the breath of life!” exclaims Mary. Mary works in all mediums – acrylics, watercolor and Precious Metal Clay being some of her favorites. Here she shows handmade jewelry, small acrylic paintings and silk scarves.   


Christina Stillwagon  
Formally trained, Christina Stillwaggon focused on glass flameworking in her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Alfred University. Here she shows an assortment of finely crafted stained-glass hangings.
