Opening April 29, the 26th annual Governor’s Art Show and Sale - the largest juried art show to exclusively feature Colorado artists - will bring together 56 of the state’s most-talented artists, two Legacy Artists, George Lundeen and Mark Lundeen, and thousands of visitors for a month long-exhibit at the Loveland Museum/Gallery. The art show has established itself as one of the top two art shows in the state, and among the many reasons Loveland is at the heart of the arts in Colorado.
The show will include:
• A preview gala for previous patrons and sponsors on April 28 featuring live performances and music (tickets are $75)
• Work by award-winning artists, including award-winning Denver artist Kit Kevron Mahoney and sculptor Jane DeDecker
• The Plein Air Festival and Auction held at three locations across Loveland where visitors can view the artists in process, followed by an auction at The Rialto Theater
The Governor’s Art Show is presented by Loveland and Thompson Valley Rotary Clubs, directed by Pam Osborn and endorsed by the Governor of Colorado. All proceeds will benefit Rotary-sponsored charitable projects and causes, including scholarships for local art students.
Exhibit admission is $5, and free for museum members. There will be free admission during Night on the Town, Friday May 13, 6-9 p.m. and the last Saturday of the show, May 27, which will coincide with Memorial Day. Learn more at governorsartshow.org. [Organizer's description]
