Columbine Gallery was pleased to help this year's Colorado Governor's Art Show with a mini Art Tour so that Loveland's downtown eateries can promote the art community and the show's activities this May.
The Governor’s Art Show committee hosted downtown businesses and partners showing off some of the behind-the-scenes aspects of art-making so that together, we can showcase Loveland's thriving art community to residents and visitors..
Columbine Gallery's John Kinkade served breakfast and Bloody Mary's then gave tours of Art Castings of Colorado, and DeDecker Sculpture Studio, ending with lunch at Origins. Special thanks to Joe from City Limos for driving everyone. And thanks to our Downtown Loveland Partners for joining us. We had a great time with Mo'Betta Gumbo/TapHouse, Origins, Fresh Plates, Starlight Dessert Bar and Bakery, and Verboten Brewery
If you'd like a similar tour, please contact us, we love to share Loveland's art world.
Dan Ostermiller's #bronze #rabbit R.B. Monument has always gained a lot of attention at the entry of Columbine Gallery, however, this is a new one for us. We were unaware of the great work being done on behalf of cottontails in Colorado. We hope you'll learn more about Colorado House Rabbit Society, what they do, and give a donation to #bunnies in need.
pictured with the 5ft bronze is Heath -the 20 lb. bunny and Ms. Konnie Olson, one of the #BunnyBrigade leaders.

Introducing Colorado to its Artistic Talent" - April 24 - May 29, 2016 at the Loveland Museum/Gallery.
Opening Night Gala: April 23.
Over the past 6 months JK Designs' Principal, John Kinkade, has been pouring much of his knowledge, time and energy into the upcoming 25th Annual Governor's Art Show Happily we are seeing great acknowledgements as the events are beginning to unfold including the opening of Re-Fine-d Gallery this Friday. We believe the art community (artists and collectors alike) will love the show and all the extras that the Board Members have planned.... Beyond the Calendar of Events there will also be artists demonstrations at varied locations each weekend for the duration of the show. Columbine's Alyson Kinkade will be painting April 30th 2-4pm at Studio Vino, Carolyn Barlock at re-Fine-d Gallery May 7th 9-5 and Guest demonstrators Sabrina Stiles and Rodgers Naylor will be at Columbine Gallery May 14th 2-4pm.
“This event is not only an opportunity for Colorado artists to show their work,” says board member John Kinkade, “but also to introduce Coloradans to the amazing portfolios of many artistic talents we have in our state.” Indeed, this year’s show features works in a variety of media by 55 artists exploring myriad themes. More than 300 artists submitted work to the juried show, and while there are many returning and established exhibitors, nearly 25 percent of the participants are new to the event.
--- To mark the silver anniversary, the show includes an exhibit honoring its “legacy” artists. “This show has been instrumental in introducing new Colorado talent early in their careers,” Kinkade says. “We’re bringing these artists back to the show through the legacy program.” Works owned by the City of Loveland from each of this year’s legacy artists—Fritz White, Kim English, and Quang Ho—are on display in the museum’s Green Room. English and Ho also bring new works available for purchase.
---Proceeds from the show benefit a number of causes and groups supported by two local Rotary clubs. They also have helped to establish art scholarships for area students.

After the Weekend for Elephants Show in August we hung onto as much of the artwork by the Artist Ambassadors Against Poaching international artists as the gallery could handle - which meant cleaning out one of our smaller offices to capture as much wall space as possible.
Next month these paintings are heading to an exhibit at the Harim Blauvelt Museum, If you were wanting to add any of these to your collection, act now before we crate these gorgeous paintings up.... 25% is donated to the Ivory Orphan's Sancturary in Tanzania. Pictured here is art by Paul Dixon and Julie Askew.
