My name is Bric Autry Koehn. I grew up farming and ranching in southeast Colorado where my love of flora and fauna bloomed. Art has always been a big part of my life in smaller ways. I have always been an avid artist especially with drawing.
I had a brief run in Special Operations in the United States Navy that was unfortunately cut short due to medical reasons. After being released from the military, I came to Fort Collins to try my luck at Colorado State University where I majored in Natural Recourses Recreation and Tourism. I am also a very proud member of the NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) Alaska alumni.
I have a wild soul and my true passions equate with a well-traveled pair of shoes, a wide smile, and my camera in hand. What kind of adventurer would I be without my crazy Rhodesian Ridgeback, Fable, at my side. He is my best friend and my brother; and we have so many more adventures to romp. I have many goals in this life, but my most prized is the dream of someday becoming a photographer who changed someone for the better. I truly just want to be a beacon of light for someone who needs it. I’m a doer by nature and restless since birth, and I have never been more excited than I am now to be starting this new adventure with Alyson and John at Columbine Gallery home of the National Sculptors' Guild.
We're excited to introduce our Special Projects Coordinator, Bric Koehn. As 2019 has started off especially busy, we aren't wasting any time utilizing Bric's thoughtful perspective and unique skills on existing and upcoming art placements for private, corporate and public collections.

08/02/2018 UPDATE: We just learned that Juan de la Cruz passed away last night. We are turning our already planned feature exhibit of his artwork into a Tribute to Juan de la Cruz Machicado and his contributions as an artist. His gentle spirit will live on through his paintings. Any unsold paintings will be returned to Peru after the show at the family's request. We feel this may be the last chance to see his work exhibited in the US and hope you'll take advantage to view it here this August, and add a piece of this cherished artist to your collection. #CelebratingMachicado

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.
