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.
As we enter the New Year, we have great anticipation of fun, artful moments as we Celebrate our 25th Anniversary of dedication to the Arts, Artists and our Patrons.
Columbine Gallery and the NSG sculpture Garden are full of great paintings and sculptures ready for your collection by our 50 represented artists. In honor of our 25th, we've traced back information on the building that houses all this beautiful artwork by getting in touch with the architect. See what we discovered. We also have our annual shows to look forward to this Spring, Summer and Fall. We hope to see you at any and all, plus a few times in between.
JK Designs and the National Sculptors' Guild have a number of large-scale projects already in the works this year. We look forward to sharing these exciting art statements with you as we complete and install them. We are finalists in other placements, and designing other concepts that we hope to also see actualized this year.
We wish you a wonderful 2017 & look forward to continuing to assist you in the practice of Living with Art.
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.
