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.

We've had a fantastic experience with Advantage Bank, if you're seeking a supportive community bank in the area... we highly recommend them.
Columbine Gallery and the National Sculptors' Guild are so excited to be celebrating this moment in Loveland, Colorado where we've been headquartered since 1992 that we've donated our portion of the project plus design work back to the placement to give back to the community that has supported us through the years.

We have a dozen paintings by the late Lu Haskew never before shown at Columbine Gallery on display, this week only. We hope you'll come by Saturday for our annual Legacy For Lu event 11-4.
Purchasing artwork this week gives back to the community with proceeds going to the Thompson Education Foundation's Lu Haskew Endowment for the Arts Fund, infusing art classrooms with additional resources.
Can't make it? You can donate to the endowment online... click here

Because we apparently can’t go a few weeks without a major project we bring you the latest! The atrium window fix. It's pretty strange to see the once indoor fountain outside.
Jeff Allen-Young got us all boarded up and thanks to Moffat Paint & Glass we have safely removed the giant glass panels that were slipping. Next we have some new metal (wood was used before #ThanksSeventies) reinforcement coming in and replacement of the glass.
Follow this post for updates on the project... we'll be in good shape soon.

It's official, we have upstairs neighbors, we've cleared out the top floor (except for a few large paintings). The gallery is now just the first floor.
Please welcome Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices to the building. We’re excited to have this energetic bunch of real estate agents reinvigorate the upstairs.
Not to worry, we still have all our 45 artist’s artwork on display, and we think the gallery and NSG sculpture garden look better than ever.
Stop by and see all the changes we’ve made, or shop online.

We’ve created a sliding door to close off the main gallery when our new neighbors are open while we are away.
Berkshire Hathaway moves in upstairs this week! The upstairs gallery is now officially closed. We welcome them to the space and look forward to this new phase.
Not to worry, we still have all our 45 artist’s artwork on display, and we think the gallery and garden look better than ever.
The middle portion of this door is by Tal Walton and his father and is available as a functioning door, just have to add the barn door track.... let us know if you’d like it.
Shop online, or stop by and see all the changes we’ve made.
