Blue River Artists show at Zoe's

Zoe's Hair Design in Breckenridge is known locally as a place that displays great art as well as a great place for cuts and color. For years, the owner, Donna Miller, has held art shows in her little salon. She moves all the furniture out, hangs the art on the walls, serves wonderful food and wine and gets a huge turnout at the reception! Not only does she bring in a good crowd, she even sells a lot of the artwork.
Thursday, March 25th, some friends and I will have a reception for our Second Annual show. We call ourselves the Blue River Artists. We paint together weekly in Breckenridge, and Donna is one of our members. Several of us also take classes together at both Colorado Mountain College and The Art Student's League in Denver. Our group is informal, but is a great help when we are stuck, or need a little critique to feel like the painting is finished.
The painting above, titled "Meadow's Edge" was painted in our group on a Sunday night. It is 9x12 and will be one of several at Zoe's.

Our reception is from 5pm to 7pm on Thursday. Hope to see you there!
