OPEN STUDIOS RETAIL GALLERIES, East Pearl Gallery and R Gallery in downtown Boulder, are a social enterprise program providing local artists the opportunity to show and sell their work. We began building temporary pop-up galleries in vacant retail buildings in 2018. Now we’re pleased to operate two permanent galleries in Boulder.

R Gallery, 2027 Broadway, Boulder

An eclectic gallery in downtown Boulder, ó block north of the Pearl Street Mall (between Pearl and Spruce Streets). The gallery features a broad selection of works by Colorado Artists, many of whom are Open Studios juried artists. The gallery also features a section devoted to artwork by Boulder Art Association member artists, now celebrating their organization’s 100th anniversary.

About Bill Snider: “Discovering an artist with an established career who is perpetually searching, experimenting and stretching his creative voice is a joy for a collector. Bill Snider has that voice; a voice which is energetic with imagination, a voice that is invigorating and always compelling.”  


About Steven Hook: "Emotional….often times too near the edge.” describes both the artist and the art of Steven Hook.

After attending the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1970-1974), Steven lived and painted in Los Angeles and San Francisco before settling in the Boulder area. His work is shown throughout the United States and in several European countries. He has been and is presently involved in numerous solo and group exhibitions, and is in both public and private collections.

Using temporary spaces during the winter holidays and when opportunities arise, POP Gallery pop-ups give Open Studios Member Artists an opportunity to advance their careers and an additional chance for the public to support Boulder County artists. Artists share the cost of gallery operations at minimal commission rates. All artists who live and/or make their art in Boulder County are eligible to apply for Open Studios Membership. The POP! Gallery program is a benefit of Membership. The art for each POP Gallery is carefully curated to provide an excellent and varied selection of work.
