HUGE THANKS to Open Studios artists who have donated work to help us raise money for families recovering from the fire. All proceeds go to the Boulder Community Foundation to be disbursed directly to those in need. The fundraiser did quite well in the Upstairs Gallery in the POP! at 1421 Pearl Street Mall. And now, we are reopening the event in an ONLINE MARSHALL FIRE FUNDRAISER here on the OS website. Please check it out and encourage your friends and families to support our efforts with a purchase of a beautiful piece of art. Items can also be seen and purchased at our Office Gallery - 1128 Pearl St - by appointment only. 303.444.1862.

I am putting a new shelf display into the POP today. It includes 3 shelves that are 40" long x 14" deep. It will be located in the front of the gallery and will be a good looking way to display a variety of small scale 3d work. Let me know asap if you are interested in displaying your work in the POP! Gallery this summer (month to month commitment). Open Studios retains a very small commission of 15% on sales so this is a great way to put your art into a retail gallery during tourist season. Email me soon if you are interested caren@openstudios.org. The shelf will be installed today, so you can see it if you come by during our Open House hours of 4 - 8.
