The Saguache Crescent of Saguache, Colorado

This year's Crestone Artists 4th Annual Studio Tour will feature 14 of our community's artists whose work and subject matter cover a diversity of visions, styles and materials. The tour takes place October 10 and 11 from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.

A perusal of other tours throughout the state suggests that while Crestone artists include a wide range of sensibilities and visions, not surprisingly, unique to our community is a strong sense of the spiritual, the contemplative, the celebratory and the visionary. Included in this year's tour are the otherworldly, totemic and dreamlike landscapes, resonant with deep space and time of artists Robin Ross, Jennifer Thomson, Mae Green, Beatris Burgoin and Barbara Dose; the exploration of the "innerscaps" of the human figure in the work of Jane Kwan and Brenda Sue; the more literal and classically beautiful celebrations of the natural world in pastel and watercolor by Emmy Savage and Joanne Riser; the luscious, playful and provocative celebrations of vision and materials by Verena Schwartz, Stephen(ish) Futral, Rose Burek and Kim Roberts; the sumptuous weavings of Moira Forsythe and the magnificent copper works of Shahna Lax that so effortlessly intergrate intellectual, mystical and aesthetic imperatives. This year's tour is dedicated with grateful appreciation for Robin Ross, founder, guiding force and energizing spirit of and for her generous and inspired artistic and organizational contributions to the Crestone community. Her death in February was a terrible loss to our community, but her generous spirit, her passion and gentle support continue to sustain all of us who are participating in this year's tour.
