The Saguache Arts Walk will be held Saturday, June 22 in Downtown Saguache.

Have you heard the word? Did you take note of the posts?

Well, if not, Saguache Today has got you covered with all the news regarding what is likely to be one of the busiest weekends in this small valley town. So make your plans or change your plans and get good old 81149 dialed into your GPS for this weekend June 21-23.

First up it’s news regarding the art show, this year celebrating 10 years! While the annual event is usually held in August, organizers switched things up this year in order to coincide with another arts milestone – the Grand Re-opening of the historic Ute Theater (more on that in a minute)

Here are the details for the 10th Annual Saguache Arts Walk

On Saturday, June 22 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. the 10th annual Saguache Arts Walk will take place on and around 4th Street in downtown Saguache. Artists of all types from around the county will be attending to demonstrate, display and sell their work.  

This is the perfect opportunity to get downtown and see what unexpected and secret talents your friends and neighbors may possess. Painting, sculpture, jewelry, fiber arts, crafts, pottery, and much, much more will be represented this weekend. During the day there will be live music outside.

Come and join us in downtown Saguache for the day! We have some fantastic restaurants, a lovely coffee shop, and even a bar! Spend the day immersing yourself in the arts and support our local artists.

In addition, the Sagebrush Quilters will be holding their annual quilt show at the Road and Bridge Building on 3rd Street. Saguache Works will be celebrating National Dairy month during the Arts Walk with some very artistic homemade ice cream that will be available for tasting. There will be lots of art to be viewed by all!

If you are an artist who would like to participate there is no fee to join in, just call or email Stacey at (719)-849-0957 or staceyamosart@aol.com. They have indoor and outdoor space available.

The Magpie features Judith Page’s mixed media artwork and artifacts from Africa and the Middle East. The Range will exhibit painting by Gaby Wolodarski, an artist from Montevallo, Alabama.

The 9th Annual Saguache Arts Festival is sponsored by the Saguache Chamber of Commerce.

In case you missed it, here is the video from the special commemoration of Saguache artist Byron Williams at last month’s Hollyhock Festival by the chamber. Williams was also a supporter of the annual art festival. Art patrons will miss stopping into his Smith Market Gallery which he operated for many years as his gallery and studio. Good luck on the next chapter, Byron!

Visit Hauck/Pedersen, in business in Saguache for over two decades, showcasing figurative expressionist art. Kelsey Hauck displays paintings, collage, sculpture, 100’s of works on paper, and antiquities throughout her 1886 storefront building.  Hauck has lived throughout the Southwest and has traveled widely in Europe. She came to Saguache in 1993 with her late husband Doug Pedersen.

Pedersen and Hauck met in 1966 in New York City when he hired her at the Whitney Museum of American Art’s first Education Department. Both artists have a strong interest in philosophy, classical music, education, and organic food. Their artwork deals with the human condition.

A world-renowned artist, Hauck has made Saguache her home for more than two decades. Today, she continues to create works of collage magic, and is happy to have visitors to her studio, The Hauck/Pedersen Fine Art Gallery located at 313 – 315 4th Street in downtown Saguache. www.hauckpedersen.com

For the serious art collector the journey to this 100 year-old mercantile building provides a face to face interaction with the art and the unique environment in which it was created. So next time you’re downtown, be sure to stop in and see what people have been talking about for years!
