Celebrate Student Art at The Range
Tomorrow, Thursday May 11 the students from Mountain Valley Schools will present their Spring Concert and Art Show. This is your chance to see all of the great, creative projects students have been working on this year.
The arts are alive at Mountain Valley Schools in Saguache. Pictured here are students who participated earlier this year in the sculpture project for the Telluride Fire Festival.
The community is welcome and encouraged to attend. The program will begin at 6 p.m. at The Range, Saguache’s Art Gallery located downtown at 307 4th Street.
The evening will begin with some wonderful music played by the pre K – 5th grade students. Then attendees are encouraged to tour the K – 12th grade art show which will be on display at The Range. Refreshments will be provided, so come and join the celebration of the arts in the Saguache schools!
In January, the 3rd Annual Telluride Fire Festival premiered the fire-spewing, three-headed Youth Pyros sculpture created with the help of several Saguache students. You can READ FULL STORY and see the final fire-breathing sculpture HERE. This sculpture was created in November by regional youth in a special workshop produced by Coldharbour Institute and Telluride Fire Festival through grants from Coldharbour Institute, Saguache County and scholarships from Telluride Fire Festival.

Goldberg’s Photography Draws Crowd to Saguache
New York based artist and writer Ariel Goldberg made a big splash on 4th Street last Saturday, May 21 at her “Straight Photography” show at The Range in downtown Saguache. The photography exhibit grew a hearty crowd of artists and art-lovers, officially kicking off the Summer Art Show Season!

Goldberg spoke about her process of taking pictures and read essays about the various situations that created the more than 40 photographs that surrounded the exhibition attendees. From the Daliesque “Ladders” photo to the reflective “Newslip,” Goldberg’s collection represents urban living in all its glory, and obstacles. No doubt after years of experience, her professional eye is drawn to the unusual, just sitting there waiting to be captured, and then shared with people in places far from New York, like Saguache, Colo!

This was Goldberg’s first visit to Saguache and she was looking forward to exploring the beauty of the San Luis Valley with her girlfriend during her trip to Colorado. All of her work on display at last Saturday’s exhibit is available for purchase; she may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
