Colorado Group Realty does Art

Downtown office displays works by local artists

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO “We have been members of the First Friday Artwalk for a year now, and want to support the local art community” said Annamarie Shunny, member of the board of directors. “We have expanded our exhibit area to better showcase the wealth of talent in the Yampa Valley. Our new gallery hanging system gives our alternative exhibit venue a professional component that guest artists will find attractive.”

Colorado Group Realty has been a longtime advocate of the arts community. One of the seven areas supported by the Colorado Group Realty Charitable Foundation is in fact the arts. The Foundation was established in 2006, and since then has granted over $40,000 to local non-profit organizations.

This month on display is a vibrant show with pieces from Janice Lawrence and Susan Schiesser. The theme, Mud-Luscious, taken from a poem by e.e. Cummings, embraces spring with landscapes, vibrant floral and wild birds.

In addition, a permanent collection on loan from local artist Michelle Ideus is also on display.

“We are looking forward to working with the local art community to showcase our local talent” added Annamarie. Artists interested in applying for an exhibit should contact co-curator Laurie Peter at 870-8800 or Susan Schiesser at
