OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY, MAY 22, 3:30 TO 6:30 p.m.
Galleries around Telluride and Mountain Village
The official party gets underway with a round of receptions at different galleries and public spaces around Telluride and Mountain Village. The art is outstanding, and the drinks and hors d’oeuvres are free. If you get waylaid by old friends or captured by the art and can’t make the whole circuit on Friday, don’t despair — the exhibitions of paintings, drawings and photography remain up throughout the festival weekend.
The Gallery Walk is free and open to the public.
Artists will speak at their galleries at 5:15 p.m. during the Gallery Walk and again during the Ice Cream Social (2 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday). Galleries will be open throughout the festival weekend, and if you find no one at a gallery to help purchase a piece, please contact Drew Ludwig by email.
