Rotating Artwork Program at the EVCC

The Estes Valley Community Center is a destination for local residents and visitors to our community. To provide yet another way for the community to be a part of the facility, we have established a  public gallery area on the lower-level lobby of the Estes Valley Community Center.

The gallery will contain a collection of 15 to 25 pieces of wall art that will rotate quarterly with the first show running from late February to the end of June 2018.

 

Current Show
The second show for the Estes Valley Community Center runs from July 2018 through September 30. This show features photographs of wildlife in Estes Valley and Rocky Mountain National Park by the members of the Front Range Wildlife Photographers.

Fall 2018 Show
Starting Monday, October 1, 2018, the new show will feature Portraits of Ability: Stories of Indpendence and Inspiration, a photojournalism exhibit presented by Via Mobility Services in partnership with VSA Colorado. The 25 photos, captured by New York-based photographer, Sophie Klafter, and Denver-based, Rachel Gomez, communicate the spirit and rich sense of who each person is — beyond their mobility challenges.

How to Enter Work for Consideration
To have your work considered for either a personal or group show, submit no more than three images to dawn@evrpd.com with the subject line: EVCC Art Show. Include in the email the name of the artist/group, image title(s), artist's/group's location and artist bio/statement.

Image files should be no larger than 10MB each and should include info about medium.

Selection Process
EVCC holds four shows a year (one per quarter) with future shows determined approximately six months prior to show opening. Artists will need to deliver their professional-quality prints to the Estes Valley Community Center (660 Community Drive) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on the Friday before the show opening. Final artwork can be in any medium and can be up to 16 by 20 inches but must include wire and D-rings for hanging. Artwork must remain on display for the entirety of the show. You may not remove pieces early for any reason.
