For the love of art…

In addition to an exhibit featuring works by more than 35 artists, Redstone’s 26th annual Labor Day Art Show introduced a new plein air event that had painters, sketchers and doodlers scattered throughout the village with three hours to produce a piece to be auctioned off that same afternoon. Most pieces sold, with closing bids ranging from $18 to $675, and 30% of each sale (including from the big art show) benefitted the Redstone Art Foundation’s Jack Roberts Memorial Scholarship. This year, scholarship recipients are Taylor Joslin, a recent graduate of Glenwood Springs High School attending Savannah College of Art and Design, and Joy Bouchet, a Roaring Fork High School graduate studying art at Portland State University.
