10th Anniversary Celebration
Join us for our 10th Anniversary Celebration in Pueblo—and, yes, there will be cake. We will celebrate First Friday, July 7, at 5 p.m. But, you can stop by anytime during the day, or week, as we are open seven days a week.
A little history: 10 years ago some wonderful artists were interested in putting together an art gallery. Together, they formed a vision and started looking for space. They put a call to artists ad in the local paper, met, and started a family of artists, and the first show. Ten years later, we have grown to more than 40 artists in a co-op environment that offers a diverse array of art—whether you are looking for metal yard art, an oil painting for your family room, or a wooden bowl for your kitchen (or as a gift for friends), or, really, anything–we have it. And, why drive to Santa Fe, when you can get great art here, and buy local.
Back to the history: since forming as Steel City Art Works Gallery, we have also started a 501(c)3, the Steel City Society For The Arts, with new goals of buying our own building, promoting art in Southern Colorado, and expanding into a learning center.
Pueblo Chile & Frijoles Festival
In September, we celebrate right here along Union Avenue, the annual Chile & Frijoles Festival –a celebration of Pueblo’s harvest. While many come to enjoy Pueblo’s green chilies‚ particularly Pueblo chile‚ and frijoles or pinto beans, we will host artists George Ivins, Chris Bryant, John Box and Frank Fry, who will commemorate this event in their art, whether photography, paintings or sculptures. In fact, all of our more than 40 artists will be celebrating with us with their unique art. This annual festival includes music‚ arts and crafts‚ cooking competitions, and much more. So, stop by and see us for our interpretation—in artistic fashion–of the Pueblo chile.
