The Art Base in Basalt has teamed up with Aspen Sister Cities to launch the new Roaring Fork Valley Art Exchange program.

 

Welcome to the beginning of another colorful fall week in the Roaring Fork Valley!

 

Tuesday through Friday, The Wheeler Opera House will be hosting a series of events in commemoration of John Denver. For a complete events schedule, visit wheeleroperahouse.com.

 

Local printmaker Curt Carpenter’s exhibition “Woodcuts of the Roaring Fork River” went up Friday night at The Art Base in Basalt. This exhibition is a scavenger hunt of sorts.

Latest Art Base exhibition explores outer space

Feb 9, 2017

Three artists, all with connections to the Roaring Fork Valley, will launch Basalt’s Art Base into space with a unique group exhibit.

This week on Cross Currents, the Art Base has an opening Friday evening featuring Isa Catto's latest work.

Drawing isn’t necessarily the flashiest of the visual arts, but a new show at The Art Base in Basalt is looking to change the opinions of people who see it.

Richard Carter, James Surls, Chris Hassig and Jody Guralnick are part of the show simply  called, Drawings.

It’s a show that takes the four artists out of their regular media. None of them are drawers by trade.

  Three teams completed snow sculptures on Sunday as part of Aspen Winterskol festivities, and only one came away a winner. As time began to run out, contestants made final touches to their pieces.

The Wyly Community Art Center is going through some big changes.

Genna Moe is the Executive Director of the Wyly and just a few months into the job, she's excited to announce new programs, projects, and goals for the Basalt-based art center, including a name change.

With the support of the Wyly family, the Wyly Community Art Center will re-brand as The Art Base - alluding to its role as a base of operations for emerging artists in the Roaring Fork Valley. And, the main exhibitions space will be named the Charles J. Wyly Gallery at the Art Base.
