ART AUCTION ALERT!

Melissa Plantz

We can’t wait for the Ah Haa School for the Arts’ summer fundraiser, its iconic art auction. Virtual again this year, viewers and bidders can check out what’s on offer via Ah Haa’s website (ahhaa.org) from July 16 until Aug. 5 — an end date that coincides very nicely with the August Art Walk. The artwork will also be exhibited in the SilverJack building, located at Pacific Avenue and Fir Street, for the duration of the event. Supporters of Telluride’s local arts education hub will know that Ah Haa is putting the finishing touches on its new home at the SilverJack, one of many exciting developments that include the arrival of new Executive Director Marty Wollesen and a diverse and compelling summertime program of classes.

TELLURIDE ROCKS Take a closer look around town and you might notice colorful painted rocks in random places. The brainchild of longtime local Luci Reeve, Telluride Rocks encourages anyone who is feeling a little creative to paint a rock and leave it in a place where it might catch a child’s eye, bring cheer to someone having a bad day, or figure in a photo perfect for Telluride Rocks’ Facebook page.
