On Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8, Weekend in the West will take place at the Lucky Penny Ranch in Evergreen. The title sponsor for the art show and auction is The McWilliams Group at RE/MAX Alliance. The Gold sponsor is Evergreen Fine Art, Barb Hadley and Phil Shanley. Silver Sponsors are Adobe Creek Framing, Colorado Serenity and Trove. Proceeds from the event will benefit Bootstraps Scholarships and Loans. “Weekend in the West is a premier art event that raised over $8,300 last year to assist Evergreen and Conifer families in alleviating some of the financial burden of continuing education for their children,” explains Colleen Skates, Executive Director of Bootstraps Scholarships and Loans.
The event will showcase paintings, sculptures and more from over 27 top Western artists. The artist lineup includes: Edward Aldrich, Nicolo Balkanski, Sophy Brown, Renee Buller, Cheri Lynn Capello, Jimmy Devine, Pem Dunn, Maeve Eichelberger, Kelli Folsom, Terry Gardner, Stephanie Hartshorn, Carol Jenkins, Karryl, Gary Kim, Stephen LeBlanc, Terri Lombardi, Leon Loughridge, Rodgers Naylor, Dan Oakleaf, Karen Roehl, Dave Santillanes, Jill Soukup, Pati Stajcar, Janice Sugg, Susiehyer, Michael Untiedt, Jie Wei Zhou.
Friday evening’s event will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and will include hors d’oeuvres from Fresh Tracks Catering and drinks.
Saturday’s event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include brunch catered by The Basted Egg along with mimosas to quench your thirst. Artists will set up their easels and materials to create paintings and sculptures during a 90-minute “quick draw.” Collectors will have the opportunity to interact with artists as they create their “quick draw” art, then the bidding will begin!
“It’s a fun day of mingling with the artists and hearing their stories, while giving them exposure and raising money for a cause that can forever change someone’s life,” explains June McKenzie, realtor. “We also encourage people to stop by our office before the event and pick up a copy of the Explore Evergreen guide or map. It offers a list of year-long events, things to see and do, and information on local shops and venues. It’s a great way to explore Evergreen even more after the event or when returning for another must see visit.”
