Whirlwind Trip to Denver

Joe and I left Billings early Friday morning and arrived in Denver by late afternoon. We had time to check into our bed and breakfast, grab a quick bite to eat, and made our way down to Santa Fe Drive. It was the art walk, and a lot of other galleries besides Translations
were open. It was so refreshing to see REAL ART! If you ever find yourself in Denver with a few hours to spare, try walking down Santa Fe Drive - the Denver arts district. It is wonderful!

The SAQA Regional Show - FLOW was wonderful. Since we arrived late, I wasn't able to figure out who the SAQA members or artists were from those in the gallery. I did introduce myself to Judith Trager, the gallery owner. She was easy to pick out because she was wearing a name tag.

Out of respect to the gallery owner and the exhibiting artists, I did not take pictures inside the gallery. There was a large exhibit of work by Maximo Laura, a Peruvian weaver. We loved his work! You can see examples of his work here.
Here is a picture of the bed and breakfast where we spent Friday night. Our room was the Tower Room - hidden behind all that ivy!
Tomorrow I will post pictures from our trip through Rocky Mountain National Park.
