The Spanish Peaks Arts Council (SPACe) is a non-profit community-based organization dedicated to the support and enrichment of the arts and art education in the Spanish Peaks region of southern Colorado. SPACe operates its art gallery, located in the La Veta Town Park, all year round with the help of paid staff, volunteers, memberships, donations, and grants. It is a small facility, so submitted pieces should be 30” wide or less, including the frame. Average sales of artwork ranges from less than $100 to about $400. Smaller works are encouraged. For more information about SPACe, visit the website: https://spanishpeaksarts.org/.

Unsold works will be shipped by Sept. 25. Unsold hand delivered works may be picked up Aug. 27.
