It’s a busy week

If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.

Not that it’s ever slow in Durango, but spring fever seems to have hit. There’s a lot that went on last week and even more coming up in the next few days!

  • You can check out this week’s featured artist’s solo show at Studio &, until Saturday at 6pm. Tim Kapusta‘s Garage Sale is an artist, graphic designer, and founding member of Studio &. Check out more of his art at and his designs at

  • The Scrapbook Nook only has two more classes scheduled this month: Saturday at 10 they will be art journaling and Tuesday at 3 they will be making four different birthday cards. As a heads-up, they’ll be closed from the 23-27th so if you might be looking for any materials to carry you over, be sure and grab it before then!
  • Ever fret over knowing if a drawing is finished? Here is some advice to help you know when you’re done!
  • The Taste of Durango is coming up this Sunday, from 11am-4pm. You can pre-order your tickets and see who the vendors will be here.
  • In addition to delicious foods at Taste of Durango, there will also be audio delights at Buckley Park with the Stillwater Music Party in the Park from 12-6pm. Swing by to enjoy a variety of live music! This family-friendly event is free with lots of hands-on events for kids.
  • Patrice DeLorenzo’s workshop Creating Color with Simple Techniques, is coming up this Saturday, from 10-3 at Seed Studio. Find out more and register on her website.
  • If you’ve ever wondered why so many Egyptian art pieces have broken noses, you’ll enjoy this article.

  • Do you love art but don’t know if you want to make it a full-time career? Here are 185 other options to consider.
  • The new Art contest is live! Read more about All the Colors of the Rainbow here. We will be accepting submissions until June 21st.
  • We didn’t get to everything on the remodel list – but we made huge progress! There are new categories and items, with even more still on the way. That pile of boxes in last week’s email has been emptied out and put on the shelves. We’re all still catching our breath but love how the store looks and feels. Instead of a featured product this week we’re going to show off the store itself – hopefully you’ll come see it in person!

Whew! We’re still catching our breath from the remodel and certainly missed seeing you last week – but we’re open again. There are still pieces of the project to do – but that’s life, right? There’s always more to do. And that’s part of the enjoyment. We’re doing our best to make sure that we’re enjoying the journey – and hope that you’re doing the same!
