Our bar will be serving the traditional mulled wine of the Christmas markets in Europe and our black box theatre will be hosting an open rehearsal for the Whatchamawhozit’s children theatre class. The children in the theatre class have been working after school on Fridays since September, to write and rehearse an original piece that they will present to the public on December 9 at 2pm.

One of Pagosa’s newest art spaces features contemporary works made by local artists whose works are inspired by the beauty of Pagosa Springs and surrounding areas. This Studio/Gallery is owned by artist Susan Martin-Serra, assisted by Brianna Kramer and Kat Green. The gallery offers a range of works in multiple mediums priced from $15 to $2,000.

The current Featured Artist at Belvedere is Pagosa artist Shari Louise, showing Mixed Media Assemblage — a unique and colorful collection of three-dimensional sculptural works. This body of work includes creations specifically inspired by listening to music, as well as pieces created through visual observation.

Belvedere Arts hosts art classes and workshops for both adults and children in its well equipped studio space. Current classes include wheel-thrown pottery making, hand-building in clay and a bas relief tile-making class for children 8 years and older. Belvedere will soon be offering painting and drawing classes taught by local area artists.

<strong>Chad Haspels Sculpture Studio and Gallery</strong> is located at 52 Trinity Lane #1 and is highlighted by a gallery space of unique available Fine Art sculptures and a studio space where visitors have a rare opportunity to view multiple works in progress through various stages.

A nationally known artist, Chad works primarily in wood and occasionally in stone and bronze. His interest and fascination with the ecology of the Rocky Mountain and Colorado Plateau Regions is the driving factor in his use of wood as his primary sculptural medium. Because each wood specimen is thoughtfully hand-selected from local lands, Chad’s artworks naturally have a very intimate connection to nature.

<strong>Roberto’s Art,</strong> at 13 Trinity Lane, features the fine art and sculpture of Pagosa artist Roberto Garcia. This talented artist’s work is a large collection of traditional fine art in several different mediums and covering several different epochs spanning 50 years.

Roberto’s work is highly authentic and created entirely by his own hand. Expect to see bronze sculpture as well as many flat works which are exhibited in Roberto’s gallery space “Roberto’s Art.” Plans are in the works at this time for a class in bronze sculpture.
