Telluride Arts supports local and regional artists by curating rotating exhibits in and around Telluride. Many of the exhibits are planned to open with artist receptions on the First Thursday Art Walks that happen throughout the on-seasons
Our current spaces include Gallery 81435, the Stronghouse Gallery, and the Wilkinson Public Library, with additional pop-up exhibits around town as space permits.
