This co-op gallery is run by members of Vail Valley Art Guild, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting visual arts in Eagle County. You'll find original paintings, photography and sculptures, all by local artists. Much of the work is focused on celebrating the landscapes of Colorado and the American West. They feature new exhibits every month, and if you happen to be in town on the first Friday of the month check out their First Friday reception, which is free and offers refreshments and a chance to meet the artists. The space itself is attractive; with exposed pipes and cedar room dividers, it's the epitome of urban-meets-mountain chic. Classes and open studio hours are offered weekly, and workshops are hosted throughout the year. The guild welcomes new members and offers monthly meetings for photography and artist member groups.
