Robinson Payne, ex-professional football coach, and Prolific artist, has taken up residence and created a new studio space on Main Street in sleepy and historic Walsenburg, Colorado.
Walsenburg is the Huerfano County Seat which proudly includes the Spanish Peaks, Cuchara, La Vet, and the beautiful Lathrop State Park. The gateway to South Western Colorado!
If you are driving through town on Main Street or traveling west on Hwy 160 to the Dunes, Durango or Taos, stop and take a stroll around Walsenburg. You will find some great antique stores and the historic Fox Theatre. Grab a beer at Sarti’s Bar and walk down the street to visit one of the more eclectic abstract art and photography studio’s in Southern Colorado.
Open by appointment and spontaneously on weekends.
This place has super cute items, special souvenirs, fun gifts plus beautiful jewelry–all reasonably priced! They also host a variety of concerts where you can buy beer, wine, or other refreshments.
Local Artist Kathy Hill’s work reflects the scenery and wildlife in the Cucharas Valley in Spanish Peaks Country. You will find works in watercolor, oil, and acrylic. Prints and reproductions are also available. Hill also paints commissions and offers classes.
Please call ahead before visiting
Kathy Hill says –
“Color and light are always significant in my paintings. I am fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful, best-kept secrets in Colorado. No matter whether my painting is of the magnificent Spanish Peaks, or of a lowly rock in the snow, my hope is to connect with others who share my love of the natural world.
As we experience the world around us, we often hold onto fleeting moments we remember more as feelings than how things really looked. In my work, I strive to capture these moments, enhancing the feelings with expressive colors, yet retaining the reality of the scene.”
The Timbers Restaurant and Tavern in the Village of Cuchara is not only a place where you can relax with friends, and enjoy a drink or a fine wine in the tavern before experiencing fine dining with an incredible selection of steaks, seafood, and other taste-tempting entrees … but it is also home to the Gallery at The Timbers.
The Timbers says …
“The Cuchara Valley is home to some amazing artists, and we are happy to feature their work in our gallery.
Please take a tour throughout our tavern, dining room and up in our loft to see works currently on display including paintings, sculpture, and multi-media works. Colorado and the southwest United States offer fantastic inspiration to these artists and we are proud to exhibit their pieces.
Artists include: Shawn Bridges, Diane Broce, Scot Mangold, Marnee Camp, Bradley Lemons, Frances Staniforth, Tim Deibler, Marcia Barclay and Wayne Stewart. Please take time to enjoy the offerings. Each piece is clearly marked with a price. We encourage you to take home a piece of artwork from one of our artists and add it to your collection.”
Nestled in a scenic valley at the base of the captivating Spanish Peaks in Southern Colorado lies the quaint little town of La Veta. In this secluded piece of paradise, life slows down, creativity abounds, and artistic expression flourishes. Here you will find the unique and imaginative La Veta Gallery on Main.
The gallery is known for its extensive offering of ceramic works, and also represents many local and regional artists working in paint, jewelry, fiber, photography, scratchboard, wood, and paper.
We invite you to come see all the unique and diverse works on display!
