Over 45 regional artists will display their creations in the Art for the Endangered Landscape: Honoring Wolf Creek Art Show and Sale. This traveling exhibition will have a opening reception at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts, 2313 Eagle Drive, on Saturday, September 26 from 4 – 7 pm. The show and sale will be on display during the Center’s regular business hours until November 1.

The dozens of paintings, photographs, sculptures and jewelry were all inspired by the natural wonders found on Wolf Creek Pass along the Continental Divide in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado. The show is designed in part to promote regional artists as they serve witness to this alpine wild country threatened by massive resort development.

Proceeds from the show sales will go to show sponsors in efforts to counter a proposal that would place a small city at the 10,000 foot headwaters of the Rio Grande and San Juan Rivers. Sponsors of the show include Colorado Creative Industries, San Luis Valley Ecosystem Council (SLVEC), Rocky Mountain Wild, San Juan Citizens Alliance and Friends of Wolf Creek.
