Anticipation and curiosity about the Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center is about to end! Join us to celebrate our Grand Opening, "Art on the Edge," beginning Friday, June 15, at 5:15 p.m. The public is cordially invited to attend our ribbon cutting at 5:15 p.m., followed by an open house and reception. The center is located at 195 N. Main Street in Cedaredge. You will be able to explore the newly remodeled art center and hear about our programming, education and community outreach plans. In celebration, we will be presenting more than 60 original 5x7 canvas pieces created by community artists, including art by local students, each of which will go home with the highest bidder.
Festivities continue on Saturday, June 16, with activities for children, a featured artist reception in the gallery and David Starr's CD release party. The concert is sold out but an encore concert is being planned for Sunday. Watch our Facebook page and website for further details, at www.grandmesaartscenter.com.
"The Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center is a dream come true for our valley and has been made possible through the generosity and dedication of this community," noted Deborah Shaffer, executive director. "We want to share and celebrate this accomplishment with everyone."
