UPDATE at 9:34 a.m.: The Guild has decided to postpone the reception due to the massive snow dump predicted for Friday, Feb. 7. The new reception date is Friday, March 6.

The Vail Valley Art Guild is showcasing a new poster today, “Minturn’s Historic Building Core,” by local architect Beth Levine. The poster depicts sketches of familiar storefronts around Minturn and will be on sale for $35.

The Minturn Community Fund requested that the guild present an exhibition on Levine’s poster, which debuted last month at the guild’s monthly First Friday reception in Minturn.

Levine is a licensed local architect who has been in the Vail Valley for more than 30 years and will be available to sign posters during the reception. She holds degrees in architecture, environmental design and mechanical engineering.

Photographers Brett Forlano, Scott Pope, Raymond Bleesz, Ellen Stone and Michelle Cawood also will display photos of local and exotic locations. Artists Missy Octave, Barbara Holden and Soodi Kick are showing works that depict local scenes in pastel, acrylics and watercolor mediums. Abstract artist Tara Novak is also exhibiting a series of paintings overlaid with an epoxy-glass mixture.
