The Vail Valley Art Guild has moved into the former Avon Police Station and will host its First Friday reception on Feb. 2 in the new space.

On Friday, Feb. 2, join the Vail Valley Art Guild as it cell-e-brates its move into the former Avon Police Station.

In late 2017, the Art Guild lost its lease and has been looking for a new venue to house its exhibits, meetings and workshops. Through the assistance of the town of Avon and Mayor Jennie Fancher, the Vail Valley Art Guild was able to acquire space vacated by the Avon Police Department.

First Show

This First Friday reception titled Best Work will include pieces by painters, photographers and ceramic artists deemed to be their most proficient artistic achievement. The photographers will include a Best Shot of the Month exhibit.

To celebrate the first show in the new space, the gallery will also host a small Treasure Chest room including original artworks donated by the artists, priced at or below $100.

The Art Guild thanks all of the volunteers who helped during the move as well as the folks at the Avon Home Depot who generously donated the much-needed paint.
