The first annual Art Show in the Village in June was a great success for the almost 20 artists who displayed their beautiful works of art, including sculptures, paintings, jewelry and photographs.  

The event kicked off on Friday evening with a food and wine event benefitting Firefly Autism.  Top caterers from the Denver area provided wonderful appetizers, and various wine merchants served paired wines.  Live music and beautiful weather completed the evening.  

Throughout Saturday and Sunday, many visitors came out to browse and shop for unique, one-of-a-kind works of art.  

“This was a great turn out for our first year,” remarked artist and event organizer Tim Zandee.  The organizers plan to continue to feature this event each summer in the Village.
