June First Friday Artwalk proceeds as online, in-person hybrid

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — June’s virtual First Friday Artwalk features several new collaborations as well as a tentative step forward into hosting in-person art gatherings. 

A collaborative exhibit between local landscape painter Chula Beauregard and Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp will be featured at the Depot Art Center. In “Roots: A Year at Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp,” Beauregard displays paintings from her year of study of Perry-Mansfield’s 80-acre campus side by side with materials exploring Perry-Mansfield’s 107-year history. Five% of proceeds from Beauregard’s Roots pieces will be donated to Perry-Mansfield. 

The Depot will feature live music and welcome Artwalk participants in limited numbers to attend the show Friday. People may also purchase paintings online or schedule a personal, half-hour tour of the gallery from Tuesday to July 2. 

Also at The Depot is the exhibit, “Something in the Air,” a gallery by Riverwalk Collective. This exhibit features the following.
