STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Steamboat Whiskey Co. transforms itself into an art gallery from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, when it hosts an opening event for its first art show, “Art Pop-Up.”

The local distillery will showcase 20 pieces of work from the upcoming exhibit “Redefining Contemporary Art: Selected Works from the NIAD Art Center,” organized by Courtney Eldridge in association with Steamboat Creates and the Northwest Colorado Center for Independence.

The show will run Jan. 26 to Feb. 17.

If you go

What: “Art Pop-Up”.

When: 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26

Where: Steamboat Whiskey Co., 55 11th St.

“We’re excited to have our first art show,” said Jess Newhall, who owns Steamboat Whiskey Co. with her husband, Nathan Newhall. “Nothing makes for the perfect winter cocktail like contemporary art and handcrafted spirits.”

The work in the show comes from a variety of artists involved with Nurturing Independence through Artistic Development, an organization based out of Richmond, California, that gives people with disabilities the skills and experience to express themselves.

“Each piece of NIAD art is an original work of contemporary art that tells an individual story from the perspective of an artist with disabilities,” Newhall said.

Artists earn a commission from the sale of their works, and each artist has sold at least one piece of art per year by participating in the studio program.

“We are hoping that this will be the beginning of many art pop-ups to come,” Newhall said.
