Good News Friday!

This weekend's Handmade in Colorado Expo will not only feature original artwork by Imagine! artists, some of the proceeds from the event will benefit Imagine!.

Handmade in Colorado Expo is a juried event showcasing some of Colorado's best fine art and contemporary craft. The event features a vast array of independent designers producing original handcrafted goods from a wide array of media including metals, paper, glass, fibers, food, fabricated objects, clay, paint, wax, gems, and more. All work sold is created by both emerging and experienced artisans from Colorado. This event is designed for "Locavores" as customers will only find Colorado made items sold by exhibitors, who will interact directly with their customers. This event has free admission and includes some great local live music.

This year, as he did last year, Handmade in Colorado Expo organizer Steve Wallis will be donating 10% of exhibitor fees to Imagine!. In addition, he has provided a booth free of charge during this weekend's Boulder Expo to artists in Imagine!’s CORE/Labor Source program, so they may sell their artwork.

I encourage you to head over to the Pearl Street Mall this weekend (11:00AM - 6:00PM Saturday and Sunday) to support Imagine! and our talented artists. And if you happen to see Steve, be sure to tell him "thanks!"
