Raku Fire Event
September 1. 2:00 – 5:00 pm.

The Gunnison Arts Center will be hosting their second fundraising Raku Fire Event on September 1st. Pick and purchase a piece of pre-made Raku pottery and paint away in the Clay Studio between 2-5 pm! These pieces will then be fired in a special Raku kiln that afternoon. Raku pottery is earth derived and the firing process is unique and daring. The entire vessel glows like red-hot coal, and the glaze melts into a sheet of liquid glass. Raku truly is quite the spectacle and we invite you to join us in this unique opportunity!





First Friday ArtWalk & Gallery Openings
September 1. 5:00 – 8:00 pm.

Join the community for this lovely First Friday of the month tradition! The Galleries of the Arts Center will feature Cheryl Pettigrew’s oil painting exhibit “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” in the Main Gallery and a Permanent Collection exhibit in the Upper Gallery showcasing Mother Earth and Colorful Colorado in all its seasons. Don’t miss the live music ArtWalk Fest starting at 7:45 pm right in front of the Arts Center!





ArtWalk Fest Ft. Zolopht
September 1. 7:45 – 9:45 pm.

Loosely described as psychedelic reggae rock, Zolopht has an entirely unique sound that is as catchy as it is progressive. If you saw them at Sundays at 6 this summer, you know you don’t want to miss the FREE show this September 1st. Join us in the middle of South Main Street following the ArtWalk for a Block Party presented by the Gunnison Arts Center. Complete with brews from High Alpine Brewing, food from local food trucks and dancing in the street!
