Obermeyer offers good vitality
The Aspen Times Weekly cover story about Obermeyer Place (Aug. 16) prompts me to write. Is Obermeyer Place a success? To all of the businesses on my side of the building – across from the recycle center – we would like to say we are trying very hard to have our businesses all be successful.
I have an art studio and gallery that I am very happy to have. We have had many openings this first year and are happy to say that the people of Aspen are slowly discovering this small, almost unique to Aspen, business. It is the kind of locally owned and operated shop that Aspen used to have so many of. Friendly and down to earth, I am painting or throwing pots every day at Obermeyer Place. Prices are affordable. People come in and love to watch me throw and ask about the processes of all the different pottery or look at a new painting in progress. When you have mud or paint up to your elbows, it tends to get conversations going.
As time passes, we hope everyone in Aspen will come stroll down our little strip – get your bathroom remodeled with Tim over at Aspen Tile, get your dog washed with Laura at Barking Beauties, get some new cabinets built by Steve at Aspen Custom Woodworking, have Mark at Regan Construction remodel your house, get a new windshield at Aspen Glass with Jack, check out Meagon’s jewelry at DeNev Designs, or get a new home entertainment system at Paragon Technology Group. Believe me, everyone is welcome and we are all open and happy for anyone to stop by and see that Klaus Obermeyer has created a great place for our small businesses to prosper.
It is a unique area that is very successful in the fact that we are all here and have the chance to do what we are all doing. Hope you will all come by and see for yourselves.
Owner, Lane Fine Art at Obermeyer Place
