Roaring Fork Studio Tour a success

Dear Editor:On behalf of the Carbondale Community School, we would like to say “thank you” to our community, artists and sponsors for their strong support of the ninth annual Roaring Fork Studio Tour. With artist studios from Aspen to Glenwood, this year’s tour was an exciting mix of art forms and creative spaces. The Studio Tour funds all of the arts programming at the Carbondale Community School. Also, because we are committed to arts education for all children, a portion of proceeds is donated to scholarships for the Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities’ after-school arts classes.The Roaring Fork Studio Tour would not be possible without the commitment of our sponsors. Our Gold Level sponsors have shown that they value creativity in our community and arts education for our school by giving generously. We would like to extend special thanks to these major sponsors: Ravenheart Gallery in Carbondale, Alpine Bank, the Gay and Lesbian Fund of Colorado and Noelhouse Creative. We also would like to thank our silver-level sponsors – CommunityFootsteps.com, the Child’s Eye and Ace Roofing – and our bronze-level sponsors – Personal Rehabilitation Center, Mitchell & Co. and Sopris Engineering LLC.The Studio Tour would be nothing without the participation of our valley’s artists. We are blessed to live in a community with so much talent and artistic vitality. Thank you to all the Studio Tour artists!We also appreciate our restaurant sponsor, Tempranillo, as well as the many food and beverage donors that made our opening-night gala delicious: Orrison Distributing Co., Beverage Distributors, Elite Brands, Wine Connections, RNDC, Synergy Fine Wines, Pinnacle Distributing, True Brew, Alsco Linen, Western Slope Distributing, Sysco Foods of Denver, Vin Divino – Damon Ornowski, Cynthia Meyer, Premier Party Rentals, Blue Bird Productions, Southern Wine and Spirit, Just Janet’s Catering and Colorado Rocky Mountain School.Finally, we would like to recognize our many parent volunteers at the Carbondale Community School.
