Visual arts put Highlands on gallery map

As Aspen Highlands Village still struggles to find itself, the answer increasingly seems to be in visual arts.

Highlands resident Olivia Daane’s LivAspenArt has become a busy little studio/gallery space. The Aspen Artists Gallery, run by West Townsend, features the work of some 60 local artists, representing virtually every style and medium one can imagine.

Capping it all is the Harvey/Meadows Gallery, where the emphasis is on ceramic art (it is run by two ceramists, Sam Harvey and Alleghany Meadows). But the gallery gives the medium the widest latitude possible, as witnessed in the two current exhibits: New Mexico’s Michael Corney makes pots and sculptures that combine humor and mock frightfulness. The group show entitled the Figure features human-oriented works in a variety of media. Both shows run through July 29.
