Show rescheduled to Sept. 26 – Nov. 1, art sales moved online for the first time

 

The 29th annual Colorado Governor’s Art Show, one of the largest fine art shows to exclusively feature Colorado artists, has made several changes for its 2020 show in light of COVID-19 safety protocols. The show will now run Sept. 26 – Nov. 1 at the Loveland Museum and, for the first time ever, you will be able to purchase artwork online.

 

“While the world stood still, Colorado’s top fine artists were creating art for us. They delved deep within and masterfully brought forth the magnificent collection of work that will only be shown at the Governor’s Art Show,” said Ruth Scott, Governor’s Art Show director. “As it turns out, the Governor’s Art Show will be Colorado’s only major fine art shows in 2020 and will be an experience of beauty and delight. Our show and sale is the best place to see and purchase work from some of Colorado’s best.”

 

How to purchase art

Online sales will open to the public at noon Sept. 26. Art purchases, artist previews, and images of artwork for sale will all be available on GovernorsArtShow.org and on the Governor’s Art Show Facebook page and Instagram profile.

 

How to see the show in person

The month-long show will be held at the Loveland Museum, opening at noon Sept. 26. Exhibit admission is $7 and free for museum members. The museum will be able to accommodate up to 50 visitors at a time to ensure proper social distancing. Staff, volunteers, and visitors will be required to wear face coverings during the initial reopening phase. Patrons who are in one or more of the high-risk categories are encouraged to visit the museum during special hours on Wednesdays from noon – 1 p.m. and Fridays from 2 -3 p.m. However, seniors and people with serious medical conditions are encouraged to see the show through a virtual tour that will be available on the website.

 

The Governor’s Art Show is presented by Loveland and Thompson Valley Rotary Clubs and endorsed by the Governor of Colorado. Net proceeds will benefit Rotary-sponsored charitable projects and causes. One-third of net proceeds will go to the Thompson Education Foundation’s Homeless Assistance Fund and additional funds will go toward scholarships for local art students.

 

The goal of the Thompson Education Foundation’s Homeless Assistance Fund is to ensure education stability and success by providing support and assistance to students and families in homeless situations.
