The 2021 show will feature four different works of art from each artist at the Loveland Museum. The majority of the artwork in this year’s show is one-of-a-kind and will be available for purchase throughout the run of the Governor’s Art Show & Sale. The Governor’s Art Show will manage “on line” art sales for your convenience beginning Saturday, May 22nd opening at noon through June 27th.  We invite you to experience this show in person at the Loveland Museum or online at GovernorsArtShow.org.

In addition to the chosen artists, the show will include two Legacy Artists who have participated in past years of the Colorado Governor’s Art Show & Sale and have been strong advocates for the arts. The chosen artists are Denny Haskew and Daniel Sprick. Invited past Legacy Artist recipients participating are Jane DeDecker, Kim English, Sandy Scott and Mark Thompson.

The Governor’s Art Show is presented by Loveland and Thompson Valley Rotary Clubs and endorsed by the Governor of Colorado. The Show is truly Art With Heart as 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.
