Nestled in Southwest Colorado at the base of the Continental Divide, Pagosa Springs is one of the state's last gems. Known for amazing hot springs, abundant sunshine, and a small-town feel, Pagosa Springs is the perfect spot for Colorado's next award-winning fine art Festival. Pagosa is Colorado's new hot market with people flocking here to live or buy a second home in the mountains. ART! Pagosa is located in the heart of downtown, Town Park is right off of Pagosa St (Hwy 160). Pagosa is growing in culture and is full of residents eager to experience ART! Between the two galleries and PAI, we will send out email blasts to invite savvy art buyers as well as our extensive marketing: online, newspapers, magazines and banners.
In addition to the summer residents, Pagosa Springs unique attractions and location bring around 375,000 tourists to town each year. This Weekend in September is a great time for art enthusiasts to visit Pagosa as the kids are back in school, the colors are changing and Pagosa's Colorfest Hot Air Balloon ascension is the following weekend.
