The Art Center of Estes Park was established in 1987 and offers an extensive collection of fine art including painting, photography, jewelry, ceramics, glass, fiber, and woodworking. In addition, we present opportunities for education in the visual arts, and act as an advocate and partner for community arts development.

This was the vision of several local artists, many of whom are still participating members. We are dedicated to education and excellence in the visual arts, and is operated through artist and community volunteers, membership, sales, and donations. Our mission is to provide a facility that supports and promotes regional artists; to present opportunities for education in the visual arts, and to act as an advocate and partner for community arts development.


The Center now represents local and regional artists from across the Rocky Mountain area. We feature the high-quality artwork of 40 local Colorado artists in a broad selection of media. Whether you’re searching for a large piece of fine art or photography to enhance your home, or the perfect gift of jewelry, fiber, pottery, or a notecard for a friend, we have it.


We feature a new exhibit approximately every six weeks, opened by a public reception featuring refreshments and entertainment.  We invite you to come and view these fine artists' work and to shop for additions to your home or business collections.

Bruce Boynton

Bruce Boynton is a landscape artist living in northern Colorado. He took art classes in high school and college and painted as a hobby. With a business/accounting degree from Colorado State University, he returned to painting after retirement in 2015. He studied at a fine arts academy in Loveland, Colorado, for 2 1/2 years. He has attended numerous painting workshops with award-winning landscape artists and continues study with in-person workshops and online resources.

"I enjoy painting peaceful and interesting outdoor scenes in a representational style, capturing the light and depth of the scene. I take advantage of the beautiful Colorado landscapes around me.   While a painting is often inspired by a real place, creativity and instinct  influence the final vision. Art museums and galleries are always on my list of places to visit, and I am inspired by the work of the many outstanding landscape artists here in Colorado and around the country.
