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.
Deb Coombs has been a fiber artist for 40 years and her passion is for weaving and color. She produces one-of-a-kind hand-woven, hand-painted, hand-dyed garments and accessories from natural fibers. Her primary emphasis is on color and simple weave structures that allow garments to flow and drape. In the last several years Deb’s love of dyeing has focused on the “woven shibori” technique (a variation on ancient Japanese dyeing) as well as more traditional shibori (pole-wrapped) for silks.
