about  us

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.


21st Annual Art Market

Open for Artists to Apply

May 29 - 31, 2021

Sponsored by the Art Center of Estes Park

The Art Center of Estes Park proudly presents its 21st Annual Art Market, May 29-31, 2021. This year’s Art Market has changed to an indoor show in the Pavilion located at the Estes Park Pavilion. Unfortunately, the 2020 Art Market was cancelled due to Covid-19. Therefore, the year’s show is by invitation only to the juried artists of 2020. These artists, from Colorado and surrounding states, will showcase a wide variety of fine arts and crafts. You may find that special treasure, or gift item, amongst the rows of functional pottery, photography, jewelry, art glass, woodcrafts, fiber art, metal crafts, oil, pastel, acrylic, and watercolor paintings, and much more!


The Art Market is easy to find in the Pavilion at the Estes Park Event Center, 1125 Rooftop Way,  on Saturday, May 29, 9-5 pm, Sunday, May 30, 9-5 pm, and Memorial Day, Monday, May 31, 9-3 pm. The Art Market is completely wheelchair accessible.


Only if Covid-19 regulations allow, the Art Market will host a Silent Auction to benefit The Art Center of Estes Park. On display and available for your bid will be a wide variety of artwork donated by local artists and vendors. The Silent Auction is held in intervals throughout the weekend offering several opportunities to bid on new works. So stop by, place a bid, join in the friendly competition and see if that special piece of art might belong to you!
