The Telluride Council for the Arts and Humanities is one of the oldest nonprofits in the Telluride region, dating back to the town's bad old days, 1971, when hippies and miners made strange bedfellows. TCAH is and has always been an arts advocacy organization designed to support grassroots artists and initiatives, and public participation in local arts. The nonprofit hosts numerous free-to-public artist seminars, "First Thursdays" Art Walk, and runs the Stronghouse Studios to name just a few of the ways TCAH helps local artists help themselves.
Now its our turn to help TCAH. But the opportunity is a win-win: The Telluride Council for the Arts and Humanities' 2010 Art Desktop Calendar, its signature fundraiser, is now available at locations around town and at Stronghouse Studios. Specifically, calendars,$12 each ($15 each for mail orders) plus tax, can be purchased at TCAH ( 283 South Fir Street, Tuesday-Friday, 12noon-4pm), or at Between the Covers bookstore, Bootdoctors in Mountain Village, and during Noel Night at Cashmere Red, and the Holiday Bazaar at the High School (December 4-6th, the first weekend in December). Income from calendar sales provides critical support for the commission's ongoing programs.
The 6 x 7", stand-up, spiral-bound desktop easel-type calendar is a miniature art gallery, with the art changing from month to month, created by artists with international reputations, such as Roger Mason, Susan McCormick, Bruce Gomez, Meredith Nemirov.
