Chris Alvarez was accepted into the the 29th Annual Colorado Governor’s Art Show & Sale. The Governor’s Show introduces the public to the fine art of many of the state’s top artists. The juried show seeks entries from all Colorado artists and exhibits the chosen work in a museum setting. The sale proceeds support Colorado artists and many youth and community needs in Larimer County, Colorado through the Loveland and Thompson Valley Rotary Clubs.

The 29th Annual Show will be held at the prestigious Loveland Museum located at 503 N. Lincoln Avenue, April 24 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.  The show is open to the public on Saturday, April 25 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  The show will run through Sunday, May 31.

Funds raised at the show support the Loveland Rotary Club and Thompson Valley Rotary Clubs’ various causes for local youth including scholarships for local art students and Rotary Youth Leadership Camp. This year, the show has designated the Thompson Education Foundation Homeless Assistance Fund (TEF) to receive one third of the net proceeds.
