8th Annual Deck The Walls: An Artisanal Market
November 15-December 28, 2018
Presented each holiday season by Carbondale Arts, Deck The Walls is carefully juried and open to artists and crafts-folk all over the Roaring Fork Valley and the state of Colorado. Our goal is to provide vendors with an exceptional venue for their unique wares and to offer our community a chance to take home thoughtful and well-made local and regional goods.
Carbondale Arts is cultivating a vibrant collective of local and regional artists, designers, and hand-makers for this year’s Deck The Walls. We strive to help small businesses grow and to encourage community to engage and connect with the artisans while supporting our local economy during the holidays.
Applications will be made available in early October for our 8th annual Deck The Walls in 2018.
38th Annual Valley Visual Art Show
January 12-February 16, 2018
This annual exhibition, opening the 2nd Friday of each January, accepts only 50 artworks from 50 artists on a first-come first-served basis in an effort to keep all artwork within the gallery space at The Launchpad. As always, this show is open to everyone living in a ZIP code beginning with “816” and who is a current member of Carbondale Arts.
Our 2018 38th Annual Valley Visual Art Show is now filled. We look forward to the public opening reception with the artists on Friday, January 12, from 6-8pm! See the Valley Visual page under the R2 Gallery tab (above) for more information.

Before taking down our June 2017 exhibition "Correspondence", curator Reina Katzenberger (and owner of max.ink) made a Virtual Reality Digital Archive of the installation using equipment from Mattersport who created an online 3D experience.
