Don’t miss the 48th Annual Carbondale Mountain Fair July 26-28, 2019 in Sopris Park. The Mountain Fair draws over 145 vendors poised to bring their unique and diverse homemade wares to town each summer. In addition to vendors, Mountain Fair features non-stop entertainment–both in live music and various forms of performing arts; a family-area called The Oasis which provides interactive, creative experiences for children; great food; friendly competitions that run the gamut from pie baking to wood splitting, and an amazing spirit. That spirit is best evidenced by the over 300 volunteers who come together to run the fair. Throughout the weekend, over 20,000 people pass through from across the state and all over the country! Vendor Hours are on Friday from 12-8pm, Saturday 10am to 8pm, and Sunday 10am to 5pm.

Carbondale Arts presents “Cross-Pollinate: Works on Paper”, a group exhibition curated by Marcia Weese with an opening reception on Thursday, July 11, from 6-8pm at the R2 Gallery located inside The Launchpad at 76 S. 4th Street in Carbondale. “Cross-Pollinate” brings a variety of professionals together, including architects, sculptors, ceramic artists, printmakers, (and even a theoretical physicist!), with the common thread being works on paper.
Curator Marcia Weese (printmaker) brings together 8 other professionals including Gordon Baym (theoretical physicist), Olivia Emery (architect), Jody Guralnick (painter), Sam Harvey (ceramicist), Charmaine Locke (sculptor/painter), Julia Marshall (landscape architect), James Surls (sculptor), and Brad Zeigel (architect).
“Cross-Pollinate” is generously supported by DHM Design, an employee-owned planning and landscape architecture firm that provides a range of services, including landscape architecture, land planning, ecological planning and urban design to clients nationwide since 1975.

July through August, 2019
I’m a dog-loving, road-biking, outdoor photographer and graphic designer. You’ve probably seen me working here before – as coffee is life… For the last four years, I’ve been a proud Carbondale resident since relocating from North Carolina after graduating from UNCW. I found the beautiful Roaring Fork Valley on a road biking tour across America in support of affordable housing in 2015.
All pets featured in this show are from the Valley (mainly Bonedale)! These pets are also all members of Dog’s Best Friend’s pack, our local pet care business. Ashley, owner of DBF, and myself worked together to bring you this explosion of cuteness and fur. I love capturing the essence of an animals’ personality on camera by spending the day with them hiking, playing in water (or leaves or snow), and finding the most picturesque location around town.
Book your pet photography session at email@example.com or give me a call at 740-703-1887.
