FINANCIAL HELP- We depend a great deal on donations to support our
operations. We need to upgrade our Gift Shop/Gallery check-out desk, obtain a receipt printer for our credit sales, and need two new computers to facilitate bookkeeping and financial reporting. No amount is too small! Thank you to everyone who donated to us at last year’s Holiday Giving Celebration!

NEW MEMBERS- We would like more members from our region to meet a goal of increasing membership by 10% over 2021. Benefits of membership are:

  • Satisfaction of supporting the arts, keeping the arts vibrant and alive in the Spanish Peaks region.
  • Quarterly email newsletter with news of SPACe and area art & artist activities. New members are recognized in the newsletter
  • Email notices of opening receptions and Gallery events.
  • Discounted commission fee charged on sales of members’ art in Gallery and Gift Shop.

Membership dues start at $30 for an individual; $40 for couple/ family, with higher levels available, renewable annually. Details for joining are available at the Gallery, and on our website. If your auction gift is for a membership, please indicate on the membership form that you heard about us from the Holiday Giving Celebration and contributed your dues through the Virtual Auction.

BOARD MEMBERS- If you are, or become, a member of SPACe, we invite
you to consider becoming a Director on our Board to discuss and decide on goals, policies and direction for the organization. Meetings are held every other month (6 or 7 times/year) and last 2-3 hours but each member serves on committees and helps out in many areas.

VOLUNTEERS- There is always something to do. If you are interested in
volunteering, please contact us by email. Right now we need a local La Veta person to commit to snow shoveling during the winter, tech savvy persons to help with producing/editing videos, and posting on social media. Many other opportunities are available- coordinating art shows (intake and hanging) help with mailings, filing, maintenance tasks.

Spanish Peaks Arts Council (SPACe)

  • Spanish Peaks Arts Council (SPACe) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) member-supported community of artists and art loving residents dedicated to the support of the arts and art education in the Spanish Peaks region of Southern Colorado. SPACe serves our community through supporting artists and promoting the arts, (particularly the visual arts), through workshops, rotating art shows in our Gallery & Gift Shop, and Art in the Park summer festival. We believe that the arts enhance communities by improving the lives of individuals in the areas of personal growth & recovery, (needed after the pandemic!) social connections, better work/life balance and boosting income through sales. We encourage both beginning and experienced artists to broaden their creative practice and we particularly believe in the benefits of art education for youth by sponsoring the spring Student Art Show and Youth Art Workshops in the summer.
