Who We Are

Originally established in 1989, The Mountain Artists are a group of talented artists and non-artists who are continually igniting their passion for all forms of art. The Mountain Artists are consistently promoting, encouraging and supporting the visual arts in the Woodland Park, Teller County, Pikes Peak, Colorado region. We truly believe that Art enriches everyone’s lives.

We're always excited to share the world of art with new visitors and old friends of all ages. The Mountains Artists group has excelled in touching new artists of all ages throughout our community within the Pikes Peak region. We strive to offer a relaxed, friendly connection where nationally recognized & award winning local artists are very willing to share their skills and experience with our newest members.

Our “community” includes the entire Ute Pass Area. The friendly and historical cities and towns of Cascade, Chipita Park, Green Mountain Falls, Crystola, Woodland Park, Divide, Florissant, Lake George, Cripple Creek, Victor, and Deckers in Colorado.

Whether you are just beginning your journey into exploring the visual arts or have many years of experience, we hope you will join us in promoting, encouraging and supporting the arts throughout our mountain community. Our beautiful Colorado setting is the perfect place to discover, enjoy and explore the artist in you!

Our Goals

  • Promote the visual arts for all members of our community through exhibitions, events and education
  • Encourage an appreciation and awareness of visual arts in our community.
  • Support the concept of an “arts community” in the area.

What We Do

As a group that is passionate about promoting, encouraging and supporting all realms of the visual arts, we take an active approach in reaching those goals.

We as Mountain Artists promote the visual arts through the annual Mountain Arts Festival, the annual Holiday Member’s Art Show & Sale, our various locations of Mountain Artists exhibits.

We as Mountain Artists encourage the visual arts through the annual Teller County Student Art Show, the Summer Teen Art Workshop, Youth Scholarships, additional workshops, visits to museums and galleries, and other related events.

We as Mountain Artists support the concept of an “arts community” through the cultivation of art appreciation within our community. Not only through our own exhibitions, events and education but also through our support of other forms of art expression within our community.

Our Meetings

Mountain artists meet the 2nd Saturday of each month at 9:00 AM downstairs at the Ute Pass Cultural Center in Woodland Park, CO.

Membership is $25 for an individual and $35 for family. We welcome new members!
