Upcoming Exhibits


The ART LIBRARY (upstairs at DAC) is supported by a volunteer committee of accomplished local artist-curators, known as the Friends of the Art Library (FOAL): Barbara Tobin KlemaMary Ellen Long (FOAL founder), Leesa Zarinelli GawlikDeborah GortonLouise Grunewald and Jane Steele.

FOAL presents six contemporary exhibits per year, including notable artists of local and national/international acclaim – primarily in the mediums of paper, printmaking and fiber arts.  Exhibits are accompanied by artists lectures, demonstrations and workshops to deepen the connection of art-making with the community.

In 2016, DAC was pleased to acknowledge the decades-long contribution of FOAL in the annual Sweethearts of the Arts gala.  The video below celebrates their commitment to not only the Durango Arts Center, but the advancement of diverse, contemporary arts in our community.
