Learning, inspiration and long lasting friendships
To strengthen the relationship between our communities through art. To share and appreciate the work of our local artists, which is an expression of our culture. To exchange ideas and expand artistic opportunities.
The Artist Exchange Program with Bariloche, originated in 2014 as an initiative by Roaring Fork Valley artist, Missy Prudden, and Bariloche artist, Paula Fischer, both of whom still play a key role in the program. Every year we have a local Aspen artist travel to Bariloche and we host an artist from Bariloche. During the exchange the artists conduct classes and talks, show their artwork and meet with other local artists within the community they are visiting. We are thankful to The Art Base (Basalt), The Red Brick Center for the Arts (Aspen), and the Asociación Artistas Plásticos Bariloche for supporting this program.
