Many of our towns provide a perfect backdrop for the artist to live, create and share their work. In Montrose we have a great tradition of the First Friday Art Stroll Downtown where each of the galleries host featured artists along with food and drinks for everyone to mingle, have fun and enjoy the beautiful sights. Our area has several dozen galleries of all types to take in the talents of our Western Slope artists. Many galleries offer classes to learn new ways of creating new and unique.


Downtown Montrose has a nice selection of galleries each offering something a little different to admire and purchase. On the First Friday Art Stroll you can take in all that they have to offer with a little extra flair for the occasion.
