Trio of Aspens Telluride’s First Thursday Art Walk, produced by the Telluride Council for the Arts & Humanities, is a celebration of the local art scene, when galleries, studios and stores around Main Street stay open late until 8 p.m. In March Lustre Gallery, 171 South Pine, celebrates the work of artists Michele Scrivner and her partner/assistant Brian Billow, which in turn celebrates nature.

It is not so much that Scrivner aims to exactly replicate the beauty of the natural world, but rather to express the feelings a place evokes through simple lines, rich hues, and complex textures. These feelings are colored green, as in eco-crusader.

“My art is meant to convey a sense of earthiness juxtaposed with a contemporary edge. My work represents the elements of earth, sky and water, but I blur the line between the elements to illustrate the trickle down effect: what is done to one impacts the other.”

Scrivner’s artistic journey began as a special ed teacher in her home state of Wisconsin, where she taught her student to use stencils to create their own works of art. In 2006, Scrivner moved to a place near Colorado Springs, now home base for a flourishing artistic career. The artist is represented by galleries in Aspen, Beaver Creek, and Telluride and boasts collectors around the globe.
