Several years ago we made our first trek to Creede, Colorado. Labor Day offers the Creede Salsa Festival. The 4th of July means the Days of 92. We have enjoyed both of these holidays in Creede. Recently we added the “Taste of Creede Arts Festival” over Memorial Day Weekend. One of the features of the two-day event is a “Quick Draw” event for artists. Each participating artist is given one hour to produce a work on the main street in Creede. After the one hour is over an auction is held. The proceeds go to sponsor the next year’s event.
One of the key artists for the event is Steven Quiller. He produced the artwork selected for this year’s event T-Shirt. Quiller chiefly paints with watercolors. He produced a piece for the Quick Draw and then offered an additional piece for the auction. It was quite a treat to watch the artists at work and we were able to take in a good bit of the auction. This is a photo of Steven Quiller standing next to one of the pieces auctioned at the Taste of Creede event.
