The shows themselves, however, were as up-and-down as spring weather.

  412. Two great art openings tomorrow

    Be sure to block out some time tomorrow to visit both Mountain Living Studio (741 Manitou Ave.) in Manitou Springs and Kathleen McFadden's Range Gallery (2428 W. Colorado Ave.) in Old Colorado City for an opening reception and a grand opening, respectively.
