Artist Testimonials:

“As an artist at (Cars and Colors)Telluride Autumn Classic in Telluride Colorado, I’d like to express what an enjoyable experience it was for me. Hats off to the organizers who were friendly, organized and responsive. I sold enough of my artwork to ensure that I will return in 2022. It was a long drive for me but in the end well worth it. There was an ample amount of high end buyers spending money in my booth. I really enjoyed Telluride and explored some of the many great restaurants in town. The art show is held in Mountain Village which is beautiful and the scenery around Telluride can not be beat.”
Loren Feldman- Feldman Custom Knives

“This was my first year attending the Telluride Autumn Classic Fine Arts Show and it is now one of my favorites! Mountain Village in Telluride is an idyllic setting for this boutique high end art festival. Qualified buyers, great location and the artist selection was so diverse and well thought out. I highly recommend this art show and being an artist it lands in my top 5 art shows to participate in!”

“Telluride Cars and Colors/Fine Art & Sculpture Show is a GREAT! new show, in Telluride, Colorado, which takes place at the the top of Mountain Village. It’s a smaller show, more of boutique ‘collectors’ event, and my new favorite show. Although the numbers of attendees is lower than what you would expect from usual, larger shows, the ratio of discerning, qualified buyers is higher than I’ve seen at any show. The setting is fantastic, at the base of the lifts, 360 degree views of the Telluride Valley, free gondola ride access into Telluride, with many amazing restaurants and breweries to choose from. The time of year is at the peak of the Fall color change, and I was blown away by the intensity of the brilliant colors! Being from Utah, that’s saying something! Lodging accommodations are reasonable for a high end location, and Artists have VIP access to the Cars and Colors events which cater to collectors of vintage exotic sports cars. This gem of a show is destined to become one of the most sought after shows for Artists and Collectors!”

“The Telluride Autumn Classic Fine Arts Festival is one of the best in the nation! The folks that run the show are there to care for and support the artists. It is very well organized. Load in and load out were a breeze!  We met good qualified buyers and plan to be back again next year for sure!
