Colorado Springs Art Gallery
We are a local downtown Colorado Springs art gallery known for its art showcases, events, large offerings of Colorado artwork for sale and many others from outside of it. Our gallery is a warm, intimate, showroom perfect for purchasing or viewing some of the best art in Colorado. Currently we list and display a diverse range of mediums including paintings, sculpture, sketches, mixed media, and more. So select a few pieces for your home or enjoy our fresh and contemporary selection of art exhibits, all hand selected by our curator, because no matter what you enjoy we have it. Modern, western, impressionist, pop, rustic, or local Colorado Springs art, you’ll always find something truly wonderful at the Modbo.
The Modbo jovially presents Small Works X, Colorado Springs’ original Small Works Show! This amazing show features over 500 pieces of art (!!!) by nearly 150 community artists in both The Modbo and S.P.Q.R. The pieces are hung floor to ceiling in a spectacular, salon-style display. A perfect show for holiday shopping, Small Works X is a buy-and-carry event. See a piece, buy a piece, take a piece with you! All pieces are under 24″ in every dimension. Where else can you shop local, support local artists and local galleries, and knock out presents for nearly everyone on your list?! The opening reception is from 5:00 pm until midnight on Friday, December 1st. The show runs through Friday, January 5th. Check facebook or themodbo.com for other hours throughout the month. The Modbo and SPQR are at 17b and 17c East Bijou, 80903, 719.633.4240, firstname.lastname@example.org The Modbo is located in the Arts Alley in downtown Colorado Springs at 17C E. Bijou. Find the stretch of Bijou that is between Cascade and Tejon, and go south down the alley.

***UPDATE!!! For the first time ever, the Ho Ho will be held in The Modbo proper instead of its neighbor gallery, SPQR. This means seating is especially… umm… intimate. Only 40 tickets per show! So reserve yours by emailing or calling ASAP!*** The Modbo naughtily presents The Modbo Ho Ho, an R-rated Christmas Cabaret! On Saturday, December 9th, please join Cabaret Mistresses Lauren Ciborowski and Solveig Olsen as well as special guests Penelope Mais Oui, Holly Seidcheck, Warren Epstein, Trish Doyle-Stahl, Claire Swinford, Max Ferguson, and more! This short show, for grown-ups only, will surely augment your holiday cheer! Now in its eighth year, The Modbo Ho Ho is an irreverent and festive romp through the holidays, including mostly tawdry songs, some dance, and a few brief moments of holiday earnestness. And rumor has it, Santa may make a very special appearance! Two performances, one at 7 and one at 9:30 pm at The Modbo, 17C East Bijou, 80903. Doors open promptly 30 minutes before each performance and not one second before. $15 strongly suggested donation. Adults only please.

NOW that’s what I call art
This art is a wonderful example of art from this period of art production. Some say its the best of those arts while others reserve judgement. First painted by world renowned art guy “Arty” it has since been aged like fine wine and had a fancy frame put around it to enhance its aesthetic assault on your taste.
Birds of a Feather
Put together as a tribute for the great “hair de jur” of 1890 this piece features exquisite use of water color, crayon color, and sun color, truly displaying the mastery of the artist and his wide range of talents. The authors identity remains a mystery to this day but some say it was the work of a poor farm boy in the Mississippi Delta who learned to read by way of twig bundling.
