Colorado Springs Art Gallery
We are a local downtown Colorado Springs art gallery
The Modbo and SPQR Art Space jovially present Small Works Twelve, 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 Twelve is a buy-and-carry event. See a piece, buy a piece, take a piece with you! All pieces are under 18″ in every dimension.

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.
