ABOUT the GALLERIES AT THE DAIRY
The Dairy’s galleries began with the inception of the Colorado Community Curator (CCC) program in 1997 with a roughed-out gallery area and rolling wall padlocked each night for security purposes. When Phase II of The Dairy renovation was completed in 2001, the McMahon Gallery, In Focus Gallery, Polly Addison Exhibition Space and The MacMillan Family Lobby opened as premier gallery spaces for local art exhibitions. Today, our Dairy galleries exhibit the work of more than eighty regional, national and international artists in eighteen juried shows each year.
The Dairy Galleries are growing in recognition throughout Colorado and , nationally and internationally. In January of each year, a Call for Entries is made for art to be shown in our galleries for the following year; e.g. in February 2012, the Call for Entries will be made for juried shows in 2013. Information about the application process will be given on this site at that time. The application process will close in late March. The Dairy’s Visual Art Committee (VAC) will jury applications in April with final selection notification made to artists in May or June. The volunteer committee VAC is comprised of business owners, artists, CU faculty, art patrons, board members and The Dairy’s Curator of Visual Art and Education.
