The Colorado Abandoned Newsletter!
"There is a time in the last few days of summer when the ripeness of autumn fills the air."
"People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy."
"Autumn arrives in early morning, but spring at the close of a winter day."
"It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it."
"I love the scents of winter! For me, it's all about the feeling you get when you smell pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread and spruce."
A Taylor Swift quote!? Really?
What you can expect to see in this issue.
You can expect a little shorter newsletter with most of the same goodies in it this time. As always, we will try to keep it entertaining for you nevertheless.

Koshare Museum Show
It is a little strange to have our photography be on display for more than a month at one location, but we are very happy for the exposure we are receiving for our canvas prints at this venue.
The Colorado Abandoned photographic exhibition will be on display through the end of December, 2017 at the Koshare Museum in La Junta, Colorado. Please visit the Koshare Museum at 115 W 18th Street. We are so pleased to be able to share this space with some of the highest quality Native American art in the United States. The art and artifacts that are on display here is truly amazing. We are so honored.
As mentioned in the last issue, we have made special arrangements with the museum for our canvas prints to be available for purchase 'off-of-the-wall' and the customer will be able to take the piece(s) with them at the time of purchase during regular store hours.

Just a quick note - there will be an Annual Autumn Art show this October 26-29 at the Shore Arts Center in Lamar, CO. You can find out more and how to register to participate by visiting this link - http://www.avwpe.org/autumn-art-show/.
