I am very excited to announce a new show, soon to be up at the Art Depot in Steamboat Springs.
“Generations – The Carpenter Ranch” is a collaborative exhibit completed in partnership with the Nature Conservancy, river rock Sculptor Camille DiTrani, and landscape painter Chula Beauregard. After a year of artistic study at the Carpenter Ranch near Hayden, CO, Chula Beauregard created significant studio pieces to capture the pulse of the ranch and its workings. Alongside the oil paintings, Camille DiTrani, Colorado Art Ranch Alumna from 2012, will create river rock installations to invoke the spirit of the Yampa River. Complimenting these artistic interpretations will be outreach materials from The Nature Conservancy to illuminate their conservation work in the Yampa Valley.
Grand Opening February 2, 2018 at the Steamboat Springs Arts Council Depot Art Gallery in Steamboat Springs, CO. Runs to March 31, 2018.
All paintings will be for sale, and can be viewed online at https://chulabeauregard.com/shop/

About Camille DiTrani
Camille DiTrani has been active in the arts all her life: from fronting a rock band in the late 1970s in Greenwich Village to writing and creating sculpture and jewelry. Her creativity led her to the Carpenter Ranch in 2012 to participate in the contemporary art program, Colorado Art Ranch. Here, she discovered the art of balance and contemplation through making river rock sculptures. She currently lives in Steamboat Springs.
About The Carpenter Ranch
The Carpenter Ranch sits 4 miles east of Hayden, CO, and 17 miles west of Steamboat Springs. The Nature Conservancy acquired the 900-acre ranch in 1996 to serve as the centerpiece of its broader effort to conserve the natural and agricultural heritage of the Yampa River Valley. Today, Betsy and Geoff Blakeslee manage this historic, biologically significant property as a working cattle ranch to explore ways to simultaneously pursue agricultural production and the conservation of streamside and wetland habitats.
