On Aug. 20, Tivoli Brewing Company, the oldest brewery in Colorado is sponsoring the fundraiser for the Gilpin County Arts Association, located in the oldest public building in Colorado, which hosts the oldest, continually running juried art show in the state.

Gilpin Arts presents Fundraiser for the Arts on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 5-8 p.m. in Washington Hall, 117 Eureka Street in Central City. Guests will enjoy an evening of fun, local history, and of course, art! The Gael, a local Celtic ensemble, will provide music for the evening as attendees share complimentary hors d’oeuvres, wine and craft beer.

The fundraiser will include a wall of wine from which participants can draw(for a $10 chance, draw a bottle of wine guaranteed to be worth at least $20), a silent auction allowing purchases from local, mountain artists, a drawing for prestigious artwork and a grab bag gift table.

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased in advance, at the Gallery or $55 at the door on Aug. 20. Other major sponsors for the event are United Power and Reserve Casino and Hotel. For more information, visit or call the Gallery at 303.582.5952.

The Gael, an acoustic ensemble from Nederland and Eldora, performs Celtic, bluegrass, and old-time music during the event. The trio includes Laura Fisher on hammered dulcimer, Debbie Smiley on fiddle and Bill Ikler on guitar.

Gilpin County Arts Association is a 501(c)3 organization, founded in 1947, and whose mission is to expand the appreciation and understanding of art, to provide Rocky Mountain artists with the opportunity to present and sell their work, and to provide financial assistance to the RE-1 Gilpin County School Art program.
