His raspy voice channels a sound beyond his years, like a railroad bluesman trapped in a mountaineer's heart.
The River Arkansas
The River Arkansas is the newest project of Mike Clark (The Ghost of Michael Clark, The Haunted Windchimes, The Sugar Sounds) out of Pueblo. Named after the river he lives beside, this is a band made up active musicians from across the front range. Their first release, Golden Light, draws stylistically from all Clark’s past musical endeavors, joining elements of rock and roll, americana, soul, and gypsy folk.

Elegance in Method
Expressions of sacred dimensions in sculpture form represent Tracey’s direct connection with the harmonious lines of nature. Each piece is created through the spiral motion of intention, energy exchange and patience. Via a cleansing ritual and a "redressing" through adornment of natural vibrational objects and materials, Tracey’s animal skull sculptures are alchemized and celebrated in their fullness of Spirit!
Bianca's wood burnings and engravings require patience, as it takes immense precision and clarity to elegantly fuse with the natural map. Wood slabs alone force her to yield to their wondrous beauty and come to the understanding that even when untouched, they are art. Dianca desires to fuse with this extraordinary beauty and therefore represent the human connection with nature, hopefully allowing others to feel that connection as well.
Christopher J. Schranck
Christopher gets most of his inspiration from life experiences, traveling, nature and other artist. Finding found objects and making them a part of the composition is a large part of his work. Observing nature and what nature does to manmade objects is a lot of what goes into the focus of his paintings. You will see a great deal of texture and contrast.
Less Is More Ceramic Design

License No. 1
License No. 1 is an upscale speakeasy style bar located downstairs in Hotel Boulderado. In 1969 the first Legal License in Boulder to serve hard liquor in a restaurant was issued to the Catacombs Bar and Grill located in the basement of the Boulderado. And so License No. 1 Liquor Bar continues with the very same liquor license first issued in 1969.
