Sculpture Shows Galore in this Art Weekend in Loveland
Last week we reminded you about Sculpture in the Park, the largest outdoor juried show in the US. But that is not the only outdoor sculpture show in town that weekend in Loveland! Each show has a different ‘flavor’ and each is wonderful. Check them out below and make plans for a full weekend because if you are like us, you won’t want to miss a thing! So rest up and get your comfy shoes on!
51st Annual Art in the Park
The longest running show is called Art in the Park, which is saying a lot! In fact this year marks the 51st annual show presented by The Thompson Valley Art League
This show includes sculpture, paintings, photography, ceramics, glass art, wood working, and jewelry…plus lots of other items for sale to interest every member of the family.

Loveland Fine Art & Wine Invitational
The newest show of the trio is Vermillion Productions’ Loveland Fine Art & Wine Invitational
This is the 3rd year for this show in Loveland, but the organization has been putting on top notch shows for more than 25 years–so you can be assured they know what they are doing.
This show runs Friday August 11-Sunday August 13 10am-5pm. Since this is the only show that is open to the general public on Friday (Sculpture in the Park is open only for the Patron Party that day) that means this is the place to be to get a jump start on your sculpture–and other art–weekend.
This fine art show includes some amazing sculptors as well as painters, photographers, and jewelry artists.
“The Fine Art and Wine Festival will join the festivities in Loveland with a stunning outdoor gallery showcasing renowned artists from around the Country displaying thousands of original works in a wide variety of mediums and subject matter; Including life-size, monumental, medium and small sculpture in bronze, stone, metal, wood, glass and mixed media; spectacular paintings in acrylic, oil and water colors, mixed media on canvas; batiks, etchings, custom furnishings and home decor.
Show patrons will enjoy the ambiance of strolling throughout the sculpture garden and outdoor gallery filled with fabulous art, sipping a selection of fine wines, and listening to the beautiful sounds of our talented line up of entertainers. For those that enjoy the finer things in life, the Loveland Fine Art and Wine Festival offers a great opportunity to indulge yourself in incredible art, continuous live musical performances, wine tasting, and the best barbeque in the Country!”
Some of the entertainment that will accompany the visual art feast are the Yellow Bird Dancers, Bluesman Mike Andersen and the Blues Review Band, Estun-Bah, Inka Gold, and Tony Duncan – Hoop Dancer
BTW, in case you want to see something more than just art, Loveland is located just east of the Rocky Mountains–which can be seen from all 3 of these venues–and is a short drive to Rocky Mountain National Park. Be sure to check out more things to do in Loveland while you are in town.
