Jana Gray Adams, Featured Artist, February 2020
For Jana Gray Adams, it’s all about clay. She’s an artist and, at heart, a ceramicist, but it took her a while to get there. After 40 years in Paonia, where she had a successful art business, Jana re-located to Montrose. After a little break, she’s making art again, and as a member of the Montrose Center for the Arts, also teaching it. “Everything has come full circle for me.” [Story by Linda White.]

ARTIST ON A HARLEY
The Gateway Loop
By Mike Simpson
A great little ride to break up the cabin fever that begins to set in this time of year is what I affectionately call the “Gateway Loop.” Of course, this time of year, it can be a bit brisk for a motorcycle ride.
By Deb Barr, Music Editor
For those who rely on music to make a living, performance is often key…and for live music to flourish, there must be live music venues. We’ve definitely a lot them here in Western Colorado—from small stage, intimate performances, to big-name shows in outdoor arenas and indoor performance halls.
