About Studio & Gallery
Elizabeth Kinahan is one of the five member artists at Durango’s Studio & Gallery, a dynamic space that serves as a gallery, studio, retail center, and local hub for artists, creators, and makers. Kinahan’s work in particular is inspired by the agricultural animals that populate her beloved region of Southwest Colorado. We spoke to her about why the city of Durango is such a perfect place for Studio & Gallery to thrive.
The Keep-it-Local Mentality in Southwest Colorado
“It's a community of individuals like I have never met in my life. There’s a kind of keep-it-local mentality.”
The Arts Community in Durango
“Everybody really has a passion for well-being, getting outside, and community support. This is a town of 20,000 people, and I think that's within city limits. But the support and the camaraderie that you find here is just unparalleled.”
