In celebration of seven years of fine art in Park City, we are sharing this photo series from our beginning. Oh, to be 25 again…

It’s been an extraordinary seven years — thank you for being along for the ride. Below are a few photos from those early times, in just 1,000 square feet at 580 Main Street. There we were, painting the gallery space, receiving artwork from our brave artists, and making final adjustments.

In the interest of being sentimental, here are a few of our first blog posts:
