Local Artists Series

We love local art! Each weekend we display works from a local artist.  The artwork will be displayed in our greenhouse where you can explore some of the finer things in life – art and horticulture. Most pieces are for sale, and all profits go to the artist.

Maggie Daniel November 10-12

Specializing in nature, fine art, and live action concert work, Maggie Daniel has pursued her love of photography for over three decades. She moved from New England to Fort Collins in 1992, and has enjoyed the immeasurable beauty of Colorado’s mountains, lakes, and gardens. Maggie strives to evoke an element of personal expression in all her work, hoping to convey her joy and gratitude for life on this earth! Whether it’s a colorful flower, a breathtaking landscape, or an inviting face – you’ll be drawn into Maggie’s world as she sees it through the lens of her camera.

Maggie Daniel will be on hand to greet you, share stories about her work, and provide information about pricing and availability for your photographic needs.

Lisa will be donating a portion of her sales made to Foco Cafe! Lisa is a local photographer who was born and raised in the beautiful city of Chicago. In 2010, she decided to pack her bags and live out a long held dream of residing near the mountains. With city roots and mountain wings, she considers herself blessed to get to appreciate and photograph vastly different landscapes and lifestyles. She now resides happily in Fort Collins with her husband and Chocolate Lab.

Being raised in a family of creators, Lisa developed a strong love for the arts and photography at a young age. She is the owner of Flash House Photography, and photographs everything from babies to bands, with a strong focus on portrait and family photography. When she is not shooting for Flash House, Lisa is taking full advantage of the beautiful Colorado landscape. She has built a large personal portfolio of Colorado landscape photography that will be displayed in this exhibit.

Stacey Mead December 8-10

Her beginnings started at the base of a mountain in LaPorte, Colorado. A mountain which provided a vast array of wild life, planted in her a deep seeded love for the outdoors. Finally, after three decades of venturing into these secluded areas, which remain mostly untouched by humans, she is able to bring some of that beauty to you….the ones who also find serenity in nature. She captures these moments, because they capture her, and she extends her warmest invitations for you to come experience the same.
