Light Rail Art Gallery

The Light Rail Art Gallery is the premier art gallery in charming Olde Town Arvada.  Bought by Alita McManis in 2017, the gallery has become not just a place for incredible artwork and artists, but a venue for parties, mixers, music jams, and art classes galore!

With over 20 artists from Arvada and the surrounding areas, The Light Rail Art Gallery is more than just a destination, it’s a rich journey into a world of beauty and surprises.  This is especially true every First Friday of every month, when the gallery celebrates the arts with an evening reception, music, food, and adult beverages.  It becomes a magical place to meet the artists, make new friends, and do some networking.

Stop by today to enjoy Olde Town’s best shop, discover something amazing, and experience the joy purchasing fabulous artwork can bring.
