Light Rail Art Gallery

Our featured artist this month is Steve Galbraith.  Steven is a long time Arvada resident. He began painting at the age of 12, encouraged in Jr High by a remarkable Art Teacher and has never lost the fantasy of creativity.

His pieces draw you in and ask you to stay awhile.  The deep, rich colors are a soulful extension of the artist and his delight in the wold around him.  Be sure to stop in on First Friday to speak with him and see more of his paintings!

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.
