About this Event

(Denver, CO) Ranchlands proudly announces their 2019 exhibition of its annual cultural event – an immersive art retrospective featuring six acclaimed artists, (Duke Beardsley, Terry Gardner, Stephanie Hartshorn, Madeline Jorden, Jill Soukup, Stephen Weaver, Mark Gould, Robert Quimby, Bill Alther, Timothy Salisbury), who have creatively interpreted authentic ranch life after a 3-day retreat in southern Colorado on both Chico Basin Ranch outside of Colorado Springs and Medano Zapata Ranch located within The Great Sand Dunes National Park. This unique visual showcase of new frontiers in Western heritage has a 19-year history featuring hundreds of artists with thousands of attendees.

Chico Basin Ranch is an 87,000 acre ranch owned by the state of Colorado, managed by Ranchlands since 1999. The primary income producer for the Chico is its cattle business and under Ranchlands’ management, the ranch has won multiple conservation awards and hosts education programs for over 2,000 people each year. The Chico also includes a diversified complex of enterprises that range from hunting, fishing, and hospitality, to art exhibitions, concerts and the sale of high end leather goods produced on the ranch.

This art exhibition preserves traditions and landscapes by juxtaposing land and culture with urban and rural communities. The featured works, inspired by Ranchlands, specifically raise awareness around the crucial mission of progressive ranching and its focus on uniting conservation and ranching.

According to Duke Phillips, Ranchlands CEO and 3rd generation rancher, “At Ranchlands we work every day to preserve our ranching heritage and traditions by living them, while simultaneously embracing new ways of thinking. Art is a common language between even the most diverse set of people and we view this dialogue as an essential element to making connections outside of our traditional ranching circles. Our goal in doing this show is to provide a window into ranching as a way of life, and to illustrate the important work that is being done on the land.”

Duke Beardsley, a contributing artist collected worldwide whose western roots are integral to the subjects he paints summarizes the project this way, “I wanted to be a part of something bigger. Something that protects the land I’m inspired by and starts a communication between people that are a lot more similar than they think.”

Ranchlands is a Colorado-based Ranching and Ranch Management Company that owns ranching operations and manages others for large-scale ranch owners. Their goal is to preserve ecosystems and ranching heritage on a profitable basis from what the land will produce. Ranchlands has been featured in USA Today, Condé Nast, Harper’s Bazaar, The Denver Post and many more international, national, local and trade publications.
