In December a new Co Op gallery opened called the Art Gallery at Keystone Lake. Now, 22 Summit County artists have work on display. The gallery has many fine examples of their work including watercolor, acrylic and oil paintings plus photography, ceramics, jewelry and metal work.

Secure drop-off boxes will be placed around the county to receive these submissions in an anonymous fashion.Drop off your secrets at: the central library in Frisco, Allure Aesthetics and Laser Center, Red Buffalo Tea & Coffee in SIlverthorne, and the Breckenridge Theatre. You can also go online by visiting the Backstage website (see below) and filling out the form anonymously.Put your information down on a piece of paper, taking care to keep it anonymous. You may submit as many entries as you like. You are encouraged to pour your heart out and confess any and all secrets and dreams you keep inside. (Confession is good for the soul, yes?) No limit to length. No secret or dream is too shocking or too tame for inclusion. The deadline has been extended to March 25. At the end of this period, all boxes will be gathered and opened, and shows will be crafted based upon these submissions. For more information, visit
