Silverthorne artist exhibits at Denver Performing Arts Center

SILVERTHORNE – Local watercolor artist Barry Westerland entered his first juried art show, and two of his paintings were accepted for the 2003 “This is Colorado” exhibit at the Denver Performing Arts Center. His paintings, “South Park” and “Still Life No. 3,” were hanging in the Temple Buell Theater during the month of May, and more than 4,000 people have viewed them.

Westerland moved to Silverthorne in October after his retirement. He now has many more hours to paint and has decided to enter the professional art arena. He recently entered his second juried show, “The Senior Artists Showcase,” at the Lakewood Arts Center, and once again, two of his watercolors were accepted for exhibition, this time at the South Union Gallery.

Town of Frisco council meeting days to change in June

FRISCO – Frisco Town Council members have decided to move the dates of the council meetings from the first and third Tuesdays of the month to the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. Because of a desire to have Town Attorney Pat Tisdale attend each meeting, the meeting days are changing. The change will start with the June 10 meeting, which is the second Tuesday of June.

According to Town Manager Alan Briley, moving the meeting days will provide more consistency in service and will reduce the fees charged by the town attorney. With the change in days, Tisdale will be able to attend both meetings of the month instead of sending another attorney from her firm and then spending extra time briefing and debriefing. Tisdale is also the attorney for Lafayette, whose council meets on the third Tuesday of each month.

Frisco Town Council meetings will still be held at 7 p.m. with a worksession that will usually start at 2 p.m. preceding each meeting.
