The Local Community for Art Admirists
Auric Gallery is here to create and maintain a dynamic, independent forum providing a venue for established and up-and-coming local artists. The Gallery strives to fulfill the need for personal growth, communication and a sense of community among artists and viewers.
Gundega Stevens has always had a love for the arts. Growing up in a house where the walls were covered from floor to ceiling "salon-style" with artwork it seemed fitting to study more about it in college. Graduating from CU Boulder with a BA in Art History she then moved to Milwaukee where she earned her Masters in Art History at UWM. While studying there she began working at the Milwaukee Art Museum as an Assistant Curator in Contemporary Art. But her dream was to eventually have her own art gallery and she moved back home to Colorado.
That dream became reality when she opened G44 Gallery in September 2012, a space that featured local and regional artists and artisans with an emphasis on abstract contemporary and contemporary realism work.
Gundega has curated hundreds of shows locally and nationally. She has served as a juror on countless exhibits in Colorado Springs and strives to bring local and regional artists to the forefront of the national art scene.
As a seasoned Colorado Springs resident, photographer, and passionate advocate for the arts, Abigail founded Kreuser Gallery in 2003. What began as a venture specializing in capturing the beauty of children, maternity, weddings, and fine art photography, has now blossomed into a physical gallery located in the heart of Downtown Colorado Springs.
With a mission to provide a dynamic platform for both established and emerging local artists, Abby's gallery has become a safe haven for artistic expression, fostering personal growth and community among artists and viewers alike. With a wealth of experience and a commitment to promoting the arts, Abby embodies the essence of creativity, passion, and community.
