Art show, blues jams scheduled

       Old Colorado City landscape artist Laura Reilly will hold a “Winter Magic” show, beginning with an opening reception at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 5 at her gallery at 2616 W Colorado Ave #4.
       According to a press release, Reilly “will unveil a new series of original oil landscape paintings of Colorado's glowing winter days and glittering moonlit nights. A 15-year retrospective of Laura's work will also be shown.”

       Sherry Hall, who started su Casa (a petsitting business) on the Westside in October, recently received a certificate of membership from Pet Sitters International. The phone is 475-8386.
       The Bottle Stop, formerly at 1602 W. Colorado Ave., has temporarily closed while owner Trent Gary seeks a new location. He said he is looking on the avenue, possibly in Old Colorado City. He had operated the business at its old location for about 14 months. The untimely need for relocation resulted from a lease issue, according to Gary. He thanked his customers for their support.
