The Association encourages student artists and offers scholarships to deserving seniors in Ouray and Ridgway schools.

The Ouray County Arts Association was initiated in 1960 as the brainchild of Joyce Jorgensen, former owner and Editor of the Ouray County Plaindealer. Joyce, being an artist herself, thought there should be a local show for local artists. Others agreed. The Artists’ Alpine Holiday began that year, and the rest is history.

The Association has presented a judged art show, the Artists’ Alpine Holiday, each year since that time. The show is open to any artist’s work, and over the years it has attracted artists from many states, but most of those contributing are from Colorado and surrounding states. It is one of the oldest juried art shows in Colorado and runs for nine days each August.
