10 Years: The Posters of Studio & 2010-2019 - Book
I've long been threatening to do this, and now I've gone and done it. I've made a book documenting the first 10 years of posters at Studio & Gallery. 112 posters in all. I've also asked some of my friends and fellow artists close to the cause to share their thoughts on the multi-headed beast that is Studio &.
A colorful look back at a decade of Art, Ideas, and progress and all the miscellany that has surrounded it. You can now hold in your hands the entire collection of posters from the first 10 years of Studio &.
Featuring essays from: Ted Holteen, Dan Groth, Elizabeth Kinahan, Shay M. Lopez, David Holub, Patty Templeton, Donny Phillips, Crystal Hartman, Ron Fundingsland
Take a trip down memory lane, the only that is missing is the cheap wine and the guy in the white shoes.
The first edition of this book is limited, so dawdling is not encouraged.

From the back cover:
At 1027 Main Avenue in Durango, Colorado, there exists a place with dirty floors and a bathroom you just have to see for yourself. Studio & might seem like simply an art gallery. However, the walls of this building hold something more than art – a decade’s worth of gatherings of open-minded people coming together in the name of art, ideas, and progress. This little clubhouse has been the backdrop for a pretty amazing story. One of creative boundary-pushing, thought provoking expression, and more than one person in a gorilla suit.
In its first ten years, Studio & has opened its doors for over a hundred events – art shows, concerts, markets, exhibitions, performances. The posters promoting those events – almost exclusively the work of Studio & founder Tim Kapustka – show the growth, the evolution, and the story of Studio &. That story is recounted in the pages of this book, both in a retrospective of the visual artifacts and in the recollections of a few individuals who have been driving forces behind the whole thing. And for those who fancy an ampersand, well, they’re gonna like this book for a whole different reason.
