The opening night of any art fair is full of excitement and anticipation, the culmination of many months of planning, work and execution. Aspen Peak took pride in hosting the vernissage for Art Aspen for the ninth year in a row July 26. The Aspen Ice Garden was transformed into a largescale exhibition space for artwork from galleries across the country. Art-loving Aspenites wandered down the halls and into the booths—that is, when they weren’t busy sipping Entourage rosé and taking #selfies with works of contemporary art. One sculpture made of light and mirrors by artist Anthony James went viral on social media. This year, the opening night benefactor was The Art Base, an education and community hub in Basalt. Attendance for the fair was at a record high by an increase of 35%.
