Artists need a place to grow… our communities need a place to experience and collect amazing art.
Montrose Center for Arts exists to enrich lives through education, appreciation, and experience of the arts for Montrose and the Western Slope Communities.
Now You Can Experience Montrose as an Arts Destination!
Wait… Really? Montrose is a hub for the visual arts in Colorado?
With your support, we’re making this dream a reality!
Our area’s budding reputation for art is built on the shoulders of local artists and those who appreciate their work. The Montrose Center for Arts provides a wealth of opportunities for artists to showcase their work and connect with appreciative viewers and buyers. We take care of the sales, administrative tasks, and shipping on behalf of all artists who exhibit at MCA.
Anyone in our community is welcome to visit our gallery and find inspiration, purchase unique gifts, and attend enriching events. Together, we’re raising the caliber of art in Montrose and the surrounding region. Come experience the incredible talent that is growing in your own backyard!
Art is a Community Asset. Let’s Take Communal Responsibility.
Without art, we lose a segment of our history and an essential path to the future. And without a place to preserve, celebrate, and share artistic works, our lives are less full. That’s why MCA is so committed to the mission of our community art center. This is our outlet for expanding our horizons, challenging our thinking, and gaining a deeper appreciation of our world.
Art Enriches. Art Inspires. Art Heals. Art Transports. Art is Essential.

Let’s Make Art a Priority in Montrose!
This is your community art center! We are here to provide space to enrich your soul through art appreciation. We also understand that it can be difficult for local artists to gain exposure. That’s why we’ve built an incubator for emerging artists to learn, network, sell and grow. Anyone can collect art or find unique, special gifts by exploring the hidden gems of the Western Slope found at MCA!
