At this very moment, in 1903, our building was home to the Las Animas Electric Company. It operated day and night while providing power to a rising city. 118 years later - We kept that same energy.
Artistically speaking, of course. ⚡️
Yerika Salas-Dominguez | Digital Artist
As a student studying the field of Graphic Design for the past few years, Yerika discovered how to properly express the message that others have in mind as it relates to their brand. She accomplishes this by using a mixture of digital and traditional techniques. Most passionate about the music industry, Yerika utilizes what she’s learned and reapplies it in ways that best suite her artistic beliefs and her client’s wishes - that begins with a firm understanding of what her client’s goal is in the first place. “This is what helps me be consistent and in line with my audience’s views.”, states Ms. Salas-Dominguez. “My primary goal is to make sure the message that the consumer wants comes across clearly to everyone in a way that is appealing and unique but most of all memorable.”
Creamery. Slaughterhouse. Honey Plant.
We were a few things before becoming Three Twenty Gallery. During World War 2, the Moorhead Fairmont was contracted by the government to make food products including milk, poultry, and dried eggs. In 1943, the location was rewarded an Army-Navy "E" Award for its outstanding contribution. This was a moment of great pride for the community as the government recognized the work of Moorhead, as such, there was a celebration for the Fairmont.Shortly after, the Fairmont Creamery Company changed their name to "Fairmont Foods" to reflect the newly broadened inventory.
Brother Maars | La Junta Tribune News.
Brother Maars hails from New York and had always wanted an excuse to come to Colorado. He has done similar work on both coasts, but Colorado called to him as a great place to slow down and experience something new. “That great interruption is an ever-occurring thing in New York” he said. “Here, it happens, but it’s so different and far less often.” While in residence at the Three Twenty Gallery, Brother Maars created three full pieces and has another two in progress.

Same Area. New Vibes.
Social and racial injustices happen everyday. To eradicate this behavior our aim should be to educate one another of our cultural differences through positive and effective communication - instead of holding on to past ideology and idiotic thinking that kept us all bound. The wrongs of the past can only be repaired by public acknowledgement and sincere steps towards a better future. We're here, along with the city of Las Animas, to show the world a better way.
Artist sets up shop in Las Animas
"With melodramatic imagery inspired by the Pop Art era of the 60's, the teary-eyed woman depicted by local artist STACE is symbolic of the Native Americans displaced throughout history from the Trail of Tears to the Santa Fe Trail. The 25 foot hand painted woman looks towards the eastern rising sun to symbolize hope" - Dave Armstrong (Writer/Bent County Democrat).
Gallery Membership. Exclusive access with purchasing power.
Our mission has always been to preserve both the art and the artists while facilitating the public experience. We’re excited to extend our loyalty to the city of Las Animas and the surrounding areas. The Gallery at 320 Fifth Street will serve as a pillar in the community; leading in global art education, music development, and trusted in the overall preservation of the artistic culture - for without the community, no art would survive. For your consideration, we thank you.
Borneo Thinking Man
The Thinker (French: Le Penseur) is a bronze sculpture by Auguste Rodin, usually placed on a stone pedestal. The work shows a nude male figure of heroic size sitting on a rock with his chin resting on one hand as though deep in thought, often used as an image to represent philosophy. There are about 28 full-sized castings, in which the figure is about 186 cm high, though not all were made during Rodin's lifetime and under his supervision. There are various other versions, several in plaster, and studies and posthumous castings exist in a range of sizes.
