Pagosa Springs is fortunate to have attracted such a high caliber artist to our little community. Please come see his work, meet the artist and help out “one of our own” in the process. A portion of the sales will go to Christopher “Smiley” Young, the Alley House Assistant Manager who was injured two weeks ago in an automobile accident. Chris was raised in Pagosa and is the “Smiley” face you see when visiting the Alley House or often times taking his grandmother grocery shopping at City Market.
