L I Z D U R F E E - Owner
When the gold-flowered chamisa (also known as Rabbit Brush) were blooming throughout Boulder County in the autumn of 2010, Rabbit Brush Gallery opened its' doors in Hygiene, Colorado. Co-founders Liz Durfee and Sharon Young had previously worked together many years earlier at McLaren Markowitz Gallery in Boulder. Sharon moved on in 2013; Liz continues to run the gallery which is now located in the lovely little town of Lyons as of April 2022. The gallery features the work of more than a dozen painters, printmakers, potters, several jewelry artists and a unique selection of greeting cards for all occasions. The work of fair trade artists from around the world fill out our selections. Cynthia Russell joined the gallery in 2013 as a part-time sales associate, and continues to be Liz's right-hand helper and excellent-organizer.
Over the years the number of artists we represent has grown rapidly, as has the number of loyal customers and friends who value our mission of creating a well-curated collection of handmade arts and crafts.
Please stop by and enjoy exploring the gallery's beautiful, humorous, and unique pieces created by our artists!
