The Galaxy Gallery, located at 108 North Main in Lamar, has recently opened to provide a showcase for artists of different styles, media, and visions.  The hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and weekends by appointment.

Vincent Gearhart, one of the gallery curators said, "We are very happy to be able to provide artists of all types in southeast Colorado a location where they can have their artwork available for display to the public and not kept in a closet or storage area someplace."

It has been quite a while since Colorado State University Extension has offered the Master Gardener program in the southeast area. With renewed interest in the program, applications are being accepted for Master Gardner classes which will be conducted in 2019. The host location will be determined by where the majority of the applications are centered. Southeast area extension offices are located in Baca, Bent, Cheyenne, Crowley, Kiowa, Otero, and Prowers counties.
