It has been a magical four years here at Kadoya Gallery sharing the stories of our creatives in Pueblo and beyond. Beginning November 1, 2016 we will take a 14 month sabbatical to build an even more powerful platform for creatives to amplify the narrative of their stories. Our pledge from the outset was to avoid the predictable and now it is time to reach far and wide around the globe to bring a new level of creative genius to the 'Shores of Pueblo'. Throughout 2017 we will present select shows under the label 'kadoya pop' which will focus on pop-up shows lasting no more than three days in abandoned and/or under-utilized spaces throughout Pueblo. Our goal is to explore Pueblo Style. 

We plan to open the next generation of Kadoya Gallery to global audiences in 2018 in a new exhibition and performing arts space. Stay tuned and thanks for your amazing and heartfelt support.

Come Celebrate. This is Pueblo. Stay for a While.

CREATIVE GENIUS | The Artists of Kadoya Gallery | 2012 to 2016
The story of Kadoya Gallery as told through the art of over 100 artists in more than 50 shows.

Creative Genius captures the powerful story of how a handful of individuals came together in December 2012 with a shared vision to create a visual and performing arts platform in Downtown Pueblo on Central Plaza. In just four years, Kadoya Gallery showcased the 'future of the past' in the Historic Tutt Building and empowered creatives to amplify the narrative of their stories to the local community and beyond. This new creative endeavor embraced Pueblo's own unique story where history, culture and  the arts empower discovery each and every day. 

The catalogue is currently in final production and will be available later this fall in time for the holidays. The publication also includes introductions written by some of Pueblo's most creative and successful individuals who are at the forefront of innovation in our creative economy. The book not only serves as an wonderful archive of Kadoya Gallery, but has also been designed to function as a resource guide for connecting with our creatives in Pueblo.

The release of Creative Genius will also coincide with the re-opening of Kadoya Gallery in early 2018. To commemorate the start of the next generation of Kadoya, the opening exhibition will be a retrospective honoring the more than 100 artists who helped build the gallery during its early years.
