GREENSTONE ARTWORKS...

... at the base of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Greenstone Artworks is co-owned by Curt Gillespie, a painter, and his wife, Linnea Laurila, a fiber artist. The new building opened in 2017 to promote the arts in the Wet Mountain Valley and serve as a creative site. The gallery also represents other select Colorado artists. In addition to the gallery, the building houses Curt's studio and a classroom for education in various art mediums. The classroom is available to rent.

What is a Greenstone?

greenstone gemstones

Isle Royale Greenstone, chlorastrolite, is the state gemstone of Michigan and is found in the Keewenaw Peninsula and Isle Royale National Park. It is a green colored stone with fine stellate masses that have a "turtleback" pattern. The Greenstone business name was chosen for its connection to Michigan, Linnea's homeland, and the place Curt & Linnea lived for 20 years.
