Art Gallery Liquor License Changes
As of January 1, 2019 Colorado enacting new liquor laws. In an effort to clarify what it required and inform our valued chamber members about the changes, I’ve been working with the Town of Mancos* to create a FAQ about these changes and requirement for our local galleries, art schools, and businesses that may qualify as such under the Colorado Liquor Code.
Please note: This is as different license from a SPECIAL EVENT liquor license, this license applies to art galleries.
The Colorado Liquor Code defines an “Art Gallery” as an establishment whose primary purpose is the display and sale of works of fine art, and precious or semi-precious metals or stones. “Works of fine art” may include, but is not limited to: painting, sculpture, drawing, mosaic, photography, calligraphy, graphic art, or craft work in materials such as clay, textile, fiber, wood, metal plastic or glass.
If you have any questions or concerns about the clarity of the FAQ, I’d be more than happy to discuss this with you. I cannot give legal advice though. Specific questions about the law should be directed to the Town of Mancos or the State of Colorado.
*Please note, this is Colorado State law. If you are outside of the Town of Mancos, the application process may be different than what is outlined here, but the Colorado state law still applies.
