Our goal is to continue Mr. Schmid's legacy with a LIVE ART AUCTION and Mountain Festival under the big top tent in Rist Canyon each Labor Day weekend. Each year, this event benefits the Rist Canyon Volunteer Firefighters in Bellvue, Colorado. www.rcvfd.org
Thanks goes to all who participated, set up this event, sold books, crafts, and volunteered their time and talents, especially the fine artists who willingly gave of themselves and their craft to make last year's event highly successful!
Thanks to Richard Schmid, an internationally known artist, the Rist Canyon Volunteer Fire Department has been benefitting for close to 20 years from his dedication to the arts and providing an event and venue that assists in fundraising for their department. They receive NO government funding and rely each year on the generous support of artists, art connoisseurs and the community.
Let's Help Those Who Have Helped Us!
