Last show of the ski season is Tuesday, March 26 from 3-6. Featured artists include Soodi Kick, Tara Novak, Amy Dose, Elke Wells, and Beth Levine.

The Charter at Beaver Creek has a whole new look and feel. From The Charter Steakhouse restaurant featuring panoramic mountain views and an elevated mountain casual menu to the spa and pool area with saltwater hot tubs and a saltwater outdoor pool, the entire property has a new energy about it. But to complete the aesthetics The Charter at Beaver Creek added the works of local artists to adorn the walls of the resort’s largest condominium complex via a partnership with the Vail Valley Art Guild.

Housing the art of local talent didn’t happen overnight. This project started during the Avon Art Celebration in the summer of 2021. The Charter Homeowners Association president, Garrett Pepel, met artist Margo Thomas at the show. That’s where the idea of partnering with the Vail Valley Art Guild to provide local artists with a unique opportunity was propelled into motion.

Through a partnership between the Vail Valley Art Guild and the newly remodeled Charter at Beaver Creek local artists are featured throughout the property, including ‘Bisons in the Snow’ by photographer Allan Finney.

Thomas got a call in the spring of 2023 and became the art curator for the project. Everything fell in place just in time for 2023-24 ski season. Works can be found in the main lobby, lower lobby, restaurant and ceremony lobby. Some works are part of the property’s private collection. Others are for sale and benefit local artists and local nonprofit offerings. Proceeds support the Vail Valley Art Guild’s nonprofit outreach programming and scholarship programs.

“The Charter at Beaver Creek made a considerable donation as part of their private collection acquisition,” Thomas said. “We are especially grateful to The Charter at Beaver Creek homeowners association selection committee for their tireless work in choosing artwork and artists: Garrett Pepel, Lisa Dimoulas, Jane Eisenberg and Mark McDermitt. Additionally, Ryan MacLachlan and Rob Sinclair of East West Hospitality provided leadership to make this opportunity happen.”

The Vail Valley Art Guild has hosted Art Walks each month since December and the last one of the season will be on March 26 between 3-6 p.m. Enjoy complimentary cocktails and appetizers while touring the property and meeting the featured artists. For more information, visit and view the events calendar page.

“The Vail Valley Art Guild members who were selected by The Charter at Beaver Creek’s art committee are thrilled to see their works displayed as part of the property’s renovation,” Thomas said. “Our members benefit from exhibit opportunities such as our gallery shows, local libraries and the annual Vail Valley Fine Art Show at Colorado Mountain College in Edwards. But this opportunity at The Charter is unique because their works are seen by hundreds of The Charter’s guests who visit from all over the world.”
