Welcome to the beginning of another week in the Roaring Fork Valley! This is Week in the Arts, a curated list of upcoming exhibitions and events.



The annual spring sheepdog trials will be held on Monday and Tuesday at Strang Ranch in Carbondale. Top handlers and their border collies from around the country vie for a spot in the national championship. The trials start at 9 a.m. both mornings.

Wednesday, author Tiffany Quay Tyson leads a workshop on "Writing Dialogue That Works" at the Pitkin County Library starting at 5:45 p.m.

BTalks will be at the Temporary on Thursday. BTalks are short conversations with influential community members. This month’s speakers include Katie Hone Wiltgen, AMFS’s Director of Education, and Marlene Manown, the first female Outward Bound instructor. The discussion starts at 5:30 p.m.

Also Thursday, Austin-based bluegrass band Whiskey Shivers plays the Belly Up. Doors open at 9:30 p.m.

Saturday, the documentary "How We Grow" will have two screenings at the Crystal Theatre in Carbondale as a part of Dandelion Days. The movie will be shown at 5 and 7 p.m.

Saturday night is Comedy Night at the Marble Bar and Distillery in Carbondale. Steve Gastineau will headline. Denver’s Channel 9 News called him “One of the Funniest Comedians in Denver.” The laughs start at 8 p.m.

Finally, just a friendly reminder that Mother’s Day is Sunday.  The Aspen Art Museum is hosting a Mother’s Day Brunch with family art activities, a buffet and bottomless mimosas. The event starts at 11:30 a.m.
