2018 Winter Carnival Poster

We are so excited to announce that local Steamboat artist Michelle Ideus has created an amazing piece to be featured as the 2018 Winter Carnival Commemorative Poster art work! Her style is signature, whimsical, vibrant and unmistakable. The original framed art will be auctioned at the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club Foundation’s Stars at Night Gala on Dec. 29, along with the first three signed, numbered and framed limited edition giclee prints on silent auction. 22 other limited edition, signed, numbered and framed prints are available for purchase by contacting [email protected], and the posters will be available for sale at multiple locations around town beginning in 2018, with 100% of the proceeds from the poster program going to the SSWSC.


Local artist Michelle Ideus will create an original work of her whimsical collage art for the 2018 Steamboat Winter Carnival commemorative poster, benefiting the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.

The Steamboat artist, who has been selected to create the illustration for this year’s esteemed Winter Carnival poster, punctuates most of what she says with an infectious laugh. That light-heartedness and refusal to take herself too seriously also comes through in her whimsical, colorful work.

Ideus has worked in many mediums, from water color and graphite drawing to painting in oil and acrylic. And then one day, she began to throw them all together into collage pieces that have become the hallmark of her current portfolio. Inspired by Steamboat’s landscape and ranching culture, she’ll start with a photograph and then create a sketch, then a painting, and then she’ll layer all different kinds of mediums on top of that, from magazine scraps and tissue paper to glitter

Selected by Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty to create the art for the 2018 Steamboat Winter Carnival commemorative poster, she’s up for the challenge, and will shake off whatever pressure she feels to make art for such an important event, with a signature giggle.

Steamboat Winter Carnival Poster Where are you from, and how did you end up in Steamboat?


I grew up in La Grange, Illinois. I went on a camping trip with my big sister to Colorado when I was in high school and the rest was history. I studied art at Colorado State University and met my future husband Dean. We moved up to Dillon after we graduated and worked for Keystone and A-Basin for five years. After a stint wind surfing in the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon we ultimately moved to Steamboat. That was 15 years ago.

 

Tell us about your background in art. You work in so many different mediums. Has that always been the case or has it evolved over time?


After completing my Bachelor of Fine Arts from CSU, my art has evolved over time. I’ve always been into water colors, print making, drawing, and oil painting. When I moved to Steamboat, I decided to start working with acrylics because I wanted to be able to work anywhere in my house and not have the smell and cleanup required with oil paint.  That’s when I started mixing.

What is your process? Where do you find your inspiration?


I started taking pictures of horses, which is something I hadn’t done before. I was definitely feeling like I’d done a million still-life paintings, so I was ready to try something new.  I did these mini collages of horses on Masonite to see if people would like them. They did, so that shot me off into a new direction, painting with acrylics and doing collages on canvas and Masonite. Steamboat has this whole western feel, and I knew I wasn’t a realist or a western painter, but I wanted to build off learning from other people’s stories. I started taking pictures of people’s horses and interviewing the owners. The more I could learn, the better off I was; it just made it very personal. I’m not a horse person, but that’s part of what makes these animals so intriguing to me.Winter Carnival Artist

 

 

 

 

 

What are some of your collaging techniques?


I start with a photograph and then do a sketch on canvas or Masonite. Then I’ll create a painting with acrylic and then build a collage over that using all kinds of scraps from magazines, newspaper, homemade paper, or whatever I might find. I use a special kind of varnish that’s not only a finish, but also an adhesive. I can paint and then I can flip-flop around with gluing pieces of paper and then painting over it again. Sometimes I can lay a bunch of stuff down, and sometimes I’ll be panting and collaging and back and forth. The varnish is my buddy; it dries clear and slightly glossy. I like to integrate it a bunch. Sometimes I’ll come across something and add it in later. I never know where the collage is going bring me and that’s always the fun part.

What is your plan for the Winter Carnival poster? What does it mean to you become part of Steamboat iconography?


It’s such a big deal in Steamboat. My 10-year-old son is in Winter Sports Club and I’ve been able to experience the whole event as a mom so I really know what this is all about. I have a very good friend, George Fargo, who is a local professional photographer and artist. It was important to me to begin with a strong image, so he and I collaborated on a photo for the painting. We kind of merged two different photos that I loved. I knew I wanted a certain feel, to be able to combine those more traditional images with something new. I have done a few posters in the past but this one is such a big deal! I am really proud of how it turned out, and can’t wait to share it with Steamboat. It’s a huge honor and I hope people love it.

One-Year Change in Active Listings All Properties

Residential real estate activity in zip codes 80487, 81639 and 80467, comprised of single-family properties, townhomes and condominiums. Percent changes are calculated using rounded figures.

  • New Listings were down 20.4 percent for single family homes and 19.0 percent for townhouse-condo properties.
  • Pending Sales decreased 22.2 percent for single family homes and 8.8 percent for townhouse-condo properties.
  • The Median Sales Price was up 5.6 percent to $596,000 for single family homes and 21.7 percent to $383,500 for townhouse-condo properties.
  • Days on Market increased 10.3 percent for single family homes but decreased 20.1 percent for
    condo properties.

The prevailing trends lasted through summer. This was expected, since there have not been any major changes in the economy that would affect housing.
Factors such as wage growth, unemployment and mortgage rates have all been stable. Every locality has its unique challenges, but the whole of residential real estate is in good shape. Recent manufacturing data is showing demand for housing construction materials and supplies, which may help lift the ongoing low inventory situation in 2018.

Steamboat Springs, CO 80487
Single-Family Homes

This week the median list price for Steamboat Springs, CO 80487 is $799,000 with the market action index hovering around 24. This is about the same as last month's market action index of 24. Inventory has held steady at or around 244.

Market Action Index

The Market Action Index answers the question "How's the Market?" by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory. Index above 30 implies Seller's Market conditions. Below 30, conditions favor the buyer.

Slight Buyer's Advantage

Inventory levels have been relatively consistent relative to sales. Despite the fact that there is a relatively high amount of available inventory, this Buyer's market is still seeing prices move higher. Given inventory levels, these price conditions are relatively fragile. If the market cools off further, the price trend is likely to reverse.

Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty teams with United Way on school supplies

 

 

Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to have recently partnered with the Routt County United Way, in their annual School Supplies Drive to benefit needy families in Steamboat Springs and the Northwest Colorado region. This program highlights the power of collective giving, with each Steamboat SIR agent donating to the program to make a significant difference in the lives of children in our community. With donations collected from its brokers, as well as a contribution from the company, Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty was able to fulfill every single item on the School Supplies Drive wish list, totaling over 500 items! The items will be stuffed into backpacks and distributed to needy families in the area so that their children will be fully prepared with all of the essentials needed to start the school year.

SSIR give School Supplies to the United Way

SSIR give School Supplies to the United Way

 

According to Kate Nowak, Executive Director of Routt County United Way, “This year we had more families who requested help with providing back-to-school supplies for their children than ever before. Honestly, we were a little nervous about whether or not we were going to be able to fulfill all of the need. Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty’s donation of literally hundreds and hundreds of supplies for these families allowed us to accomplish our goal of meeting the needs of these families in our community, and we couldn’t be more grateful. It is this type of generosity that makes Steamboat Springs and Routt County such a special place. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty on this project and others in the future, to improve the lives of people in and around Steamboat.”

The School Supplies Drive is the latest endeavor in Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty’s community advocacy program, through which SSIR strives to identify needs within the community and to pool its resources (both financial and physical) to make a difference to people who need help in the area, particularly children and families. In this vein, SSIR also recently announced the formation of the Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty Community Fund, in partnership with the Yampa Valley Community Foundation. The fund was established in order to support Yampa Valley and Steamboat Springs non-profit organizations through a collective funding and semi-annual granting process. As the #1 real estate firm in Steamboat Springs, Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty agents, owners and staff collectively participate in the fund, aiming to make a significant and meaningful impact in our community.

From The Steamboat Today

SSIR give School Supplies to the United WayFor the second year, the Women United group of Routt County United Way is hosting its school supply drive, and in 2017, the effort is receiving a significant boost from Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty, which is donating the majority of the supplies for the event with donations coming from the company as well as each of its brokers to support families in need across Northwest Colorado.

Sotheby’s reports it was able to fulfill every single item on the school supplies drive wish list, totaling over 500 items. The school supplies will be stuffed into backpacks and distributed to low-income families in the Routt County area so that children will be fully prepared with all of the essentials needed to start the school year.

And the real estate brokers at Sotheby’s will also contribute their labor to the cause.

“This year, we had more families who requested help with providing back-to-school supplies for their children than ever before,” Routt County United Way Executive Director Kate Nowak said. “Honestly, we were a little nervous about whether or not we were going to be able to fulfill all of the need. Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty’s donation of literally hundreds and hundreds of supplies for these families allowed us to accomplish our goal of meeting the needs of these families in our community, and we couldn’t be more grateful.” 

The school supplies drive is the latest endeavor in Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty’s community advocacy program, through which the local company identifies needs within the community and pools its resources to make a difference for people who need help, particularly children and families.

In this vein, SSIR also recently announced the formation of the Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty Community Fund, in partnership with the Yampa Valley Community Foundation.
