The Open Shutter Gallery, located at 735 Main Avenue in Durango, Colorado, opened for business on August 31, 2001. The Gallery exhibits both color and black and white fine art photography. Photography books and cards are also available.

We are proud to be 100% solar powered!

The Open Shutter Gallery is the creation of Margy Dudley, a Durango resident and a photographer herself. Her mission for the Gallery is to exhibit fine quality works by both international and local photographers. Pointing out that photography is an important medium through which many issues may be powerfully addressed, Dudley will include among her exhibits works that address humanitarian and conservation issues. See the Past Shows pages for examples. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the photographs will be donated by the gallery to support various important causes. She sums up her own passion for photography, saying "the magic of photography is that it captures a moment in time that exists for only a moment and then it's gone."

In addition to creating a forum within the Durango community dedicated exclusively to fine photography, the Gallery is also a resource for amateur and professional photographers in the Four Corners area. International travel advetures as well as evening workshops, are available through the Gallery, click the Workshops link above to browse the current offerings of Open Shutter Workshops. Slide shows in conjunction with Gallery exhibits will occur throughout the year.
