Owner: Patti Filler

Established in 2007, Fare Bella Studio & Gallery is located in Manitou Springs, Colorado. Initially, the gallery featured  local watercolor artists only, as well as art classes.  After two years the gallery, described as An Eclectic Mix of Wonderful, expanded to include home decor, wearable art, Patti’s watercolors, acclaimed fine artists of all mediums, The Tracy Miller Studio Gallery, Edge Custom Framing & an expanded repertoire of art classes taught by Patti as well as feature guest artists.

The owner, Patrice (Patti) Filler, was the child of an artist growing up in Taos, NM. It was almost inevitable that the art world would eventually become a big part of Patti’s life.  As a self educated artist, taking her first art class at Bemis School of Art at The Colorado Springs Fine Art Center in 1997, she brings her years of experience to the public through paintings, commissions, and art classes at the gallery as well as the FAC Bemis.

Patti’s inspiration to students is “If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,” then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”    Vincent van Gogh
