About the 2017 Boulder Star Card

The 2017 Boulder Star Card artwork was created by Gayle Crites. Crites received her BA from Colorado State University where she concentrated in printmaking. During her formative years, Crites worked as a designer and illustrator, and then developed a significant following for her work in oil as well as contemporary mixed media. She has been featured nationally in books, museums and galleries, as well as in international exhibitions. Gayle also provided the design for the first Boulder Star Holiday Card and was invited to return with the design for this year’s card for the 70th Anniversary of the Boulder Star. For more information about Gayle and her work please visit:
