Amid a relaxed indoor-outdoor setting that perfectly suited the Wyly’s eclectic style, artists and patrons from around the Roaring Fork Valley celebrated a strong sense of creative kinship while enjoying passed hors d’oeuvres and lemongrass sage margaritas donated by Woody Creek Distillers. Visionary artist and Hollywood set designer Dick Carter, who also co-founded the Aspen Art Museum, was honored with the center’s inaugural Creative Force Award. –Photos by Cathy Miller
