Whiskey and Art

After 44 years in the restaurant industry, I have settled into the twilight of my career peddling “Whiskey n’ Art” in beautiful Telluride, Colorado. Though this lil gem of a spot offers a full bar of spirits, wine and local beer, our famous Wood Smoked Old Fashioned reigns supreme, and sooo compliments the amazing stories written within each individual painting of our sole source of fine art … the Coyote Series by artist Markus Pierson. I say belly up … and ENJOY!

You`ve been called upon … THE CALLING by Coyote Series Markus Pierson.

THE CALLING

TIME, like a butterfly built by a watchmaker, is both predictable and fickle all at once. some of us can’t quite figure this riddle out, never seeming to
UNDERSTAND which moments to cherish and which to rush through, while others simply accept their unanswered questions and choose to treat each moment, good or bad, as being meaningful and precious. For those of us who choose this path, may we see ourselves as called to a higher purpose as the passionate GUARDIANS of meaningful things. and may we understand that the riddle of time will only be solved in the afterlife, where our departed LOVED ONES cry tears of BOTH JOY AND SORROW as they marvel at our blessed, heaven-sent, purposeful, confusion.

The Cast

Coyote Series Artis Markus Pierson and TELLURADO owner Mitch Schwenke throwing up the signature “Viceroy Victory” pose celebrating a beauty of a day while playing Creekside in the northern Maine backyard of Markus Pierson. TELLURADO STUDIO, a cozy refuge in its 3rd year, offers up exclusively the Fine Art of the “Coyote Series”, cool logoed outdoor provisions and excellent Craft Cocktails. A place to hideout, hang your hat and throwback one of our famous Oakwood Smoked “Old Fashioned” while taking in the tales of reckless footloose souls, crazy romance and philosophy by Coyote Series Artist Markus Pierson.

Markus Pierson

The Artist

The Coyote Series, inspired by the Joni Mitchell song Coyote, was created by Michigan native Markus Pierson in 1986. Markus is much more than just the creator; after 36 years he has become the muse and inspiration for thousands of dreamers, adventurers and romancers. And not necessarily in that order.

After a near-fatal bout with Crohn’s Disease, Markus dove in hard, painting billboards by day for a living and working into the night on his “Coyotes.” To the wall above his desk he taped these words, “No one works this hard and this smart – and has it come to nothing.” Within a year, he walked out of Artexpo in NYC with commitments from 110 art galleries across the country.

Today you could find Markus spending time with his wife Sher and their 4 dogs at the “Optimism Farm” in Maine. Painting, writing or a brisk workout on his motocross track, his days are happy and his “Cup of Gratitude” full.

Mitch Schwenke

The Proprietor

Owner, operator, bartender, cook and chief bottle washer, Mitch, the Viceroy of all the worlds dreamers, had been dreaming of setting up shop in this gorgeous ol’ mining town for several years. Those dreams and the bountiful journey to get here became reality in the fall of 2020. Chances are you’ll catch him in shorts, a ballcap and his Harley parked out front but don’t let that fool you. As a four-decade restaurateur by trade, he has just enough experience to be dangerous and pull this off … or pull the wool over your eyes. He also owns the Blue Coyote Supper Club in Ft. Myers, Fl. going on 21 years.

Alex Avedikian

The Utility Player

What happens when you toss 3 parts designer, one part shady bartender and a smidgeon of bathroom attendant in a gunny sack? Well that would be Alex … aka “Alvin.” When he’s not humping at his Graphic Design and Web firm in Minneapolis or shoeing some old horse on his farm in southern Minnesota, ya might find him torching a “Smokey” at the bar, tightening up the next piece of “Swag” or cursing the aptly named POS system at the studio. He doesn’t grace us with his presence nearly enough, but when he does you have two choices … either run for the hills or tighten up your laces for the wild ride. Let it go Baby!

Sarah and Kyle

Kyle and Sarah

Mixologists and Host Extraordinaires

Kyle and Sarah, hailing from complete opposite corners of the Universe, vastly different brain washings and a tad bit o’ contrast in lifetime throwdowns, offer up watered-down libations, a few white lies and plenty of verbal abuse. Naaah, just jivin! A pair of the towns best… twisting up country club pours, sneaky inside Telluride knowledge and smiles from ear to ear. Are ya here yet?
