Robert Gray | President
Robert has lived in the Pikes Peak Region for over 20 years and has become a staple in the art community. His leadership style stems from his prior Engineering experience, as well as from his teaching roles.
Robert brings a fresh eye to photography with a raw intimacy that captures the human spirit. His love of the arts, creativity and adventure led him to photography back in 2008. This was the beginning of his journey to master the art of storytelling. Robert’s dynamic style guides the viewers' imagination to run rampant with their own creativity, while simultaneously reaching them on an emotional level. In addition to the Pikes Peak Arts Council, he serves on the Public Art Commission for the city of Colorado Springs
Mycole Eversole | Interim Treasurer
Although music is an integral part of his story, finance and business acumen brought Mycole Eversole to the Pikes Peak Arts Council. The discipline and commitment that it took to be a 4-time state drumline medalist and part of the Top of the Nation Honor Band has served Mycole well, especially in his entrepreneurial endeavor as a Financial Professional.
Mycole believes that the topic of finances has become one of the most overcomplicated, taboo topics in our society, but it doesn’t have to be! Creating a financial roadmap for a person, family or organization that allows them to make decisions based on their true values rather than money alone is the goal.
Mycole is working toward a Bachelor of Innovation in Finance and Accounting from University of Colorado, Colorado Springs to continue to refine the art and science of managing money and investments.

Sarah is an active member of the arts community and owner of Skye Candle Company in Manitou Springs. In addition, she is also owner of Dwell Reality and brings over 15 years of business experience to the table.
