If you've been following my frenzied activity on Facebook and Twitter, you know that the second annual “Chasing Light” exhibition is finally up and running! The opening reception will be this Friday, on December 5th, from 6—9pm, and the art will continue to be on display until Saturday, the 13th.
The show consists of the work of twelve Northern Colorado painters: Jenifer Cline, Larry DeGraff, Ann Dezell, Andrea Gabel, Ken Knox, Victoria Lisi, Margueritte Meier, Scott Ruthven, Will Spear, Linda Temple, Christine M. Torrez, and myself. Amid our varying styles and mediums, our common bond is that we all attempt go on plein air “paint-outs” together at least once a week – wind, rain, or shine:
What sets this show apart is that it's extremely local, in both its artists AND subject matter. Want an original painting of the Armstrong Hotel, the Holiday Twin drive-in theater, Lake Estes, the Poudre River, or the Devil's Backbone? What about irises from a secret garden, or a fox named “Dwight”? It's all there, and more.
In addition to our show, the work of the Rocky Mountain Woodturners will be on display; if you're into finely crafted workmanship, this is also a must-see.
If you don't make it to the big opening reception on First Friday (6 to 9pm), no worries -- the gallery will remain open on Saturday, December 6th from 12-6pm, and then again on Wednesday the 10th through Saturday the 13th, 12-6pm. (Please note: on Sundays, Mondays or Tuesdays, the gallery is NOT open.)
I plan to be there on both sets of Saturdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, doing demos and discussing all things artistic.
Can't wait to see you there!
