Exhibits

Chasing 360Exploring the Creative Process of Five Colorado Abstract Artists

When: Sept 8- Oct 27
Artist Reception: Saturday, September 8 6-8pm
Artists Talk: Saturday, September 29 1pm. 
Where: Curtis Center for the Arts

The inspiration for this exhibition evolved out of the artists meeting to connect about their work and process. Artist Jessica Magee coined the phrase “Chasing 360” as a metaphor for the feeling an artist has as they work- in a sense, as if they are chasing their tail or running in circles. While some artworks seem to come together effortlessly, often there are a multitude of variations and experimentations before a painting finally comes full circle and feels “finished.” The artists included in “Chasing 360” allow themselves to surrender to this process, making the resolution in their work unpredictable and intriguing. Artists included in this exhibit: Kristen Abbott, Deidre Adams, Molly Berger, Jessica Magee, and Julia Rymer. For more information and images click here
