We are fortunate to have Mike McClung be our juror for this years show. Mike, together with his partner Warren Campbell, owns Michael Warren Contemporary in Denver Colorado. Having worked in both business and in creative industries for the last 30 years, the gallery has been the perfect blend of his professional experience.

Of Chaos and Order
November 6- December 23
Reception: Saturday, November 6th, 6-8pm
Of Chaos and Order Art Collective (OCAO) was launched in 2019 by Richard Rodriguez, Elizabeth Rouland, Dan Oakleaf, Sascha Ripps, and Kevin Weckbach. In their debut exhibition, the group grapples with Lessons from Chaos. In a show initially planned to explore the visual idea of ‘Equalization’ - working with repeated patterns and textures to find order, the group expanded the project to mark their journey through the chaos wrought by COVID and a year in lockdown. Navigating the pandemic collectively via monthly Zoom calls, the five OCAO artists reveal the visual document of their first two years working in community.
