Art exhibit to showcase Colorado inspirations

December 4, 2013 by  

This weekend sees the opening of ‘No Place Like Home’; a juried art exhibition that explores how living in Colorado can inspire an artist’s work and how it can take various shapes. On display until Saturday, January 11, some of the works show will no doubt lend themselves nicely to postcard printing and might be a source of inspiration to any print company employees in the area.

The guest juror who made the decision on which pieces would be entered into the exhibition is Cecily Cullen from the Metropolitan State University. The showcase features the work of 30 Colorado artisans and reflects life in various settings, such as the rural plains, the foothills, the mountains, suburban, and urban Colorado. Awards will also be given out on the opening day.

The artists chosen represent a diverse spectrum of work, and examples of what sort of pieces they come up with can be seen on the website. During the open reception, people will have an opportunity to speak with the artists, who will come from all across the state, and learn what inspired them to create their work

The opening reception of the ‘No Place Like Home’ exhibition is free to attend and will be held on Friday, December 6, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Lincoln Center Art Gallery in Fort Collins, Colorado.
