The variety of media I saw used in the various pieces of work on display was quite diverse and interesting. The show was definitely atypical, if compared to the work usually seen in other Old Colorado City art galleries that have been around for a while. There were no works of art on dispaly at this gallery featuring the typically seen Aspen trees, pine trees, or mountain seens, which are usually aimed at tourists visiting the area who do not see these types of sceens on an everyday basis.
The show was a breath of fresh air for the Colorado Springs art enthusiast, such as myself! I saw non-representational three-dimensional sculptural forms made from metal, wood, paint, and/or fiber, hand dyed fiberart pieces, pastel drawings, charcoal drawings, charcoal combined with pastel drawings, colored pencil drawings, pen and ink drawings, paintings, pieces featuring non-traditional, recycled materials, and even a tryptych consisting of framed silk ribbon weavings. There were quite a few portraits, an interior sceen, some intriguing still lifes, and a few photographic pieces, as well.
Every art enthusiast should come see this show before it ends soon. The last show is on Friday, February 4th from 5-8. There will be a reception and the opportunity to speak with each of the 12 artists on display about their artwork, which always makes viewing art more interesting.
