Holly Parker to curate artwork at Ivywild

Posted By on Mon, Dec 10, 2012 at 2:43 PM

Holly Parker, local artist and former director and curator of the Smokebrush Gallery, announced last week that she has taken a new position as resident artist and curator at the Ivywild school project.

Parker's studio and gallery will relocate to the mixed-use brewery/bakery/coffee bar/event center in February, where she will also curate exhibits from local and regional artists. This is exciting news given the amazing work she did at Smokebrush, landing shows from the likes of James Balog, Ron English, Regan Rosburg and others. (Parker left Smokebrush at the start of 2011 to pursue her own artwork.)

In her newsletter, Parker adds that she also hopes to "foster art/design projects that integrate ecology & sustainability."

To start, she's opened a call for artists for "general consideration" for future shows. With a rolling deadline between now and next March, artists may be chosen for solo shows, small group exhibits or larger themed shows. The main criteria are that artists must be from Colorado, have been creating for the past two years at least, and the artwork must be for sale. For more information on that, click here.
