Passing Through: Portraits of Emerging Adults
From May 19-July 16 FCMOA will present a provocative exhibition by Kate Gridley on the transition between adolescence and adulthood through life size oil paintings and sound portraits. Passing Through marks moments in which seventeen emerging adults in and around Kate Gridley’s hometown transition to realizing their selves and claim their voices. In addition to the oil portraits, this exhibition will include sound portraits of the subjects talking about where they are in their lives as well as their hopes and fears for the future.
An exceptional collection of “art that is felt with the heart” debuts at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures. A to Z Global Folk Art honors everyday art that embodies and reflects cultural identity.
“We are excited to showcase a variety of eclectic art from local cultures around the world,” said Heidi Cross, Chair of the Museum’s Board of Directors. “Unlike items that are mass produced, folk art conveys the personality of the craftsperson as well as the artist’s culture and community. It is the art of the everyday by people with a creative spirit.”
By definition, folk art uses utilitarian or decorative media to express a culture’s unique and authentic identity. The decorative media may include cloth, wood, paper, clay, and metal. International folk art encompasses art produced by peasants or tradespeople from indigenous cultures. Folk artists traditionally learn their skills and techniques through apprenticeships in community settings.
The remarkable exhibit will feature global folk art from over 20 contributors in Northern Colorado. Examples include wood-carved slingshots from West Africa, a tapa cloth purse from Fiji, a Hindu goddess from Bali made from antique coins and gilded tree bark, and a Mikoshi puppet head from the mountains of western Japan.
“Folk art dates from the earliest days of mankind,” Cross said. “One of the definitions of humanity is the production of art. Folk art fosters the connections between art and people to unite all the cultures of the world.”
