Dandelions & Rust – A Colorado Mercantile

Featuring Annalisse Wunderlich and Alexandria Wilson

Annalisse Wunderlich is a macrame & polymer clay artist and owner of The Raw Creative. Annalisse loves creating unique boho pieces that bring other people joy. She is a Colorado based artist who believes in the power of expressing your raw and authentic self. This is where her inspiration for her fun and funky earrings and macrame pieces come from. You can find Annalisse in her little craft room making an array of beautifully handcrafted pieces she cannot wait to share with the world.

My name is Alexandria Wilson. I am a local artist, creator, and collector. I have called Fort Collins home for almost all of my life, and the way I was raised is directly reflected in my art. As a child, I always told fairy tales; I chased my dreams and floated far away from reality. As I grew up and into society, I lost touch with the magical parts that make me who I am. At the beginning of the pandemic, I was in nursing school, getting sober and working all the time. I needed an escape from my everyday life in a healthy way. So I got back to the basics, what used to make me happy. I spent those months exploring myself again, and Lilith’s Daughters’ Altar was born out of the ashes. I focus on my inner child and making creations out of everyday objects that evoke and inspire magic. My dream is that my art will transport you into a different dimension, one where we live simple lives and curate community. My fairy personal and home adornments are one of a kind and created directly from pieces of my childhood dreams. I hope that they can bring a little bit of magic into your life, if not take you away for a moment.

Beauty and the Beast: An Unexpected Journey
Lorri Acott & Adam Schultz (Red Feather, CO)
August 27 – October 17, 2021

Artists Lorri Acott and Adam Schultz have joined forces to create a compelling new exhibition of original sculpture and paintings for the Museum of Art Fort Collins entitled Beauty and the Beast: An Unexpected Journey. This two-person show features their individual works of art, as well as a new series of collaborative sculptures. Celebrating ideas around unexpected relationships, duality, and the power of myth, this reinterpretation of the tale as old as time seeks to inspire a new conversation about what we really define as beautiful, and exactly who the beast may be.

Lorri Acott sculpts long-legged figures and animals that reflect intimate moments in our lives: a feeling, an interaction, a realization, an emotion. Simplified, without the details of faces or clothing, they rely on our innate understanding of human gesture to inform us. Her impressionistic figurative sculptures reside in private and public collections throughout the US and abroad. A favorite of collectors and critics alike, Lorri’s work receives a powerful emotional response wherever it is placed. Her work reaches for the universal in our innermost beings as it explores and examines the question of our existence. A mixture of heart-warming whimsy and a deep understanding of our feelings make Lorri’s work approachable and intimate.

Adam’s body of work ranges from miniature to monumental. It includes his latest collection of bronze sculptures, the Goddess Series, a celebratory expression of ‘delightfully abundant’ figurative nudes.
