Annual Masks Exhibition

Museum of Art

April 23  |  12:00 – 5:00 pm

The annual Masks exhibition is a crowd favorite that over the years has raised more than $1.8 million dollars to support the museum’s mission. During that time, Masks artists, most of whom live in Northern Colorado, have designed and donated more than 3,000 masks. Each year brings new perspectives as the unadorned ceramic forms leave the museum and return as a creative collection of unique masks. Professional artists, whose creativity is their economic mainstay, and recreational artists, who respond to their need to express their creativeness with ingenious styles and materials all create over 220 Masks to support the museum and its programming. Online auction bidding will open April 1 – May 6.

Slopes, Shapes, and Landscapes

Lincoln Center

April 23  |  12:00 – 6:00 pm

Exhibiting Artists:
Shannon Conley
Vicki Conley
Topher Straus
Alicia Thompson

Slopes, Shapes, and Landscapes is a group show focusing on the use of line and pattern in the landscape. Shannon Conley, Vicki Conley, Topher Straus, and Alicia Thompson each interpret the land in their own way and medium. With dye sublimation on aluminum, fiber art, and painting, these artists reinvent their surrounding landscapes. From the sharp lines of a mountain piercing the horizon, to the steady flow of a babbling brook, these artists have truly imitated life through their art.

In these works, there is a strong sense of place, and of home. While not all the artists currently reside in Colorado, they do have connections to and admiration for the land here. The works exhibited contain divergent styles but common inspirations and themes and are a joyous expression of the beauty and emotion they find in exploring the mountain west.

inner Dialogue Exhibition

Art Lab

April 28  |  6:00 – 9:00 pm

Inner Dialogue is a collection of tableaux collages meant to speak to the different ways we view ourselves and the way we all speak to ourselves in our head. For Bailey, there are 4 distinct parts of herself that are in constant conflict: The truest form of herself. This is the her that fights against the other parts of herself. The main consciousness. A people pleaser Perfectionism Depression All four of these parts are played by Bailey in all her pieces. She photographs them all separately and then collages them together in photoshop to create photographic narratives. The personification of these aspects of herself has helped her in many ways. It’s helped these conversations become easier for her to have and easier to win. The artist’s hope is for other people will relate to and see themselves in this work. Maybe these pieces will help other people the way they’ve helped her. At the very least, she hopes they will make others feel less alone in their inner conflicts.
