Art of the State, 2019

Arvada Center Galleries (map)

The Arvada Center is hosting its FREE tri-annual Art of the State exhibit, featuring my artwork, Nightscape, at the lower gallery entrance, and fantastic works by many other Colorado artists. Come explore Colorado’s incredible, diverse, local art scene spread over 10,000 square feet.

Being part of this incomparable show has been a big boost for me as an emerging artist. Curators have contacted me, and a gallery curator who saw Nightscape, recognized and approached me at another venue reception. It’s a thrill for me when anonymous people exclaim, “Wow! Ive seen your work!”

Another benefit of being included is that I have widened my circle of artist friends. Events like the show’s reception, and happy hour scavenger hunt, introduced me to many other artists and new followers. Artists like Pam Fortner who’s Phantam I & II were made from hundreds of bands of hand-cut and hand-painted strips paper assembled in pieces, then units. (See samples of AOTS 2019 art below.)

The Arvada Center prides itself on keeping its gallery and museum exhibitions FREE and open to the public seven days a week. It’s located at 6901 Wadsworth Blvd in Arvada, Colorado.

Monday through Friday 9:00a – 6:00p.

Saturdays 10:00a – 5:00p.

Sundays 1:00p – 5:00p.
