The Center for the Arts Evergreen is pleased to present Colorful Colorado, an exhibition celebrating the lands of the Centennial state. Named for the red-colored river flowing through it, Colorado’s landscapes cross all planes: from tall mountains to high plains, rolling foothills to dusty deserts, dense forests of pines and aspens to sparse grasslands, golden sand dunes to winding rivers. Colorful Colorado features works of art inspired by the land and some created from the land This includes traditional works such as paintings, photography, pastels, and illustrations, as well as fused glass works and several wooden bowls created from Aspen trees.
Dennis Rhoades, a Colorado-based landscape painter, juried the exhibition. Rhoades graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute as a Fine Arts Major and works in the plein air tradition in pastels. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions throughout the West and Southwest and belongs in 18 collections. The June 2013 issue of Southwest Art Magazine featured Rhoades as the ‘Artist to Watch’.
Colorful Colorado runs from October 11 to November 7. Center for the Arts Evergreen is open Monday-Friday 10am-5pm and Saturdays 12pm-5pm.
