The Lone Tree Arts Center, 10075 Commons St., announces the opening of Running Dialogue Thursday through Jan. 5. An opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Saturday.
The exhibit showcases the work of five Colorado artists who work in five different mediums, including:
- Ken Elliott – oil and pastel – Elliott is a landscape artist with a keen focus on color and composition. His works are direct, showing the lessons of the impressionist as well as modern schools.
- Victoria Eubanks – encaustic – Eubanks brings 30 years of graphic sensibility and design experience to her studio. Her work pulls from the common place, with objects or themes richly portrayed in the translucency of wax. Through layers of color, imagery and texture, she enables the mundane to become exotic
- Janice McDonald – collage – McDonald creates collages with fragments of paper and recycled imagery collected from her daily life and wanderings. She is especially intrigued with the often-overlooked backgrounds, colors, textures, shapes, and negative spaces in everyday printed materials.
- Carol Ann Waugh – fiber – Waugh is an award-winning mixed media fiber artist. Her work explores unexpected connections and juxtapositions that can lead to new ideas and artistic expressions.
- Mary Williams – wood sculpture – By combining striking colors and bold imagery, Williams creates playful sculptures and wall installations that reach out to all ages. Her inspiration comes from patterns in nature that she carves as shapes, lines, and textures to create abstract imagery.
The artists exhibiting in Running Dialogue have shown their work together for the past five years at Denver area venues including the Madden Museum, aBuzz Gallery and Denver International Airport.
Running Dialogue can be viewed during LTAC open box office hours: weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and two hours before live performances. Performances include theatrical, musical and educational productions for all ages throughout the year.
