Don’t miss out on seeing “DISPARATE COLORS” at SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts: Gallery, before it closes after gallery hours on Saturday, Jan. 9.

The SHY RABBIT exhibition space is currently open winter hours 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday through Sunday, and daily by chance.

This popular and very colorful group show features a diverse selection of artwork by eight nationally-recognized and emerging artists from throughout the country.

Visitors are welcome to tour SHY RABBIT’s 4,000 square-foot arts facility year round, and to be introduced to all of the programs that SHY RABBIT offers, including ceramic and printmaking workshops of all levels, and work for sale by ceramic studio members.

This art lover’s destination houses a working ceramic studio and fine art gallery, two mixed media workshops, and two large exhibition spaces.

“DISPARATE COLORS” featured artists are: Juanita Ainsley, mixed media monoprints; Randy Au, ceramics; Debra Blair, paintings and mixed media; D. Michael Coffee, ceramics and monoprints; Denise Coffee, Cozy Head velvet tie-caps; Patrick Shia Crabb, ceramics; Karl Isberg, paintings; and Shaun Martin, mixed media.

This eclectic show demonstrates that when artists work with disparate colors, at random, that the joy is often in seeing things come together unexpectedly.

The works on display by these noteworthy artists are unique in quality and character; yet also share an unexpected commonality, each combining fundamentally different and often incongruous colors and elements into compatibility.

As Patrick Shia Crabb, professor at Santa Ana College in California, stated when describing his working process, “The open psyche is at full throttle.”

A slideshow of “DISPARATE COLORS’ is currently available online at:

SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts: Gallery, Studio and Workshops is located at 333 Bastille Drive, two blocks north of US 160, off of North Pagosa Boulevard.
