SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts continues “3 PHOTOGRAPHERS” through Saturday, May 31, featuring Multidimensional Compositions by Linda Alterwitz; Emulsion Disorders by Gary Engle; and Non-Objective Photography by Mark Gottlieb.

This three-person show is free and open to the public.

From the nearly 300 images that were submitted in 2009 to SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts for consideration in “The Contemporary Photograph, A National Juried Exhibition,” 75 were chosen from 33 artists and photographers.

At the conclusion of this exhibition, juror and professional artist D. Michael Coffee selected three artists for inclusion in a future three-person exhibition at SHY RABBIT.

“3 PHOTOGRAPHERS” is the culmination of this process, showcasing an expanded body of work by the three artists who were selected by Coffee, based on their non-conventional approach to the photographic process and/or their desire to create at the threshold.

A wide array of beautifully-hued abstract paintings by Karl Isberg are also featured in SHY RABBIT’s Print Studio & Gallery, shown along with finely crafted functional and sculptural ceramic works by D. Michael Coffee.

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. 

The 4,000 square-foot arts facility houses a fine art gallery and ceramic studio, two mixed-media workshops and rotating exhibition spaces. SHY RABBIT is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, and evenings by appointment.

SHY RABBIT presents four to six exhibitions annually, showcasing the finest in contemporary art by emerging, mid-career and nationally recognized artists from throughout the country.

SHY RABBIT’s 2010 exhibition schedule continues with: “Paper & Clay 3,” June 19-Aug. 8 ; “SHY RABBIT Print National 2.” Sept. 4-Oct. 31, juror Yuji Hiratsuka; and “To Be Announced,” Dec. 4,-Jan. 16
