SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts will open “The ART of it ALL”, on Saturday, Nov. 3, with an artists’ reception from 2-6 p.m.
The public is invited to join in this celebration at no charge. Several of the exhibiting artists will be in attendance to meet visitors and to discuss their work.
This groundbreaking, national juried exhibition will continue through Dec. 31.
A call to artists working in all media was published nationwide earlier in the year, resulting in entries from artists residing in 26 U.S. states, as well as Canada, U.K., Taiwan and Lebanon.
Juror D. Michael Coffee carefully selected 98 pieces by 48 artists, representing 18 U.S. states and Canada.
The range of artworks on display will include collage, digital, mixed media, paintings, sculpture, prints, drawing, photography, assemblage, ceramics, fiber and glass, among others.
Artworks are traditional or nontraditional in theme, and run the gamut from folk to fantasy, contemplative to playful, baroque to minimalist. They are constructed of such diverse materials as wood, glass, plaster, plastics, paper, concrete, metals and feathers.
The inclusion and thoughtful blending of fine art, craft and, in some instances, function, is at the core of this expansive exhibition, opening the door to a much wider display of individualized interpretations of various art forms.
SHY RABBIT is open to the public daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at no charge. Visitors are welcome to tour this premier contemporary arts venue at their leisure, taking in all that SHY RABBIT has to offer.
Workshops are offered year-round in ceramics and printmaking, instructed by professional artist and SHY RABBIT creative director D. Michael Coffee.
SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts; Gallery, Studio and Workshops is located at 333 Bastille Drive; two blocks north of U.S. 160, off of North Pagosa Boulevard. The 4,000 square-foot arts facility houses a ceramic studio and fine art gallery, two mixed-media workshops and two large exhibition spaces.
