Worlds Suspended in Reality:
Patricia Bramsen, Caroline Douglas, & Frank Sampson
October 4 – January 20, 2019
Guest curated by Rebecca DiDomenico, BMoCA’s Fall 2018 exhibition, Worlds Suspended in Reality, includes three revelatory exhibitions by artists Caroline Douglas, Frank Sampson, and Patricia Bramsen,who all channel an unseen reality that nevertheless surrounds us, and who work to safeguard those elements within their art.
Douglas’ Caravan of Dreams: A Healer’s Path uses dreamlike imagery to create a singular environment in which to capture over one hundred clay creatures being transported or transporting wheeled vehicles on a long journey.
Featured in Sampson’s exhibition are highlights of lesser known works across his ninety-year career, including his Fossil Series of paintings depicting people tumbling and pole vaulting through space, as well as his surreal paintings of animals and people in atypical, but poignant relationships to each other.
Bramsen’s quirky portraits are exhibited in a domestic environment similar to a living room setting, where the surreal objects that frequently appear in her paintings are shown as sculptural elements to enhance and embody a powerful gender identity that is ahead of her time.

Charity Handwork - Tuesdays at 1:00pm
at the Longmont Yarn Shoppe
What better joy than to make for others? What better joy than to make for others in need? LYS began with a Charity Handwork mission in 2012 - to make 1000 warm things for the homeless in Boulder County. We exceeded that goal and the mission of Charity Handwork continues today......
Project patterns and yarn for those who would like to contribute will be available during Tuesday Handwork hours (1 - 3 pm), or you can pick up anytime to take home and bring back to LYS to be distributed. Please provide your own needles and hooks. Currently we are making Snuggles Pads for the Longmont Humane Society, Layettes, Baby and Toddler items for Clinica Campesina, and always we can provide you with yarn to make warm things for the homeless.
