Renate will also be on hand to discuss the future vision for studio arts in Boulder. Literature will be available with information on Studio Arts Boulder and its pending design for an 11,000+ sq.ft. custom facility, which will be dedicated to community studio art education.

The Sound of Red is an exploration by the artist Detour (a.k.a Thomas Evans) of the associations between sound, color, and form by attempting to create space for simultaneous response. Through the existence of this space, one will start to question and reevaluate one’s impression of how they all work together.

Reconstructing roots to build a bridge to tomorrow. They Still Live, supported with the help of the Paul Hamilton collection, is a journey into the discovery of self.

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.
