Worlds Suspended in Reality:
Patricia Bramsen, Caroline Douglas, & Frank Sampson
October 4 – January 20, 2019

At BMoCA

Guest curated by Rebecca DiDomenico, BMoCA’s Fall 2018 exhibition, Worlds Suspended in Reality, includes three revelatory exhibitions by artists Caroline DouglasFrank 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.

Lines and Curves

A curated international photography exhibition
December 6, 2018 – January 12, 2019

Studio Arts Boulder board member, Robert Crifasi, is showing his work in this upcoming exhibition.

Lines and curves are some of the most important visual building blocks of both figurative and abstract images. We can observe lines and curves of all possible varieties in photographs; they are everywhere. Putting them in the centre of attention might even sound trivial and not particularly interesting at first. This, however, is a call for notjust anylines and curves. We would like to see lines and curves that take a daring and pronounced initiative in the photograph; lines and curves that capture our attention, lead our eyes, and determine the way we appreciate the photograph. Lines and curves might have significant compositional role but they may also focus our attention on some parts of the image, hence influencing our interpretation. There are countless ways lines and curves might become the central creative aspect in a photograph.

PH21 Gallery is a contemporary exhibition space established in 2012 in Budapest, Hungary.

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.
