Artists: Beau Carey
Please join us Friday, February 21st from 6:00 to 8:00 pm as we celebrate Carey’s recent work. Beau Carey is a landscape and en plein air painter based in New Mexico. The work in Basin and Range look at landscapes as a series of repeated journeys. Each is made of the same mountain ranges repeated and flipped. Carey’s work becomes defined by time; painted with different light, from different angles, some with suns and moons shown in varying states of rising and setting. His work explores and subverts the typical traditions of Western landscape art. Finding new ways to paint landscapes of the West, while recognizing the history of globalism and the new environmental dangers these landscapes face today. Inspired by John McPhee’s geological travel novel by the same name, Carey’s Basin and Range becomes a beautiful journey through time depicting a new perspective on the landscapes of the West.

Artists: Sarah Winkler
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, April 3rd, 6:00 - 8:00 pm Following a mid-Winter trip to the arresting landscape of Iceland to witness the Northern Lights dance above glaciers and volcanos, Winkler brought back to her Colorado studio visions of snow capped fjords under dark winter skies, icebergs calving into the sea, white squalls over geothermal pools and frozen waterfalls. Fierce arctic winds roared across tundras of snow and ice as the artist photographed the Aurora Borealis at midnight. For her solo exhibition, ‘Land of the Glacier’, at Visions West Contemporary in Denver, Winkler explores and translates glacial formations of mountain, ice and snow. Research on the geology and nature of glaciers and ice calving will be translated in a body of work that includes large scale landscape paintings, a wall installation of fragmented icebergs, abstract and conceptual landscape works that reflect her interest in the science and art of nature. Using metaphors of ‘Mother Earth’ to demonstrate the concepts of wholeness and nurtured states in contrast to letting go. The fragmentation process of fullness to dissipation. The cycles of nature reflecting our own emotional states of bonding and releasing the things we know and love into the abyss of unknowable destinies. Winkler reveals poetically in her latest body of work, how the frozen landscape returns to the sea.
