The current Lakewood Arts Council’s exhibit, Contemporary Visions, showcases the work of 23 local artists, working in many different mediums. The theme, Contemporary Visions, asked for digital art, cartooning, Anime, but also included photography and traditional art.
Of particular interest was a googly-eye studded amorphous shape called “Eye-Pod” by Katherine Ross, a fun take on the theme.
Marcia Nowak’s clay horses and Anne Marie Butler’s pastel, “Her Rodeo”, were a nice addition,
as was Lynnette Kupferer’s mirrored mosaic and 2nd place prizewinner, “Visions”.
Other prizewinners were, Jane Dorsey’s 1st place “Moon Frost”,
Ellen Masters’ 3rd place, "Winter Lace",
and Andy Dubois’ Merit Award winner, “Trees”.
Susan Gordon, award winning painter, signature member of the Colorado Watercolor Society and member of the National Watercolor Society, was juror for this show. A public reception was held Thursday, January 9 where monetary prizes were handed out to the talented winners.
In addition to the loft show, the Lakewood Arts Council Members’ Gallery hosted an open themed show which attracted many works of various mediums and subjects. Landscapes, florals, animals, still lifes will be on display through the end of the month.
Changes are always bringing in new, exciting artwork and people at the Art Center. A look around the Co-op Gallery shows a number of new members. Joining the group this year are Pat Martin, with her lovely pottery, Laurey Patten, Peggy Schey and Myrlynne Sjogren. Look for their artwork on the walls next time you’re in the gallery.
