Paper on paper: The Art of Chine-Colle

at the Arvada Center for the Arts

more information and photos
 

Continues through Sunday, August 20th.

This exhibition features the works of Mark Lunning, Ken Elliott, Jane Braley, Lynn Heitler, and Amy Metier - printmakers who utilize the technique of chine-colle in various ways. Chine-colle is a printmaking process that transfers a print onto both a support surface and thinner, more delicate papers which become a part of the printed image.

Here's a video of one of Ken's exhibiting prints being made


Continuing Exhibit:
Denver International Airport

Look for the installation under the bridges in the main terminal behind the car rental desk signage. We're leaving some of our color and texture behind to liven things up in the airport! You do not have to go through security to see the exhibit. The EXPAND group is comprised of five artists from the Denver metro area: Victoria EubanksJanice McDonaldCarol Ann WaughMary Williams and myself.

American Art Collector  Magazine:
"Elliott's canvases display the strikingly vivid modern hues in which he chooses to render his contemporary landscapes."

Southwest Art Magazine:
 Although his paintings loosely reference photographs and plein-air sketches, they refuse to exist within the confines of already-prescribed images. Rather, they stand independent of any specific place or time, the fulfilled pursuits of the artist’s visual and intellectual explorations. Elliott wields color boldly, creating sizzling, vibrant shapes that are at once kinetic and placid, grounded in unifying illumination, and focused compositions. He has a fascination with line structure as well, believing that “edges empower colors.”
