Final Show of the Year – Artist’s Gallery Walk this Friday

posted in: Events, Plein Air | 0

This Friday’s Gallery Walk in Fort Collins, includes the final show of the year for the Plein Air Artists of Colorado (PAAC).  All year long, our PAAC group gathered to paint the landscape around Fort Collins, Loveland and Estes Park.

Each year our friendships deepen, and a few new faces appear.

We paint, chat, share ideas and laugh. We encourage each other, and we strive to improve.

We paint in the snow, in the cold and the heat of summer.

We look out for snakes, poison ivy and each other.

We watch the light shift and change, the leaves unfurl and  eventually fall to the ground.  We marvel at how the cottonwoods glow in fall and share handwarmers when it’s too cold to hold a brush.

As December rolls around, we gather our paintings, put on a few finishing touches, and hang our best work at the Community Creative Center in Fort Collins.  Over the next two weeks, we will demonstrate our techniques, and share our work with the community.  And, we hope that you take a piece home with you.  As a friend once said, a piece of art is only complete when shared.

If you are in the area, I hope you can make it to the show. 

The show runs November 30 – December 10th, and is open from 12-6 pm Wed-Sat. 

This Friday night, December 2nd, is the artist’s opening reception and the

First Friday Gallery Walk  from 6-9 pm.

And, if you are looking for a special gift, that shares your love of nature and Colorado living, this is the place for you.

Either way, we hope you enjoy the show, and feel a little piece of the love we have for our beautiful state and natural areas.
