Ansel Adams:  Masterworks @ Foothills Art Center @ Foothills Art Center | Golden | Colorado | United States

The photographs presented in Ansel Adams:  Masterworks reveal the importance Adams placed on the visual splendor of natural environments such as the Sierra Nevada, Yosemite Valley and New Mexico.  Landmark photographs such as Monolith, the Face of Half Dome, Yosemite National Park, California and Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico are included in the exhibition.  It is through Adams’s photographs that many Americans have come to know these places.

Adams has long been recognized as one of America’s premier photographers.  Adams grew up in San Francisco, where he was born in 1902.  He was introduced to the expanse of California’s Yosemite Valley while on a family vacation at the age of fourteen.  At this time he was also given a No. 1 Brownie Box camera.  These two events strongly influenced the course of Adams’s life.

Ansel Adams: Masterworks runs from June 13 through August 30, 2015.

This exhibition was organized by the Turtle Bay Exploration Park, Redding, CA.  Exhibition tour management by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA

Gwen Marston: Contemporary Quilts @ The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum @ Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum
Jul 2 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Gwen Marston: Contemporary Quilts @ The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum  @ Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum | Golden | Colorado | United States

Gwen Marston: Contemporary Quilts @ The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. Gwen Marston has been one of the country’s most influential quilt makers for three decades. With her famously “liberated” approach to patchwork, the author of 26 books has made quilting an accessible, joyful process for countless quilters. She’s known for creating exuberant, contemporary pieces which always pay tribute to the antique quilts that first captured her imagination. The vibrant, solid colors Gwen has chosen for the pieces in this exhibit have the visual impact of Amish quilts, while the improvisational designs remain uniquely her own.

If there’s such a thing as quilt royalty, Gwen Marston is it. Although her quilts have been shown across the country and as far away as Japan and New Zealand, this is the first time a significant exhibition of Gwen’s work will appear in the Rocky Mountain region.

Also on exhibit will be Native American Portraits by Patsy Heacox.  Patsy Heacox has been called a storyteller in textile. Museum visitors will encounter monumental, often life-size portraits surrounded by meticulously-researched symbols and quotations that help tell the subject’s story. Patsy says viewers have told her they felt “spoken to” through her imagery, something she finds extremely gratifying. While not a Native American herself, she portrays her subjects with dignity and respect.   Also in the gallery: Native American Quilts from the RMQM collection.

Gwen Marston’s Contemporary Quilts and Native American Portraits by Patsy Heacox are on exhibit from  April 30 through July 28, 2015. The mission of the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum is to collect, preserve, exhibit, and educate the public about quilts; honor quilt making traditions; and embrace the evolution of the art and craft of quilting.

The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum’s hours are:  Monday  - Saturday : 10 am-4 pm | Sunday: 11-4 pm

Calendar Girls to Cowboys: The Art of Selling Coors @ Golden History Center
Jul 2 @ 11:00 am
Calendar Girls to Cowboys: The Art of Selling Coors  @ Golden History Center | Golden | Colorado | United States

Calendar Girls to Cowboys: The Art of Selling Coors is the newest exhibit at the Golden History Center.  Calendar Girls to Cowboys presents the popular tools of advertising Golden’s Coor’s Beer.

Despite an aversion to advertising or a degree in marketing, Adolph Coors, Sr., founder of Golden’s famous brewery, knew how to sell his beer. He worked hard to make the best beer in the world with the belief that the quality of his product would speak for itself. Even though demand exceeded supply, the Coors Brewing Company still put its name out there—on everything from newspaper ads to beer trays, matchbooks, and signs.

Coors released its first illustrated ads in 1893 in the form of calendars that featured female figures. Some things haven’t changed, and the one displayed is a beauty. Meet Coors’ first and second ad men, go behind the ubiquitous waterfall campaign, and find the inspiration for the Coors Cowboy Collectors Series of Western American Art by Gordon Snidow.

The gallery is designed to evoke a tavern, complete with pool table and a special nod to one of Golden’s favorite watering holes, the Goosetown Tavern.

While there’s no beer on tap, guests are free to get reacquainted with “America’s Fine Light Beer” and shoot some eight-ball. Don’t miss this opportunity to see over four dozen rare and classic Coors signs on loan from nine private and corporate collections—many of which have never been publicly seen.

Exhibit and museum hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays 11:00 am – 4:30 pm and Sundays noon – 4:30 pm
