Folk, Fine and Funky: Buffalo Bill in Art @ Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave
Oct 2 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Folk, Fine and Funky: Buffalo Bill in Art @ Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave | Golden | Colorado | United States

Folk, Fine and Funky: Buffalo Bill in Art, includes folk art, fine art, and popular (funky) art depicting one of America’s most iconic characters.  Some of the art has been in the museum’s collection since it first opened in 1921 and has not been displayed for decades.  Other art pieces have been newly added to the collection in the past five years, such as a rare velvet painting of Buffalo Bill on horseback.

Several works of art are on loan, including a painting of Buffalo Bill taking the “first scalp for Custer” by contemporary Western artist Thom Ross and an unusual depiction of Cody by 19th century British illustrator Alick P.F. Ritchie.  The artwork will run the gamut from the serious to the strange but it will all depict Buffalo Bill’s life and legend.  

Buffalo Bill Museum & Grave, 987 Lookout Mountain Road, Golden, CO 80401. For more information call 303-526-0744.

Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Exhibition 2014 @ Foothills Art Center | Golden | Colorado | United States

Foothills Art Center (FAC) is pleased to announce the Rocky Mountain National Watermedia exhibition 2014, regarded as one of the top watermedia exhibitions in the country, from September 13 through October 26, 2014.

The Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Exhibition 2014 is a selection of 68 distinct works of art from 616 entries, making 2014 one of the more exclusive exhibitions in recent years. The best of the nation’s watermedia artists are featured in this popular exhibition, including the 2015 RMNW juror, Mark Mehaffey, and 2013 RMNW Best of Show winner, Miles Batt, Sr.

Since 1974, when community watercolor artists approached then Director Marion Metsopoulos with the idea of a national watercolor show, Foothills Art Center has established its own interpretation of this exhibition by introducing “watermedia” as its emphasis. The goal was, and still is, to reach beyond the tradition of pure watercolor and embrace innovation in water-based media that now includes acrylic, casein, gouache, egg tempera, and mixed media.

Evolutions: Third Biennial Quilt Challenge @ Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum
Oct 3 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Evolutions: Third Biennial Quilt Challenge @ Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum | Golden | Colorado | United States

Evolutions: Third Biennial Juried Quilt Challenge also American Antiques from the Strouse Collection  Where have you been? Where are you now? Where are you going? The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum challenged quilters and fiber artists to consider these questions and create a quilt inspired by the theme “Evolutions”.  The 25 pieces selected by juror Dr. Sandra Sider demonstrate just how many ways the idea can be expressed. Candace Weiss’s large-scale appliqued crab addresses the theme obliquely, employing a traditional technique to depict an unusual subject.Several artists interpreted the exhibition theme through physical manifestations of shifting surfaces, including overlaid transitions, rhythmic swaths of color, floating stars, and interrupted edges. Others incorporated repurposed materials into their quilts, literally allowing them to “evolve. Themes of evolution, change, and transition also are represented by depictions of biological structures, canyons and fossils, dream images, and historical events. We are also faced with the cheetah of Barbara Yates Beasley, an instance of evolutionary perfection.

Also: American antique quilts from 1850 through 1935 are featured in the recently acquired Strouse collection. This exhibit runs through October 28, 2014.  Museum hours are Monday – Saturday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm and Sundays 11:00 am – 4:00 pm 

The remaining 2014 SCFD free days at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum are: July 29 & October 28.
