Quilts: Without a Net: Stories and Investigations by Bobbi Baugh. Bobbi Baugh is interested in patterns and relationships—human, organic, and those that imply casualty and consequence. Sometimes she explores them in the role of artist-as-storyteller. Sometimes she explores them in the role of artist-as-archaeologist—digging for things unseen and arranging them with elements that might not be expected. Her work draws the viewer into the narrative, evoking a desire to look deeply at the images, to remember them, and to wonder about their meaning. Baugh’s collaged works draw on both the traditions of hand printmaking and art quilting. Rhythms of each tradition speak to and complement one another. Bobbi Baugh was the first prize winner of Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum’s 2014 Evolutions Juried Quilt Challenge.
Also in the gallery: Past Presence: Antique Quilts that Capture the Imagination
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.
“Without a Net” runs from January 30, until April 28, 2015. 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 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

With help from the Mines Activities Council, the group will host a block party that will include food trucks, a beer garden, bubble soccer, donation stations, a sustainability station and other eco-friendly activities.
“Everyday should be Earth Day, but we are very excited to celebrate with the Mines campus,” said Elizabeth Starbuck, EarthWorks president. “It’s easy to ignore the pressing issue of climate change and take our Earth’s beauty for granted when you have tests, labs and endless amounts of homework, but we think it’s important to take a break and celebrate the Earth.”
EarthWorks consists of 53 members who plan events to help educate students on environmental issues and promote ways to help the environment. Currently they are working on to promote the university’s efficiency efforts across campus. They are also organizing a spring garden party, where they will re-purpose one of the senior design team’s concrete canoes for planting.
