Art Gym Celebrates the Art of Rocks
Art Rocks: Jewelry, Photography and Sculpture, September 17 – October 31, 2015
(Denver) Art Gym Denver is opening up their new Metalsmithing and Lapidary workspace for membership. Art Gym is challenging the traditional studio model by helping metalsmiths create more, for less. They provide access to the metalsmithing and lapidary tools artists need to make art.
This exhibition explores and celebrates Colorado’s rich rock and mineral history, while showing how artists use rocks in different mediums such as Jewelry, Photography and Sculpture. Often perceived as a challenging medium to work in, the included artists will showcase the tremendous amount of craftsmanship they put forth while working with stone and metal to create their final works of art. Art Rocks will run from September 17 – October 31, 2015 and coincides with the Denver Gem & Mineral Showcase.
Exhibiting artists include Alex Boyd, Tim DeShong, Lexi Erickson, Laura Kiefer, Nancy Krim, Travis Ogden, Dale Smith and Mike Woodward.
Opening and Artist Reception: Thursday, September 17, 2015, 5-8PM.
