Colorado - Brooklyn Half Drop
Join us at Gallery 81435 for First Thursday Art Walk and Opening Reception. Featured Artists: Benny Merris Christopher Ho Craig Taylor Flair Robinson Gabrielle D’Angelo Kim Faiella Furrh Maya Arthur Meghan Petras Melvin Strawn Meredith Nemirov Phyllis Rider Stephen Truax Vilas Tonape Vince Contarino CO/BKLYN HALF DROP is an invitational group show of abstract works on paper curated by Meredith Nemirov. This exhibit features the work of 14 artists, seven from Colorado with one from each of the first Colorado Certified Creative Districts and seven from Brooklyn, NY. Each artist’s work will be represented by ten abstract unframed works on paper, which include collage, painting, drawing, and printmaking. The installation of these works follows a French textile design that was widely used in the 1800’s to hang wallpaper. The half-drop patterns repeat at the ceiling on every other strip and the direction tends to run diagonally, like a checkerboard. The Telluride Arts District embraces both regional and global artists and their combined work contributes to the dynamic culture of the arts. Connections between Telluride and Brooklyn are numerous and this exhibit unites communities across both state and country. The exhibit runs through September 29th. Regular hours are noon-six daily or by appointment. Contact Gallery 81435 970.728.3930 for more information.
