Join the First Friday opening for this exhibition at Blank Canvas Café on August 4 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Andrea Pliner is a contemporary artist with a special talent for turning yesterday's found objects into modern artwork. Through a unique vision, Pliner is able to weld and transform items as seemingly minute as a crushed bottle cap into an fantastical landscape. As one can see in Pliner's final pieces, what was once an ordinary and easily overlooked item becomes a sculpture form brimming with poetic narratives, and choke full of secrets for viewers to reveal. Pliner has lived in Colorado for over 30 years and calls Denver her home.

Experience mining old and new this summer and explore gold rush history past and present at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The Museum, which is has operated in its current location for over 50 years, will be open weekends starting in April and will open on a daily basis starting on Saturday, May 27 at 9:30 a.m. The museum will again be hosting tours of the Newmont Mining Corporation’s Cripple Creek & Victor operations near Victor. Modern mine tours will start May 28 leaving from the Museum. Tour experiences will offer the chance to see giant haul trucks, shovels and drill rigs in action in the large surface mine between Victor and Cripple Creek, Colorado. Watch boulders being crushed into gravel and learn about the modern refining methods while helping to preserve the district’s 1890’s history - all tour proceeds go to the Museum to help offset operations and building renovation costs. This summer the mine tours will be available May 28 through Sept. 4 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. daily, except no tours will be held on Thursdays. In addition, tours are offered Sept. 9 and 10 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Check VictorColorado.com for additional tour times and dates during July weekends. The cost is $8.50 per person - an affordable way for the entire family to see a real working gold mine. Only children 5 years of age and older are allowed on the tours. Please be sure to reserve your tour dates (June is the slowest and the best time to make a reservation) as they are very popular and fill up quickly. [less-]

As a child, the book "2001: A Space Odyssey" by Arthur C Clarke ignited Munro’s imagination about all things ‘space’ but it was Stanley Kubrick’s film interpretation of the novel that presented him with a new perspective on the world. The subtlety of Kubrick’s interpretation of a man-made machine surpassing the intelligence of its human makers was a concept Munro found both chilling and humorous. "Thank You for a Very Enjoyable Game" is as much about Kubrick’s genius as a filmmaker as it is a stark warning to a world where artificial intelligence and the human condition grow ever closer. This is a subject so pertinent today in a world driven by technology. The work is also a reflection on Munro’s continued interest in language and literature where written and visual experiences are translated and re-interpreted by him through his work. Munro’s work creates a visual abstraction of the chess game between the spaceship supercomputer HAL 9000 and the astronaut Dr. Frank Poole. 30 chess boards, inlaid with colored Formica, are positioned in a linear formation tracking the moves made in the chess game. A subtle audio soundtrack of chimes (suggesting a ‘chess clock’ timer) indicate a move has been made by a player. Each square has a designated audio note that is derived from Tingsha, the cymbals used in prayer and rituals by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. The chime was specifically chosen to emphasize the contemplative nature of the game of chess. [less-]

Welcome to the realms of low relief sculpture as an expression of mind, metaphor and meaning. Low relief, one of the great sculptural mediums of the ancient world, generates the appearance of measurable space through the manipulation of implied distance and dimension. Through it, a sculptor is offered a unique method of engaging complex ideas, compositions and narratives. Jeremiah Welsh has lived and pursued the possibilities of low relief sculpture professionally for twenty years. This exhibition explores works that manifest Jeremiah's love of and dedication to this remarkable medium, in a dynamic collection of both early sculptures and contemporary undertakings. Share in Jeremiah's visions of self-introspection and the wonderment of nature through one of the oldest forms of creative virtual space. This is the first time that the Cultural Office has exhibited sculpture in low relief. Jeremiah D. Welsh is an elected member of the National Sculpture Society. He has recently relocated from Tokyo, Japan to Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 2016 he received the Montana Memorial Prize at the 83rd Annual Awards Exhibition for "an outstanding work, either cast or carved." This year his sculpture “Reaction Time – The Lizard and the Roadrunner,” has been invited to the 84th Annual Awards Exhibition and will be on display at the Brookgreen Gardens, on Pawleys Island, South Carolina (August-Oct, 2017).

Join the First Friday opening for this exhibition at Blank Canvas Café on August 4 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Andrea Pliner is a contemporary artist with a special talent for turning yesterday's found objects into modern artwork. Through a unique vision, Pliner is able to weld and transform items as seemingly minute as a crushed bottle cap into an fantastical landscape. As one can see in Pliner's final pieces, what was once an ordinary and easily overlooked item becomes a sculpture form brimming with poetic narratives, and choke full of secrets for viewers to reveal. Pliner has lived in Colorado for over 30 years and calls Denver her home.

Experience mining old and new this summer and explore gold rush history past and present at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The Museum, which is has operated in its current location for over 50 years, will be open weekends starting in April and will open on a daily basis starting on Saturday, May 27 at 9:30 a.m. The museum will again be hosting tours of the Newmont Mining Corporation’s Cripple Creek & Victor operations near Victor. Modern mine tours will start May 28 leaving from the Museum. Tour experiences will offer the chance to see giant haul trucks, shovels and drill rigs in action in the large surface mine between Victor and Cripple Creek, Colorado. Watch boulders being crushed into gravel and learn about the modern refining methods while helping to preserve the district’s 1890’s history - all tour proceeds go to the Museum to help offset operations and building renovation costs. This summer the mine tours will be available May 28 through Sept. 4 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. daily, except no tours will be held on Thursdays. In addition, tours are offered Sept. 9 and 10 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Check VictorColorado.com for additional tour times and dates during July weekends. The cost is $8.50 per person - an affordable way for the entire family to see a real working gold mine. Only children 5 years of age and older are allowed on the tours. Please be sure to reserve your tour dates (June is the slowest and the best time to make a reservation) as they are very popular and fill up quickly. [less-]

As a child, the book "2001: A Space Odyssey" by Arthur C Clarke ignited Munro’s imagination about all things ‘space’ but it was Stanley Kubrick’s film interpretation of the novel that presented him with a new perspective on the world. The subtlety of Kubrick’s interpretation of a man-made machine surpassing the intelligence of its human makers was a concept Munro found both chilling and humorous. "Thank You for a Very Enjoyable Game" is as much about Kubrick’s genius as a filmmaker as it is a stark warning to a world where artificial intelligence and the human condition grow ever closer. This is a subject so pertinent today in a world driven by technology. The work is also a reflection on Munro’s continued interest in language and literature where written and visual experiences are translated and re-interpreted by him through his work. Munro’s work creates a visual abstraction of the chess game between the spaceship supercomputer HAL 9000 and the astronaut Dr. Frank Poole. 30 chess boards, inlaid with colored Formica, are positioned in a linear formation tracking the moves made in the chess game. A subtle audio soundtrack of chimes (suggesting a ‘chess clock’ timer) indicate a move has been made by a player. Each square has a designated audio note that is derived from Tingsha, the cymbals used in prayer and rituals by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. The chime was specifically chosen to emphasize the contemplative nature of the game of chess. [less-]

Welcome to the realms of low relief sculpture as an expression of mind, metaphor and meaning. Low relief, one of the great sculptural mediums of the ancient world, generates the appearance of measurable space through the manipulation of implied distance and dimension. Through it, a sculptor is offered a unique method of engaging complex ideas, compositions and narratives. Jeremiah Welsh has lived and pursued the possibilities of low relief sculpture professionally for twenty years. This exhibition explores works that manifest Jeremiah's love of and dedication to this remarkable medium, in a dynamic collection of both early sculptures and contemporary undertakings. Share in Jeremiah's visions of self-introspection and the wonderment of nature through one of the oldest forms of creative virtual space. This is the first time that the Cultural Office has exhibited sculpture in low relief. Jeremiah D. Welsh is an elected member of the National Sculpture Society. He has recently relocated from Tokyo, Japan to Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 2016 he received the Montana Memorial Prize at the 83rd Annual Awards Exhibition for "an outstanding work, either cast or carved." This year his sculpture “Reaction Time – The Lizard and the Roadrunner,” has been invited to the 84th Annual Awards Exhibition and will be on display at the Brookgreen Gardens, on Pawleys Island, South Carolina (August-Oct, 2017).
