Artist Statement: Several years ago I experienced multiple traumas when my family lost two young members to violent deaths, a close co-worker died, I was diagnosed with several life altering medical conditions, my income declined and I became the target of workplace bullying, all within a short period of time. These experiences triggered depression, anxiety, and PTSD within me. Early childhood traumas were reactivated and, unable to cope effectively, I found myself at AspenPointe. With help from a Tele- nurse, therapist, and art groups I started to put myself back together. Art therapy allowed me to look into my heart instead of my head and to transform my fear and pain. Through watercolor, I felt colors bloom, change, and move through the water, and started to open myself up. Working with acrylics felt solid and permanent whenever I felt ungrounded and seemed to float away. My photos are created entirely with an old cell phone and free photo editing app. When I'm layering, changing color or orientation, making unexpected connections and patterns I am reminded about how my life has changed and will never go back to the way it was. Through my work, I realize that I'm capable of taking control of how I react to change and how changes affect me. [less-]

This class will take you out and show you how to harvest the bounty of the land. Wild edibles are so abundant in so many locations and many people around the world live in hunger simply because they have a lack of knowledge about the plants around them.

  • Learning plant family identification patterns
  • How to prepare plants for edibility
  • Cordage plants and useful bushcraft plants
  • Medicinal Plant applications: treating cuts, anti-diarrheal, making primitive quick clot, stopping bleeding, purgatives, anti-fungal, stimulating the immune system, skin cancers, hygiene/cleansing agents, tannic acid uses, plants with salicin (aka asprin), laxatives, and much more!
  • What books to buy and how to start wild crafting
If you have an interest in learning the botany of your surroundings then this is the first place to begin. Plant knowledge will truly change your life and they way you perceive the wilderness!

Issues of social justice and racially motivated violence have been tragically at the forefront of the news in the past several years. The deaths of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, and many others have brought with them a painful awareness for many Americans of the sometimes hidden forces that continue to undermine civil rights in our society. The exhibition Force/Resistance seeks to stimulate dialogue around the complex relationships between systems of power and violence in the United States. The artists in the exhibition address a range of issues including racial profiling, mortality, racially motivated conflict, and legislative oppression. [less-]

What started out as an exercise in creativity ended up being much more than a collection of photographs. I realized that my story and the story of the tree could have a huge impact on people in communities everywhere. The method I used to reach my goal and the lessons I learned throughout this project have become just as important as the photographs themselves. One tree and one year is what it took for me to find my voice. I want to share this experience with as many people as possible. As someone who deals with 3 disabling illnesses (fibromyalgia, depression and chemical sensitivities) I strongly believe that this project has the power to inspire others to achieve their goals and live lives full of awareness. If one tree can have this much of an impact on me and those who become aware of this project and its lessons, imagine what 1,000 trees or 1,000,000 trees could do to change our world in a positive way.

Artist Statement: Several years ago I experienced multiple traumas when my family lost two young members to violent deaths, a close co-worker died, I was diagnosed with several life altering medical conditions, my income declined and I became the target of workplace bullying, all within a short period of time. These experiences triggered depression, anxiety, and PTSD within me. Early childhood traumas were reactivated and, unable to cope effectively, I found myself at AspenPointe. With help from a Tele- nurse, therapist, and art groups I started to put myself back together. Art therapy allowed me to look into my heart instead of my head and to transform my fear and pain. Through watercolor, I felt colors bloom, change, and move through the water, and started to open myself up. Working with acrylics felt solid and permanent whenever I felt ungrounded and seemed to float away. My photos are created entirely with an old cell phone and free photo editing app. When I'm layering, changing color or orientation, making unexpected connections and patterns I am reminded about how my life has changed and will never go back to the way it was. Through my work, I realize that I'm capable of taking control of how I react to change and how changes affect me. [less-]

This class will take you out and show you how to harvest the bounty of the land. Wild edibles are so abundant in so many locations and many people around the world live in hunger simply because they have a lack of knowledge about the plants around them. Our instructors will cover the most common plants in Colorado. This is a very hands-on oriented course that will take us on walks in several different types of ecosystems so that you are prepared to find food in almost any environment. Students will have the opportunity to taste the plants we cover so that they know and understand the wonderful flavors involved in wild crafting! Not only will we cover the edible uses but also the medicinal, utilitarian and various bushcraft uses of wild plants. Difficulty Rating: Beginner to Intermediate Topics covered include:
  • Learning plant family identification patterns
  • How to prepare plants for edibility
  • Cordage plants and useful bushcraft plants
  • Medicinal Plant applications: treating cuts, anti-diarrheal, making primitive quick clot, stopping bleeding, purgatives, anti-fungal, stimulating the immune system, skin cancers, hygiene/cleansing agents, tannic acid uses, plants with salicin (aka asprin), laxatives, and much more!
  • What books to buy and how to start wild crafting
If you have an interest in learning the botany of your surroundings then this is the first place to begin. Plant knowledge will truly change your life and they way you perceive the wilderness! This is a very comprehensive course and most students are overwhelmed with the amount of info and plant knowledge we cover so be prepared to take notes and cover a lot of material. [less-]

Issues of social justice and racially motivated violence have been tragically at the forefront of the news in the past several years. The deaths of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, and many others have brought with them a painful awareness for many Americans of the sometimes hidden forces that continue to undermine civil rights in our society.

What started out as an exercise in creativity ended up being much more than a collection of photographs. I realized that my story and the story of the tree could have a huge impact on people in communities everywhere. The method I used to reach my goal and the lessons I learned throughout this project have become just as important as the photographs themselves. One tree and one year is what it took for me to find my voice. I want to share this experience with as many people as possible. As someone who deals with 3 disabling illnesses (fibromyalgia, depression and chemical sensitivities) I strongly believe that this project has the power to inspire others to achieve their goals and live lives full of awareness. If one tree can have this much of an impact on me and those who become aware of this project and its lessons, imagine what 1,000 trees or 1,000,000 trees could do to change our world in a positive way.

"In my art, I often aim to blur the line between reality and abstraction. I like to challenge my perception of things, and you, the viewer, are thereby challenged as well. I am optimistic and playful, and my work tends to be as well." "So please, dust off your imagination muscles while viewing my artwork. I hope you not only enjoy my paintings, but that you purchase every last one of them. My work has been proudly displayed in private and public collections throughout the world. Thank you for your interest." Ric's work will be displayed from now until July 7. You can meet him at the 3rd Friday Reception on May 19 from 4-8 p.m. in conjunction with Audrey Gray's "Earthscapes" and the Military Appreciation Show "Honor and Remember." The Featured AAFC Artist section of the gallery is dedicated to those consignment artists that have gone above and beyond in their support of Academy Art & Frame Company. It is our way to give an extra "thank you!" for their time and dedication. [less-]

How can you participate in a 2018 Commonwheel Artists Co-op Visiting Artists Show without becoming a member? Commonwheel Artists Co-op is currently accepting applications for individuals or groups of artists for Gallery Shows in 2018.

Often the outcome from this exploration transforms routine work and suggests new directions. Openings with themes that integrate music and food with the work itself create a genuine event which generates excitement about the work and the Gallery. [less-]
