Second Friday Artist’s Reception
January 8 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Artists’ Gallery to Host January’s “2nd Friday”!
With the First Friday in January falling on New Years’ Day, The Artists’ Gallery announces that we will host our monthly artist’s reception on the 2nd Friday, January 8th, from 5-8 p.m. We continue to follow the state’s updated guidelines for Freemont County to remain COVID-19 compliant and will monitor the number of guests entering the Gallery for physical distancing and masking. Live music will be provided by Chuck Binkowski on acoustic guitar. Please join us for our first art event of 2021—or drop in any day of the week to view our Featured Artists’ work virtually in private! Featured Artists are:
A seasoned artist, Linda Roper has been painting for over 35 years—exploring and developing her skills in a variety of paint mediums. Linda also has a passion for photography and receives inspiration for her images from all of creation, as well as our beautiful local scenery. She has captured some spectacular images of the Royal Gorge Bridge and Railroad!
Watercolorist Mary Cotner states, “Although I have tried different painting mediums, my love for the richness and fluidity of watercolor always brings me back.” She adds, “I love bright, rich colors, which relate so well to my favorite subjects, birds and flowers.”
Lori Anne Dickerman enjoyed a 32-year career as a technical illustrator and in IT. She exclaims, “When I retired in 2018, I put down the network cables and picked up a paint brush!” Lori was instrumental in organizing the Plein Air Colours group, comprised of 23 local artists of every skill level, who meet weekly to paint together out-of-doors (plein air). She loves painting landscapes and the theme for her featured display is “Wonderful World!”
Community support of the arts is vital to its existence! The Artists’ Gallery expresses our sincere gratitude for the continuing support of our local community over the past year, as we continue to struggle to keep our doors open.
