The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities and Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art are proud to partner to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the 2009 book Colorado Abstract: Paintings and Sculpture, by Michael Paglia and Mary Voelz Chandler, with a foreword by Hugh Grant. This landmark publication highlighted the history and continuing tradition of abstraction by artists in the state.
The Arvada Center, in their Main Gallery, will exhibit a contemporary survey of works by artists originally included in the publication. In their Upper and Theatre Galleries, additional artists working in abstraction that have also made an impact on Colorado's art scene will be featured.
Kirkland Museum will present an exhibition of two and three-dimensional artworks created by the artists featured in the historical section of the book, tracing the history and development of this artistic style in Colorado.
