Arvada Center's "Art of the State" Reception

Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities is proud to present Art of the State: A Juried Exhibition of Colorado. This statewide juried exhibition garnered 1,635 entries from 588 artists living and working in Colorado. Selections were made by Arvada Center Exhibition Manager and Curator, Collin Parson, and the Clyfford Still Museum's Director, Dean Sobel. Parson and Sobel chose 191 works by 160 artists that represent a wide range of approaches from traditional to experimental.

Emphasizing the Arvada Center's commitment to supporting Colorado artists, this exhibition will showcase the quality, depth and diversity of works being created in the state by emerging and established artists. This juried exhibition was open to all Colorado artists in all media. For the first time, all three of the Arvada Center's galleries, over 10,000 sq. ft., will be dedicated to one exhibition, and there will certainly be something for everyone to enjoy.

    Thanks PhotoTalk and Liz. My last name is Lehman, BTW. Nice to win anything, and there were not many awards in general - 3 HMs, a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. The art? A lot of good art, a lot of bad. It is nice to be in any show and Arvada is a nice place to exhibit, but they could have been more forth coming, maybe awards in Photography, painting, sculpture, etc. Still, nice turnout.

    Lots of people - Art work a disappointment - Think most came for the wine or beer.

    The reception is just a couple of days away and I'm excited! There will be a lot of people there mixed up in mass confusion. I'm going to be in front the main doors (South side close to the large parking lot) about a half-hour before the doors open at 6:00PM. I'll have a sign when out in front. Come early and introduce yourselves to everyone and then we'll go in at 6:00 PM. Because of the crowds, we won't be able to keep the large group together... maybe smaller groups. So I encourage everyone to come a little early to meet first. If you come late, look for me and introduce yourself. I'll be around the photography with a name tag... as one of the artists showing. See you tomorrow.

    I mentioned in my RSVP that I had an image in the show. I received the official announcement from the show last night in the mail and that image was one of images in the announcement.

      Real cool Charlie, congrats on the recognition and exposure. I haven't gotten the announcement yet, but don't expect my image will be included though I'm also in the show. This is a special honor. Glad you're with us..

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
