Art exchange bridges cultures, religions during difficult time

RIFLE — Xhuljeta (think “Julieta”) Bajrami took in the splendor of falling water, lush vegetation and blue sky at Rifle Falls State Park on Thursday morning and put her paintbrush to work.
The Kosovo artist, speaking through translator Lonnie Alija, described the spiritual pleasure she gets while painting.
“I’m just enjoying the beautiful surroundings here. It’s just reflecting back through me and into the canvas,” Bajrami said.
On a cultural exchange to Colorado this month with other Kosovo artists, she described her waterfalls painting as a postcard she will be bringing back to people in Kosovo.
