The Art Center to have ‘Movers and Shakers’ show
In celebration of its 60th birthday, The Art Center will open a “Movers and Shakers” exhibit featuring artists “chosen for their work and their utter devotion” to The Art Center.
An opening reception for “Movers and Shakers” will begin at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, at the center, 1803 N. Seventh St.
Artist in the exhibit are Kay Ambrose, Tricia Berg, Bhreon Bynum, David Cook, Dianna Fritzler, Patricia Feinberg, Jac Kephart, Trina Lindsey, Ashtonn Means, Don Meyers, Cathey Pabst, Suzi Rhea, Diana Woods and Terry Shepherd. There also will be works from the permanent collection from Ruth Moss and Clarence Prinster. The exhibit will be on display through Sept. 30.
“It was not hard to choose who would be in this exhibit — mostly because I know there will be more exhibits, more birthdays and everyone gets to participate here,” wrote The Art Center’s executive director and curator Camille Silverman in a news release. “It was just about balancing media, generations and the range of Art Center involvement to show a mighty snippet of those who do great things here.”
Opening reception music will be played by the Generational Jazz Ensemble with celebrity bartenders Claudia Crowell and Mary Hertert.
Also opening at The Art Center is the ninth annual Mile High Pastel Exhibition on display Friday through Thursday, Sept. 6–12.
