"In a Winter Garden"

January 28, 2017

A multi-disciplinary collaboration of sculpture, dance, and music, and the culmination of Will Clift's artist residency at Stanford University.

'In a Winter Garden' is a dance performance and sculptural installation that investigates the shared signature elements of Will Clift’s large-scale sculptures, Diane Frank’s site-specific choreography, and Jarek Kapuscinski’s music: intervals of balance, imbalance, and breathed connection within an ever-shifting environment. The performance will feature both student and alumni dancers.

The Japanese aesthetic concept of “ma,” a breath-related sense of interval in time and space, runs through all three art forms in this work. Both sculpture and movement will unfold within a sonic environment; Japanese master musician Ko Ishikawa will play the score in live performance on the “Sho,” or 'mouth organ.'

February 4th at 1:30, 5:30, and 6:30p.m. Bing Concert Hall Atrium, Stanford Campus. 

Over The River Statement

January 25, 2017

“After pursuing Over The River, Project for the Arkansas River, State of Colorado, for 20 years and going through five years of legal arguments, I no longer wish to wait on the outcome. I have decided to devote all of my energy, time and resources into the realization of The Mastaba, Project for Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, which Jeanne-Claude and I conceived 40 years ago. I have been fortunate to work with many dedicated Colorado residents as well as Federal and State agencies who have been a part of Over The River. I am grateful to everyone who was part of this journey.”
— Christo, January 25, 2017

Jerry Uelsmann Rocks Bon Jovi

September 28, 2016

There is a picture that has haunted Jon Bon Jovi for a while. It wouldn’t get out of his head. It was a black & white photograph by Jerry Uelsmann. The artist had combined a picture of an old house, with strong roots. For Jon “this photo paints our picture – and so it became our album cover”, he says. The album drops October 21, 2016 and can be pre-ordered on 

A Free Public Artist Talk by Shawna Moore and Jeff Hirst

July 20, 2016

Join us Thursday July 28, at 6pm.

A Telluride Gallery of Fine Arts artist since 2010, Shawna Moore uses the interplay of materials in her encaustic work as a visual diary of her life experiences.  In the layers of her work that appear and disappear in the creative process, Moore creates a record of her own selective memory.

Jeff Hirst, a newcomer to Telluride, uses printmaking to investigate relationships between man-made architectural structure and the natural landscape, and the questions that arise when these two forces coexist in an urban environment.  

Both Moore and Hirst create work in action, their pieces shift and change with each layer of composition.  This July in Telluride, Moore and Hirst will join forces to explore the dynamic relationship between screen printing and encaustic painting, through a public, joint artist talk on July 

Also, don't miss Wax and Screen: Combining Techniques for Unique Outcomes at the Ah Haa School, July 29th - 31st.  

By creating repeatable printed designs that can then be transferred onto wax, Hirst and Moore will explain how multiple transparent layers of color and image slowly develop into a multi-dimensional, evocative work of art.
