Arts council plans for 2002

The Steamboat Springs Arts Council is proud to announce that its 30th anniversary will take place in 2002. In celebration, the organization will be changing some of the programming at the Eleanor Bliss Center for the Arts at the Depot.

It will continue to offer an interesting mix of media, individual and group, educational, regional, national and international shows.

There will be two private/group show opportunities for individual artists or small groups to exhibit their work. Exhibit months will be March and December 2002.

Artists interested in a private/group show will need to complete the following:

Submit a written proposal describing the concept, philosophy, and/or subject matter of the compilation of the work intended for the exhibition.

Submit a minimum of 6 slides per artist of recent work with description, size, medium, date and price. (Work intended for the show need not be completed at time of application.)

Submit a SASE for return of slides.

Work previously shown at the Depot within 12 months of the exhibit will not be accepted.

Shows must have an adequate number of pieces for the gallery space.

All work must be for sale, with a 25 percent commission to the SSAC.

Send above information to The Steamboat Springs Arts Council, PO Box 774284, Steamboat Springs, 80477.

Entries must be received by June 30, 2001.

Wordworks by Roland Bernier

Roland Bernier's mixed-media works will be shown April 21 through Aug. 12 at the Denver Art Museum. For more than 30 years, Bernier, sculptor and photographer, has made his works exploring how individual letters come together to form words.

Bernier began using photography as well as hand-cut plywood letters forged into random words with the same number of letters placed into elegant stacks. His desire is to challenge viewers to look at words and letters as geometric forms, not as bearers of meaning.

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Wednesdays until 9 p.m.); Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is $4.50 for students 13 and older and seniors; $6 for adults; children under 12 are admitted free. Also shown at the museum: Winslow Homer: Facing Nature, until April 29; Ikat: Splendid Silks of Central Asia, until April 29; Joel Shapiro: Sculpture, until April 30; Seven-Point Perspective: Photography from The Denver Salon, until Sept. 2.
