You are cordially invited to attend the new statewide mosaics exhibition, “Mosaics: Cutting Edges” starting this Friday, November 4 at the eventgallery910arts in Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District. Opening Night / First Friday will be from 6-9 pm, with entertainment and a cash bar available and most, if not all, artists attending (I WILL be there!). My sculptural mosaic moose, “A Tale of Two Colorados” is amongst the exhibit pieces and I also have a few pieces available in their on-site Gift Gallery, where items generally run much lower than the exhibit pieces. This Colorado Mosaic Artists exhibit features 56 mosaic pieces from 22 different artists across the state.

While you’re at the exhibit, be sure to check out the only all-mosaic studio and gallery in Colorado, Kashi Kari Gallery, also located at 910arts. Their whole space is covered by and decorated with mosaics; it’s amazing! Abbas and Roya are amazing artists and teachers; that’s who I took my first mosaic class from!
And then, one last thing I wanted to share is about another two other terrific exhibits in the Santa Fe Arts District. Most of you know about my love of Mexican art and culture, including their holidays and traditions. I thought I’d share info. about two of the Day of the Dead (El Dia de los Muertos) exhibits going on, in case you’re interested…
1) Closing Reception/ Meet the Artists, this Friday, from 4-9 pm (I’ll be there before our exhbiit opening at 6 pm!): Studio12 Gallery (while 910arts is at 9th and Santa Fe, Studio12 is at 2nd & Kalamath, but is one of the stops for the free shuttle on First Fridays!):
2) Closing Reception/Meet the Artists, this Friday, from 2-10 pmat CHAC (Chicaco Humanities & Arts Council):in the “CHAC Norte” Gallery, which is right on the SE corner of 8th and Santa Fe (bright colored mural on front of building). MANY very affordable and amazing pieces of art; great for holiday presents.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions; I’d be glad to answer any and get you down to see some great local art!
