RiNo Made Salons: New Perspectives on Collecting Art - August 13, 2019
Please join me August 13, 2019, at Converge Denver for a Panel Discussion for Collectors, Artists, Arts Professionals, and People Who Love Art
We'll talk about collecting and selling art in the current art market. We’ll talk about what it means for both artists and collectors to subvert the art-buying process, the links between art and our wellbeing, and how to create a different kind of value within the exchange of art and money.
Panelists include writer, curator, and Hey Hue founder Deanne Gertner; holistic therapist and founder of Trilogy Holistic Mental Health, Chelli Pumphrey, independent curator and University of Denver affiliate faculty, Sarah Magnatta; and Denver artist and design researcher, Angela Craven.
WHEN: August 13, 2019 6:30 - 8:30 pm
WHERE: Converge Denver
TICKETS: **Free and open to the pubic; please register here**
The Art of BEing, Painting and BEing Workshop: July, 2019
I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be working with Kïrsten Blake of Chapter BE on a new series of workshops called:
The Art of Being: Write Your Narrative, Paint Your Story
WHEN: Our next pilot workshop will be on July 30th from 6pm-9pm
“The Art of Being" experience is a space for you to slow things down, reflect, and foster your creativity. Through hands-on activities, including creating your own painting, we guide you through the process of connecting to your core BEing. We often define ourselves based on what we do rather than who we are, but how you do anything is how you do everything. Life is messy, and art gives you permission to be messy. Both are better when you give yourself space and time to try, experiment, fail, and play. We are all creative beings, here’s a fun excuse to tap into yours!
If you are in the Denver area, we’d love to see you on July 30th and connect in person!

Illuminate Live Painting in Response to Denver Choir League's "Illuminate" Performance: May 19, 2019
I'm excited to be collaborating with Denver’s very own Denver Choir League (think: beer league sports…but for singing!).
They will perform two pieces, including Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna and the Colorado premiere of William Menefield’s Prism, both accompanied by a chamber orchestra. As DCL’s current ensemble of more than 80 singers serenades the audience, I will create an original work of art in real-time, based on what radiates from the stage.
WHEN: Sunday, May 19 - Doors at 4:45, Show at 5:30
WHERE: Mile High Spirits (2201 Lawrence Street, Denver, CO, 80205)
TICKETS: $16 can be purchased here
MORE ABOUT THE EVENT:
Illuminate will explore light’s ability to illuminate our path forward, the way we see others, and our own voices,” said Katy Lushman, the founder and artistic director of DCL. “It will be an enchanting evening of both art and song, highlighting not only the talent and passion of Denver’s arts community but also its dedication to supporting music education for local students.”
As audience members sip locally-made cocktails from Mile High Spirits and listen to the dazzling voices of DCL, abstract expressionist painter Angela Craven will delight the audience with a visual representation created in real-time. Craven’s paintings are focused on reflection, strength, and connection, acting as a visual reminder for people to connect with their strength and to celebrate the meaningful people and experiences in their lives.
DCL will donate a portion of each ticket sold to El Sistema Colorado, a nonprofit that transforms the lives of children through music by providing music programs that teach the importance of teamwork, promote self-confidence, and instill the value of social responsibility. Ticket proceeds will benefit children in the Globeville, Elyria-Swansea, Cole, and Clayton neighborhoods. (Read more about El Sistema Colorado here).
