Stacey Steers shares short film excerpts from her work and inspirations in a screening and Q&A with Kim Dickey

Learn about puppets, portraiture, and the emotive power of objects in Margaretta Gilboy’s work. Join Barbara Shark & Simon Zalkind, friends and artistic contemporaries of Gilboy, as they share insights about her use of portraiture, still life, and her ability to capture the emotive power of objects in this diverse body of work.

Join us for a second performance by Exhibiting Artist Candice Davis of her work , the Spring 2020 Present Box exhibition.

Many of Margaretta’s paintings include dolls and toys. Why did she pick them? What did they mean to her? How did she organize them? Explore these questions in this adult workshop led by the Art Students League of Denver (ASLD).

Join Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the Art Students League of Denver for an exploration of Bentonville, Arkansas. Bentonville is nestled in the Ozark Mountains, and is home to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. In February 2020, the museum will open its new contemporary art space satellite, The Momentary. We will round out our experience with the booming culinary scene in the area.

Local artists and art lovers alike are invited to Open Wall – a one-night, self-curated exhibition and silent auction that raises funds for BMoCA and your local art community. Mingle with artists and art supporters, bid on a new work of art for your collection, and enjoy music, light hors d’œuvres, and refreshments.

Join Exhibiting Artist Stacey Steers and Guest Curator Kim Dickey for a walking tour through the surreal world of Night Reels.

Work side-by-side with Stacey Steers and create a collage with your own photographic memories.

Opening remarks by Executive Director David Dadone and Exhibiting Artist Steven Frost.

Margaretta considered herself a realist, yet some of her images appear to be distortions or are spatially ambiguous. For this adult workshop led by the Art Students League of Denver (ASLD), bring a print from a photo that you have taken of your television screen while a favorite program is playing. Do a drawing of the image, or part of the image, and we will discuss what Margaretta may have meant by “reality.”

Explore architecture and how it affects your everyday life. Learn about how buildings function and create your own structures using multi-media materials.

Let’s discuss why Margaretta’s portraits are different than many other artists’ portraits because of the way they place the subject. For this adult workshop led by the Art Students League of Denver (ASLD), bring in a photo of you or someone else or a mirror and try to create a portrait that uses the subject in the same way Margaretta portrayed her subjects.

Mesmerize yourself through the exploration of unconventional forms and art materials in this camp inspired by the work of exhibiting artist John Torreano.
