ART TALKS AT THE ART BASE

For Art Base members, these invite-only events present a unique opportunity to meet the artists in an intimate setting and have a glimpse into their creative mind. Join us as we learn about each artists’ art-making techniques and inspirations. We encourage guests to and ask questions about the artists’ work and process.

Art talks are appropriate for the whole family. The Colorado Creative industries explain that visual and verbal literacy are developed through active experiences with the visual arts that include questioning and dialogue, what it often called “Art Talk.”

Past art talk topics have included: printmaking demonstrations, gallery Q&As, healing with color, the business of art, women in art, and art and education.

Benjamin Timpson: Friday, September 13, 2019

Reception for the Artist: 5 – 7PM

Artist Talk: 5:30PM

Join Executive Director Genna Moe and multi-media artist Benjamin Timpson for a reception with the artist and an artist talk revolving around his exhibition, Metamorphosis.

As a descendant of the Pueblo Indian Tribes, Timpson understands that Native Americans embrace the spirituality of nature. In Metamorphosis, he uses the wings of safe-sourced butterflies to create portraits of Native American women who have been murdered, missing, or domestically abused. In conversation with Genna Moe, Timpson will discuss his process which begins by researching Native American victims who have been murdered, missing, or domestically abused.

This exhibition is generously sponsored by Summers Moore.
