Based on the number of entries and comments in our guest book, our third annual invitational show, “Visions of the Gold Rush” was much enjoyed by the Divide community. Sixteen guest entries juried into the show, together with those of the Gallery members, were on display through the month of September. A lively reception was held September 10, with people and music spilling from the gallery into our garden.
Peoples' Choice Award to artist Carol Clark
Gallery members are immensely pleased with the attention the show received, and appreciative of the effort of our guest artists to prepare and enter their works. Votes were collected during the show for a “People’s Choice Award”, which we are happy to announce has been presented to Carol Clark for her evocative photograph, “Rodney”.
We look forward to another successful invitational art show in 2017. Please watch for our Call To Artists in late spring.
David Blonski Featured Artist for October
Art on the Divide Cooperative Gallery continues its monthly “Featured Artist” series with the work of David Blonski. David’s art and music will be featured in the gallery for the month of October and the public is invited to a reception for the artist on Sunday October 16 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Experience his music and video work while you browse through the gallery and enjoy some refreshments.
David is an extraordinary multi-media artist working in jewelry design, music & video production, digital art prints and labyrinth building. His newest addition to the gallery is his bronze fusion jewelry that he first created in the 1970’s. Each piece he makes is one-of-a kind, forged from bronze wire and rod using a jeweler’s torch to sculpt and flow the metal into its finished form using a free-hand technique rarely seen.
David’s music, mostly instrumental, interprets the peaceful and joyful moods evoked by the natural wonders of our planet while celebrating its rich multi-cultural diversity. Blonski has been a prolific composer over the last 30 years and he has a number of original CD’s and DVD’s to choose from at the Gallery.
David’s Fractal Art was initially used as multi-media content for his live concert performances and then later went into video productions and printed media. He creates his images on a computer using mathematical formulas capable of creating an infinite number of points in space that are arranged in unusual organic patterns. By using different formulas, color palettes and filters, he searches for new and unexplored "fractal realms" to create vibrant original images.
