CMC ArtShare and Carbondale Arts present “Impressions In Ink” at the CMC ArtShare Gallery at Morgridge Commons in downtown Glenwood Springs through February 3. Colorado has 20 state-certified Creative Districts. Colorado Mountain College and Carbondale Arts are curating a series of exhibitions that connect and promote artists from many of these districts. “Impressions In Ink” is the first in this series that features artists from the Carbondale Creative District, Steamboat Creates, Paonia Creative District, Crested Butte and others. Featured printmakers include Brian Colley, John Fellows, Penelope Greenwell, Reina Katzenberger, Nadine O’Brien, Ali O’Neal, Vanessa Porras, and Barbara Sanders.
The Creative District certification process focuses on defining specific geographic areas that can attract artists and creative entrepreneurs to a community, infuse new energy and innovation, and enhance economic and civic capital. The CMC ArtShare Gallery is at 815 Cooper Ave., 2nd floor, Glenwood Springs.
