Carbondale Arts offers a wide range of community events throughout the year from gallery openings, to social sketching to Mountain Fair and even opera! Almost all of our events are free and open to the public.
Now through Friday, April 28, 9am-5pm
Carbondale Arts & The 5Point Film Festival proudly present “The Mountains Are Calling” featuring work by artists Kelsey Brasseur, Jeremy Collins, Amy Martin, Kelly Peters, Sarah Uhl, and Carl Zoch. This body of work is an invitation from our public lands. It is a call from home, a beckoning to return to the places that have defined us and our relationship to the land. It is a provocative love letter from the lands that have captured us and pulled into a place again and again. It is a celebration of what lies beyond the daily landscape of our lives and what we unavoidably can not live without.
The opening reception took place as one of many inspiring events during 5Point’s 10th Adventure Film Festival in Carbondale last weekend. “The Mountains Are Calling” will be on display at Carbondale Arts’ R2 Gallery at The Launchpad from 9am to 5pm weekdays through April 28.
March through April, 2017
My photographs are an extension of a lifetime of study of the natural world. It is through photography that natures’ mystery and beauty are expressed. The subtle interplay of light, color, and shadow comprise these photos. I do not compose my photographs – they exist. They are the result of the intersection of time, place and light.
The expression of the natural world has been enhanced by both my formal study of it, and teaching about it. I have been trained as a professional Biologist. One has to learn to truly “see”, in order to understand. Researching rare plants and animals has only enhanced my skills at observation. Understanding the dynamic interplay of organisms, their evolution and life histories allows me to “see” with an understanding. Also integral is an ability to read the landscape. All of these factors precipitate out in my photography.
All photographs were shot with Kodak T-Max 100 film with a Nikon camera. All prints are from high resolution scans printed on archival material. Prints are available in editions of 100.
First Friday, May 5, from 6-8pm
Carbondale Arts is pleased to present an opening reception for two photography exhibitions at the R2 Gallery on First Friday, May 5, from 6-8pm.
Within & Without: Over the past couple years, Susan G. Drinker and her husband Dick Durrance has been prowling the streets and alleys of Carbondale with their iPhones, capturing unusual glimpses of our funky little town. Everyday items take on a new dimension when seen through the eyes of this world famous team of photographers.
Fresh Perceptions: Curator Nannette Weinhold teaches Roaring Fork High School and Middle School photography students to see directly what enters into the field of vision, a fresh perception occurs, focusing their attention on color, pattern and texture. As they begin to view the world in this way, the spectrum of life, in turn, opens up and expands.
