This piece, INTESTINAL FLUE will be part of the Perspectives on Creation Art Show and Silent Auction May 2nd at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins. Here is more info about the show
For the finale of our 33rd season, the Larimer Chorale will perform Haydn’s masterpiece THE CREATION, a magnificent musical interpretation of the creation stories told in the books of Genesis and Psalms and John Milton’s Paradise Lost.
The performance will be enhanced by a visual perspective of creation-themed works by area artists, projected on stage during the concert to create a unique synthesis of the visual and musical arts in a glorious celebration of the natural world around us.
Join us prior to the show to view the work of area artists, who have submitted their best CREATIONS and will be offering them for sale.
The silent auction of this work, to benefit the Chorale, will be held online during the month of April as well as prior to the performance at the Lincoln Center.
With full chorus, orchestra and soloists

This is my entry for the Inspired Art show at the Space Gallery. The Inspired Art Project takes poems written by Denver's youth and asks local artists to create original works inspired by their words. All submitted and accepted pieces will be featured in the Inspired Art Show auction on April 29th, 2010 at the Space Gallery with proceeds going to support America SCORES Denver and Think 360 Arts. This project offers a new way to show the power and impact of the words of Denver students, and brings to life their creativity and imagination.
This piece is based on the poem "How it is to be a Floor" by Billy C.
How It Is To Be A Floor
I’m the floor of a house. Every time someone steps on me I laugh. But the people can’t hear me. Whenever they step on my belly I laugh hard. Sometimes when they step on my eye I get some dirt in it. But I love when they step on my back. When people step on my mouth I want to swallow them but I don’t.
By Billy C.
The event will be held on April 29, 2010 at the Space Gallery, 765 Santa Fe Drive, Denver.

This is one of the jurors, Michael O'Sullivan talking with an attendee to the opening reception which was held last week. Wish I could have been there, but, thanks to Ellyn Weiss' photography skills and the magical internet, I can be there virtually. (and, so can you, gentle reader)

Saturday Afternoon, I will be at the Garbage Garage Booth at the Putnam School of Art and ScienceScience Carnival from 11-3:00. We will be making recycled paper hats.
Now in its fifth year, the science carnival features booths with activities and displays by prominent local, state and federal organizations including Bird Olympics by Master Naturalists; the Hewlett Packard Boo Crew; Rocky Mountain Raptor Program; the Colorado State University Little Shop of Physics; CSU BSPM and Biology Departments; and the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station. In addition, the carnival will offer numerous hands-on fun and educational activities for children of all ages including live animals, science-themed games, food and prizes.
Visitors may also participate in a silent auction for various themed baskets assembled by students.
Admission is $2 per person and includes full access to all activities (food not included); children 5 and under are free.
Proceeds from the event will help send Putnam's fifth-graders to ECO week in the fall. Eighty percent of Putnam's students qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch program, making raising funds to assist students to attend ECO week critical. The Science Carnival provides a big boost to those efforts.
For more information, call Wendy Mosher, (970) 488-7744.
Saturday from 10-12 I will be at the Garbage Garage (at the Larimer County Landfill) teaching a workshop on how to make recycled Garden Flags. This workshop will show you how to make your own designs and print them on recycled fabric. You can sign up for the workshop by emailing Rose Watson at email@example.com or calling 498-5772 or 498-5775.
Come by my studio at The Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art to Check out the new work and say "Hi". FCMOCA will be hosting the opening of "The Looking Glass", photographs by Lynn Goldsmith in the Loft Gallery. Old Town is also hosting Great Plates this month, so if you can bear the crowds, it should be a nice night downtown. Hope to see you around!
