Boulder…

On Nov. 4, from 5 to 10 p.m., the opening reception for Objects and Abstractions will be held at Mr. Pool Gallery in Boulder. Curated by Terry Seidel, Sally Elliott, and Jane Dalrymple-Hollo and a part of the HOVAB series, this exhibit is unique in its selections as well as its location. Terry Seidel is a local artist who owns and runs Mr. Pool, a pool, spa and water business. His space also hosts an art gallery that continuously shows work by a variety of artists nationwide. Seidel himself works in concrete and one of his pieces is currently on display at The Dairy Arts Center (above).

Denver…

Artist Bonnie Ferrill Roman is hosting a Colorado Women Artists Photo Shoot at the Denver Art Museum’s Acoma Plaza on Sunday, Oct. 30. After receiving a good deal of interest online in response to a similar event in  L.A., Roman decided to make one happen in person in Denver. Are you a woman in Colorado who makes art? You qualify! Show up at 11 a.m. for the hour-long photo shoot. Afterwards: lunch? networking? adventure? You decide. Visit the Colorado Women Artists Photo Facebook page for more details.

…and the middle of nowhere.

It’s only accessible by boat or seaplane. It’s 70 miles from Key West, Florida. And for one month during the year, a pair of artists in residence lives and works at Dry Tortugas National Park. On Loggerhead Key, filmmakers Carter McCormick and Paula Sprenger lived for a month while filming the island’s ecosystems. Out of nearly 400 applicants, these two got to experience the dream of living on a tropical island, with no connection to the rest of the world, internet or otherwise. Some of their work will be donated to the National Parks Collection.
