Voices of the African Diaspora II

Presented by Chamber Orchestra of the Springs at First United Methodist Church

Feb 16, 2023

In keeping with its tradition of featuring under-performed works, the Chamber Orchestra explores the rich history of African-American orchestral music. Often intentionally excluded from the traditional canon, these incredible African American composers should be as familiar to you as Bach or Beethoven. This is a special, one-time performance - NOT a Subscription Series concert. Subscribers should secure your ticket today! The concert begins with a gleeful, playful overture by Scott Joplin. Then, we feature the incomparable Stephanie Ann Ball and GeDeane Graham, with Julia Perry’s Stabat Mater and William Grant Still’s From the Hearts of Women. The concert also features Joseph Schwantner’s New Morning for the World, a setting some of Martin Luther King Jr.’s most compelling oratory for orchestra, and we conclude with Florence Price’s compelling arrangement of the African American spiritual My Soul’s Been Anchored in the Lord. NOTE: For tickets to the Denver, CO production at the…

Bri McGrew is a well known favorite jewelry maker in Colorado Springs, who currently resides in Pueblo, CO. She is forever an artist in both her jewelry craft and sculptural work. “Sedimentary is an exploration of traditional materials progressing from my work as a jeweler. With sustainability as a core value of my studio practice, I source dead stock vintage chain, and rocks directly from miners and old collections, always attempting to make use of every scrap. Much of this work was built utilizing the remnants and inventory deemed unsuitable for use in jewelry. My process is often intuitive, beginning with a loose composition in mind. I find that most projects require flexibility, allowing for each material, color and shape to dictate the form taken as they meet. The Latin, “genius loci,” translates to, “the pervading spirit of a place.” This is perceived as the distinct way elements combine in any particular natural environment. The…

'I think I liked it better when I knew everything'

Presented by G44 Gallery at G44 Gallery

Feb 04 - Feb 25, 2023

I’ve been working on exploring my own history as an artist, looking at what I make now and how it relates to my past work. I’m mostly curious about what was left behind. Born in Denver in 1972, Michael Dowling spent much of his early life as a typical kid apart from being an obsessive drawer. It wasn’t until the age of 25, and after several years studying various subjects as well as working in many fields, that Michael started painting. With that late beginning, Dowling dove full in and began studying extensively. At 28, he decided to sell a burgeoning art sales company and moved to Florence, Italy to focus on painting. He has since returned to his native Denver where he lives and works and tries to raise three naughty kids. Michael is represented in Colorado by Leongallery, Colorado by G44, Colorado by BRDG project, Chicago by Studio…

Feb 04 - Feb 25, 2023

As Nietzsche (1886) notably writes, “if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.” This installation is an invitation to step into the abyss, into absence, into the ruins and remnants of what remains when everything else is asked to leave the room for a bit. You see, my heart broke open awhile ago — and a great and vast nothing spilled out, only silence, reverberations of a quiet despair, empty walls, and only a hollowness left to say — I have never been more afraid. I wanted (could do no other) than stand before you, stripped of jargon, of anything other than silence and emptiness and abyss and absence. I used what little I could, I used only what remained, the only tangible thing left: the body, if it could even be called such a thing. Is the body a presence or an absence?…

Feb 03 - Feb 25, 2023

In The Bridge Gallery: Positive space and negative space are basic concepts of making art.  It’s playing with spaces that appear open or closed and how they affect  design.  One does not exist without the other.  “Positive/Negative” is a show with the focus on these two elements. Invited artists included are Chris Alvarez, Betty Atherton, Deena Bennett, Jana Bussanich, Michael Cellan, Ruth Chandler, Julian Gallop, Christine Lawson, John Lawson, Marc Shereck, Darla Slee, Jeanne Steiner, Robin Wolfe. In The Commons Gallery: When you see images of ancient times, often you see mosaics because they stand the "test of time".  Paint and paper fade, but stone survives.  These Roman and Byzantine mosaics also give us a peek into life and leaders of the time Artist Pam Farris discovered a love for mosaics 10 years ago.  Over the years her mosaics have diverged into two categories:  historical and conceptual.  The historical mosaics she creates range…

PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE It is 1904 and big ideas and even bigger laughs are flying at the Parisian bar “Lapin Agile” when Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso meet for the first time.  The renowned scientist is about to transform physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter will soon set the art world afire with cubism, but tonight Pablo and Albert, whose egos are as big as their intellects, spar with the regulars and each other about art, science, inspiration, love, and the promises of the 20th century.  Steve Martin’s long-running off-Broadway comedy calls for an all-star cast and local actors Michael Lee, Colton Pratt, Miriam Roth, Anna Faye Hunter, Sean Verdu, Rachel Fey, Mike Miller, Julian Bucknall, and Isaiah Culling fit the bill beautifully. Throw in Mark Arnest on piano and some lively Can Can tunes and you have a wonderful evening of intelligent theatre. “Martin sends…

Mercedes (played by Jamie Galvan Cooper) is an outsider, and Tara (Jasmyn Madise) makes sure she knows it. When a high school production of The Crucible forces them together, tensions escalate into acts of bullying - both online and IRL. The Burn explores what happens to a teacher (Adam Stepan) and his students (including Sheridan Singer as Andi and McLain Murphy as Shauna) when a classroom conflict turns into an online witch hunt. Content warning: this show has adult content and language, including some fairly nasty bullying.

Please call ahead to confirm that Cultural Office staff are in the office. "I paint music. All my life I have painted expressions of gesture. Every touch of brush to paint and then to canvas involves gesture. Gesture is the purest form of expression, feeling, and communication. Gesture is the most important tool in my work as an artist. I have a form of synesthesia called Chromesthesia, which means I see sound in color, shape, and texture. I also have Auditory-Tactile synesthesia, which means I viscerally sense music, which creates feelings of expression and gesture in my bones. Gestures of our bodies express or emphasize an idea, sentiment, or attitude, and allows us to communicate without words. After studying ancient languages and practicing the artful formations of their alphabets, I have developed my own gestural language to help me express how I see and feel music. Alchemy is a way…

Since 2014, Otake has worked as a soloist and has directed her own projects in collaboration with other artists.
