January 2018 Temporary Art Exhibits
Painting: 1960 Studebaker by Dick Gallagher
Each month, the South Suburban Public Art Committee selects three local artists to display their work at three recreation centers and selects one artist quarterly for an exhibit at the Lone Tree Golf Club & Hotel. Art displays at these facilities are intended to support and promote South Suburban's mission to enrich the lives of all its residents and encourage a legacy of art to be enjoyed and appreciated.
These temporary art exhibits are also a chance to showcase local artists. The artists exhibiting in January are:
Name: Rosanne Juergens
Collection: Rosanne’s exhibition The Gritty and the Pretty juxtaposes beautiful landscapes with images of weight room equipment and vehicles. She sees gritty as what builds the muscles that allow us to get outside and enjoy the pretty of nature.
On display at: Buck Recreation Center, January 1 – 31, 2018
Name: Paint Box Guild
Collection: This Littleton guild of 40 active artists was established in 1973 by Lucille Grisham. It encourages beginning and advanced artists. It also provides a forum for idea exchanges and locates venues for exhibition. The Paint Box Guild exhibit strives to display originality through the use of various compositions and designs.
On display at: Lone Tree Recreation Center, January 1 – 31, 2018
Name: Cecil Jacobson
Medium: Wood carvings
Collection: Cecil's pieces are carved in the round, relief, chip carving and by other methods. He uses hand tools and many of his knives and chisels he's made on his own. His first pocket knife was given to him by his father when he was 7 years old during the Depression which started his love of woodcarving. He and his brothers made their own toys as youngsters on their farm and he improved his skill by carving every figure in a woodcarving book he bought while teaching some 50 years ago. He still has many of the pieces.
On display at: Goodson Recreation Center, January 1 – 31, 2018
Name: Dick Gallagher
Collection: The exhibit titled Inked Car Art displays vintage cars and trucks from many manufacturers in street scenes or individually in gouache paint and India ink. Inherent in the street scenes are small town images from Dick’s youth.
