at The Art Base, Basalt, CO
I AM BECAUSE WE ARE
For the month of January 2024, the gallery becomes a public space for conversation and creativity without pressure. I am firmly committing to showing up each day to support both individual and collaborative art-making in a safe and welcoming environment.
This year’s installation focuses on what it takes for a community art center to thrive, and is a celebration of what we can achieve when people show up. As a product of the community that founded this art center, my work and this installation is in honor of my history with The Art Base, and the promise of its future
The west gallery wall displays a growing grid of small square canvas pieces made by visitors. The east wall shows larger pieces, including an 8’ x 12’ printed and painted mural collage from last year’s installation of art in process. A logbook of artifacts, stories, and images shared by participants is on display and printed out daily.
