Where—Roots Real Estate 220 Willow St. Suite 102 Fort Collins, CO 80524
From the artist—
"The work explores themes of life, death, ignorance, obliviousness and excessiveness through narrative depictions of childhood characters. Characters, which have for so long been portrayed as wholesome and moral beings, are now given the opportunity to participate in “less than desirable” activities. Through the use of watercolors, ink and acrylic, I create compositions which describe a playful, and often times, dark atmosphere. I look to develop a dialogue between children and characters and topics of single-mindedness and selfishness. My goal is to manifest a state of satire and irony, calling in to question what I believe to be the current state of “pop culture”."
In addition to great company and stimulating art, our own Laura Hoover will be serving up some delicious appetizers that you won't want to miss. Also, did we mention that Eric works at New Belgium? He's going to help keep us all hydrated.
