Eyes On Anthony McCall - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

This installment of Eyes On will feature London-born, New York-based artist Anthony McCall. Landscape for Fire presents five performers dressed in white set fire to pots of gasoline laid in a vast grid across an airfield in North Weald, England. The second in a larger suite of seven fire performances staged between 1972 and 1974, Landscape for Fire is Anthony McCall’s primary record of the series. Shifting configurations of light and dark unfold across a thirty-six-point grid, as the field of grass becomes a meadow of light.

(970) 224-1010 coordinator@c4fap.org

The Center is thrilled to present three exhibitions at the Carnegie Center for Creativity.  What these three exhibitions have in common is a contemporary take of traditional themes, Black and White, Abstract, and motherhood. Laura J. Bennett’s solo exhibition, Umbilicus, is a visual depiction of her life as both an artist and the mother of nine. She sculpts her own orbs from various materials and prints her own canvas backdrops. The backdrops are combined with collectibles and Bennett calls these sets, Mother Worlds.  Artists from around the country will be attending the reception and giving short artist talks beginning at 6:30 pm. Also in attendance will be the curator of the Black and White exhibition, Catherine Couturier of the Catherine Couturier gallery in Houston. Join us in celebrating art, artists, and the creative community.  Exhibition Dates | November 14 – December 15, 2018 Public + Artists’ Reception | December 7, 2018  Admission is always Free!
