Exhibit: Arvada Center - Art of the State 2019

I'm beyond excited to reveal a new body of work during the Arvada Center for the Arts' Art of the State 2019 Exhibition. "The Arvada Center is proud to present Art of the State 2019 , the latest installment in our critically acclaimed Colorado artist exhibition. This juried exhibition showcases the quality, depth, and diversity of Colorado artists and is the follow-up to the very successful Art of the State 2013 , and Art of the State 2016. In its third iteration, Art of the State 2019 garnered 1,555 entries from 566 artists in a call for entry that was open to all Colorado artists utilizing all media. Jurors selected 154 pieces by 135 Colorado artists to be presented at the Arvada Center. With three art galleries covering over 10,000 square feet, the Center looks forward to hosting this immense celebration of local art in Colorado."

Art of the State 2019

The special project I'm introducing for the first time includes all hand-stitched objects. The Arvada Art of the State 2019 is exhibiting a body pillow from this new series. The Arvada Center did a beautiful job installing the show of 154 pieces of art across three galleries, and made a custom shelf that shows of the pillow with perfection. In this installation image you see the works of Terry Maker and Nicole Banowetz in the background.
