POLARIS
Christopher Loving-Campos, Jessica Loving, Brianna Martray
January 12-March 26
FREE Opening Artist Reception: 5-7 p.m., Thursday, January 12

Non-representational paintings by Jessica Loving and Chris Loving- Campos will be joined by Brianna Martray’s organic, sculpted forms. All three artists focus on the gesture in its most elemental form; be it in the reaching, spire-like forms of Brianna’s, or in the rambling marks in paintings by Chris and Jessica. All work together explores this notion of skyward architecture rotating around one pivotal point — Polaris.

INTROSPECTIVE JOURNEY
Melanie Warsinske
January 12-March 26
FREE Opening Artist Reception: 5-7 p.m., Thursday, January 12

‘Introspective Journey’ is a series of paintings that have evolved from a personal need to create time and space. Deep within my consciousness, I see ‘light’ and ‘darkness’ vying for attention, I choose to dwell in the light. In my most peaceful and meditative state, I visualize soft gentle shapes and movements, almost ‘womb-like’ or ethereal. As in life, sometimes serenity is interrupted by challenge, which often plays out on my canvas. Introspective journey is the ebb and flow of coming back to tranquility and light.

HOME SWEET HOME: BUILDING LAKEWOOD IN THE 20TH CENTURY

If walls of local homes could talk, they would tell narratives one hundred years old of marble and brick creations housing farmers and summer guests. Visitors will learn architectural terms and investigate famous houses such as the Belmar Mansion and Molly Brown’s summer home, Avoca. Uncover the stories of the people who lived and loved in these historic houses.

LIGHTS, CAMERA, COLORADO! BUFFALO BILL AND THE BIG SCREEN
March 25-August 12
Opening Saturday, March 25 with free historic tours at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

“Buffalo Bill” Cody founded a Wild West show that performed throughout Colorado, the United States and Europe until 1913. The new technology of motion picture cameras captured the drama of this time period and influenced a whole new movie genre: the Western. Reflect on the 100th anniversary of Buffalo Bill’s death with a display of authentic Western movie posters and artwork, dialogue about diversity in the West and history of the “horsecapades” of Jefferson County’s Westernaires drill team.
