Courtney Cotton is a professional artist, currently living and working in Denver, Colorado. She studied art and architecture at the University of South Carolina, Rhode Island School of Design and Queens College. An artist who is unafraid to express herself by giving visual expression to feeling; which can be seen in many of her paintings and collages. Other inspiration stems from travel, music, dance and by objects that give her a visceral reaction. Whatever the impulse the result is the fruition of a process, usually grounded in personal discipline that may be spontaneous and rapid or labored and introspective. What transpires ideally captures the inspiration and transforms it into an exuberant explosion or a contemplative and solemn stillness.
Window as metaphor, works two ways. Not only can others look inside, but windows offer the chance for one to look outside as well. The ‘window’ metaphor has a long career in the history of art and, in fact, in the evolution of the human perspective in general. It has been associated with the voyeuristic and inquisitive instincts of people. Above all, though, windows have permitted man to experience the essence of light, and imply interaction with the unknown and with infinity. "People are like stained glass windows.
"They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."

acrylics, straight edges, gesso, watercolor paper, gel medium, magazines etc.
Lisa’s paintings range from her trademark skeletons, to fantasy creatures and nudes. She lightens darker subject matters with vibrant colors and iridescent pigments that catch the light in a playful way. Sometimes pieces are carefully planned out but Luree also embraces the impromptu process – letting images form as she goes. She believes that letting creativity flow unobstructed allows an artist to tap the collective unconscious and draw archetypal symbolism into the art.Luree is also the founder of the ACEO (Art Cards Editions and Originals) movement which led to her winning eBay’s Community Hall of Fame Award.

Workshop: “Cabdoor Art”
Repurpose a Cabinet Door into a Painting to make trash into a treasure! A kitchen cabinet door makes a perfect substrate for painting. It already has a natural "frame". Many cabinet doors go straight to the trash in a remodel. I will teach you how to prepare the cabinet so you can paint your own design in watercolor. You will see my process, but YOU will decide what you wish to paint on your door. Bring ideas and a reference photo/s of what you'd like to paint, keeping in mind cabinet doors are typically long and narrow. You will apply gold leaf to the frame and how to mount hangers on the back for a ready to display piece of art! You be creating something special, you will be doing a small part to conserve waste and reduce our carbon footprint.

Josh Davy- Clay Houses
Josh Davy is the Executive Director of NEXT Gallery and an active member of Lakewood’s 40W. Art District. He knew from a very young age that he wanted to be an artist, in fact there was never a time when he imagined being anything else. He was fortunate enough to go to a small high school where I got individual attention and encouragement from teachers who cared about my success. He had access to an amazing ceramics program, and jewelry fabrication and casting. Almost 30 years later the skills he learned in high school are still cornerstones of his art practice. He is now a multi-media artist with a focus in ceramics, metalsmithing, and woodworking.
We will be using a slab building technique to create 3 dimensional buildings and relief sculptures of building façades using paper clay. Paper clay is superior for slab building because the paper fibers allow water to flow freely between each part of the clay, much like the capillary action that trees use to draw water from the soil and pass it through their fibrous system. Paper clay is quite forgiving, and successful joints are easily made with simple slip and score techniques. We will then explore the possibilities for cold finishes (painting) to transform the sculptures into more complex work.
I will bring some pre-rolled slabs that have become nearly leather-hard to create 3-dimensional sculptures and we will also use fresh clay to make relief sculptures.

Bob Coller Jewett -https://bobcollerjewett.com
CLASS LIMIT: 15
Bob Coller Jewett started making geometric photo collages in 1988 then transitioned to digital collages in 1997, which is his primary process in his Denver studio. As the manager of the Fine Art print department at Reed Art & Imaging 1994 to 2018, the entire process of film processing, scanning, digital assembly/optimization, printing, and even framing, added a solid knowledge base used in each of his collages today. And it all started from a darkroom mistake. Today, art fairs are the best place to find the work in person. bobcollerjewett.com lists a selection of art fairs, and gallery events.Collectors include: UCH Anschutz, Columbia College Chicago, and Ginny Williams Family Foundation.
