Main Gallery: 
Front Range Contemporary Quilters | Complements to the Chef
In this Call for Entries challenge, FRCQ artists are invited to explore complementary colors as related to food and people. Food is grown, harvested, transported, purchased, prepared, cooked, served, and eaten. FRCQ artists are invited to explore any of these delicious stages. For example a backyard herb garden, a baby’s face after eating blueberries, a field of corn, a stunning supermarket display, a fancy restaurant setting, a family meal, or a simple cup of tea …. The interactions of complementary colors can offer another layer of expression to the already rich and diverse narratives of food and people.

The Anne Olsen Collection | From the RMQM Permanent Collection
RMQM is pleased to exhibit a new series of quilts recently added to its permanent collection from Anne Olsen. For years, Anne has methodically rescued orphan quilt blocks, dissembling and then reworking them to refine the color scheme or improve the piecing accuracy. Often salvaging fabric from other old blocks to complete a set. The blocks then have a second chance at life in a finished quilt (Quiltmaker magazine, Sept./Oct. 2003).

Northeast Gallery:
The Denise Labadie Solo Exhibit | Stone Portaits and Stonescapes

Denise makes contemporary art quilt portraits of very non-contemporary structures: megalithic Celtic stones and monoliths, and more recent (but still centuries old) monastic ruins. These stonescapes – stone circles, standing stones, dolmens, burial tombs, abandoned churches, forgotten cemeteries, and lost-in-history portals and passageways – embody both immense timelessness and physical presence while evoking emotional remembrances of human pasts largely forgotten. Prepare to be amazed!
