The Western Colorado Center for the Arts engages with the Grand Valley community on several levels. In addition to educational programs and collaborations with local artists on exhibitions in-house, we provide a steady rotation of exhibits to other community institutions. Usually three months long and featuring work from the Art Center’s Permanent Collection, these exhibits brighten hallways and, hopefully, the days of those who pass by. They create an opportunity to spotlight acquisitions that may not receive attention otherwise and experiment with uncommon pairings and juxtapositions. Everyone should be able to enjoy the art histories that make up our collection. Below are the outreach exhibits currently on display:
Ardent Impressions: Work by Lillian Wyant
St. Mary’s Hospital (River section, blue hallway)
2635 N. 7th Street, Grand Junction, CO 81501
Artist Statement: Art has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My paintings are a reflection of those places and images that strike an emotional chord within me – nature, sunlight, animals, children, faces. Rather than photographic representation, I strive to create an expression of feeling—a feeling of reverence for the image I have been fortunate enough to view. Oil is my preferred medium as its fluid qualities allow me the freedom to paint with spontaneity and richness of color.
