DECEMBER FIRST FRIDAY | DECEMBER 2, 2016 | 5 pm to 8 pm


Cottonwood Center for the Arts is proud to present three new exhibits for the month of December: The Soul of San Luis, FINE | Makers & Artisans, Pikes Peak Arts Council Member Show.

PPAC and Cottonwood will team up for December First Friday with a reception to meet the artists, open studios as well as a special performance by 25-year-old Olympic gymnast Pavel Bulowski.

Soul of San Luis features the works of three Colorado artists with deep ties to the state’s historic valley: Peter Marchand, Josie Lobato and Marc Shereck. This is a more expansive exhibit of an original show that hung this year at UCCS. Soul will feature Lobato’s colchas, wool-embroidered coverlets, depict life in the San Luis Valley, from the sacred aspects, such as the journey of the Penitentes; to the mundane, such as harvests.

FINE is Cottonwood’s next call for entry show, and displays work by makers and artisans for the holiday season.

Last, but not least, the PPAC Member Show features a variety of pieces from artists including: Cymon Padilla, Kris Saxton, Claire Swinford, Meredith Ann and others. 

December events at Cottonwood are made possible by Griffis/Blessing, Inc.
