Spencer Lightfoot: “Feathers, Petals and Scales”
Artist Reception

Add to your calendar
Date: June 1, 6:00 pm
Location: Crested Butte Center for the Arts; 606 6th Street, Crested Butte, CO 81224
Details: Spencer Lightfoot’s surroundings greatly influence her work in both obvious and subtle ways. Since moving back to Colorado three years ago her focus has been on the plants and animals that surround her. She would have never guessed in a million years that she would be fascinated by painting chickens and fish. But she is. And there is no denying the almost overwhelming beauty of this part of the world … the trees, the flowers, the peaks, the views. She can’t help but be inspired. All of this is represented in her watercolor mosaics. Fracturing the images into abstract representations, she delights in finding the right palette that lays somewhere between technicolor and reality.

Opening Reception: Friday, June 1. 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Free
