Getting to Know the Vermilion Cliffs Through Art
May Cheney and Sheila Kollasch
November 10 - December 9
An exhibit of drawings and paintings reflecting the artists' adventures in the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. Cheney's representational style reflects her background as a medical illustrator, observing form and detail to bring a deeper understanding of her chosen subjects. Through her paintings, Kollasch shares with the viewer the exhilaration and joy she finds in the desert landscape.
Join the artists, along with musician Nick Newberry, for a special Science Cafe from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8. Cheney and Kollasch will discuss their experiences exploring the Vermilion Cliffs plateau. Newberry will play "Six Vermilion Pieces," a collection of his original orchestral compositions inspired by the Vermilion Cliffs and Plateau.
