35,000 years ago, man picked up some bones and charcoal off the ground and drew his first cave painting- only instead of painting a picture of himself, he painted animals. He watched the herds cross the plains and thought they were beautiful and magical, and retained this image in his mind and translated them on the cave walls with graceful and accurate curves. A new group exhibition titled “Animalia” at Abend Gallery in Colorado will showcase contemporary artists whose work has been influenced by animals, and takes a look at how we relate to them today.

The high gloss of the acrylic sheet complements the rich colors of the image to produce stunning results.

There are two different ways to mount your acrylic print.

Option #1 (Mounting Posts) – Attach your print to your wall with four aluminum mounting posts. The cylindrical cap of each mounting post can be removed, allowing you to thread a small screw along the center axis of the of post and into the wall. When you’re finished, simply reattached each cap, and you’re done. The mounting posts act as stand-offs and keep your print separated from the wall by 1″. All of the required mounting hardware (i.e. posts, screws, and wall anchors) is included with your print.

Option #2 (Hanging Wire) – With this option, your acrylic print is attached to a 1/4″ thick black board which has a wooden frame and hanging wire attached to the back. There are no metal mounting posts at the corners. Simply put a nail in your wall, hang your print from the hanging wire, and you’re done. Due to the thickness of the black board and mounting frame, your print is separated from the wall by 1.50″ .

Creatives, Snacks and Social Hours

The second Thursday of each month, the Salida Council For The Arts presents the Creative Mixer. All artists and artistic types are encouraged to attend and meet like-minded people, to share influences and news, to soak up fresh ideas, and to be inspired by the energy that makes Salida a center of support and expression.

This month’s Creative Mixer will be Thursday, Feb. 11 at 5:30 pm in the SteamPlant Paquette Gallery. The Mixer’s featured guest artist this month is Sue Ann Hum, whose wide-ranging exhibition, “Said I Am A Painter”, will be on display in the Paquette Gallery through February.

In this, her first solo exhibition in Chaffee County, viewers are invited to slow down and savor moments which have visually arrested and fascinated her. 

Featured musician is locally renowned guitarist/vocalist Red Tischer, who creatively blends flamenco/gypsy music with what he calls “techno chill” to increase audiences’ listening experience. 

Free hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will be available; as will the popular “soapbox” where anyone can stand up and make announcements of interest to the crowd.

Salida Council for the Arts is an all-volunteer organization that aims to facilitate community access to art grants, government and foundation funding. To support, become a member, or ask questions, contact them by clicking here.

The US is not known for the overall design quality of its state flags, with many being uninspired, easily confusable “seal on a bedsheet” designs.  Yet changing a state flag in order to improve its basic design is a very difficult task, so difficult there is only one good example: Colorado.

#gallery-0-41 { margin: auto; } #gallery-0-41 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-0-41 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-0-41 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

1911 – 1964

1964 – present

This is not to say that state flag designs don’t change, nor that change isn’t often motivated by a desire to improve an in-distinctive design.  But time and again this change is for the worse, often taking the form of writing the name of the state in LARGE ALL CAPITAL LETTERS across the front of the flag.

Why is this a problem? At a pragmatic level, writing on a flag very often illegible. When on a flag pole, either it’s hidden by folds when the flag is hanging limp, or it’s blurred by ripples when the flag is flying in the wind.  And when hung so that the flag doesn’t move (for example, indoors), if it’s placed so that the back of the flag is visible, the viewer is treated to a bunch of backwards text.

At a symbolic level, it’s a symptom of an underlying failure.  As Ted Kaye says, “If you need to write the name of what you’re representing on your flag, your symbolism has failed.”

Take a look at all these examples of state governments deciding that to address their flags’ failed symbolism, they need to put the state’s name on the flag.  (And these examples do not include state flags that have had the name on them from the beginning.)

A convoluted history, but the major downgrade happened when the state flag committee told Willie Kavanaugh Hocker to add ARKANSAS to the design.

A rare example of a big redesign in 1925 that technically involved removing writing from the flag, but the “46” wasn’t seen as the problem — the star on a red flag suggesting communism was.

A complex case, as the 1882 change was a big improvement, and the 1897 change a big downgrade (but because of unfortunate foreground and background colors, not the addition of text).

Vermont

This is bit of an outlier, as the word VERMONT has never been particularly prominent. Interesting also in that the design has been purposely downgraded twice, in 1804 and in 1923.  Is it not due for an upgrade as the pendulum swings again?
