Coming up quickly on a few Saturdays this month is a great opportunity for artists to get some art out on display in the square of downtown Fort Collins and to earn some extra cash.

With an accepted concept, you could take part in actively painting either a chair or flower pot in the Square during some busy times. You can be as creative as you would like — the only restrictions are that the finished product has to be appropriate for a family-friendly environment and that theitem can’t be “branded” with any sort of business/product names/advertising. Artists can earn $175 per chair or set of flower pots (includes materials).

August 8th: Set of flower pots
August 15th: Chair or set of flower pots
August 29th: Chair

To submit your general concepts (high-level) name, address, and availability within the following dates, or for more information, please contact Jennifer Hensley at jhensley@fcgov.com, or 970.419. 4378.

You’ve seen those empty store fronts as you’ve wandered the streets of Old Town Fort Collins. They look like buildings that need some energy to make them happy again. That’s what Art Lab Fort Collins is all about. We’re temporarily filling those wonderful buildings with art, innovation, music, smiling faces until a new tenant comes along. When a new tenant decides to move in, we just move on to the next empty space.

Watch the empty store fronts for something new in Old Town.

Colorful Inspiration by Michelle Gehret

Colors, like feathers, follow the changes of the emotions.”  Pablo Picasso

Michelle is an abstract artist who uses color to express her inspiration and emotions.  Her work captures beautiful moments in nature and the light and spirit in those around her.  Michelle primarily uses acrylic paints, but also explores different mediums, canvases, and tools to create unique textures, layers, and beautiful color combinations.  The light of the human spirit is expressed in bold colors and textures that reflect the beauty of the soul.  Living in Colorado, the beauty of the landscapes is depicted through the movements and placement of color on the canvas. There will be free appetizers and admission is FREE! 

The show runs August 7-8, 14-15.
