Create Tomorrow Presents: Summer Youth Gallery

Create Tomorrow Presents: Summer Youth Gallery

The Create Tomorrow Mission:

Create Tomorrow was built on the belief that everybody has creativity waiting to be expressed, but aspiring young artists have a disadvantage in showing it, due to the lack of facilities inhibiting this in our community. This organization will provide a safe place for young artists to learn about collaboration and participating in a business, while showing their art to the community, among other work made by artists in a similar situation. Create Tomorrow longs to be the facility that bridges the gap between creativity and society. 

Artists 18 and under will be displaying their visual and literary artwork in the show. Some works will be for sale in the form of a silent auction! Come support the artists and the Make-A-Wish® Foundation! 

The Youth Gallery will be open June 12-26, 2016 from 11 am to 5 pm.

Special Events

As of now, we have two special events being planned during the show. These are the gallery reception and the closing show.

     The reception will take place on Sunday, June 19th from 2:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M at the Art Lab, Fort Collins. During the reception, we ask all artists to come. Parents and supporters are welcome throughout the time. We ask for donations of food and drinks to add to what we will have. There will be a Make-A-Wish® representative here, so anyone attending can talk to both the artists and the representative. Special donations will be accepted, as well as bids placed on the artwork. The pieces of art will not be given to the highest bidder until the closing show.

     The closing celebration will be on Sunday, June 26th from 2:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M at the Art Lab. We ask all bidders and artists to attend, as the highest bidders on each piece will be announced here. There will be snacks and drinks offered, but we also ask for attendees to bring light foods or drinks, if possible. A Make-A-Wish® representative will also attend, to talk with the guests. Special donations toward Make-A-Wish® and Create Tomorrow will be accepted and greatly appreciated!

     We hope to see you at the shows, as well as in the daily gallery!

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.

Aug 7th 5-9pm
Aug 8th 1-8pm
