Summer 2018 Artists
Title: Plays well with Others
Inspiration: “Swirls of spring and the circle of life in doodle form. I was inspired by how springtime brings a whimsical inexplicable bounce to the people of Denver”
Title: Jam Session
Inspiration: “This piece is inspired by my Jam Session Line at Grace Gallery”
Title: Mile High City
Inspiration: “My inspiration comes from the Colorado flag, and the clouds are featured to represent the ‘high’ that comes from living in Colorado”
Title: Imagine Piano
Inspiration: “The lyrics of John Lennon’s song ‘Imagine’”
Title: Simetria de la Planta
Inspiration: “The inspiration of my piano is plant and flower based with a flower mandala as the focal point. I want my piano to convey the plant life cycle in an ornamental style while having lots of colors that pop and excite the eye.”
