The Climbing Art Show is UP! Come look!

Jamie Givens finished installing the Alpine Styles climbing art show yesterday and it looks fantastic. There is art all over the museum and library walls, and we hope you all will have a chance to come visit while it is here—the show is up through January.  Artwork and styles vary from Renan Ozturk’s large mixed media paintings on canvas to Emilie Lee’s small Hudson River School-inspired oil paintings on paper, to Mike Tea’s giclee prints and Keith Svihovec’s gouache paintings on board, to Jamie’s finely wrought india ink drawings. All of it is evidence of the passion and skill of these artists, who not only embrace the subject of climbing, but also the heart and soul of creating art.  

Please come out and celebrate the opening of this exhibit, which just happens to be on the same night as the Mountaineering Museum‘s Thirsty Third Thursday party!  Tonight, 6-8:30pm at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden.

And don’t forget – the art is for sale and a portion of the proceeds benefits the Museum and the AAC Library!
