A Brush with the Outdoors is an art exhibit and sale featuring five women painters; Leslie Allen, Jeanne Echternach, Debby McAllister, Jennifer Riefenberg and Janice Wright.
These accomplished painters share their love of the great outdoors through their artwork. Colorado’s natural beauty provides much inspiration for these artists. Recognizing that photographs rarely capture what the human eye can see, all five painters take their easels outdoors to capture the nuanced detail that nature offers. Their work has a realism that cannot be found in a photograph, but must be felt in the heart through experience.
The Five Artists’ show will hang at the Gallery1874 in Olde Town, Arvada from February 28th to April 30th, 2018. The gallery is housed in one of the oldest buildings in Arvada and was recently renovated in 2016 to feature hand-painted gold ceilings and Swarovski Crystal chandeliers. A reception will be held during Olde Town Arvada’s First Friday, March 2 from 5 – 8 pm. All of the artists will be in attendance to answer questions about their work. The gallery is located at 5665 Olde Wadsworth Blvd in Arvada, CO. This event is free and open to the public.
