Good News Friday!

You probably already know that many of the individuals we serve are talented artists. If you haven’t had a chance to see some of the fantastic art created by Imagine! artists, there are several upcoming opportunities to do so.

Teresa Christoff, a local Boulder artist (seen in the photo to the right) who receives services from Imagine!, has an art display at the Java Stop Coffee House in Longmont, which will run until August 29. And tomorrow, August 7, from noon until 2 PM, Teresa will be on hand at a reception marking her art show. If you have a chance, be sure to drop by and say “hi” and congratulate her! You can learn a little more about Teresa and her art by clicking here.

Starting Friday, September 10, Java Stop Coffee House will be displaying works of art created by students in Imagine!’s C.O.R.E./Labor Source. There will be an opening reception from 4 to 6 PM. The event is free.

Students in the C.O.R.E./Labor Source art classes will stay in the spotlight by taking part in the Open Arts Fall Artist Tour. They will have a piece (a 40"x40" re-creation of Imagine!’s Dream Rocket Quilt) on display at the tour’s opening reception, October 1, at the Boulder Public Library Main Branch from 6 to 8 PM. After this opening, during the first two Saturdays in October (Oct. 2 and 9) the Open Studios Tour will include the Boulder C.O.R.E./Labor Source headquarters (5412 Western Avenue), where Imagine! artists will be doing live art demos for the public.

Last, but certainly not least, on Friday, November 5, participants in C.O.R.E./Labor Source programs will be displaying their many talents at a gallery show and performance. The gallery reception will begin at 5 PM, with the performance starting at 7 pm. The event will take place at The Dairy Center for the Arts.

Please take advantage of the opportunity to attend one or more of these events. I think you’ll find it well worth your time to see what kind of artistic creations the folks we serve can produce if given the opportunity.
