Good News Friday!

Many of you who have been associated with Imagine! over the years are probably familiar with Bob, a long time recipient of our services. Bob has also had a long time interest in string, and, with the guidance of Imagine! CORE/Labor Source (CLS) art teachers, Bob has turned that interest into a creative outlet. Bob creates intricate and intriguing works of art using string. Some of his string sculpture pieces are currently being displayed at Imagine!’s Coal Creek office. That's Bob posing with his work in the picture below.

Now, an even broader audience will be able to appreciate Bob’s unique artwork. CLS Art Instructor Alethea Chorey has arranged with Two Hands Paperie to have Bob participate in the shop’s Visiting Artist Series. Bob will be the visiting artist at the Two Hands Paperie store on Friday, September 7, 2012 from 1:00 – 2:30 PM, showing off his work while Alethea helps explain the process.

Two Hands Paperie, located at 803 Pearl Street in Boulder, has a stated goal of providing “an eclectic variety of hand-made journals and cards, books, art supplies, decorative paper, and unique gifts from around the world.” I want to personally thank the store for supporting Bob and highlighting his extraordinary work.

I hope you are able to attend this exciting event.
