This longstanding show spotlights the diversity and style Colorado Women Artists and is presented during National Women's History Month in March and throughout April. The 2008 national theme celebrates the accomplishments of women in visual art, and we join them in the celebration in by inviting you to see the visual art created by Colorado women today. For twenty years the exhibition has presented fine visual art in 2 and 3-dimensional form, and the 21st annual is no exception.
From quiet mountain scenes and classic still life.... to bold contemporary design and color, this year's exhibition celebrates the artist's vision and passion on display. Personal narratives written by the artist will accompany each object of art and will help viewers understand the process, insight or background of each artist behind the creation. Random Works - A Colorful Collection of Art explores art mediums and techniques that are centuries old, juxtaposed with objects using 21srt technology and mediums. The exhibition premieres young emerging artists and acknowledges those who have mastered their individual artistic technique and style through decades of devotion and discipline. Mediums include oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, bronze, photography, mixed media, pencil, found object assemblage, fiber and precious metals.

National Women's History Project -
To honor the originality, beauty, imagination, and multiple dimensions of women’s lives, we have chosen Women’s Art: Women’s Vision as the 2008 theme for National Women’s History Month.
The history of women and art is quintessential women’s history. It is the story of amazing women’s accomplishments acclaimed at the time but written out of history. Join us in ensuring that their accomplishments are never forgotten.
This year’s theme provides a special opportunity to discover and celebrate women’s visual arts in a variety of forms and mediums that help expand our perceptions of ourselves and each other.
