Laura Elm’s the Next Big Thing
Gallery Reception

Add to your calendar
Date: May 7, 5:00 pm-7:00pm
Continues Until:
Location: Center for the Arts Crested Butte
Details: In the Kinder-Padon Gallery, May 4 – 29. Opening reception Friday, May 7, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Large scale and small works highlight the interaction of visual variety in Laura Cooper Elm’s recent work. Included are paintings, photographs, digitally generated works and pottery. The pottery is strategical situated under the 2-dimensional pieces in still-life arrangements as if they were classical paintings. These works represent surprising connections that are not always apparent when seen singularly – as in one piece at a time; which often places them out of context of Elm’s work as an ever evolving, ever revolving continuum. The exhibition therefore is presented as one BIG whole, allowing the audience to see the space in its entirety as well as relying on them to engage in the connections it creates for them specifically and personally. The Next BIG Thing is about what goes left unsaid – the spaces between. The trick is in slowly bringing the details into greater focus. The details, and the smaller works provide commentary, like a tangential aside to the broader conversation or an asterisk to a paragraph.
