Featuring work by Caleb Cole, Zackary Drucker, Ervin A. Johnson, Laurence Rasti, and Krista Wortendyke
At the heart of every political and social movement is a question about who deserves to have power and control, whether over territory, access, rights, or freedoms. Around the world, we are witnessing struggles connected to race, sexuality, gender, and class. The artists in this exhibition ask questions about who has agency and in what situations, working from their own experiences within these complex social and political forces.

Dave Jordano | Detroit: UnBroken Down | Photography Exhibition

Fri, Feb 5, 2016 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Center for Fine Art Photography

400 North College Avenue
Fort Collins CO 80524

‘Detroit is my hometown. As a child growing up, my father, who worked all his life for General Motors, used to joke and say that we had motor oil in our veins. Even after all these years of absence I still believe there is some small truth to what he said.

These photographs are my reaction to all the negative press that Detroit has had to endure over the past several years…. I began looking at the various neighborhoods within the city and the people who live within them. This human condition, while troubled, struggling, and coping with the harsh reality of living in a post-industrial city that has fallen on the hardest of times, does thrive, and demonstrates that Detroit is not the city of death and decay that everyone was reporting in the media, but one that shows signs of human activity and movement.

My hope is that this work will convey in many ways that Detroit is a city made up of many small communities, all building a way of life through perseverance, hope, and sheer determination. A city clinging to the vanished ideals of an urban oasis that once hailed itself as one of the most beautiful and prosperous cities in America, at one time a model city for all others to follow, but one which has now fallen from grace.

This personal project is not about what’s been destroyed, but more importantly about what’s been left behind and those who are left to cope with it.’

Event is in side gallery until February 27, 2016.

Art galleries and museums flourish in Downtown Fort Collins!

Experience paintings, sculptures, exhibits, photos, and more, with many of the gallery owners on hand to share their expertise (and sometimes, a snack!) with the crowds that stroll the city streets on self-guided gallery tours.

Portraits 2016 Gallery Opening

Fri, Feb 5, 2016 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Center for Fine Art Photography

400 North College Avenue
Fort Collins CO 80524

Portraits 2016 is an annual exhibition highlighting artists from around the globe and their interpretation of “Portraits”. A portrait is a visual representation that portrays the likeness of a person, place, animal, or object. Portraiture has a long history in many mediums of art, not only photography. Artists are often drawn to a photographic portrait’s ability to capture a person’s character in a moment either candidly or with careful planning. Artist Marsha Guggenheim captured beautiful patterned light shining while her subject is lost in thought. Her subject doesn’t feel posed or staged; it is a true expression of the subject at that moment. While other photographers design a portrait to tell a story, such as JRicardo Rodrigues’ dramatic light in XVIII Century Project No. 2. Looking into each of these portraits creates a feeling of being with the subject, of experiencing that person’s life and feelings, and imagining their story. Join us in exploring this spectacular expression of portraits, in the Main Gallery until February 20, 2016. Always Free, public welcome.
