The Blue Flower

Thu, Sep 22, 2016 through Sun, Oct 16, 2016 12:00 am

Bas Bleu Theatre Company

401 Pine St
Fort Collins CO 80521

Bas Bleu is delighted to present the Rocky Mountain premiere of the musical The Blue Flower to kick off its 25th anniversary season. The Blue Flower weaves together video, cabaret, dance, and humor into a dreamlike journey through the imagination of an artist – based on the great painter Max Beckmann – as his mind’s eye is thrust back to the maelstrom of events that brought him to that point: Paris in the Belle Époque, the trenches of the First World War, the Cabaret Voltaire, Berlin during the Weimar Republic. The circle of revolutionary artists and lovers who join him on his phantasmagorical journey are inspired by the artists Franz Marc and Hannah Hoech and Marie Curie. An eight piece band – complete with pedal steel – performs a score that brings Kurt Weill tete-a-tete with Hank Williams (“sturm n’ twang”).

Nowhere Near Art Exhibition

Wed, Sep 28, 2016 through Sat, Oct 1, 2016 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Community Creative Center

200 Mathews Street
Fort Collins CO 80524

Ruminate Magazine presents the work of fiber artist Sandra J. Hopkins and painter Richard Terrell, September 28th through October 1st, at the Fort Collins Community Creative Center in “Nowhere Near,” a show honoring the vast landscapes of art, story, and personal experience. Curated by local Fort Collins artist Scott Laumann, the exhibit celebrates the 40th issue of Ruminate Magazine and culminates in a retreat held October 1st.

Central to the exhibit is the idea of healing. Sandra J. Hopkins is a fiber artist who lives in Northern Colorado. Ten years ago she traded paint brushes for fabric and began using her grandmother’s sewing machine to process and ultimately heal from personal trauma. As part of the Ruminate Retreat on October 1st, Sandra will lead a workshop that explores participant stories through reclaimed fabric remnants, restoring disconnected, ordinary histories to wholeness.

Also joining the exhibit is Richard Terrell, professor emeritus of fine arts and humanities at Doane College, Crete, Nebraska and previous director of Ad Lib, a Colorado-based retreat for the arts. His midwestern landscapes tell the story of space, isolation, and community, facilitating a conversation around art and faith.
Ruminate Magazine is one of the few literary magazines to integrate full color visual art in its publication. Editor-in-Chief Brianna Van Dyke says of her work with Ruminate “Our days are often busy and loud, yet we feel empty and asleep. As artists, we’re so lucky that we get to be the guides that help people heal and live more fully.”

The exhibit is free and open to the public—Wednesday, September 28th through Saturday, October 1st from noon to 6—with original artwork, signed prints, and issues of Ruminate Magazine available for purchase. Proceeds will benefit Ruminate, Fort Collins’ non-profit magazine for readers that embrace reflection, contemplation, and mindfulness through poetry, prose, and visual art. With two Pushcart Prizes, Ruminate is a cornerstone of the spiritual community, engaging life and faith in a captivating way, and publishing emerging and established artists from diverse backgrounds. For more information, visit ruminatemagazine.com.

The Community Creative Center (CCC) at 200 Mathews St., in the Historic Carnegie Building, is owned and operated by the City of Fort Collins and is managed by the Lincoln Center. Exhibits and performances are presented by independent artists and performers. Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays, noon to 6pm.
