About the Exhibit
“BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS 2015” includes eight artists living and working along the Front Range of Colorado: Tobias Fike, Denver; Megan Gafford, Boulder; Caitlin Goebel rei Perez, Boulder; Kristin Stransky, Denver; and Daisy Patton, Denver.
“BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS 2015” is the second biennial survey of emerging artists living and working along the Front Range of Colorado. Artists working in Colorado in 2015 are pushing and innovating the limits of contemporary art and practice as individuals and collaboratives. This group exhibition will feature new works in a wide variety of media, including performance, ceramics, photography, installation, painting and new media and will introduce our audience to some of the brightest artists working along the Front Range corridor today.
