ARVADA - The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities' Art of the State 2016 started on Jan. 21 and will last until March 27.
The juried exhibition showcases the quality, depth, and diversity of Colorado artists. Art of the State 2016 is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Art of the State: A Juried Exhibition of Colorado held in 2013.
"Art of the State 2016 is a great follow-up to its 2013 predecessor," Collin Parson, Arvada Center exhibition manager and curator, said. "I continue to be amazed by the talent in this state as well as the creative scene's growth, and diversity of art. No one will be disappointed with this exhibition as there is something for everyone."
In its second iteration, Art of the State 2016 garnered 1,434 entries from 511 artists. Jurors Gwen Chanzit (Modern Art Curator, Denver Art Museum), Michael Chavez (Public Art Program Manager, Denver Arts & Venues) and Parson, selected 148 works by 124 artists to represent art in Colorado being created by both emerging and established artists.
The call for entry was open to all Colorado artists in all media.
All three of the Arvada Center's galleries, over 10,000 square feet, is devoted to this celebration of art in Colorado.
