This juried exhibition features drawings with subject matter relating to Boulder. Nineteen artists who are member of Boulder County Arts Alliance will have works in a variety of mediums on view and for sale. The term “drawing” is applied loosely. Artists were encouraged to submit works created by any kind of drafting implement. So in addition to works in traditional graphite and colored pencil, visitors will see paintings, watercolors and mixed media. The theme of Drawing a (Blank) in Boulder was deliberately open-ended, inviting artists to portray whatever is meaningful to them relating to our city. When these varied responses are brought together, we have an exhibition that includes Boulder’s natural beauty, historic landmarks, and vibrant people. Since 1966, Boulder County Arts Alliance has acted as a catalyst to incubate, stimulate and sustain a thriving arts community in Boulder County. To achieve this mission, BCAA ignites interest in the arts by promoting diverse art opportunities and supporting all performing, visual and emerging arts disciplines through grants, fiscal sponsorship, fellowships, an Arts Calendar and our Business of Arts Workshop series.
