Explore Boulder’s landscapes and vistas through the watercolor and oil works of Molly Davis, a local landscape painter. After the 2013 flood, Molly set out to paint every trail on the City of Boulder’s Open Space system as a visual documentary of the impact that this event had on the land. She completed 260 works in “plein aire” by hiking and backpacking hundreds of miles.
Boulder became the first city in the nation to tax itself to buy open space in 1967 and this project also became a way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Open Space in 2017. A four-color book has been produced of all the images – with dozens of interviews from Open Space advocates, their families, and citizens telling the history of protecting this amazing vision – which accompanies this show.
Opening Reception: October 26, 6:00-9:00pm
