About the Exhibition
On January 19, 2018 MOA will debut INTERSECTING FORMATIONS, an exhibition featuring twelve collaborations with Colorado painter Craig Marshall Smith. The exhibition will open with a reception from 6 PM to 9 PM on January 19th at MOA's indoor gallery on the Second Floor of the Englewood Civic Center at 1000 Englewood Parkway, Englewood, CO. The event will feature hors d'oeuvres, libations and live music by Tin Brother. The opening reception is free and open to the public. The exhibit will be on display through March 30, 2018.
This exhibition is a result of Craig Marshall Smith's artist residency at the MOA studio in the fall of 2017. Smith teamed individually with eleven artists to produce artworks for this exhibition. Collaborating artists include: Amy Metier, Daniel House Kelly, Deborah Jang, Greg Watts, Gretchen Goetz, James Robie, Jennifer Meyerrose, John McEnroe, Mark Friday, Sharon Feder, and Brett Ganyard.
Collaborating artists include Smith's contemporaries, friends, former students, and mentors. This exhibit is one of Smith's final projects as he scales back his visual art career to focus on writing.
"This exhibition is quite unique in that each artwork is a direct response or shared experience with Craig Marshall Smith's paintings," said MOA CEO, Cynthia Madden Leitner. "We are delighted to be able to support one of Craig Marshall Smith's final visual art endeavors as he shifts his focus to writing."
In addition to the collaborative works, Smith created diptychs as tribute to late artists Richard Diebenkorn and Jan Stüssy by combining their techniques and his. Smith studied with both artists in his time as a student at UCLA.
FREE and Open to the public.
