It's MASKS time! This Friday, April 1st 2022, the much-anticipated Masks exhibit/auction opens at the Museum of Art Fort Collins. The annual event is a wonderful opportunity to see the diverse styles and methods used by local artists who all begin with identical blank ceramic mask forms and transform them into works of art. I'm always excited to see my colleagues' creations for the Masks show!
“Light is a thing that cannot be reproduced, but must be
represented by something else – by color.”
Above are some of my progress photos as I created my 2022 Mask, from the blank ceramic form to the finished piece packaged for transport. The 3-D tree and most of the background is constructed with clumps of dried, colored paint left over from prior projects.
I named the finished artwork "Pieces of Light." To see more of my (larger) photos with descriptive captions, plus a video of the finished artwork, please visit
