2015 SUMMER SERIES | Featured Artists & Conversations

Ryan Trecartin & Lizzie Fitch
Schermer Meeting Hall
Free. Public Invited.
RSVP Required – 970/923-3181 or

Ryan Trecartin
Ryan Trecartin’s range of work proposes a fundamental shift in our understanding of culture, disposing of hierarchies that have worked to define position in culture, and offering in their place an ever-expanding set of possibilities from which to draw.

Lizzie Fitch
Lizzie Fitch is an artist whose work explores the construction of character and form in persons, networks and things. Industrial fabrication, commercial goods, skin molds, carpentry and digital images are combined and manipulated into sculpted forms that put into action notions of beauty, utility, death and post-human expression. Traversing the fields of recreation, productivity and survival alongside the affective surfaces of the body, her work maps a terrain of human potential.

Fanny Hill, Snowmass Mountain
Free. Public Invited.

Feufollet is Americana at its finest—reverential but wholly nonconformist. The young and vibrant Southwest Louisiana band takes Cajun, honky-tonk, and string-band music as their starting point, and keeps an open mind about where their song craft will lead them. On Two Universes, their first studio album in over five years, Feufollet proves their Cajun roots don’t define them as much as propel them forward; whispers of the swamp and its time-honored waltzes trigger a modern and broad musical imagination, one that finds equal expression in blues, old-time, country ballads, rock’n’roll, all for the sake of the song.
