Celebrated professional tango dancers open Boulder Tango Studio

By Camilla Sterne
To hear a person talk about tango is to witness a blushing love affair. They’ll speak of the heart, of an unspoken connection between partners, of passion; they might even go so far as to call it an addiction. To hear tango dancers describe their art is to be a voyeur of smoldering intimacy, one that is only understood by those who are in on the secret.

By Elizabeth Miller
The drawing shows a purple bird’s nest holding five eggs, each a different color, balanced on the limb of a tree. Filling the sky around the tree branches is a crowd of birds, open V shapes drawn in orange pastel. It’s a simple drawing, but a big story.

O’Keeffe exhibition shows her place in the world beyond petals, into landscapes, spiritual objects and early expressionism

By Elizabeth Miller
