Pepper taught the band to play, but it was 50 years ago that the Handweavers Guild of Boulder first met up to combine their handweaving powers. And back then, it was for handweavers only, leaving Boulder’s needlepoint community out in the cold.]]> <![CDATA[What can be done with what we throw away]]> Nick Cave can take a garish ceramic bird, and a kitschy ceramic fruit bowl, and a few strings of plastic beads, and put it all together in a way that makes a stunning, and beautiful, sculpture. There’s no breaking that equation down to make the math work on how ugly adds up to entrancing, but read the answer to the equation and it’s a valuable comment on the often overlooked kitsch in our lives.]]> <![CDATA[Is the Internet making us dumber?]]> Never has the rift between humanity and technology been so apparent as now, in the midst of the digital revolution, when technology is evolving at a more rapid pace than in any other time in history.

In fact, the professional stone balancer has made the phrase “as impossible as possible” the motto by which he creates. Most of his sculptures, which can often be found among the ripples of Boulder Creek, feature stones of varying shapes, sizes and textures balancing atop one another so methodically, so delicately, it appears as though a single breath could bring them tumbling down.]]> <![CDATA[Georgia O'Keeffe at the Denver Art Museum: Far from flowers]]> What O’Keeffe found, when she came to New Mexico, was a place where her study of line moved from the verticals of the New York City skyscrapers that championed America’s rise as an industrial power to the horizontal adobe structures and mesas of New Mexico — another American icon, but one much more about native people and ancient traditions than the rise of a new world superpower.]]> <![CDATA[Look]]> As part of Month of Photography 2015 and Boulder Arts Week, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art is hosting Bon Bon, a collaborative exhibit with Kristen Hatgi Sink and Jillian FitzMaurice.
