Steel City Art Works
“Wood, Weaving and the Written Word”
at Steel City Art Works in February
Steel City Art Works will host an opening reception of “Wood, Weaving and the Written Word” on First Friday Art Walk, Feb. 7, 5 to 8 p.m., 216 S. Union Ave., Pueblo. Visit and chat with the many artists who will be there to show their new works and answer any questions you have about their processes—or just art itself. The show will hang all month.
Featured artists this month are poet Kyle Laws, who will showcase her “Apocalypse of the Snare Drum” that has at its core a seven-part poem written to a percussion performance by Ron Coulter at Blo Back Gallery in Pueblo. The book's fabric cover is painted and hand-sewn by fiber artist Tara Matthews with a matching box. Matthews creates bound journals, scarves and other wearable items. Wood turner Bob Sweeney will feature his bowls and vases, many made with Colorado woods, including beetle kill pine, many with elaborate colorful etchings.
In addition, there will be a free drawing for a beautiful $200 value wood-turned bowl by Bob Sweeney. Must be present to win at the time of drawing Feb. 7th at 6:30pm.
