Vibrant Femmes Opening Reception

Join us as a part of Boulder Arts Week on April 7th, from 7PM10PM, for the opening of the Vibrant Femmes Show!

Vibrant Femmes: Femmeral focuses on the ephemeral nature of life, natural and human, and the interwoven symbiotic way in which we interact with our environment and the ways in which our environment can shape our experience. Femmeral showcases the figurative works of 4 artists who, in their own ways, depict the fragile, ever-changing core of existence on this planet.

This exhibition will feature works from Artists Liz Quan, Stella Maria Baer, Julia Lunk, and Marisa Aragón Ware. We’ll have live painting, live music with DJ Mimi Masala and mini-performances. Last year’s event was an incredible showing, celebrating brilliant female creators. Come see what this year’s Artists have in store for us.
