There are many things hidden from us. Finding the way to reveal them is what interests me. These images are attempt to trigger viewer’s exploration of hidden by intentionally covering objects and then emphasizing the color and texture visible in halfway unwrapped objects.

The in-gallery exhibition will take place January 14 through February 11; the opening reception will be Friday, January 14. The exhibition page currently shows a list of the names of the artists as well as Vardan’s image, Still Life with Tulip and Oranges:

3 Square Art is the newest creative art center in Fort Collins.
