Charles E. Burchfield: A Resounding Roar

May 4, 2018 - July 28, 2018 

Foothills Art Center presents Charles E. Burchfield: A Resounding Roar, which features watercolor paintings displaying the artist’s love and appreciation of various sounds of daily life and the works he made in response.

Early Burchfield works depict the sound of crickets as they chirp in the bushes around his childhood home. The resounding roar of a passing train or the delicate call of a bobolink could the inspiration for a series of works lasting decades. Later Burchfield works are inspired by his favorite composers Ludwig van Beethoven and Jean Sibelius.

Join the museum for a special evening performance when Virtuosity dancers express Charles E. Burchfield’s work through dance on June 7 at 6 p.m.

This exhibit is generously sponsored by Betsy A. Thorpe

Finding Home

April 20, 2018 - July 8, 2018

Housing has been a central political issue in the Denver Metro Area for over a decade. The explosive growth of Denver and the surrounding areas as a residential destination has caused turmoil in the housing market. FAC would like to spark conversation about this topic through the arts community. Invited artists will offer their unique perspective on the issue as Denver Metro residents.  Partnership with local government will increase the depth of insight into the issue and educational opportunities for visitors.

Thank you to our generous sponsor and all of our artists for making this show possible.
