"At Delta Dental, we strongly believe that art inspires—creativity and imagination lie within all of us.  We are pleased to support these exhibits at Foothills Art Center and to enrich the lives in our local community.” says Marketing Director for Delta Dental of Colorado, Kathy Jacoby.

FAC artist members have been the foundation of the institution since 1968.  From the earliest years through the late 1980’s, Foothills Art Center featured art-work by members in an annual exhibition. Presenting over 70 works of art in a variety of media, Foothills is excited to feature works from their members from all over the United States. Juried by Foothills Art Centers’ exhibition staff, the selection highlights engaging and creative content along with the highest level of craftsmanship.

Engaging in the community is a point of pride for Foothills Art Center, so in addition to the Members’ Show, The Power of Process, A Jeffco Student Exhibition is a great way to see the variety of work from kids in kindergarten through 12th grade. "Our goal has always been to provide students with a professional atmosphere to exhibit their work," says Exhibitions manager, Eriq Hochuli. "The size restrictions are no more and emphasis is placed on the creative journey that students travel to create their work."
