Throughout history artists have captured food in their works, intertwining a seemingly mundane human experience with discussions of production and consumption, waste and greed. Though food is a nutritional necessity, its significance extends beyond mere survival, exerting significant influence on our emotional and social connections. This exhibition explores the intricate links between politics and the food industry, influencing what we eat and how much, as well as our attitudes to nutrition. With an international supply chain that contains enough to feed everyone in the USA and UK nearly twice over, Serving Gluttony considers the unequal distribution of food, challenges of waste management, and big cities’ contributions to climate change.

 

The exhibition forms part of Voices, an ideas-driven online programme intended to spark critical conversations about art and culture, foreground new perspectives and promote curiosity. At its heart is a social mission, providing a dynamic platform for international artists grappling with the important social, political and environmental issues of our time.

In a new venture, the Artnauts are teaming up with Sunflower Seeds Ukraine, Broomfield Rotary and Fairview High School to revamp spent solar panels into working cell phone chargers. In the past year, 35 panels have been shipped to schools, hospitals, and defense units in the Ukraine which allow for communication to continue during blackouts. 

 

Artwork from our members mingle with community sentiments that bring hope and support to a nation that needs to know that the world has not forgotten what they are enduring. “Art Not As Usual” is being shared and viewed as people wait 4 hours for their phones to charge.

DARIA : Denver Art Review Inquiry + Analysis

Review of “Made in Colorado” Exhibition by Laura I. Miller

Art Magazine

“The portion of the exhibition at CU Denver Experience Gallery features 12 artists working in sculpture, video, photography, textile, and paint. In her oil painting Fair Game, Melissa Furness tangles with the untamable nature of weeds. A dense thicket of black and white overgrowth in the foreground contrasts with a brightly-colored floral wallpaper in the background. Fairies, imaginary animals, and an anatomical heart are entwined with the thicket, suggesting a struggle, but also the inescapable dichotomies of light and dark, chaos and control. The gothic ethos of this painting encapsulates the modern tug-of-war between saving and destroying nature.”
