 Artist’s Statement
Ron Gallegos is a non-objective [non representational] -abstract artist. My abstract paintings are gestural and convey a sense of movement and spontaneity.   I believe at the end of the day abstract art is about the passion and physical nature of creating the art.

Janet Strickler recently commissioned by DAM

Janet Strickler, local mixed-media artist and LAG member, was recently commissioned by the Asian Art department of the Denver Art Museum to create a mandala coloring page inspired by the Museum’s own Tibetan Hayagriva Sand Mandala.

The coloring page will become part of an interactive station where museum visitors will be able to color one, or take one home.  If you visit the DAM this autumn, make sure and stop in and check it out!
