Bud Werner Memorial Library, Colorado Art Ranch and The Nature Conservancy’s Carpenter Ranch present “Artposia,” a public forum designed for people who appreciate literature, contemporary art and the multidisciplinary exploration of ideas, at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 21 in Library Hall.
Colorado Art Ranch is a nomadic arts organization founded on the belief that the arts are an agent for change. It travels to the Carpenter Ranch each September to sponsor the month long Art + Land/Water Residency for visual and literary artists from around the world.
Photographer and writer Tama Baldwin, visual artist Tatjana Jovancevic and multimedia artist Necole Zayatz are the artists in residence this month, and Monday’s talk is designed to promote conversations on how art and science intersect with land and water in the Yampa Valley, as well as showcase the work the artists have created while living on a working cattle ranch along the banks of the Yampa River.
