Mixed Media by Tabitha Aaron 

Tabitha Benedict Aaron establishes a calming spiritual connection to nature with her latest collection “The Peace of Wild Things.” She believes that an intimate connection with nature enhances our lives and can put us at ease during a time when stress is a global epidemic and that nature connects us to the natural rhythm of life. Tabitha aims to create this emotional experience, engaging the viewer a little closer. 

Assemblage/Mixed Media/Sculpture by Michelle Lamb 

Multi-disciplinary artist Michelle Lamb of Littleton, Colorado, considers herself a maxed- rather than mixed-media artist, because she believes diversity keeps creativity fresh, exploration a must, and fuels the fire for reinvention. Lamb is a member of CORE New Art Space Gallery on 900 Santa Fe Drive in Denver and has a BFA from Colorado State University.

This body of work focuses on assemblages where Lamb skillfully manipulates and arranges found objects, allowing a determined amount of original patina, shape, texture or inherent iconography to provide the “plot” for her story. These objects are the “characters”, adding depth and weight to her narratives as Lamb prudently chooses whether to amplify them, or conversely, to alter and deconstruct their original context. 

Art Reception: Saturday February 2nd from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm in the Mesa Lab cafeteria.
