LAURIE BETH ZUCKERMAN'S "SHAPES OF ART" ASSEMBLAGE AT FORT COLLINS MUSEUM OF ART

Laurie Beth Zuckerman contributed her painting and assemblage skills to the Fort Collins Museum of Art's "Shapes of Art" annual fundraiser and silent auction, which opened April 5 and continues through May 4, 2012. The museum's loyal supporters and the Northern Colorado community will bid on the artwork donated by more than 100 local artists who created unique versions of this "Shape" that honors the 100th anniversary of this historic downtown building.

Below are several of my favorite shapes in the exhibit by several of my artist colleagues, along with two installation photos of the museum. My talented husband, Tom Mathies assisted me with my shape by carving eight little birds for my flock representing the color palette of art. The top bird is metallic gold, and represents the zenith of art.

I'm intrigued by the form that was used by the artist. Such beautiful and varied pieces. Can you say where the form can be found.

The form of the Museum's classic windows was made specifically to celebrate the anniversary of this building. They are not available commercially. They were given free to any artist in the community who wanted to transform THE SHAPE into their personal work of art. The Shapes were each donated by the artist to the museum's auction.

Great Post Laurie-

There really are so many creative and fun solutions to transforming this window shape into artwork. I'm impressed by the show, and hope it brings in money for the Museum. Friday evening the silent auction ends with reception.
