Support Colorado ArtBeat

Memories in ContourRed River LinesExploring Balance Series 10Dear Friends,

I just wanted to let you know about a project I’ve been selected to participate in. It’s called Colorado ArtBeat and it’s a documentary film series profiling 8 visual artists living and working in Colorado. The producers, FuseMedia, are using a crowdfunding model to fund the series and I – along with the other 8 artists -have donated works of art to help make it happen.

Please go to the Indiegogo campaign: https://igg.me/at/coloradoartbeat.

Check it out, and see if you’d like to contribute or purchase one of my artworks (posted above) to make this film series a reality.  The campaign runs from November 1-December 1 so we have a limited time to raise the funds needed to produce the film.

About Your Donation:

If you decide to donate, please make sure to contribute in my name. The artworks or “perks,” will be delivered in January.

About Colorado ArtBeat:

It’s a documentary film series that explores the work, influences, process, and inspiration of 8 talented artists in a 10 to 15 minute film. The series will show on the Colorado ArtBeat website and social media channels, with the ultimate goal of having the series air on Rocky Mountain PBS.  In addition, the artist will be able to use the film for their own personal and professional purposes.

About FuseMedia:

FuseMedia is a video production company based in Aspen, Colorado.  This project is an outgrowth of a series of artists’ profiles that they did for Plum TV (an Aspen based TV Channel) 10 years ago for which they won regional Emmy nominations for cinematography and editing.

Michael Warren Contemporary (MWC) is pleased to present “The Line to Follow” with artwork by Sara Ransford.

The unique qualities of paper clay allow Ransford to explore disparate relationships by incorporating torn and fragile components ultimately representing the monumentality of even the most intimate, complex spaces. “I explore the natural world in my sculptural forms. I am fascinated by the complexity in nature, and how that complexity reflects itself in our own world. The forces of erosion, the aspect of time, traces of experiences recorded over eons, only to be changed in a single moment can create such vulnerability and duplicity in things we do not anticipate,” says Ransford.

She has been an artist in residence at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, CO and has also taught workshops there and across Colorado.

Colorado Clay Opening tonight 6:30-8:30, Foothills Art Center

Wonderful Exhibition curated by Doug Casebeer

January 25th-March 16th

 

 

 

Since its first juried ceramics exhibition in 1974, FAC has demonstrated its commitment to Colorado artists working in clay by presenting over 30 exhibitions that have focused on the medium.  Becky Guy, Colorado Clay Coordinator, describes a major change in the 2014 exhibition from those of previous years: “The 2014 Colorado Clay exhibition will differ from past shows by adding an invitational component to the traditional juried process. FAC has invited several highly accomplished Colorado artists who are doing exciting new things with clay to participate in the exhibition, alongside those artists who have been juried in.”
Invited artists include Bebe Alexander, Heather Mae Erickson, Sara Ransford, Martha Russo and Maynard Tischler

This year’s juror is Doug Casebeer, Chair of the Artists Residency Program and Artistic Director of Ceramics, Sculpture, Furniture Design & Woodworking at Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass, CO.
Juried artists include Julie Anderson and Gregory Grasso, Penney Bidwell, Mark Boulding, April Brooks, Sarah Christensen, Deborah Dell, Jay Dougan, Kim Ferrer, Robin Furuta, Jenny Gawronski, Kim Louise Glidden, Carla Kappa, Carol Kliger, Lynda Ladwig, Jamie Lang, Claudia Mastrobuono, Lauren Mayer, Claire McArdle, Sharon McCoy, Frank Nemick, April Noble, Mike Rand, Todd Redmond, Jerry Rhodes, Maura Rieman, Shelley Schreiber, Bob Smith, Stephanie Thomas, Rita Vali, Denise Whittaker-Hoar, and Steven Wood.
