MORart event @ Museum of the Rockies

The Museum of the Rockies will be hosting its fourth annual MORart event in honor of all the artists who have donated their art to the Wine Classic this year. MORart, to be held on Thursday, June 2, from 7–9:30 p.m. in the Museum’s newly renovated lobby, will showcase the artists’ work and provide an opportunity to mingle with the artists themselves. Hors d’œuvres will be catered by the Emerson Grill with a no-host bar, and raffle tickets with prizes including experiences with the artists will be for sale for $1. Tickets for MORart are on sale now and are $10 for members and $15 for non-members.

“Each artist gets the opportunity to not only showcase their donated piece that will be auctioned at the Wine Classic on Saturday, July 16th, but to demonstrate their art processes, talk with event guests about their progression as an artist and selling other pieces from their collection,” said Robin Chopus, Wine Classic Co-Chair.

This year’s event will feature Honorary Artist Gennie DeWeese, a true pioneer and matriarch in every sense of the word. DeWeese has received national recognition and her work has become widely collected. Primarily an oil painter, DeWeese also worked in cattle markers, paint sticks and oil sticks, as well as drawing and woodcut printmaking, monoprints and lithographs.  Painting almost daily until she passed away at the age of 86 in 2007, Gennie’s work ethic, contagious enthusiasm and warmth is remembered just as well as her talent and passion for art.

In addition, artists including the late Freeman Butts–Painter, Tina DeWeese–Wire Sculptor, Ray Campeau–Painter, Laurel Hatch–Painter, John Juracek–Photographer, Sally Horner O’Neill–Jeweler, Stacey Herries–Painter, Russ Fry–Furniture Maker, Kirsten Kainz–Painter, Tom Thornton–Painter and Sculptor, Barb Schwartz Karst–Painter, Julie Oriet–Painter, Tyler Kimball–Glass Artist and Diane Ross–Furniture Maker, will be on hand to display their art and mingle with the attendees.
