Expressions artists at work

by Julius Lisi


I can remember moving to Fort Collins 20 years ago and taking part in the monthly

First Friday Art Walks. You could go from gallery to gallery, about every half block in Old

Town, looking at paintings and sculpture, snacking on nice food spreads and the occasional

glass of wine, meeting and talking to the artists. It was exciting (if you like art) and fun. Most of

those galleries have closed now, as culture has moved off the street and onto the internet. But

First Friday is still a thing and still worthwhile.

You can capture some of that old excitement by attending the 4th annual Expressions

Art Exhibit at the Carnegie Center for Creativity (200 Mathews St.) for the Old Town First

Friday Art Walk on Aug. 2nd. The exhibit will feature ten of the best artists and artisans in

Northern Colorado. An artist’s reception runs from 6 to 9 pm and will offer a generous food

spread, free wine, live music and some damn good art along with the artists who created it.

Besides the art on display, there will also be bins of art (originals and reproductions) you can

browse through.

If you can’t make it to the Expressions reception at the Carnegie on Aug 2nd, there will

also be an Open House there on Saturday, July 27th. Many of the artists will be there, and

there will be snacks and refreshments, from 1 to 4 pm. If you want to just quietly contemplate the

art on your own, the show runs from July 24th to August 3rd (Wednesday through Saturday

noon to 6 pm, also 6-9 pm on First Friday).

The historic Carnegie Building (built in 1903) was originally the Fort Collins Library and is
