The Tointon Gallery’s final exhibit of 2022, “Three Views: Contemporary Work by Charles Parson, Collin Parson, and Devon Parson” celebrates the creative similarities and differences of three generations of a family.

The exhibit opens with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 at 651 10th Ave. Enjoy light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the artists.   

“Three Views” runs Nov. 18-Dec. 23 and is free and open to the public during normal Greeley Recreation business hours and Union Colony Civic Center performances for ticket-holding patrons.

About the Parson Family

Artists Collin, Devon, and Charles (Chuck) Parson share the use of geometric forms in their work, each with a unique perspective on the contemporary western experience. The goal of the exhibit is present universal themes for the viewer to ponder, represented by sunrise and sunsets; the earth’s surfaces and forms; the west’s spaces; and our sense of place in it all.
