ELEMENTALS _Page_4_Image_0001 (1)

The Tointon Gallery presents, “elementals,” the collaborative work of four Northern Colorado artists, with an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9. at 651 10th Ave. Enjoy light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the artists while examining the relationships between humans and the five elements of existence.    

The exhibit runs Sept. 9-Oct. 15 and is free and open to the public during normal Greeley Recreation business hours and Union Colony Civic Center performances for ticket-holding patrons.

Fire, Earth, Water, Air, and Aether.

Using different mediums and techniques, Sharon Carlisle, Sylvia Eichmann, Sandra Gisonti, and Deborah Riley combine their works in an exploration of five elements: fire, earth, water, air, and aether.

Some of the materials used in the exhibit include ceramics, silk, tea paper, and metal encrusted with jewels, each personifying one of the five elements. Visitors may interact with, touch, and even possess small parts of the fire, water, air, and earth objects. The artwork representing the final element, aether, has no interactive quality demonstrating how the etheric force lies beyond the five senses.

The Tointon Gallery features up to 12 different exhibits annually. As the only city-run gallery in Greeley, the facility provides visitors with opportunities to experience the visual arts and enjoy educational and thought-provoking discussions. By contributing to the city’s thriving arts community, the Tointon Gallery enhances the community and the quality of life of its residents.
