Aspen exhibit features more than 100 valley artists

Staff report
Snowmass Sun

The works of more than 100 Roaring Fork Valley artists will be on display at the Aspen Art Museum this month, starting with a free public reception at 6 p.m. on Oct. 3.

Each work is selected by the individual artist in consultation with 2013 guest curator and Carbondale-based artist James Surls. The 2013 Roaring Fork Open will remain on view from Oct. 4 through 27.

The Roaring Fork Open is a longstanding tradition that highlights the Aspen Art Museum’s ongoing investment in sustaining a vibrant local, national and international arts community, according to a statement. It is open to artists living between Aspen and Glenwood Springs, and over the past 33 years, countless artists have presented their work at the museum.

With the completion of the Aspen Art Museum’s new home expected in 2014, this is the last time that the Roaring Fork Open will be in the museum’s historic building.

Public programs

From 5 to 6 p.m. each Saturday throughout the exhibition, the Aspen Art Museum also will present free public programs featuring local chefs, each of whom will invent a culinary dish inspired by an exhibition artwork of their choosing.

Oct. 5: Julia and Allen Domingos (Epicure)

Oct. 12: Pyramid Bistro

Oct. 19: Rustique Bistro

Oct. 26: Miles Angelo (Caribou Club)
