Vail artist Jim Cotter to be part of ‘Multiples’ art exhibit in Delaware
Ryan Summerlin December 11, 2011
Artist Jim Cotter, owner of J. Cotter Gallery, is participating in the exhibition “Multiples” now through Jan. 30 at the Heidi Lowe gallery in Rehoboth Beach, Del. This will be the fifth “Multiples” show held at this gallery.
Each artist chosen will exhibit five to 10 pieces that are made in multiples and all contain a common thread. The objective of this exhibition is to display innovative uses of materials, processes and ideas and to connect the public to fresh, well-designed jewelry. Cotter’s “Hot Wire” series fulfills these requirements and, thus, is currently on display in Delaware. This series of work has been created by twisting steel wire into different shapes and formats which are then powder coated, often in neon colors, deserving the title “Hot Wires.” Cotter, thinks of these pieces as “line drawings come to life,” he said.
This relatively simple notion is where he has gotten his inspiration for this new work. While some of this series will be on exhibit for another couple of months at the Heidi Lowe Gallery, Eagle County residents and visitors are invited to see a few of these pieces, which are on display and for sale in the J. Cotter Galleries in Vail and Beaver Creek, in person.
J. Cotter Gallery was established in 1970 in Vail and continues to uphold the tradition of bringing contemporary jewelry and art to the Vail Valley. J. Cotter Gallery can be visited in Vail on Wall Street and in Beaver Creek Village on Market Square.
