EDWARDS, Colorado ” Recent work by two Colorado abstract artists ” Karen Roehl and Carol Browning ” will be on display at the Slifer Designs showroom in Edwards from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Roehl is an abstract artist based in Denver and known for the layered look of her pieces. Browning, also an abstract artist, is known for her “colorful soulscapes.” Her recent body of work explores landscapes and the contrast between nature’s tranquil beauty and dynamic intensity. Both artists will attend Sunday’s reception.

Between the two artists, 25 pieces of original art will be showcased in order to keep with the theme of Slifer Designs’ silver anniversary. Each artist has 25-plus years experience as an artist. Art Treasures is the organization responsible for bringing Browning and Roehl’s works to the Vail Valley.

Browning’s colorful abstract work explores a synthesis of emotion and thought, while Roehl’s neutral-toned pieces seek to re-create an experience of self-discovery through mark-making.

The event is open to the public and light refreshments ” cupcakes, coffee and tea ” will be served. This is a family-friendly event. Members of Red Stag Rewards, Slifer Designs’ frequent shopping program, will receive double points for anything purchased on the day of the event. To become a member, sign up at the event, or on-line at sliferdesigns.com. To RSVP, call 970-766-8061 or e-mail edwards@showroom.com.
