The modern muse
EAGLE-VAIL – What modern myths are inspiring contemporary artists will be revealed today at The Collaborative Fine Art Gallery in Eagle-Vail during an artists’ reception Wednesday from 4-8 p.m. Gallery director Simone Fodde-Crotzer thought up the theme as a platform to discuss the abstract art and artists she displays. The theme also serves as a springboard for her artists to create new work that reflect the theme. Most of the artists will be in attendance to discuss their work.
“What is inspiring our artists of today? Is it our savior? Spiderman? It used to be Greek mythology or Christian mythology, which was very dark,” said Fodde-Crotzer. “For our artist Nancy Volpe, it is integrating Eastern philosphy into her art.”Volpe painted a series of mandalas for The Collaborative, which is a sacred circle in Eastern culture.Kevan Krasnoff, another featured artist, is inspired by the harmonius relationship between humans and nature.
“His paintings of aspens are looking at you as much as you are looking at the aspens,” said Fodd-Crotzer. “He is interested in nature’s strong energies.”The Collaborative is located on Highway 6 in Eagle-Vail. For more informatio, call 949-4ART.

It’s fitting that Eagle County is proceeding through its reopening phases of COVID-19 in an analogy to ski run difficulties — green to blue to black. Monday marks the transition from the green beginner phase to the blue intermediate phase.
