Anderson Ranch Arts Center Presents Interpreting the Political Landscape Exhibition
“The Things We Covet”, Zach Z., 2009, Oil on Canvas, 31.5” x 25.5”.

SNOWMASS VILLAGE, CO.- Anderson Ranch Arts Center hosts, Interpreting the Political Landscape, a juried exhibition featuring the work of Roaring Fork Valley and Colorado artists. The exhibition just opened in conjunction with the Spring Open House and Artist-in-Residence Studio Tours where the community is invited to tour the studios of the resident artists and Ranch staff. The exhibition will run through 27, 2009.

Artists were invited to respond to the concept “Interpreting the Political Landscape” and asked to submit an artist statement with their corresponding artwork. The notion of a show titled “Interpreting the Political Landscape” is power-charged with meaning and history. Given the turmoil in our country and around the world today, what the artists had to say about the pieces they submitted was a key factor in their evaluation. It was critical, as it relates to the theme of the exhibition, for the artist to be able to write a clear artist statement, express their position and communicate with the public in general.

Because the quality of all the work submitted was very impressive, the artist statements assisted in the jury’s assessment of the validity of a piece. The statements were not only about the war, the economy and change, but many also had personal references. There were some entries that did not include the artist’s written idea; those pieces were then judged on their apparent artistic merit.

Nearly 50 artists submitted their artwork for the juried review. The entries represented a diverse variety, ranging from photography, digital imagery, craft-based executions to painting and sculpture. Ultimately, 30 pieces were selected by jurors Pam Joseph and Robert Brinker, both local artists themselves.

Pamela Joseph is a multi-media artist who has exhibited nationally and internationally, including Paris, Barcelona, Copenhagen and Beijing. Robert Brinker is a mixed media artist whose primary focus is works on paper and collage who has also exhibited both nationally and internationally. Pamela and Robert both work and reside in Aspen, Colorado. For more information visit their website at

The exhibition and reception will take place in the Patton-Malott & Gartner Galleries located on the second floor of the Dows Barn administration building. All events are free and open to the public.
