Colorado Mountain College (CMC) Salida has set its spring Art Show and open house for 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Friday, February 17, at CMC’s Kesner Building facilities located at 349 East Ninth Street in Salida.
The free event at the CMC Salida campus will feature the work of local watercolor artist Kerstin Stock, who is currently working on three commissioned art pieces for the college.
During the art show, Stock will unveil those pieces, which have been purchased by the CMC Foundation. Stock’s other artwork will also be on display throughout CMC’s building and will be available for purchase. For more about Stock’s work, go to KerstinStockArt.com.
The dual-focus event will give the public the opportunity to drop in on the vibrant campus and get a first-hand look at some of the new coursework, including new anatomy equipment.
Biology professor, Dr. Simon Waldbaum, will be giving demonstrations of the new interactive anatomy table, known as an anatomage table. Used for anatomy and physiology education, the table offers a fascinating, 3D, life-size, interactive visualization of the body.
Appetizers and refreshments will be offered during the open house. In addition to the art show and open house, attendees may tour the campus building and register for non-credit classes. For more information, contact CMC Salida at 719-530-7900.
