The Art Walkway was designed to give patients, visitors and staff a place to enjoy a variety of local art and perhaps even provide a brief escape. The art changes four times a year and is available for sale. A portion of every art sale is donated to the Longmont United Hospital Foundation, who manages the Art Walkway. To purchase a piece of art call the LUH Foundation at 303-485-4190.
The world's recent time of isolation from one another offered me more time to spend outdoors. As a result, I found joy in a new hobby of photographing the nature around me. The boldness and beauty of the Colorado sky, landscape, and wildlife are my favorite subjects to capture.
I am primarily inspired by color and texture. I approach my work with a spirit of experimentation and play, many times without an end result in mind. Often enough, the clay and I take a joyful journey together and end up somewhere new and unexpected. My medium of choice is polymer clay. Polymer is a miraculous material that can do just about anything. Some of my other favorite materials to work with on polymer include acrylic paint, ink, metal leaf, pastel, mica powder and resin. In addition, I often use leather and semi-precious gemstones in my finished work. See more...
Heather Locke is a longtime Boulder County artist who works in acrylics and mixed meda. Her paintings incorporate settledness, peace within movement and transition. She resonates deeply with color and things that catch light in different ways and is endlessly inspired by the natural world. The movement and transition of the seasons, the deep currents of change that manifest in the sky, in bodies of water and in the animal world are what she continues to come back to and find inspiration. She loves to delight people and share the richness of her work with them. Her work brings forth resonance in a deep, quiet way. See more...
I believe in letting the metal find its way and I’m inspired from the aspects of wabi-sabi. My reticulated silver pieces I believe are representative of the freedom of this “imperfectly perfect” style. Another style I use is charcoal casting. For me, casting is a balance of control and loose structure that allows me to manipulate the metal into unique shapes and forms.
All my pieces are hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind. I want people to have an organic personal attraction to the pieces…something that speaks to you. See more....
