Foothills Art Center proudly presents the 2017 Members’ Show and The Power of Process, A Jeffco Student Exhibition showcasing their outstanding community.

FAC artist members have been the foundation of the institution since 1968.  From the earliest years through the late 1980’s, Foothills Art Center featured art-work by members in an annual exhibition. Presenting over 70 works of art in a variety of media, Foothills is excited to feature works from their members from all over the United States. Juried by Foothills Art Centers’ exhibition staff, the selection highlights engaging and creative content along with the highest level of craftsmanship.

Engaging in the community is a point of pride for Foothills Art Center, so in addition to the Members’ Show, The Power of Process, A Jeffco Student Exhibition is a great way to see the variety of work from kids in kindergarten through 12th grade. “Our goal has always been to provide students with a professional atmosphere to exhibit their work,” says Exhibitions manager, Eriq Hochuli. “The size restrictions are no more and emphasis is placed on the creative journey that students travel to create their work.”

The exhibitions kick off with a member-only preview on Thursday, February 2, 2017 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. 

From watercolor to wood and abstraction to realism, the art members of Foothills Art Center display a diversity of talent.
