With that in mind, MOA is presenting the disparate COC visions of twelve artists, whose artistic impressions range from Arthurian tackle boxes and couture paper dolls of fictional archetypal women to blown-glass conundrums and scientifically exact object collections. Its territory that Hanzon, an artist/designer with a baroque sense of adventure and a predilection for the antique, clearly loves. My own contribution is Lewis Carrolls Imaginary Cabinet, which is a full room of Lonnie going completely berserk, he says. Its packed with fairy-tale reliquaries containing things like Little Reds riding hood and Miss Muffets tuffet.
The curious are welcome at an opening reception on October 10 from 5 to 9 p.m., or you can see the show at your leisure; its open weekdays through March 5, 2010, at MOA, 1000 Englewood Parkway, in the Englewood Civic Center. Admission is free; get details at www.moaonline.org or call 303-806-0444.
