This weekend, you can see a tribute to photographers who share their technical knowledge as teachers, a sweeping stock-show-ready survey of Western art and new work from an installation artist on the rise. Read on for the details.
Colorado Photographic Arts Center Through February 7 Opening reception: 6 to 8 p.m. January 9
CPAC is far more than gallery space; it's also a school for budding photographers, with a slew of regional professional artists leading the workshops and sharing techniques. The aptly named Inspiration! showcases the work of more than a dozen of them with a beautiful display of fine work from some of Colorado's best photographers.

Go West with Abend tonight, at a show of Western art both traditional and contemporary that celebrates stock show season in Denver. See the work of 33 local and national artists, many of whom will be present at the reception, in renderings of cows and cowboys, modern landscapes, nostalgic scenarios and more.
See work by Claudia Mastrobuono at Super Ordinary Gallery.
At the Periphery: New Works by Claudia Mastrobuono Super Ordinary Gallery Reception: 6 to 10 p.m. January 10
Claudia Mastrobuono, a current RedLine resident, weaves traditional fiber techniques and mediums with a contemporary sensibility in her new works. Her statement: "I decorate the ordinary, allowing the viewer access by using familiar objects and nostalgic materials. My work deals with personal conflict between the desire for domestic foundation and the need to fulfill personal goals. I struggle with my role as a woman, daughter, partner and artist. I translate this fight visually, creating noise with material and pattern."
