The six Colorado artists included in this year's exhibit are Louisa Armbrust, Patti Hallock, Susan Meyer, Jason Patz, David Sharpe and Jeff Starr. Artists from elsewhere are Angela Ellsworth, Denis Gillingwater and Jessica James from Arizona, and New Mexico's Sherlock Terry. Of the six Colorado artists in BLOW OUT, I've written about five of them, so I know that no matter what, we're in for a show that will be at least half good.

With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
