Today's featured event: Have a look at Charles Parson's larger than life artworks at the Foothills art Center

One of the region's preeminent sculptors, Charles Parson's quite literally left a monumental mark on the area over the years (here's what our Michael Paglia wrote about him a few years back). Now, a new show at the Foothills Art Center, Charles Parson: Personal Echoes on the Horizon, puts the artist and teacher's prolific career in perspective, one step at a time. A combination of sketches, three-dimensional drawings, wall constructions and large-scale sculptures with an added interactive-sound component, the exhibit is fascinating journey inside and outside the artist's working mind. Trust me. You will be impressed.

Attend an opening celebration tonight from 5:30 to 8 p.m.; an additional reception and artist talk takes place at 6:30 p.m. June 25. (Parson will also speak at 11 a.m. during the Center's SCFD Family Free Day on July 25.) Or try something different: An Art Through the Pages Tuesday night book club, featuring a book selection integral to Parson's concepts and inspiration is scheduled at 5:30 p.m. June 23 and July 21. Participate for a $10 fee plus the discounted price of the book chosen; refreshments are included.

Personal Echoes continues through August 7 at the FAC, 809 15th Street, Golden. Gallery admission is $3 to $5. Get details at the website or call 303-279-3922.
