Chameleon Art Collective presents Chronometry
October 8, 2022 - October 29, 2022
Englewood’s Blue Tile Gallery Launches New Exhibit and New Mural (Englewood, CO) Blue Tile Gallery at 3944 S. Broadway in Englewood is excited to present a new exhibit featuring work by members of the Chameleon Collective—a dedicated group of 11 teaching artists who collaborate, create, experience and exhibit art while supporting each other. The show, entitled Chronometry is about the science of time measurement or time keeping. Individual works by each member will be on display along with collaborative pieces that combine the creative talents of the members in an additive fashion. Proceeds from sales go to fund a mural project in the works on the side of the Blue Tile Gallery building. The public is invited to an Opening Reception on Saturday, October 8th from 5-9 pm and to view and purchase works during regular gallery hours Tuesday –Saturday, 10 am-4 pm through Saturday, October 29th. Free parking is available on the south side of the building. The mural, stretching the south side of the Blue Tile building, has a theme of Space Time Exploration and is inspired by schematics for “time-travel” devices and a quote from Carl Sagan that reads, “We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever.” Members contributed imagery and inspiration for the final collaborative mural design by Arnoldi, Biermann, and Cotton. The Englewood Chamber of Commerce is hosting a “Mason Jars and Murals” event the same afternoon as the Chronometry art opening from 4-7 pm. The mural will be part of this event which will include a band and opportunities for kids to paint a mural. Chameleon Collective members and participants in this show include Nik Arnoldi, Timi Biermann, Leslie Canon, James Chaffin, Courtney Cotton, Ansley Delap, Olivia Fink, Shelby Gahm, Karl Horeis and Karen Kenny. The name was inspired by the slow moving, methodical lizard that moves as if its best laid plans have already been calculated to the finer points of perfection. It is also known to adapt to its surroundings using independently mobile eyes that are always analyzing its environment and by changing color as needed.
