Devotional Realms Opens Oct. 12

Colorado Springs, Colo. – Oct. 4, 2012 - Devotional Realms, the newest show at the PPCC Downtown Studio Art Gallery, will kick-off Oct. 12, 5 p.m., with an opening reception. The reception, titled THE HAPPENING, will feature live music, dancing and even real life artists hanging from the ceiling.

This show celebrates eighteen regional artists and pays homage to their “devotional realms.” Each of the individual devotional realm “creations” are four by four feet “booths” displaying inspirations, muses and/or the artists’ process.

“I wanted the viewer to discover what he or she might experience were they to peek into the artists’ minds,” said Laura BenAmots, PPCC Gallery Director. “As a gallery visitor enters a ‘realm,’ we hope they ask themselves ‘What is sacred to this artist?’ We also hope they are inspired to explore what a devotional realm means in their own minds.”

The exhibit, which is currently being hung, runs through Nov. 24. Admittance is free and the PPCC Downtown Studio Gallery hours are Monday and Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and 2:30 – 5:30 pm., Friday & Saturday 1 – 6 p.m.  The gallery is closed Sunday and Tuesday.
