Alice Messinger lives and works in Boulder, Colorado. Since receiving her BFA from Parsons School of Design, she has continued to study independently and through workshops with nationally acclaimed artists in New York City, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Colorado. She is represented in many private collections.
Ever-changing and creative, Alice practices both her teaching and artistic skills in different settings — studio artist, teacher, curator, and collector. Please check out her website http://www.alicemessingerstudio.com and follow her on Instagram: @alicemessingerstudio.
The Messinger Gallery at the Boulder JCC showcases rotating exhibits of artists in a heavily visited, community space. The building’s high ceilings, natural light, and award-winning architecture contribute to the overall experience. The gallery hosts 3-4 exhibits per year, showcasing both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional art. The art is displayed not only on the gallery’s walls, but via the building’s architectural features as well; the goal is simply to present the pieces in the best way possible. Each exhibit features an opening event with a conversation with the artists.
The Boulder JCC receives a portion of all art sales to help support the gallery and its programs.
The JCC is excited to offer the following two events:

Alice Messinger Gallery Opening
Thursday, March 31, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Alice’s work is constructed from an abstract vocabulary, inspired by the natural world in which she lives. Alice expresses her personal interpretation of nature’s colors, forms, and textures. The language of her strokes and color variations reflects her mood and temperament at the time of painting. For Alice, making art is a journey to understand the external natural world and the many ways in which it is internalized and interpreted.
