The Boulder JCC is thrilled to welcome the community’s art lovers to the Messinger Gallery for the opening of a new exhibition by CarolAnn Wachter. CarolAnn Wachter is both an observational oil painter and a fashion designer, based in Boulder, Colorado.
CarolAnn is now exploring nuances of depth, light, form, space, and color in a new way: through richly-hued abstract collages. Her process is to first coat large swaths of paper with colors made from acrylic ink and gouache. She then starts cutting. From there, it’s a process of adding and subtracting, disassembling and reassembling, and sometimes, simply stepping away. CarolAnn studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has drawn on her painting and sculpture background to create her own line of women’s clothing.
With a focus on fine fabrics, craftsmanship, and classic forms, CarolAnn has built a reputation as both an accomplished painter and a designer of quality, wearable yet elegant silhouettes. CarolAnn has been featured in Lucky, Elle, Spur, 5280 Magazine (Denver), Boulder Lifestyle, and The Boulder Daily Camera, and her hats and clothing have been sold in Barney’s New York and in select boutiques around the country. You can learn more about CarolAnn and her work on her website.
Please join us for an evening of fine art, light refreshments, live music, and an artist’s talk at 6:30 PM.
Thursday, December 8 | 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM.
Registration is encouraged, but not required.
