Summit County Art Forum to unveil new exhibit with family-centered theme

The Summit County Art Forum is unveiling a new exhibit at the Summit County Commons, showcasing the work of local artists. “Families” kicks off with an opening from 4-6 p.m., Sunday, May 21, in the Art Forum display space, located on the building’s upper level, adjacent to the Summit County Library in Frisco.

“The concept of ‘family’ can describe so many types of important relationships in our lives,” Art Forum Program Assisant Leslie Walker said in a news release. “It serves as a framework for our connections with relatives, animal companions, friends, coworkers and more. This exhibit gives us the opportunity to see artists’ interpretations of what it means to be a family, and it provides windows into the lives of real Summit County families.”

“Families” will be on display in the Summit County Commons through September. Sunday’s opening is free to the public, and featured artists will be present to discuss their work. Silverthorne resident and author Karin Mitchell will read from her memoir, “Stop Licking That.” The event will also include light refreshments.

Featured artists also include Alisa Messeroff, Corky Woodring, Cecelia Eidemiller, Susan Simon, Dinah Langsjoen, Matt Lit, Michelle Woods, Len Szmurlo, Bill Linfield, Jeremy Greene, Kathy Wahler, Adolph Zimmerman and Art Forum scholarship winners Ella PieCoup and Samantha Buer. Also on display is the toy collection of Georgia Kraatz.

The Art Forum features three four-month-long shows each year, highlighting works of art by community members.
