Daniel Augenstein: Educating Vision / Challenging Technique
June 27 – September 13, 2020
Daniel Augenstein’s art displays his journey of creative growth. The artist’s vision guides each brush stroke and pen mark from conception to the final, framed work. The deeper and more complete the vision, the richer the result; the more informed, the closer to an intended goal. Through design experiments, research of others’ ideas, and searching for multiple right answers, Augenstein produces a wide variety of images showing his vision. The technical skill needed for drawing and painting must be practiced with a desire to improve. Taking risks with varied media and techniques can enable the artist to achieve visual results unexpected from the art, staying within the comfort zone of prior works. Augenstein says, “As an artist and teacher for many years, I am still amazed by the act of creation. I am still learning.”
**The Foote Gallery/Auditorium is a reservable space and the gallery may be closed for private events from time to time. Please call the Museum front desk (970) 962-2410 to verify exhibit availability prior to arrival.
Our artist, Joe Norman may have too much time on his hands. Here's a video he's shared showing the effects of Stay-At-Home on artists who have studios and tools locked up in shared work spaces. Don't worry, we're checking in on him regularly.

What happens when you have an engineer/artist dad (Joe Norman), a bright young girl and a 3D printer to make prototypes during a stay-in-place order? Construct a icosahedron fort! What an awesome homeschool project!!
We've got our eyes on Abby, she's going places already. Also, I want a play day in that fort!
From Joe: "Attached are some photos of me and Abby learning about icosahedrons and building her new fort in the backyard, after prototyping it with 3D printed sockets we designed that fit Q-tips as structural members. We then used 2x4's and door hinges to make the full size version."
In geometry, an icosahedron is a polyhedron with 20 faces. The name comes from Ancient Greek εἴκοσι, meaning 'twenty', and ἕδρα, meaning 'seat'. There are infinitely many non-similar shapes of icosahedra, some of them being more symmetrical than others.
What has NSG's Stephen Shachtman been up to during Stay-in-Place? Lots of new monolithic sculptures and some help from a couple of the cutest workers around. What can we say? some of our artists are taking a creative approach to home-schooling; we know hands-on learning can leave a life-long impression. Stephen's kids, Dov and Avi, are helping out with moving the artwork and clearing off Spring snows. Looks like they're doing an awesome job.!
Below are a few #WIP pieces he has in the works at his studio, If you see anything that interests you, please contact us for title scale and pricing. Most of Stephen's work is fabricated from Cor-Ten Steel, sometimes including areas of powder-coating for a pop of color. Check out his other available work here too.
We probably would have called a snow day anyway - but we're already safe at home. Stay healthy everyone

Make sure you check out the latest community mural by our artist Scott Freeman while visiting Loveland’s art scene.
“THE KISS” – Loveland Version, 15 x 15 feet. Feb,2020.
“2020 is our fourth year to create a giant community art piece in downtown Loveland, Colorado. For the design each year I’ve spoofed a famous fine art painting, giving each one a Valentine’s Day twist and a nod to Loveland.
This year I chose Austrian painter, Gustav Klimt, and his iconic 1908 painting, The Kiss. If you look closely you can see Dan Cupid aiming his arrow at the couple. Dan Cupid is the character who shows up in the special postmark each year for Loveland’s famous valentine re-mailing program. He’s kind of a Loveland mascot, at least around Valentine’s Day, so he made his way into the design this year.” -Scott Freeman
