The featured art for March and April at The Stone Cup is a collaboration of a mother/daughter team of Carla and Hannah Ogden who have created a unique exhibit called “You Are Here.”
Carla has been a resident of Lyons for almost seventeen years. She worked in psychiatric nursing for over forty years before retiring and becoming a “professional grandmother.” For many years she has enjoyed gathering various art supplies, hunting and gathering trinkets and treasures for “someday” projects. Now that someday is finally here. Her line of “You Are Here” shadow boxes use those meticulously gathered treasures to transport us to cafes and other places here in our little town, and around the world. This is Carla’s first art show.
Hannah is a Colorado native, who grew up in Lyons. A graduate of Lyons High and CU Boulder, she now lives in Aurora but Lyons still feels like home. Hannah grew up loving arts and crafts of all kinds. She has dabbled in photography, pencil sketching, watercolor, scrapbooking, collage, and most recently crochet. Her contributions to the “You Are Here” exhibit each incorporate map segments constructed in a variety of mediums and styles. This is also Hannah’s first Art Show.
A reception to meet these two talented artists is in the planning stages, and more information will be forth coming. In the mean time, stop by The Cup and find out exactly where you are!
