Artist David Wharton displays at CMC ArtShare Gallery

Tiger Matchbox 1Montana artist David Wharton’s exhibit is a series of art-paper watercolors and three-dimensional altar pieces at the CMC ArtShare Gallery in downtown Glenwood Springs starting July 2.

Employing techniques of book arts, printmaking, watercolor and digital media, Wharton’s creations invite viewers to stop and take a closer look – to decipher meaning from his meticulous technique.

In addition to a series of highly dimensional watercolors, the artist will display a series of 10 altar pieces. Inspired by an assignment he created to interest his students at Whitman College, the altars open like triptych tablets to reveal intricate and often surreal interior spaces.

Wharton, who holds an MFA from the esteemed Cranbrook Academy of Art, has been a visiting professor at five universities. His work has been widely exhibited in galleries across the country and published in numerous art periodicals. An affinity for the blank-canvas emptiness of the rural west brought him to Lewistown, Mont., where he now lives and works.

His current exhibit will be on display July 2-Aug. 27 at the CMC ArtShare Gallery at 802 Grand Ave. in Glenwood Springs. An opening reception is set for Friday, July 11, from 6 to 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.

‘Big Water, Little Boats’ author Tom Martin coming to Colorado Mountain College

CMC in Carbondale and Breckenridge to host free talks

Tom Martin, author of “Big Water, Little Boats,” a history of river-running on the Colorado River from the 1940s and ’50s, will speak at two April appearances at Colorado Mountain College.

The free, 45-minute program features original photographs from various Grand Canyon river trips over several decades, including Boulder Narrows at 126,000 cubic feet per second in 1957. The presentation tells how Moulty Fulmer happened upon the McKenzie River hull design of today’s Pacific Northwest boats, and how he used that design to build his boat the Gem, Grand Canyon’s first decked dory.

Martin will also touch on the building of a full-sized replica of the Gem and taking the replica through the Grand Canyon. He will show photo rematching of original pictures from the 1940s and 1950s river trips. The program will be followed by a book signing.

Carbondale talk includes panel discussion on Colorado Water Plan

Author Tom Martin will appear at CMC locations in Carbondale (April 10) and Breckenridge (April 12) to talk about his book, “Big Water, Little Boats.” The Carbondale appearance will also feature a panel discussion about the Colorado Water Plan.

Author Tom Martin will appear at CMC locations in Carbondale (April 10) and Breckenridge (April 12) to talk about his book, “Big Water, Little Boats.” The Carbondale appearance will also feature a panel discussion about the Colorado Water Plan.

The first talk and book signing is set for Colorado Mountain College’s Lappala Center in Carbondale April 10, from 7 to 8 p.m. Martin’s talk will follow a panel discussion of the Colorado Water Plan that will take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. The Colorado Water Plan is a comprehensive, statewide plan being created this year in response to Gov. Hickenlooper’s executive order to figure out how to allocate, over the decades to come, our state’s rapidly dwindling water resources.

A diverse panel of water experts and enthusiasts – including CMC sustainability studies instructors Sandy Jackson and Ken Neubecker, CMC sustainability studies student Jeremy Isenhart and author Martin – will discuss the plan from a variety of perspectives, including agriculture, river ecology, recreation and land use.

After hearing from each panelist, the audience will be invited to provide input that will be gathered by panel moderator Louis Meyer (president, CEO and civil engineer at SGM) and integrated into the portion of the plan focused on the Colorado River Basin.

Following the panel discussion Martin will present on his book, “Big Water, Little Boats,” and will sign copies of his fascinating look at this mighty river. CMC in Carbondale is located at 690 Colorado Ave.

Breckenridge, Carbondale events arranged by CMC faculty, staff

CMC adjunct faculty member Matt Lit organized these events with Martin after seeing a Facebook post about the author’s presentation. CMC instructional chair Adrian Fielder organized the panel discussion for the Carbondale talk.

Martin’s second talk will take place on April 12, at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Martin’s presentation will be followed by a book signing. CMC in Breckenridge is located at 107 Denison Placer Rd.

Special to the Daily

Following a successful 2013 festival, the Breckenridge Festival of Film is seeking to expand its offerings in 2014, beginning with the nearly sold-out Summit County premiere of “Climb to Glory,” a film by Warren Miller Entertainment and the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum.

The film tells the story of the 10th Mountain Division ski troopers and how they championed the U.S. ski industry following World War II. Scheduled for Saturday, March 8, at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge, the screening will be accompanied by a presentation by 10th Mountain Division veteran Dick Over, as well as a chance to talk with him following the film.

“Climb to Glory” explores the roots of the ski industry, from the perspectives of both the snow soldiers and their descendants. The film features professional skier and philanthropist Chris Anthony, of Vail; pro skier Scott Kennett; and the late Tony Seibert, grandson of Vail founder and 10th Mountain Division veteran Pete Seibert.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door and include one free beer from New Belgium Brewery, as well as a chance to win door prizes. The bar opens at 6:15 p.m., doors at 7, and the show begins at 7:15 p.m. Note that no food or beverage is allowed in the auditorium, so arrive early to redeem your beer ticket.

The Breckenridge Festival of Film and the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance in partnership with Breck Hospitality, Colorado Mountain College, New Belgium Brewery and the Breckenridge Backstage Theatre are presenting the film. Gary Martinez and Dave Young are sponsoring the cash bar in memory of good friend, longtime Summit County resident and “damn good guy” Lloyd Yorker, 10th Mountain Division, 87th Regiment, I Company.

Other events in the Festival of Film’s spring lineup include a Spring Film Series, presented in partnership with the Breckenridge Backstage Theatre during April, May and June, as well as the annual Hollywood & Wine fundraising event, slated for Friday, June 6.
