Whether she’s painting landscapes of the Southwest, architectural structures, or the vintage farm trucks, barns, and silos of a disappearing agricultural way of life, Colorado-based artist JC Spock invests her work with a nostalgic atmosphere. “As an old soul, I’m drawn to old buildings, old documents and old history,” she says in a statement. “I love to scour antique shops for vintage/antique ephemera to incorporate into my backgrounds.” Layers of History: Mixed Media by JC Spock, a solo exhibit of her work, features imagery from several bodies of work, including Life in the 1930s, which capture a vintage aesthetic. The title of the show is two-fold, referencing her historic subject matter as well as the added layers of material used to create each composition. The show opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, July 30, and is on exhibit through Aug 19.
