-A A +A

Evergreen artist Carmon Slater is exhibiting a retrospective of his work at the Lakewood Cultural Center, and is part of a show at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden.

MANifestations, opening at the Quilt Museum on Feb. 7 from 5 to 8:30 p.m., is the 12th biennial exhibit of quilts made by men and is a national juried competition. Slater’s piece celebrates the Colorado autumn and features an unusual combination with fused glass.

The Lakewood exhibit includes more than 50 of Slater’s works ranging from traditional and art quilts to hand-painted yardages, furniture, social-commentary pieces, and large architectural-scale paintings.

Slater’s work is represented in many collections around the world, including at the Australia-New Zealand Bank, Rocky Mountain Energy, Southern Utah State College and Iowa State University, as well as in many private collections.
