Colorado Springs Art Gallery
We are a local downtown Colorado Springs art gallery
************We’re sorry, but the Modbo Ho Ho is on a wait list– both shows are full. Please email themodbo at gmail.com to get on the wait list.************ The Modbo cheekily presents The Modbo Ho Ho, an R-rated Christmas Cabaret! On Friday, December 17th, please join Cabaret Mistress Lauren Ciborowski as well as special guests Colin Christie, Jo Carol Ciborowski, Warren Epstein, Max Ferguson, Wendy Mike, Jessie Oliver, Solveig Olsen, Claire Swinford, Swelter and Burn, and more! This short show, for grown-ups only, will surely augment your holiday cheer! Now in its tenth year, The Modbo Ho Ho is an irreverent and festive romp through the holidays, including mostly tawdry songs, some dance, and a few brief moments of holiday earnestness. And if we’re lucky, a very… self-expressed… Santa may pay us a visit. Don’t miss the show that one person on facebook said was “better than ‘Cats’!” Two performances, one at 7 and one at 9:30 pm at The Modbo, 17C East Bijou, 80903. $15 cash. Doors open one half hour before each respective performance, and not a minute sooner. Seating is extremely limited, so reserve your tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 633-4240. Adults only please.
The Modbo dolorously presents The Saddest Small Works Show ever! Not only is The Modbo closing at the end of the year, only half the number of artists submitted work compared to previous years. That makes it even more important to come support the artists and their work! Every piece available is under 18”, making it a great option for holiday shopping. Unlike anything you might order online, this art is not stuck on a shipping container, and you can take it with you the night of the opening! Friday, December 3rd, 5 – 9 pm. In addition to the opening reception, the gallery is happily open by appointment. The Modbo is located in the Arts Alley in downtown Colorado Springs at 17C E. Bijou. Find the stretch of Bijou that is between Cascade and Tejon, and go south down the alley. Street parking is available, but The Modbo recommends the lot on Cascade just north of Bijou. The Modbo can be reached at email@example.com, themodbo.com, or 633-4240.
NOW that’s what I call art
This art is a wonderful example of art from this period of art production. Some say its the best of those arts while others reserve judgement. First painted by world renowned art guy “Arty” it has since been aged like fine wine and had a fancy frame put around it to enhance its aesthetic assault on your taste.
Birds of a Feather
Put together as a tribute for the great “hair de jur” of 1890 this piece features exquisite use of water color, crayon color, and sun color, truly displaying the mastery of the artist and his wide range of talents. The authors identity remains a mystery to this day but some say it was the work of a poor farm boy in the Mississippi Delta who learned to read by way of twig bundling.
