The show runs through Friday, March 29th. 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.

About the artist: Patrick Kochanasz is a native of Eastern Pennsylvania, where he studied at The Baum School of Art for several years. Captivated by the luminosity and tactile nature of soft pastels, he began studying the medium earnestly in 2004. He moved to Colorado Springs in 2011 and quickly fell under the Rocky Mountains’ beautiful spell. Kochanasz is available for private commissions and gallery collection proposals. About the Show: “Floating Through the West” merges both realistic and dreamlike elements, to create a whimsical, capricious, “floating” interpretation of nature. Kochanasz employs a number of distinct techniques in capturing this vision, including: the utilization of black paper, unusual edge cuts, the omission of blending tools, a textured appearance, as well as the incorporation of hard black lines around most elements within the frame. His landscapes are largely inspired by places he’s lived and explored- including Pennsylvania, Vermont and Colorado. Kochanasz strives to evoke the viewer’s sentiment of “I want to be there,” a sense of spatial desire. For the artist, the process of producing art is a very inward and grounding experience.

My Name is Harriett with Swelter and Burn

The Modbo is delighted to present a rare night of live music with My Name is Harriett and Swelter and Burn on Friday, March 29th.  Doors at 7:30, show at 8. $7 suggested donation. Swelter and Burn is an R-rated comedic piano duet team– they sing about sanctimonious yogis and sexting, and they promise they are very, very funny.  They’ll be opening for My Name is Harriett– Harriett’s soaring vocals and exquisite violin playing and looping will leave you aching for more. The Modbo is a small art gallery and events space 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, which is only $1 after 3 pm. The Modbo can be reached at themodbo@gmail.com, themodbo.com, or 633-4240. More about Harriett: Harriett Landrum has been playing the violin for the last twenty-eight years. She has enjoyed teaching music privately to over twenty students for twelve years. Notably, she has made a modest career as a singer and songstress under the moniker “My Name Is Harriett”. She weaves her interest with the English language, having her heart broken, and her ability to play the violin into songs. Songs that have made young men tear up. Songs that have helped ladies move on. Songs that have given voice to issues that she herself needed to purge.  Harriett continues to improve, explore and indulge her affectivity for prose and music.

NOW that’s what I call art

$150

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

$90

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.
