For just $12 (for up to three entries), you can enter your favorite fan art for The Modbo’s “Drowned in Moonlight” show, opening Friday, March 3rd. Depictions of celebrities who passed in 2016 up until the show’s submission date are welcome (e.g., Prince, George Michael, Carrie Fisher, David Bowie). Work and payment must be dropped off at The Modbo on Wednesday, March 1st, between noon and six.  Any piece submitted must be ready to hang, with two D-rings or eye screws affixed to the back of each piece — no exceptions.  A panel of three jurors will evaluate the work, and decisions will be revealed at pickup the next day, March 2nd.  Questions?

The Modbo naughtily presents The Modbo Ho Ho, an R-rated Christmas Cabaret! On Saturday, December 17th, please join Cabaret Mistresses Claire Anderson, Lauren Ciborowski, and Solveig Olsen as well as special guests Warren Epstein, Cherry Glitterbomb, Trish Doyle-Stahl, Claire Swinford, and more! This short show, for grown-ups only,  will surely augment your holiday cheer! Two performances, one at 7 and one at 9:30 pm at The Modbo, 17C East Bijou, 80903.  $15 strongly suggested donation.

Now in its seventh year, The Modbo Ho Ho is an irreverent and festive romp through the holidays, including songs both earnest and tawdry, some dance of varying (and occasionally dubious) natures, and the odd skit here and there. Emphasis on the odd. And rumor has it, Santa may make a very special appearance!

The Small Works Show can be seen on Wednesday, December 7th, from 5:00 til 8, and on Friday, December 9th from 5:30 til 9 pm.  There’s still work left to purchase, so please come on by!

The ModboCo moves back to The Modbo

Brett and Lauren are moving art classes from the Ivywild School back to The Modbo Gallery in central downtown Colorado Springs. After 17 months of operating at Ivywild School, we’ve decided the most pragmatic financial decision would be to re-consolidate our operations to their original downtown location, The Modbo Gallery. (The Gallery was home to classes for nearly five years before the move to Ivywild.)

We enjoyed the opportunity to be part of the growing and vibrant Ivywild community!

Art classes for both adults and children will still be held on a similar schedule, with adult classes in oil painting, drawing, and more on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings. Kids’ art classes will be held on Saturdays, and will cover introductory levels of art as well as drawing and painting. New classes begin on February 23rd for adults and February 28th for children. The class schedule will be announced within the week and posted at themodboco.com.

Current classes will finish out in the Ivywild space.

Pretty, pretty, please with lots of cherries on top!

Will you please vote? In the Indy’s Best Of? You could nominate The Modbo for best gallery, best place to buy art, best place to see emerging artists. You could vote Brett Andrus for best artist, or any of our exhibitions that you particularly liked for best exhibition.  SO. MANY. OPTIONS.

 

Please vote! We really, truly would appreciate it!
