SCOTT FRASER is one of the nation’s most talented still-life painters, and he has a new book that beautifully presents his work. The Colorado-based artist shows his paintings, which range from large canvases to miniatures on copper, in 25 galleries across the nation.

My feature on the artist was published by Art & Object and includes a wonderful slide shows of his fascinating paintings.

The Gates Family Foundation Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Denver Art Museum, Timothy Standring said of the artist, “He’s not a surrealist and not a realist. He’s Scott Fraser.”

You’ll never look at lawn chairs the same again once you get a glimpse at “La Musidora,” a kinetic design installation outside Denver Art Museum. Created by a famous pair of Mexican designers, the musical rocking chairs feature traditional weaving by Mexican artisans. What’s more, the chairs make music! Each includes a chime activated when the chairs rock. “La Musidora” allows people to sit face-to-face, thanks to a traditional Mexican chair design.

Read more about “La Musidora” at this link to Art & Object.
Rock on!
