About The Event
Exclusive collection of paintings created by the late Ron Argenta.
Boulder artist Ron Argenta was a graduate of Eastern Michigan University and held a BA in Art, Philosphy, English Language and Literature, and an MA in Social education. The artist was always drawn to artistic self-expression and worked primarily in painting and ceramics. He was deeply influenced by the symbolism, iconography and composition of very early multi-cultural designs. Ron was fascinated by the overlay of symbology and the migration of signs and symbols that seemed to travel great distances, not only spatially, but through time.
Symbols of all cultures became a venue through which he created his own language in the contemporary world. A way for Ron to express events, perceptions, interpretations, people and places from his own travels.
The migration of the people of the world and the blending of cultures over time held a deep fascination for Ron which he expressed in this series of paintings called, “The nobility of immigration and the places of acceptance.”
This exhibit includes a collection of artwork created by Allan Tolbert using ancient arrowheads discovered in the Central Texas area.
Free Admission, light refreshments included.
