Ralph Price Reservoir and St. Vrain River in Flood, 2013

Exhibition artist Wopo Holup will talk about the drawings she made of the St. Vrain River in flood. Artist Barbara Shark will read from her upcoming memoir “How I Learned to Cook: An Artist’s Life”.  Geologist Peter Hale Molnar will speak about his flood experiences as an expert on the Rocky Mountains. The panel will be moderated by gallery owner Rexford Brown.

Holup's bronze and iron work can be found at the Philadelphia Zoo, Historic Battery Park in Manhattan, and the Tampa International Airport, among many others. Collaborations with architects, government agencies, and inspired communities have helped Holup achieve her artistic goals.
