The Art Base 10×10 Name Unseen Silent Auction Is Pandemic Proof!

The Art Base presents the 10×10 Name Unseen Silent Auction featuring 100+ artworks from regional artists. This highly anticipated annual event will be on exhibit in the Charles J. Wyly Gallery, from July 31st – August 16th, and can be viewed in person or at The Art Base online.

“Art is a universal language that is more important than ever in times of crisis,” says Executive Director, Skye Skinner. “We are determined not to let the pandemic undermine our work or our connection to the community.”

Community has always been at the heart of what the Art Base is all about. As the seriousness of COVID-19 became clear, the Art Base acted early, providing art opportunities and positive community outreach. In addition to online exhibits, artist talks and art classes, over 912 free Art-Kits-To-Go have been distributed since mid-March.

“The 10×10 event is in alignment with all the values of the Art Base—bringing community together in a meaningful way—from the artists who donate their work, to members of the public who come to view and bid, or view and bid online—all in support of this beloved, grassroots arts organization,” says Curator, Lissa Ballinger.

The Art Base has been a nonprofit community art center for 24 years, with a mission to foster creative expression in the visual arts for all ages and abilities, through education, exhibits and events. Located in the heart of old town Basalt, the Art Base serves residents of the Roaring Fork Valley, and students represent the broad diversity of the local community.

This exhibition is generously sponsored by: Slifer Smith & Frampton; Ann Korologos Gallery; Harry Teague Architects; Heirlooms; Raven Gallery; State Farm Insurance Andrea Gurule; JD Black Construction, Decorative Materials.

It's amazing the treasures one finds when one slows down to take an old pup out for daily slow walks. Having been up in Aspen for 5 years, I forgot about this old Fairview Cemetery that Loki guided me to where I discovered Merino Fiou: Merino Bruno Fiou, AKA “Mr. Basalt”, born July 29, 1940 in Glenwood Springs and died March 6, 2011 at Valley View Hospital.This from the Aspen Times: A constant staple of the Town of Basalt, Merino was always on the search for a treasure that few of us cherished. He had a love of hats and was always seen wearing a different one. He walked many miles each day back and forth into town.Many local merchants of different stores knew him by name. Merino was very proud of his money jar that he accumulated by turning in his aluminum cans that he collected. Merino had many jobs throughout the years including trash pickup and working at Two Rivers Cafe washing dishes. He liked to help out wherever needed, even volunteering when they built the playground. Merino was very fond of River Days and loved to listen to the music in town. With a constant smile on his face, he was very friendly and never knew a stranger. Merino loved the annual yard sale at his house, looked forward to sifting through all the stuff, he found a treasure in things that other people threw out.Did anyone know Merino?#iseenya#mrbasalt#coolcemeteries ...
