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.

Repost @intrinsic_way・・・Local athlete who came to Emily Lubchenco Hightower with daily anxiety took the 30-day Nasal-only challenge to the Peaks. He shares below about Highland Bowl, a summit at 12,392' and a hike of 717' from the top of Lodge Lift. All for a mere 2500 vertical drop to Deep Temerity. What a playground to train stability.// "When I started nasal breathing only to hike the bowl, it sucked at first. I felt slow, frustrated. The next time, it was easier than mouth breathing and I realized my head had changed. Usually, I'm racing with thoughts about work and stress the whole way up, gaping with my mouth open. Nasal breathing slowed my brain down, and now I notice the surrounding peaks, my foot placement, my friends, my strength. //...my breathing was causing stressful thinking, making me anxious. My hiking time actually improved by the 4th weekend of nasal-only. I'm doing 37-minute laps, and I feel calm and powerful at the top. Thank you!"//✳Link in Intrinsic Way bio✳Our deepest dive into applications of breath gears for training stability in our upcoming Webinar, March 5th at noon EST @Shiftadapt Uneasy Athlete with myself and @_BrianMacKenzie@preparetoperform@shift_adapt@dsyeager7 #stopgaping#breathgears #shifthappens #mouthwideshut #knowyourshift #skillofstress #anxiety #athletes #highlandbowl #trainstability #Highlandbowl#aspenbusinessconnectmemberphoto 1 credit @jswansonphotophoto 2 Oz age 11 heading upphoto 3 credit @aspenpeakmag ...
