Transformative Nature

When: Aug. 17-Sept. 17 2012

Weeknights, I'm as guilty as the next gal of yielding to the siren song of cranked-up AC and whatever's on TV. I think it has something to do with visual stimulation: All those swirls of light and color are like Happy Brain Juice. Thankfully, Commonwheel Artists Co-op (102 Cañon Ave., Manitou Springs, commonwheel.com) has mounted an especially colorful, swirly exhibition this month with the art of Audrey Gray and Juel Grant. Transformative Nature features soothing organic forms rendered in local-earth pigments and decontextualized, riotous compositions squeezed onto very small canvases — in other words, Happy Brain Juice. The free show's up through Sept. 17. — Claire Swinford
