Responding to Art
Movement in Stillness: Exploring the Drawings of Bonnie Lebesch

Have you ever been so drawn to a work of art that you just couldn’t look away or stop thinking about it? Join us on Sat., September 15th, from 3 – 5 p.m. to interpret, inhabit, confront, and speak to the drawings of Bonnie Lebesch, which are showing throughout the month of September at Wolverine Farm Letterpress & Publick House. All artists are welcome!

Our 2018 Poet Laureate Natalie Giarratano will host this second edition of the responding to art workshop. Be ready to react, take notes, and listen to the artwork. And listen to the artist, too, who will be on hand to discuss her work and answer your questions.

This event is free and open to the public!

Natalie Giarratano is the author of Big Thicket Blues (Sundress Publications, 2017) and Leaving Clean, winner of the 2013 Liam Rector First Book Prize in Poetry (Briery Creek Press, 2013). Her poems have appeared in Beltway Poetry, Tupelo Quarterly, TYPO, Tinderbox, and American Literary Review, among others. She edits and lives in Fort Collins with her partner and daughter and is the city’s 2018 Poet Laureate.

Bonnie Lebesch is a Fort Collins abstract painter and mixed media artist. Her life and work are informed by practices in mindfulness, intentional healing, and tai chi. Bonnie had a career as an artist and designer in Seattle’s high-tech industry before dedicating herself fully to fine art in 2006.
