Mirada Fine Art Unveils 2012 Summer/Fall Exhibit Schedule

Steve Sonnen & Jenni Sonnen, Owners of Mirada Fine Art
We've just released our 2012 Summer/Fall show schedule and we're thrilled about our line-up of exciting award-winning artists. You'll notice some brand new names as well as some Mirada crowd-pleasers.  Below you will see a synopsis of each show...make sure you mark your calendars!

Andrew Baird
Beyond the Lines

Artist Reception: May 11th, 6-9 pm
Exhibition: May 12 - June 11

Andrew Baird at Mirada Fine Art
In 2011, the editors of 5280 magazine declared Andrew Baird the best artist in the state of Colorado. After examining his remarkable work, it is easy to understand why. At first glance, Mr. Baird's paintings seem to resemble the work of Jackson Pollock, but when the linear portraits begin to appear, the striking differences become clear. Using a simple 'stir stick,' Baird drips paint onto a canvas on the floor - no brushes are ever used. The eventual outcome is truly spectacular: remarkable portraits. landscapes, and American icons...all in Mr. Baird's one-of-a-kind style. Vibrant color combinations allow the subject to intriguingly appear and disappear, actively engaging the viewer. 

Jennyfer Stratman
Internal Landscapes

Artist Reception: Friday, June 22nd, 6-9 pm

Exhibition: June 23 - July 17

Jennyfer Stratman at Mirada Fine Art, Nexus 5, Mixed Media & Bronze
Jennyfer Stratman’s goal is to transform her experiences and interpretation of the world into the visual language of sculpture. It’s what inspires her to create. Her work reveals a personal journey by contemplating the interior landscape of the psyche and how this resonates with her experience of the exterior world. The narrative qualities in her work evoke an emotional response that speaks broadly about the experience of being human.

Jennyfer Stratman was raised in Arizona, and now divides her time between Phoenix and Melbourne, Australia. Her work is in numerous corporate collections as well as hundreds of private collections worldwide.

It is here where he was first inspired to express nature’s limitless splendor through his art. "I find myself using nature’s elements, along with its’ shapes and images, and subsequently interpreting them on canvas in a bolder, more graphic way.”
