Museum fellows present their work on Friday


The 2021 class of Aspen Art Museum Artist Fellows will unveil their projects and share them with the community on Friday evening.

This year’s group includes a ceramist Louise Deroualle, painters Dave Durrance, Monica Goldsmith and Lindsay Jones, photo artist Trace Nichols and installation artist Lara Whitley.

The presentations will take place on the roof of the museum from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday with a reception to follow.



Running since 2018, the nine-month program provides support and mentorship each year to a group of six artists based between Aspen and Rifle. The group meets once a month with museum staff and visits each other while each fellow develops a scholarship project.

For 2022, for example, Whitley is organizing a “Forest Spiral” earthwork as an extension of her “Earthly Palace Forest Shrine,” a short-lived piece she premiered at the Aspen Space Station on Aspen Mountain in July. In her presentation, Whitley will preview a short film by Johier Begay on “Earthly Palace” work and share details of the ongoing “Forest Spiral”.
