THE COLOR OF LIGHT A National Exhibit
1/12/19 to 5/5/19The Annual Pikes Peak Pastel Society National Exhibition Sangre de Cristo Arts Center 210 N. Santa Fe Ave Pueblo, CO 81003 Artist’s Opening Reception Friday, February 1, 2019, 5pm to 7pm Awards $500 in cash: Best of Show: $250; 1st Place: $150; 2nd Place: $100. Two Honorable Mentions and the People’s Choice Award will receive ribbons. Juror We are very excited to have Radeaux of John-Deaux Art Gallery, Pueblo, CO as our juror. A veteran of many art exhibits, both as an artist and as a juror, Radeaux has owned Pueblo’s oldest gallery for over thirty-five years and has represented many of Pueblo’s leading artists. Colorado’s diverse fauna is the inspiration for Radeaux. He spends many hours in the field studying birds and other animals. When he returns to the studio, he paints what he has seen in his unique style, a combination of detail and restraint, repetition and rhythm. His paintings also explore the patterning, colors and geometrics found in nature. His art also examines spatial relationships and comparisons to stylized depictions of nature from various cultures. Described by the late Jack Seilheimer, former Dean of Science at CSU-Pueblo, “He’s really a distinguished field ornithologist. He is truly both scientist and artist.” Radeaux has provided illustrations for a variety of publications including all the illustrations for the landmark Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas 1 and the recently published Atlas 2.
