COLORADO, DESTINATION: ART!
35th Annual Sculpture in the Park
by Wendy L. Pitton R.
A collector’s tradition, Sculpture in the Park is a destination that continues to exhibit a level of exceptional artistry and touted as “America’s largest outdoor juried sculpture show and sale” on their website. Loveland is a natural scenic beauty and combined with colorful, delicate and powerful sculptures it is truly a destination for not only collectors, but novice alike.
As Sculpture in the Park celebrates 35 years of bringing the sculptural arts to the public there are several artists that are celebrating along with them a long standing of being selected through the juried process.
Carolyn L. Barlock will join Sculpture in the Park for her 22nd year. As she explained, “I am honored every year to participate.” Barlock had an exciting 2017, “My friend Father Andre arranged to have his Holiness Pope Francis accept a chalice. The chalice was presented during the International Assembly Conference of the Aperolic Union of the Clergy on November 16, 2017 in the Hall of the Consistory at the Vatican, I felt so honored and blessed,” smiles Barlock.
Barlock has found inspiration from everything around her and has allowed herself to “have fun” with her art as she states it, which is why the work presented at this year’s exhibition is so special. From frogs to lilies to dragon flies that look as though they are about to fly off the vase, Barlock continues to elevate her artistic style with her chiseled luster porcelain. Exploring the different styles of porcelain that Barlock is able to locate has only added to the artistic dimension that she creates; nothing is out of this artists reach; goblets, vases, jewelry boxes, decanters and so much more.
Looking forward to seeing old friends at SCULPTURE IN THE PARK in Loveland, Colo.

Sneak preview of some of the artwork for the show...
Very pleased to have been juried into the Colorado Governor's Art Show again this year. Opening Gala is May 11th.
The 27th annual Governor’s Art Show - the largest fine art show to exclusively feature Colorado artists - will bring together 56 of the state’s most talented artists, Legacy Artists, Sandy Scott and Jill Soukup, and thousands of visitors for a month long-exhibit at the Loveland Museum/Gallery. The Gala and Opening Night Preview party on May 11 is the kick-off to the show and a chance for art buyers to be the first to view and purchase one-of-a-kind pieces. The art show has established itself as one of the top two art shows in the state, and among the many reasons Loveland is at the heart of the Arts in Colorado.
I hope to see a lot of Friends there Friday Night, so get your tickets and purchase a piece of art! A share of the profits goes to the Thompson Education Foundation Homeless Assistance Program thanks to the Loveland Rotary Clubs.
Father Andre Y Sebastian Mahanna arranged to have His Holiness Pope Francis accept a Barlock Chalice. The Chalice was presented to His Holiness Pope Francis by Msgr. Giovanni Fusco, Papal Chaplin, Secretary General for the International Confederation of Apostolic Union of Clergy and Laity, Rome, Italy, during The International Assembly of the Conference of the Apostolic Union of the Clergy in the Hall of the Consistory in the Vatican.

Denver-based artist Carolyn Barlock’s love of art began when her grandmother took her to the Colorado Institute of Art (now the Art Institute of Colorado) for summer drawing classes when she was 9 years old. Her grandmother, an artist herself who painted on porcelain, recognized the talent in her granddaughter. “She was the grandmother that always had watercolors, paints, and stuff to draw with,” Barlock remembers. “She encouraged all her grandchildren in art, but I was the only one who ever took it up.”
After receiving her associate’s degree in 1967, Barlock began working in porcelain. At first she painted scenes and portraits on her pieces, but she then moved into using techniques of ancient porcelain decoration and enameled art inspired by works from the Chinese Ming dynasty. “If you look in history museums, the one thing that always impresses me about porcelain is its lasting quality,” she says. For the last few decades she has focused on the use of 22-karat Florentine gold and ancient Persian lusters on her works, earning international recognition. “I love art that will stand the test of time and span generations, whether it’s sculpture, paintings, porcelain, or beadwork,” she says. “That’s what I love about porcelain—it’s not only useable and functional but lasting in quality and beauty.” --Joe Kovack
