Artworks Loveland presents the exhibition, Creators/Makers/Innovators, which explores the process of combining art and technology. This theme allows for unique works to be made using a wide variety of ideas and mediums. The exhibition also reveals the unseen “creative process”, the experimentation, trials and failures that serve as the ultimate teacher on the way to realizing a finished product.
Technology and art serve as great partners. Both areas, whether focussed on the technical or the creative, can be appreciated for their imaginative reaches as well as their utilitarian functions. Entrepreneurial makers are inquiring and exploring, building innovations that change the way we interact with the world. For contemporary artists, technology is a tool, both a medium and a subject to explore.
What we share in common is a penchant for problem solving; we seek to innovate and improve over what currently exists. Through thoughtful collaboration, research and analysis, we can bridge the gaps that exist between the two fields of technology and art, for the betterment of both. As Albert Einstein best said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it. “
Portraits of Artworks Artistsby Ronda Stone

Four months ago, Ronda Stone decided to start a new project… photographing all the willing artists in the Artworks Studio. In her words, “This decision has a two-part goal. It forces me to photograph and complete a project I promised to do, and, it helped me get to know these artists better (since I am one of the new artists to the studios). It has turned out to be even more of a rewarding experience than I could have ever imagined. We have laughed together, been vulnerable, put ourselves in an uncomfortable situation, and done more than we thought we could.”
Ronda’s personal goal was to take the artist and photograph them in a different way than other people see them. In some cases that happened. In other cases it took on a different form. Ronda commented on how happy she was with the results, “The hallway exhibit is an example of my relationship with these artists, as well as their agreeing to go outside their box. Thank you to the awesome artists at Artworks Loveland!”
