Artists 4 Art
Artists 4 Art seeks to showcase the work of local artists that not only create art but have also made their careers as art advocates in Northern Colorado. Each artist featured was invited to exhibit as part of group who are working to make our community a place where art can thrive and be accessible to the public. The resulting exhibition is a diverse look into local art makers and supporters.
MAX AYARS & LAURA TRUITT
Co-founders Max Ayars and Laura Truitt started Artisan Framing as an entrepreneurial venture that allows them to continue to be tied to the arts. They have bi-monthly shows that focus on Fort Collins and emerging area artists, and offer a wide range of picture framing services. They've enjoyed doing framing for local artists and CSU faculty and staff which allows them to be connected to the art community in Fort Collins. Their next show features local artist Marc Leverette’s larger than life portraits, with an opening reception on February 6th.

As a student at Colorado State University my MFA emphasis in Sculpture was completed in the Fall of 2007. During that time I was offered the opportunity of employment at CSU as the Programs and Exhibition Coordinator at the University Art Museum. My work has continued professionally and creatively since that time. I have a strong appreciation and care for the museum at CSU and the creative practice.
Marc Leverette initially began his photography career while a student in south Florida. By 1998, at the age of nineteen, he had won Photographer of the Year from the Professional Photographers of Southwest Florida. That same year, as well as the following, he was awarded both Commercial Photographer of the Year and Illustrative Photographer of the Year from the same organization. In 2000 Marc pursued graduate studies in the northeast, earning an MA from New York University and a doctorate from Rutgers University. After a brief period in academia, where he published several books on popular culture, Marc settled down in Fort Collins and returned to his love of image-making. Marc works extensively with local artists and bands to create images that represent their efforts.
As part of my commitment to Community Arts, I am the publisher of the NorthernColoradoArtNews blog (northerncoloradoartnews.blogspot.com). This blog hosts announcements, reviews, and dialogue for artists of all disciplines in Northern Colorado. I am also excited to be teaching an Internship Seminar class through CSU’s LEAP Institute for the Arts this Semester. During this class, students from CSU form partnerships with Artists and Organizations in the Northern Colorado Community.
I have lived and worked in Fort Collins since 2006. After receiving my MFA in Drawing at Colorado State University I have been actively involved in the arts - locally and elsewhere. Specific to Fort Collins, I was the Executive Director at the now defunct artists’ residency, ART342 for 3 years. I also served on the curriculum committee for the Arts Incubator of the Rockies and participated in corresponding workshops and programs. By teaching as an adjunct lecturer and occasionally jurying shows, I supplement my income as a professional artist. I believe when artists advocate for fellow artists, make challenging work and engage in critical discussion, a community like Fort Collins can and will support contemporary art.
Stanley Scott lives and works in Fort Collins, Colorado. He holds a BFA from Baylor University and a Master’s degree in printmaking from Colorado State University. His work has been shown and published internationally and has been featured in several respected national and international juried exhibitions. He works primarily in drawing and printmaking processes, as a fine artist and illustrator but he feels equally at home with a paintbrush or skill saw. He has installed art exhibitions professionally for the last thirteen years, most recently at the Lincoln Center art gallery, CSU’s Hatton Gallery, the Loveland Art Museum. He currently serves as manager for the Community Creative Center galleries at the old Carnegie Library in downtown Fort Collins. He has taught independent studio art classes and workshops, including printmaking classes at Anderson Ranch, and at the college level for the last five years. He serves as an adjunct with several colleges in the Front Range; teaching art appreciation and studio foundation courses, from intro and advanced drawing, to figure drawing and painting courses.
I am a recent graduate of Colorado State University majoring in art education. Being a Fort Collins native, I have loved the opportunity to grow up in a city so dedicated to the arts. I developed my passion for art through my high school art classes, where my art teachers inspired me to be a teacher myself. I have since then dedicated myself to sharing and feeding my passion for art in the community. My experiences have included many volunteer hours in art classrooms of all levels, an internship with Beet Street and Arts Incubator of the Rockies, and working through the CSU Lory Student Center Arts Program and the Curfman Gallery managing art in the collection and assisting in the setup of exhibitions. As I become an art teacher, I hope to share my passion in art with my students, and present them not only with a new way to view the world, but also themselves.
