Arts @ The Feed & Grain will exhibit the work of artists, Monica Deming and Alex Alvis, whose work revolves around memory and time gone by and will feature the Memories Project.

Painter and illustration artist, Monica Deming is a longtime Northern Colorado resident and arts professor at CSU. Deming will showcase work that "deals with the transience of memory - and how undependable our memories are." According to the artist everything she creates is an attempt to relive information -"to share it hoping to gain insight on what is real."

Alex Alvis, has lived in Colorado most of her life. Alvis's unique bronze sculptures focus on horses, their spirit, their nature, and their beauty. While always an artist it is only in the last five years that Alvis has been working as a professional sculptor.

"After seeing Monica's beautiful paintings that referenced farm land and history, I knew they would be an ideal fit for the historic Feed & Grain;" said curator Megan Tracy. Tracy asked Alex to join in the show shortly after. “I was looking for a sculptor who created contemporary farm animals to complement Monica's work.” The art work helps complete the story about the Feed and Grain, conceptually through art.

This exhibit goes hand-in-hand with the ongoing Memories Project, an effort focused on documenting and preserving the rich history of The Feed & Grain. Currently data, photos, ephemera and artifacts are on display at In The Meantime Gallery.
