Three artists are contributing works to a Joining Forces art exhibition that opens Oct. 8 at the Visual and Performing Arts Gallery at Front Range Community College.

The artists reception is from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 11.

Emery works in oils. Primarily a representational artist, he is interested in many subjects found throughout Colorado. He was invited to participate in the Colorado Governor’s Invitational Art Show and Sale in 2009, 2010, and 2011 at the Loveland Museum/Gallery. See his website.

Wolff’s art includes painting and drawing. “My interests in art are looking at reality and transforming it … into something else,” Wolff writes on his website. “I practice a type of contemporary realism, but I don’t want my work to merely reflect reality. The true value in art is creating something that cannot be explained.”

Eggers artist’s eye focuses on painting vintage automobiles, motorcycles, and tractors. “There’s something about these machines and their cosmetic personalities that really speak to me,” he writes on his website. Eggers was the featured artist in the July 2010 edition of Colorado Magazine Online.

The exhibit runs through Nov. 2. The gallery is Room C1660 at the Westminster Campus, 3645 W. 112th Ave., Westminster.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. Admission is free. The campus is an RTD bus stop, and free parking also is available.
