Also in the Galleries

The Arvada Center’s fall exhibitions explore the world of art created by fire. Each of the Arvada Center’s three galleries will feature three distinct mediums: iron in the Main Gallery, ceramics in the Upper Gallery, and glass in the Theatre Gallery. Each medium and piece has their own unique results but all require the use of fire and the control of it to help achieve the finished work.
