Artist Reception on November 10
The Tointon Gallery for Visual Arts, 651 10th Ave., features Denver-based artist Roy Anneberg from Friday, Nov. 3 through December 8. Come to the artist reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 10.
Once piece, which includes Wild “Buffalo Bill” Cody imagery speaks volumes about the type of work he is bringing to Greeley’s public art gallery.
Regarding his artwork, Anneberg says, “Along a more philosophical and conceptual level, I feel that it is important to ask questions regarding reality: how we perceive it, and how we come to understand it. The meanings that we associate with objects of the material world are meanings that we come to understand through education and experience. Through the use of juxtaposition, I attempt to call into question the very means by which we place certain meanings with certain objects. Is this true reality? Is there an ulterior reality? Or do we live in a world of illusion?”
Some of Anneberg’s accolades include being selected as the featured artist of the month at denverartists.com in 2006. He has had artwork published in academic journals. In addition to shows at the Metropolitan State College of Denver and at the University of Denver. He’s also earned Honorable Mentions at Next Gallery Open Show in Denver and the Jefferson County Art Teachers Juried Exhibition.

The gallery has the mission to expose the community to a variety of media, artist styles, and skill levels. The Tointon Gallery is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Admission is free.
