The Boulder Creative Collective (the BCC) seeks to bring together, support, and cultivate the diverse artistic energies of the Boulder community by offering gallery, event, and studio space; representation, career development and networking opportunities; workshops and classes to artists and the public; and provocative, stimulating experiences to all. Wagner Custom Skis has partnered with The Boulder Creative Collective on a series of artist skis for the 2019-2020 winter ski season. These designs have been curated by four different artists, each personalized with their art. Each of our ‘Artist Collection’ designs are an additional $300 which goes right back to the artist. We hope you are as inspired as we are by these incredible topsheets.
Danielle DeRoberts (onerary)
Originally from N.Y. and San Francisco, CA- Danielle DeRoberts (Onerary) is a full time artist and collaborator :: painting/drawing, textiles, mural art, graphic design + art installation :: currently residing in Telluride, Colorado. Danielle’s unique technique of embroidering into her paintings, back lighting and expanding them onto walls, creates textured pieces that spring to life--- transforming the two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional installations. Through her art, Danielle desires to create a space where the audience feels welcome to be completely themselves. Her paintings are dream like vessels for her to communicate and she hopes her own creative expression will inspire the viewer to connect with their own soul voice.
Reed Weily is fascinated with nostalgia, obsolete technology and ephemera from the late 20th century. A self-taught artist, his influences include 1980s and 1990s popular culture, color television, cable television, music television, satellite television, PPV, ESPN, Nike, futurists, optimists, Bruce Leroy, Chris Knight and Pharrell. Weily’s work is also informed by the decade he spent traveling in China. “Shanghai and Hong Kong are the most inspiring places on Earth. The skyline colors on the Bund and Victoria Harbor embody the vast and extraordinary capability of unleashed human potential. If you lose faith in humanity’s ability to reinvent itself and redefine the future, go to China.” Weily is best known for his “humanoid” or “robot” collages made from internationally sourced vintage stickers. These sculptural, skull-like collages, are comprised of thousands of stickers, layered on top of one another to create dimension.
I was born in Ohio in 1971 and have lived in Boulder for past 20 years. I have a dog walking business to support myself and my art. With the dogs, I’m outside everyday in nature and the compositions of my paintings are influenced by Colorado’s mountains and landscapes. I’m also into textiles and colors from India, Morocco, Indonesia, and Japan - places I’ve visited or want to travel to. I began this year of painting attempting to break out of old patterns and re-examining assumptions about my beliefs, habits and work. My hope was to express myself more genuinely. I’ve labeled myself as a colorist - I love knowing the subtleties of mixing paint and putting colors next to each other on a canvas that feel unrelated but somehow work. I’ve exhibited my work in many Boulder and regional galleries, a New York gallery, and the Denver Art Museum in the textile department. My artwork has also been purchased by many private collectors and several public collections including Children’s Hospital and Keys Commercial. I have a degree in Art History from Miami University.
Lindee Zimmer is a public artist, painter, curator, collaborator and teacher living in Denver. Follow textures, lines and scattered stripes, and dive into the imagination; Lindee’s art stems from the colors of tropical birds, the cracks in the walls she draws her murals, energy of the universe that connects us. She draws off the patterns in leaves, she paints the vibrations of love, she sketches the frivolous buoyancy that brought us all to search for art to be curated in the first place. Anyway, make yourself at home, you are part of it now.
