House Works - Installation Exhibit
with Melanie Walker and George Peters

Add to your calendar
Date: January 27, 9:00 am
Location: The Art Center
Details: The house is a nest, a place of retreat, a collection of life memories, and a shelter from storms. Sometimes it is a prison made to escape from, a place to return to. It is our societal glue, placing ourselves into a community of other houses in suburbs, cities and village communities. Our house mortgages hold us there. Our families grow up there. 

Our roots to place are also our house foundations. It was not so long ago that our inherent nomadic wanderings took us to places that we could plant and harvest. We stayed and built houses of sticks, mud and straw from the earth we tilled. Our houses shaped us. They formed our cocoon and grew with us. Even our technology connections return us to our “home” page. House Works is a collection of photos, sculptures and installations of Melanie Walker and George Peters exploring the varied themes of the house and the home. 

Gallery hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 9am - 4pm. Admission is $3 for non-members. Admission is free for members, all students with current student ID, and children under 12. Tuesdays are always free thanks to Allied Insurance and Home Loan Investments. 


Melanie and George own Airwork Studio in Boulder, Colorado. They exhibited their kites at The Art Center in 2011. 


Exhibition Sponsored by Flint & Elisabeth Ogle and Xcel Energy
