Visual Art

Today. Mixed media. Veteran Loveland artist Dave Phelps uses box tops, discarded televisions, bar codes and other detritus to create eye-grabbing, mixed-media works that comment on the consumer culture that produced them. He won first place in 2008 edition of the Rocky Mountain Biennial at the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art. Phelps is featured in a solo exhibition running through April 11 at the Sandra Phillips Gallery, 744 Santa Fe Drive. He will present a free talk on his work at 6 tonight. 303-573-5969 or thesandraphillipsgallery.com. Kyle MacMillan
