“In Out, Up Down” by Steamboat Springs artist Susan Hover Oehme is one of the works featured in “Impressions In Ink.” A public reception focusing on artists from Colorado’s Creative Districts will be held 5:30-7:30 p.m. April 5 at CMC Steamboat Springs.

Colorado Mountain College ArtShare and Colorado Creative Districts will present an artists’ reception for the printmakers’ exhibition entitled “Impressions In Ink” at CMC Steamboat Springs on April 5 as part of Steamboat Creates First Friday Art Walk.

Colorado has 20 state-certified Creative Districts. Colorado Mountain College, Carbondale Arts and Steamboat Creates are curating a series of exhibitions that connect and promote artists from many of these districts. “Impressions In Ink” is the first in this series that features artists from the Steamboat Creates, Carbondale Creative District, Mancos Arts District, Crested Butte and others.

The Creative District certification process focuses on defining specific geographic areas that can attract artists and creative entrepreneurs to a community, infuse new energy and innovation, and enhance economic and civic capital.

The “Impressions In Ink” reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on April 5, in the lobby of the campus’s academic and student services building. Admission is free and appetizers and beverages will be served.

Colorado Mountain College Steamboat is at 1275 Crawford Avenue, Steamboat Springs.

The exhibit is currently installed, and will be on view through May 1.
