MSAA is very proud to present our 2012 Art Showcase – celebrating the work of artists affected by MS.
October Artist of the Month:
Thomas Geier – Boulder, CO
“This painting depicts the Crystal Mill perched precariously above the Crystal River just outside of Marble, CO. It’s original function, as a part of the nearby Crystal Mine operation, has long been lost. It has, however – through changes unforeseen – gained a greater purpose as an iconic symbol of Colorado’s historic mining past. It has become one of the most recognized and photographed symbols of mining ingenuity in the state of Colorado.
So it is with my contest with MS. As I have been forced to alter my physical expectations of my natural aging process, I have been blessed with the positive side of change as I grow as an artist. I hope you find inspiration in this unique structure, still anchored on solid rock.”
