All works in this slide show are from the Collection of Millie Yawn unless otherwise noted.

If you haven’t yet seen it, don’t miss this last chance to catch the retrospective of artwork by the late Louis Cicotello at the Gallery of Contemporary Art at UCCS (complete details HERE), a local artist and teacher whose work and presence touched every corner of the arts community. The slide show above provides a great primer if you’re unfamiliar with his work, but there are dozens more works in the show not pictured. Below the closing event information you’ll find our original remembrance of Cicotello after his death last March.

Exhibit Closing Day, Tuesday, March 27th 2012, 12 to 6pm

GOCA is hosting a closing exhibition sale of approximately 20 works from the collection of Millie Yawn. The works will stay on sale through the close of the exhibit on TUESDAY, MARCH 27TH.

GOCA’s sales percentage will be donated to the Louis M. Cicotello Award in the Visual Arts Fund.

Donations of $30 or more to the fund receive a copy of the limited edition, full-color catalog. Click here to donate to the fund | email gallery@uccs.edu for more information.

This retrospective exhibition features artworks from 1971 – 2008, highlighting the significant periods in Louis Cicotello’s prolific and fascinating art career. A 72-page, full color catalog publication will accompany the exhibition. Cicotello was well-known and beloved regionally, having moved to Colorado Springs from Kansas City, MO. in 1984 to serve as Chair of the Visual Arts Department at UCCS. Cicotello was Professor of Fine Arts through 2007 at UCCS and inspired countless students in their own careers. As an artist, Cicotello pushed the boundaries of the media he worked with–from human-scale plexiglass towers of his early years to mixed-media assemblage, collage, and free-standing sculpture.

This survey features work that has rarely been seen in regional exhibitions, with multiple collectors loaning their work from across the country for the exhibition.

    Hi All,
    The official sale took place last Wednesday but there are still a number of works available from the selection that Millie Yawn has made available (from her collection). The advantage of coming today (free parking all over campus btw as it is Spring Break) is that you can take the work with you starting at 5 pm. There are a number of works priced under $100 up to a few thousand for larger sculptures. We will likely be there past 6 pm so please do come by towards close if that is the earliest you can get there. Call the gallery with any questions: 719-255-3504. Thanks Big Something!
