Dorothy Tanner Light Sculptures in “Lady of the Lake”


AE05BESTBETS1.jpgVisual Art/Dance: Looking at—and dancing with—light sculptures
By Ray Mark Rinaldi, The Denver Post
Through June 30: Artist Dorothy Tanner is known for working in acrylic, a modern material that she imbues with timeless qualities through the addition of LED lights. Her sculptures, ranging from abstract shapes to, more recently, anthropomorphic figures, glow with a warm familiarity. Tanner’s new works come together for the exhibit “Creatures from Left Field” at the Lakewood Cultural Center. They’ll also serve as hand-held props for Zikr Dance Ensemble’s “Lady of the Lake,” which will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the center. The exhibit, through June 30, is free. Tickets for the dance are $16-$28. Lakewood Cultural Center, 480 S. Allison Parkway, Lakewood. 303-987-7000 or lakewood.org.
