CMC ArtShare will present an opening reception Jan. 12 for “You Changed (Nature),” the work of Ben Timpson, an artist specializing in interdisciplinary media including photography, painting and sculpture. The free reception is open to the public and the artist will be in attendance.

Timpson, who is currently the studio coordinator of photography and new media at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, has exhibited nationally and internationally including at the Allegany National Photography Exhibition. Shannon Thomas Perich, curator of the photographic history collection of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, served as a juror at that exhibit.

Timpson was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, and in 2015 earned a Master of Fine Arts in photography from Indiana University.

“You Changed (Nature)” will include transfers on aluminum sealed in resin and original organic compositions encased in wooden towers. Timpson uses natural and found objects such as twigs and bugs to create otherworldly images.

The opening will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Jan. 12 at the CMC ArtShare Gallery at Morgridge Commons, 815 Cooper Ave., 2nd floor, in downtown Glenwood Springs. Light refreshments will be served.
