About This Event

In 2019 Niza Knoll enlisted her book club full of professional artists to bring the scenes and characters of a favorite read to life through their artwork. The exhibit, featuring works inspired by the novel “A Gentleman in Moscow” was very well-received so she is revisiting the concept. The heartbreaking, yet beautiful “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens is the new book of choice to be visually interpreted by Nancy Enyart (Denver), Karen Gregory (Parker), Niza Knoll (Englewood), Ann E Lacy (Denver), Sally Lewis (Denver), Pat Lickly (Denver), Aliki McCain (Denver), Kristy Melodia (Denver), Georgianne Rollman (Denver), Ellen Reynolds (Denver) and Paula Romero Schmitt (Centennial). The show opens Friday December 10, 2021 with a chance to visit with the artists during a reception from 5-8 pm at Niza Knoll Gallery 915 Santa Fe Drive. The show runs through January 22, 2022. To view work online and see current gallery hours visit www.nizaknollgallery.com. \ \ “Where the Crawdads Sing” is described by Amazon.com as “…at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.” \ \ The story, set in coastal North Carolina immerses the reader into a lush and lively landscape. The artwork created for this show gives life to this marshy environment and its inhabitants while also showcasing the inner life of the main character Kya who raises herself after being abandoned by her family. Viewers will be absorbed back into the narrative through paintings, ceramics and delightful Papier-mâché creatures featured prominently throughout the gallery.\ \ Niza Knoll Gallery is located at 915 Santa Fe Drive in Denver’s popular Art District on Santa Fe and specializes in intriguing conceptual exhibits, participates in First and Third Friday, private concerts and gue
