Local student's artwork featured in Springs show

Andrew Bailey, a student at Fountain-Fort Carson High School, has several pieces entered into a juried art show at Cottonwood Center for the Arts in Colorado Springs, 427 E. Colorado Ave.

"Paper Tiger" is open through Dec. 24 and is composed of artists working in all mediums on paper. One of Bailey's pieces, "Blinded," is pictured here.

The phrase "paper tiger" means one that is outwardly powerful or dangerous but inwardly weak or ineffectual. Artists were asked for a transposition of this meaning - works on paper, a simple, well-known, and accessible medium - that are fierce, meaningful, soulful, and grab you in your tracks.

This call was exclusively for works on paper, of any size and theme. Works were juried in to the show based solely on content and the impact of the artist's message.

The center is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, and 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. Saturday. Learn more at
