Event Details

Featuring art from Richard Terrell and Sandra J. Hopkins

With artist talks and interviews

Complimentary dessert and drinks will be provided


In celebration of Ruminate's Issue No. 40: Nowhere Near, join us for an intimate gathering to slow down and encounter the vast landscapes of art and story. We'll hear from the artists about their artistic process, about times when they've felt nowhere near anything or anyone, and how they see art as a healing gift in their life. 

We'll also hear from the Ruminate staff, and guests will have the chance to participate and respond to to the theme of Nowhere Near with their own writing or sketching. 

Original artwork, signed prints, and Ruminate merchandise will be available for purchase. Proceeds will benefit Ruminate, a reader-supported magazine to help you pause, encounter honest storytelling, and awaken your heart. Event is curated by local Fort Collins artist Scott Laumann


Richard TerrellRichard Terrell is an emeritus professor of fine arts and humanities at Doane College, Crete, Nebraska. He is a painter, author, and theater performer and maintains a studio in the Burkholder Project in Lincoln’s Haymarket district. As previous acting director of Ad Lib, a Colorado-based retreat for the arts, he facilitated group discussions on issues pertaining to arts, faith, and community. He has shown in numerous group and solo juried exhibitions.



Sandra J. HopkinsSandra J. Hopkins is a fiber artist who lives in Northern Colorado. Ten years ago she began processing and ultimately healing from personal trauma. During this time she put up her paintbrushes and pulled down her grandmother’s sewing machine. As she sewed, she was unable to throw out scraps and remnants of fabric, hoping to find a way not to waste anything. Those remnants held histories and symbolized people in their perceived raggedness. In her quilts, Sandra reclaims scraps and quilts them together restoring and witnessing to wholeness, or holiness, revealed in disconnected, ordinary histories. Sandra has shown in group and juried exhibitions in the US and Canada, including Denver Art Museum’s SPUN Community Quilt exhibit, The Lincoln Center Gallery in Fort Collins, and the Lookout Gallery in Vancouver, B.C. Sandra will also be teaching a creative workshop at the Ruminate Retreat: Living Awake during the day on October 1st. 

*Can't make it to the reception? Visit the exhibit during the open gallery hours: Wednesday, September 28—Saturday, October 1st from noon-six p.m.
