(ROCKY FORD, CO) More than 210 enthusiastic art lovers attended the "Mother and Son" art show at the IDEA Place Gallery in Rocky Ford, Colorado. The show featured oil paintings from Tomiko Watada Takeda and art photography by Denver-based art photographer Scott Takeda.
"There are a lot of people here, said Scott looking at the crowd. "My dad and grandmother grew up in Rocky Ford, and it's always been a fairly small town. Yet it looks like at least a third of the residents turned out. I even talked so some folks who drove more almost a hundred miles to attend. Even the local newspaper sent a reporter.
"For me, the best part of this show has been I get to show my work along side of my mom. She's been a driving influence of art in my life. She initially did it as a hobby, and is now doing it professionally. I've helped her set up her art shows all around the metro area of Denver, so it's nice that I get to share this experience with her."
The show runs four weeks through August. To see Scott's Scene Street Story art photos beside Tomiko's contemporary realist oils paintings, visit the IDEA Place Gallery at 408 Main Street in Rocky Ford. Colorado 81067. For more information, contact gallery curator Nancy Aschermann at 719-469-2568,
