This July, Denver-based art photographer Scott Takeda will team up with his oil painter mother Tomiko Watada Takeda for a "Mother and Son" exhibition at The IDEA Place in Rocky Ford, Colorado. The exhibit will be part of Rocky Ford's "First Friday" tradition designed to bring art lovers to the historic downtown.
Scott will showcase his current Scene. Street. Story. art show, and his mother Tomiko will display her contemporary realism oils (like the above oil painting titled Sunflowers Squared Up) that have attracted fans throughout Colorado
"I'm excited to share the stage with Mom," said Scott. "When I was growing up, I always saw her painting with her canvases, and our house always had her work on the walls. So I always looked up to her. And to be able to have an art show with her is a thrill. I feel all grown up."
The show will open the week after the Independence Day weekend on Friday July 10th at the IDEA Place Gallery at 408 Main Street in Rocky Ford. It will run through early August. For more information on gallery hours, call the gallery at 719-469-2568.
