About the Exhibition
Artists Lorri Acott and Adam Schultz have joined forces to create a compelling new exhibition of original sculpture and paintings for the Museum of Art Fort Collins entitled Beauty and the Beast: An Unexpected Journey. This two-person show features their individual works of art, as well as a new series of collaborative sculptures. Celebrating ideas around unexpected relationships, duality, and the power of myth, this reinterpretation of the tale as old as time seeks to inspire a new conversation about what we really define as beautiful, and exactly who the beast may be.
Lorri Acott sculpts long-legged figures and animals that reflect intimate moments in our lives: a feeling, an interaction, a realization, an emotion. Simplified, without the details of faces or clothing, they rely on our innate understanding of human gestures to inform us. Her impressionistic figurative sculptures reside in private and public collections throughout the US and abroad. A favorite of collectors and critics alike, Lorri’s work receives a powerful emotional response wherever it is placed. Her work reaches for the universal in our innermost beings as it explores and examines the question of our existence. A mixture of heart-warming whimsy and a deep understanding of our feelings make Lorri’s work approachable and intimate.
