I wasn’t born with a green thumb. For decades I’d try—and try!—to keep plants alive, but after a few weeks, they’d just succumb to their inevitable, albeit probably sped up, deaths. Then when I became a mother, a well-meaning friend sent me a plant; it must have been the lack of care that year that made it thrive. And so began me doing less to make my plants grow. Suddenly, it all seemed more manageable. On one extra frustrating day during the pandemic, I headed off to the plant store. I needed a big plant, or rather my soul did. It was time. I was ready. As I stuffed a large monstera into the front seat of my car, I realized something that once made me feel annoyed and overwhelmed to deal with now made me feel downright giddy. Somehow I'd changed without noticing. Since then it’s grown two new leaves. I patiently watched the first one each day as it slowly unfurled, a little scarred but intact. But the second one came as a surprise one morning—big, beautiful, perfect, beaming. I had looked away and it just…showed up. It reminded me how sometimes we try and try and eventually might persevere, bruised and battered. Yet every now and then life hands you something out of the blue so absolutely perfect, it feels like a gift. You don’t always see growth unless you stop looking. You can overdo it trying every time—overwatering, overthinking, overdoing. Sometimes the pause is where the magic happens.

At Junkyard Social Club, there are few rules. Outside, along the walls of the 6,000-square-foot playground, a hand-stenciled sign declares the only tenet: “Respect the Junk.” That and “Respect Each Other” are the guiding principles of the new, all-ages social club. One part adventure playground, one part community center, and one part “rebel museum,” Junkyard Social Club is not just for kids, but for adventure, learning and connection by members of all ages. More concisely, as executive director Jill Katzenberger puts it, “It’s a space for creative and curious play.”

“OFTEN WE’LL HAVE A KIDS PARTY HERE AND THE ADULTS WILL SAY, ‘WAIT, CAN I HAVE MY PARTY HERE?’ AND IT’S LIKE, OF COURSE! THIS PLACE IS NOT JUST FOR KIDS.” - JILL

“Sometimes that looks like science and engineering, and sometimes that looks like music and art. In a lot of ways, we see so much crossover between art and science,” she explains. “The skills that I think we will always try to focus on are the ones that help someone think in new ways. It’s about having the guts to try something new and think about it differently.”

A typical week at Junkyard Social Club includes everything from school field trips and hands-on kids’ science events to open play hours where kids can explore and parents can sip coffee and catch up. In the evenings, expect open mic nights, concerts, game nights and dance parties. Currently, the club is soft opened and will continue to expand its offerings as summer approaches. Food trucks are definitely on the lineup, and beer and wine should be on the menu soon. “Often we’ll have a kids party here and the adults will say, ‘Wait, can I have my party here?’ and it’s like, of course! This place is not just for kids,” Jill says. Ryan Madson, Jill's co-founder, puts it this way: "We are beginning to see many diverse and niche communities utilize the space, developing a sense of ownership and bringing their own creativity to the mix. We host monthly meet-ups for Spanish-speaking families, yin yoga and improv comedy classes, danzantes Aztecas, coffee and wine salons, raves, climate activist death metal concerts, circus shows and disco brunches."

“THE IDEA FOR SUCH A SPACE ORIGINATED IN 2016, WHEN JILL AND HER CO-FOUNDERS BEGAN TO WONDER WHY BOULDER DIDN’T HAVE ITS OWN HANDS-ON, DISCOVERYBASED CHILDREN’S MUSEUM.”

The idea for such a space originated in 2016, when Jill and her co-founders began to wonder why Boulder didn’t have its own hands-on, discovery-based children’s museum. After touring similar institutions around the country, they knew Boulder’s version would have to be as unique as the city itself.

“We realized Boulder needed something people would want to come back to over and over–something that wouldn’t feel like a one-time destination,” Jill explains. “It needed to provide a sense of community, where you come and feel a sense of ownership. That’s where we got the idea of it being a social club.” As for how it came to be the “junkyard” social club, a quick look around reveals there’s truth to the name. Much of the play structures and decorative fixtures—indoors and out—are in their second act and sourced from literal junkyards by Jill and the founding team. Outside, imaginative creations from one-of-a-kind finds set the tone for creative play. Think: a 16-foot swing set, a vintage bus, dozens of tires, a life-size giraffe by artist Mitch

Hoffman, a vintage model plane and a giant umbrella made of VW Beetle hoods by artist Jackson Ellis. Inside, you’ll find art made from milk jug caps and murals by Drew Button and the late Alicia Cardenas. Soon, the interiors will be lit up by a chandelier made of 2,000 repurposed washers. Even with finishing touches in the works, Junkyard Social Club has already made itself a vital part of the community. Following the Marshall Fire, the club stepped up by offering free access, regardless of day or time, for affected families. If a family needed a place to play or work, Junkyard Social Club was ready. “We said, ‘We’re here, you can come,’” Jill says, proving just what it really means to respect each other.

“WE REALIZED BOULDER NEEDED SOMETHING PEOPLE WOULD WANT TO COME BACK TO OVER AND OVER–SOMETHING THAT WOULDN’T FEEL LIKE A ONE-TIME DESTINATION.”

“I wanted to bring the energy of New York City to Denver.” What do you get when you combine a born and raised New Yorker with a rural Nebraskan? Apparently one of the best restaurateurs in Denver, one who combines those skyscraper-high standards for food and drink with warm hospitality. Or at least that’s the case of Delores Tronco, founder of Denver’s Work & Class, which she sold in 2016, and now the owner of RiNo’s The Greenwich restaurant, whose NYC-born father and Nebraska-born mother influenced everything from her taste in food to the relaxed settings in which she likes to eat. With The Greenwich, Delores has created a destination-worthy restaurant that’s comfortable and accessible enough for the everyday. “I wanted to bring the energy of New York City to Denver,” she says. “In the Village, there are the sort of people who think outside the box, a little counterculture, very accepting. I wanted to create an accepting and unpretentious space that showcases the excellent food and beverage of New York.” The menu, whipped up by executive chef Justin Freeman, who also hails from NYC, definitely fulfills that goal. It’s full of familiar dishes that are still somehow completely new and refreshing. Take the hamachi tartare, one of the best things I’ve eaten in a long time. The fresh yellowtail cubes sit on a spicy, tangy blend of habanero, mango, and lemon curd, and when you crunch up the rice cracker topper, you get an exciting bite rich in both flavor and texture.

I had a similar experience with the pizza. It may sound strange to describe a pizza— one of the most ubiquitous foods we eat— as being special, but that’s exactly what this pizza is. I ordered the meatball pizza expecting, well, a meatball pizza. What I got was an incredibly unique melding of the Mediterranean and Middle East. The 14-inch sourdough pie came topped with lamb meatballs, a harissa-tinged smoky sauce, and a honey labneh drizzle. It was like a play on a gyro in pizza form, and it changed what I thought a pizza could be. It still provided that pizza level of comfort but taken to a totally new place.

The toppings are so creative—next time I’ll be ordering the white pie that comes with a hot sauce for dipping—that you might focus on those instead of the crust, but the crust is pretty special, too. Its sourdough starter comes from San Francisco’s famed Tartine Bakery, and chef Justin has nurtured it from California to NYC to Denver, where he held it between his feet for safe keeping on his drive out here. All the plates at The Greenwich are oversized and designed for sharing, and the entrees, like the pizza, are enough for two. The lemon roasted chicken is an illustration in how good chicken can be— moist, crispy-skinned, and topped with wilted, crispy chard. Sides and salads are large as well, so you may want to come with a group for sharing. What you won’t want to share though, is The Greenwich cheesecake, created by pastry chef Luke Miller. Drizzled with olive oil and sea salt and flambeed in the Basque tradition, it’s rich and dreamy and light. It’s so distracting that I haven’t stopped thinking about it in a week. That’s kind of what The Greenwich is: a restaurant you can’t stop thinking about. What you’ll order next, the unique perfection of the pizza, that cheesecake. For people who like to think about food, it’s a must visit. 3258 Larimer St., Denver; 720.868.5006 TheGreenwichDenver.com

Local Food Writer Allyson Reedy Launches Her Second Book

C HE F ’S SE LE CT ION | FOOD + BE VE RAGE


A frequent writer for The Denver Post, 5280 and Bon Appétit, and our very own copyeditor, Allyson Reedy’s first book titled Breaking the Chain: How I Banned Chain Restaurants from My Diet and Went from Full to Fulfilled (Diversion Books) chronicled her year-long experience as she sought out local alternatives to fast food chains. This month marks the launch of her second book, 50 Things to Bake Before You Die: The World's Best Cakes, Pies, Brownies, Cookies, and More from Your Favorite Bakers, Including Christina Tosi, Joanne Chang, and Dominique Ansel (Ulysses Press). Aside from her writing endeavors, Allyson’s quite an adventurous eater and has been known to partake in food-eating contests around town. But we’re not the only ones she’s wowed. Her ravenous appetite once inspired a waiter to write her a love poem. We took a minute to catch up with her between bites. So you are a food writer and you just finished a cookbook! I’m assuming you’re an avid baker then? I am actually the worst cook! I’ve always enjoyed baking, but it’s not like you’d want me to make your wedding cake or anything. I mainly just like eating obscene amounts of brownies and cheesecake, and when I went looking for a collection of the absolute best dessert recipes, I couldn’t find it. So I had the gumption to start asking all of these amazing chefs and bakers—Christina Tosi, Duff Goldman, Joanne Chang, several talented people in and around Denver—if I could use their best dessert recipes. Somehow they said yes!

What Colorado bakers and chefs contributed recipes to the book? I started with one of my favorite food bloggers, Tieghan Gerard of Half Baked Harvest. She’s incredible, and so is her brown sugar peach cobbler recipe. I also have a classic crème brûlée recipe from chef Jeff Osaka, a blueberry galette from Jennifer Essex of Ruby Jean Patisserie, a blueberry lemon pie from Shauna Lott Harman of The Long I Pie Shop, and chocolate cheesecake mochi muffins from Sam Butarbutar, cofounder of Third Culture Bakery, which recently closed in Aurora.

blueberry galette Jennifer Essex, Owner of Ruby Jean Patisserie in Denver, CO God bless the galette. Less fussy but just as stunning as an intricate pie, the galette is a free-form pastry, which means if it doesn’t turn out the way you intended, you can totally claim artistic license. There’s *almost* no messing it up, which is probably why “galette fails” has only 291,000 Google results while “pie fails” has more than 31 million. (Yes, I looked it up.) Galette: easier than pie. Makes one galette For the crust • 1 7/8 cups all-purpose flour • ½ teaspoon salt • 2/3 cups (1 stick + 3 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cubed and cold • 1/3 cup water, very cold • Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling For the filling • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries • 1/8 cup sugar • Pinch of salt • ½ teaspoon vanilla • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice • 4 tablespoons corn starch 1. For the crust, mix salt and flour. Using a bench cutter or knives, cut in butter into the flour/salt mixture until butter pieces are pea-sized. 2. Mix in water and knead quickly. Add more flour if mixture is too wet, or more water if too dry. Shape into a disk, wrap in plastic, and chill for at least 2 hours. 3. Combine all filling ingredients. Roll your pie dough into a 12-inch round circle. 4. Put the fruit filling in center of dough, leaving a 2-inch rim. Pile fruit high and crimp dough edges. Freeze for 45 minutes. 5. Preheat oven to 375°F. Egg wash the folded sides of the galette and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. 6. Bake for 1 hour (or longer), checking for a brown and crisp crust. Let rest for 30 minutes, then you’re free to serve with vanilla ice cream.

What was the most challenging part about making this book? I was so excited to get and eat these incredible recipes, that I didn’t think the whole book part through. Specifically, that I’d have to bake them in such a way that they look like a real-life professional—which I am not!—made them. That was the most challenging part: baking everything to look cookbook-worthy perfect for photographs. Are there any desserts in here that surprised you? I’ve always maintained that I don’t like fruit with dessert. I’m more Team Chocolate or Team Peanut Butter. But it turns out that I just don’t like bad desserts made with fruit, which so many grocery store pies and tarts are. The lemon layer cake from Charleston’s Sugar Bakeshop is what first turned me, and then other recipes, like Ruby Jean Patisserie’s blueberry galette, made me a full-fledged, card-carrying member of Team Fruit Dessert. What are your top music picks to help get that kitchen vibe flowing? For everything in my life—baking, exercising, screamsinging—I turn to 80s soft rock. There’s nothing like Hall & Oates, Air Supply and Phil Collins to get me going. If you could invite three people to help you devour the desserts, who would they be and why? David Letterman, because he’s long been my celebrity crush; Christina Tosi, so she could bake me more delicious things to eat; and, well, someone who eats fast, because if they can’t eat fast, they’re not going to get anything when eating with me. 50 Things to Bake Before You Die is available wherever books are sold. Allyson will be signing books and serving sweets at Willow and Tulaire in downtown Littleton on April 7 at 6 p.m. and at the Tattered Cover Westminster April 19 at 6 p.m. Follow her on Instagram to learn more @allysoneatsden.

Boulder Designer Edie Ure Proves Nature Is the Ultimate Muse With Her Fresh, Forward-Thinking Fabrics and Wallpapers

I NSP IR E D BY | A RTS + CULTURE


ARTICLE BY KATHERINE OWEN PHOTOGRAPHY BY EDIE URE

For Edie Ure, a Boulder-based designer and natural dyer, her experimentation with natural dyes started not in the foothills of Colorado’s Front Range where she grows and gathers her materials today, but thousands of miles away, as part of her fashion studies at Central Saint Martins in London. “We were all highly experimental,” she recounts. “We buried fabrics in the soil for six months to see how they decomposed and printed iron dust onto fabric so that it would rust. It was there that I first experimented with natural dyes, like painting stains using wine tanin, henna and mud onto a jacket for designer Koji Tatsuno.” After school, Edie went on to work as a textile designer in New York, creating prints for the likes of Calvin Klein and Ulla Johnson, among many others. But an eventual move to Boulder brought her back to nature and all the colors, textures and lessons from it. A class on natural dyes reignited her interest, and she began experimenting once again. “It is a very sensory experience,” she explains. “The process of extracting color from natural dye stuff is much like cooking; sometimes it involves more complex recipes and often boiling or soaking the pigment out of the dye stuff. But unlike food, we are not drawing out flavor but instead color.”

I NSP IR E D BY | ARTS + CULTURE


Edie says dyes can be found in all corners of the natural world: everything from insects to weeds, tree bark to flowers, seeds to fruit and vegetables. With botanical dyes, the color obtained is not only non-toxic but also more vibrant, as evidenced in Edie’s richly hued silk velvet pillows. More recently, she’s expanded into wallpapers with enchanting floral designs made from flowers she finds, grows and arranges into intricate patterns. Her “Wildflower” wallpaper is designed from pressed flowers she collected in the foothills and has a symmetry and form reminiscent of the Art Nouveau era of the Arts and Crafts Movement in Europe. For Edie, her work is “a marriage of two worlds”: textile print design and experimenting with nature. “Everything I design or make has an environmental connection,” Edie says. “If I find a wildflower when I’m hiking, I’ll put it in a book to press it and later use it in a pattern. I collect earth from riverbeds and trails across New Mexico and Colorado to paint with or charcoal from a burn area to draw with. This makes up the whole ecosystem of my work.” In recent years, her practice has grown even deeper roots. At the beginning of 2020, Edie began gardening, growing both her own food and dye plants. In the last two years she has filled her backyard with harvests of Japanese indigo, the leaves of which she then processes into indigo pigment. “Growing a garden for food and dye plants has been a real joy and a good measure of time, witnessing the transformations that seasons bring and working on nature’s schedule,” Edie says. “Digging in the soil, weeding and watering has provided comfort and a good understanding of my place in the world.” When others bring her creations into their homes, it’s a chance to share that comfort and connection. “I want to reconnect people to the natural world through their senses by putting nature in the center,” she says. “Using the natural colors of earth, flowers and indigo in the home, alongside other natural resources like wood, stone, marble and even metals, makes for a happy balance of materials and a calm home.” Find Edie’s pillows on her website, edieure.com, and at Sacred Thistle in Denver and Hygge Life in Eagle-Vail. All wallpapers are available through Denver showroom Walltawk (walltawk.com) or on her website.

B A C K S TA G E PA S S This Year’s Bluebird Music Festival Lineup

So many community members from the greater Boulder area donated to the Future Arts Foundation’s instrument drive for Marshall Fire victims that the nonprofit gave away to donors $40,000 in tickets to Boulder’s Bluebird Music Festival on April 23 and 24 at Macky Auditorium. The Future Arts Foundation, started by Travis Albright seven years ago, supports local communities through art and music and hosts the annual Bluebird Music Festival. Proceeds from the weekend festival go toward instruments and art workshops for Colorado schools. Though the pandemic paused the festival in 2020, the year before and after delivered acts such as City and Colour, Gregory Alan Isakov, Neyla Pekarek of The Lumineers and members of The Head & The Heart.

Travis says Colin Meloy of The Decemberists only plays a solo show every few years, and he’s excited to watch Colin perform different versions of his band’s well-known songs alone, as well as some of his own music. Festival tickets are available for $29, $39 and $49 for afternoon and evening shows. Travis says the afternoon family-friendly Strings and Stories sets are “reminiscent of the VH1 Storytellers music series,” where artists play three or four solo songs intermixed with stories about their lives and songwriting process. The later concert usually includes artists playing a longer setlist with a full band.

The Bluebird Music Festival puts a little variation in the historic Macky Auditorium’s typically CU-related event schedule. Travis appreciates that the theater is authentic to the area, easier to work with than corporate venues and ticketing systems, and sets this gathering apart from the huge, crowded ones that people typically think of when they hear the word “festival.” Travis says, “We like the sit-down theater aspect of the festival,” sharing music in an intimate space to highlight Bluebird’s grounded roots in Boulder.

Introducing McCoy Park By Skiers, For Skiers—McCoy Park’s Family-Friendly Terrain Is A Dream Come True For All Levels

In July 2021, Beaver ​​ Creek Ski Resort debuted their newest family-friendly park, McCoy Park. McCoy Park came just in time for the 2021-2022 ski and snowboard season, and it's the first expansion for the resort in fourteen years. The new ski terrain invites beginner and intermediate skiers to connect through this new season and enables them to elevate their experience on the third installment to Beaver Creek’s collection of learning terrain. The learning-focused environment that McCoy Park creates is a solution to a problem found in many mountain areas and, debatably, in the ski industry as a whole: the lack of welcoming and safe atmospheres for people wanting to try the sport. McCoy Park was created with beginners in mind, but it's proved to be enjoyable for all levels. CONTINUED >

The park adds 250 acres of welcoming beginner and intermediate terrain to Beaver Creek Resort, located at the top of Strawberry Park Express and Upper Beaver Creek Mountain Express, Beaver Creek communications manager Rachel Levitsky tells us. She describes the park's amazing natural feel, with signature groomed, gladed trails that allow skiers and snowboarders to choose their own adventure. “Not to mention the views from this new bowl setting are absolutely incredible, showcasing the Gore and Sawatch Ranges,” she says. Highlighted by Mount Thomas and Middle Mountain, you cannot get that view anywhere else. This new terrain offers an extremely unique experience to novice skiers that not many other mountains do, as it provides a Back-Bowl feel specifically tailored to beginners. This expansion will also reduce trail densities throughout the entire mountain, with the added benefit of spreading people out. “It’s the third installment of our Signature Parks Collection, which is a compilation of learning terrain, and it particularly plays into our ski school. But while it is geared toward beginners and early intermediates, every guest experience that we’ve gotten back is that it's so fun no matter what your level,” Rachel says. “It’s really wide open back there—there are little powder stashes in between and little tree runs that later intermediates or advanced skiers are having a great time with.” The buildout process of the park took incredible planning coordination from many departments across Beaver Creek and Vail Resorts. The planning process itself took years, and was a developmental goal for decades. “We were lucky to have experienced leaders and members of the team, from planning to mountain operations to installation of our two new lifts,” Rachel explains. “This project had a particularly compressed timeline, given the wildlife closure this area sees until mid-summer.” The teams worked with input from skiers of all levels, all with one goal in mind: to deliver the guests a unique and pleasurable venture.

The McCoy Park investment is a commitment to the guest experience.

McCoy Park continues to welcome and inspire guests and positions Beaver Creek as the destination for families seeking mountain excursions. “It exceeded a lot of people’s expectations,” Rachel says, speaking to the level of inclusivity the park reached. “Everyone can find their own adventure back there. It almost feels like a backcountry experience. It’s tucked away and has expansive panoramic mountain views. It feels like nothing else on Beaver Creek mountain.” BeaverCreek.com

From the Beach to Colorado LOW-SPEED ELECTRIC MOKES COME TO BOULDER AND BEYOND

Whether you’re driving the stylish Moke to trailheads, date night or just around your neighborhood, enjoying its smooth, silent ride in the open air, the Moke looks like a good time cruising down the street and just as fun while it’s parked out front. Originally designed for the British military as a lightweight utility vehicle, the Moke was marketed to the public starting in the 1960s and became popular in the following decades after icons like Brigitte Bardot and James Bond in Live and Let Die adopted the airy cruisers. Fast forward to 2017, when CEO of Moke America Todd Rome brought the vehicles from across the pond and made them all electric, street legal and manufactured in the United States. They come in 12 colors, plus camo, and are fully customizable with tailored body, bumper, grill, rollbar, rim, steering wheel and seat options. Though Mokes are often associated with celebrity culture (the Kardashians just bought several for Christmas) and American

warm-weather beach towns, marinas and golf courses, Colorado boasts over 300 days of sunshine per year and is a perfect match for the fashionable electric car. In 2020, John Duke and Mary Ladd acquired the rights to launch Colorado Moke dealerships and opened their first in Boulder the following year. Now they are selling Mokes in Front Range communities like Boulder, Berthoud and Denver, as well as in charming ski and resort towns like Aspen, Vail and Telluride. “Colorado has a great climate with lots of sunshine,” Mary says, “and Mokes can really take advantage of that across all the seasons here.” Mary first came across the Moke brand in Saint-Tropez, France. Years later in 2017, while on holiday in Newport Beach, California, she saw the street-legal electric Moke that had recently made its debut in the States. Immediately, Mary got on the phone to purchase a Moke for her Boulder home.


Mary took her entrepreneurial background and joined forces with John, who previously worked in investment banking and with startups, and they started marketing Mokes to Coloradoans. As Colorado residents look forward to warm spring and summer weather, the Boulder Moke dealership is getting more calls from locals wanting to order the cool-looking, eco-friendly car to elevate the sense of open-air leisure so familiar to the Front Range and the rest of the state. While expanding in the consumer market, John and Mary also want to sell into hotels and other enterprise businesses that need local transportation solutions or rent Mokes out for weddings and promotional events. “Whatever Coloradans do on the weekend is the Moke,” Mary says. “It offers such a unique way to enjoy your community.” Instagram @MokeAmericaBoulder AP R I L 2 0 2 2 | C I TYL I FE STYL E .

From January 2011 to January 2012, Boulder artist Darcie Shively tried 52 new things. She chronicled them in her blog, 52 to Do, in attempt to figure out what she really, actually liked doing. “I started with some things I knew I liked and let it evolve from there,” she says. She had just moved to Boulder from Los Angeles and was attempting to unravel the effects of a high-intensity “workaholic” career in advertising. “It was the beginning of me saying, ‘What do I really like to do?’ It’s interesting when you let yourself follow where things are going to see where you might end up, and how much happier you can feel as a result,” she explains. So she tried making chocolate. Ice fishing. Reading philosophy. Playing chess. Surfing. Simply doing nothing. Several textile crafts made the list, but weaving didn’t make the final, 52-week cut.

When her year of experimentation ended, she signed up for an eight-week weaving class to make a few scarves, which turned into making a few tapestries to “have around the house.” Ten years and seven looms later, Darcie now makes large weavings at her home in Boulder, exploring big-picture concepts like acceptance, chance, memory and the beauty of imperfection. Her tapestries are in hot demand, with a sometimes months-long waitlist. Many individuals commission Darcie for one of her “Chance” weavings, which use tarot, astrology and even Magic 8 Ball readings to unpack big life questions and chronicle periods of transition. She uses hand-dyed churro wool from New Mexico and selects colors at random to create vibrant tapestries with a life of their own. To Darcie, it’s about letting go of control and perfection and accepting things for what they are. “I didn’t know at the time why I was drawn to using chance objects to generate random pattern. Now I see clearly I was rebelling against the grind of work and the role of technology in automating our lives,” she says. “I wanted more serendipity and less ‘what’s trending.’ It helped me pull back from perfection and to learn to live with not having to know everything or control everything all the time.” For many customers, these commissions mark a major milestone in their lives. “It's a good reminder that everyone is going through something. Everyone is in a state of transition, trying to figure something out for themselves,” she says. “And in the case of the past two years, just trying to make sense of what’s going on around them. It feels good to be able to do something for them that helps in that regard.” As of late, nature has taken a larger role in her work, influencing her “Color Memory” weavings in which she distills memory and place into the simple beauty of colors. “I started doing Color Memories because I fell in love with living in Boulder and beyond and wanted to document it for myself. It has led to me being very observant of color around me in the landscape in a very meditative way,” Darcie says. “My color memory weavings are about looking at things as they are, and really getting in and seeing them as they are. That’s when you can really see beauty in things.”

Up next: inspired by artist Agnes Martin’s chapel-like space in Taos’s Harwood Museum, she is dreaming up how a similar venue for art-minded meditation could look here in Boulder. She envisions a space where people could contemplate some of the very same big ideas she explores in her tapestries– things like life, love and God. As she puts it: “The things that people have tried to figure out across centuries and across cultures that we just don’t necessarily have answers for.” Until then, she’s following where the threads lead her.
