Incite/Insight, a national juried show on exhibit at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins, Colorado is on display from November 21, 2014 to January 3, 2015. The exhibit called for artists working in all media to provoke/inspire/arouse a deeper understanding/vision/wisdom of the world around us.

From 36 participating artists, guest Juror Ivar Zeile, owner and director of the award-winning Plus Gallery selected Aric Verrastro from Indiana University as the Grand Prize Winner, for excellence in artistic expression.

Ivar Zeile has served as a member of the Denver Mayor’s Commission for Cultural Affairs from 2006 though 2011, a board member for a variety of art-related groups including PlatteForum, the Denver Art Museum’s DAM Contemporaries, RedLine, and the Invisible Museum.

My goal since becoming involved in the art industry has been to support forward thinking artists through honest, meaningful associations that attempt to push past the normal traditions that have formulated over time within the broader art environment. I also seek to improve the public’s understanding of the system and basis for that support, maintaining integrity at all levels.

Verrastro will also participate in Talente 2015, one of Europe’s most prestigious showcases for emerging talent in design, technology and craft/object art. Now in its 34th year, the international competition is a platform for young craft artists and designers to launch their careers to the wider European market. This year, three Americans have been invited to present their work.

Organized by the Munich and Upper Bavarian Chamber of Skilled Trades and jointly sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Labor and the Bavarian State Ministry for Economics, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology. Talente takes place every year as a special exhibition during the Munich International Skilled Trades Fair in early March.
