From Chronicle A&E editor Elliott Johnston:
Since 2003, there has been nary a more artist-friendly nook in Fort Collins than the Colorado Coalition of Artists, an artist-managed, volunteer-run, nonprofit community space. It’s fitting, then, that CoCOA is celebrating its relocation with an open invitation to local visual artists. To mark their move from their previous digs on Mason Street to the year-old Poudre River Arts Center at 402 N. College Ave., CoCOA is holding a “spontaneous art happening,” dubbed Hook, Hammer and Hang, where anyone with a piece of work to share is welcome to exhibit on a first-come, first-served basis.
The new CoCOA gallery doors open at 5 p.m. for artists to hang works; the opening reception — displaying the works and featuring music and refreshments — lasts from 6 to 9 p.m. The event is free.
