The Birds and The Bees, by Paul Flippen, was inspired by the birth of the artist’s son and explores the complications of love, pleasure, and the act of creation – literal and metaphorical, biological and artistic. The exhibit opened on January 2nd at the Branigan Cultural Center and will be on display until the end of the month. Flippen has been painting for over two decades and has had his work shown in galleries and museums around the country, including solo exhibitions in New York, Texas, the Mid-West, and the Washington D.C. metro area. He currently teaches Foundations Painting at Colorado State University in Fort Collins.
