Drawing isn’t necessarily the flashiest of the visual arts, but a new show at The Art Base in Basalt is looking to change the opinions of people who see it.

Richard Carter, James Surls, Chris Hassig and Jody Guralnick are part of the show simply  called, Drawings.

It’s a show that takes the four artists out of their regular media. None of them are drawers by trade.

The twenty foot tall piece is planted in the middle of Carbondale’s new roundabout on Highway 133. Created by artist James Surls, it shows needles, a tree, and other elements arranged in a vase.

Artist James Surls’ sculpture “Sewing the Future” was installed in Carbondale Thursday. It took more than a hour to truck in different parts of the sculpture, stand them up and bolt them down in the middle of the Highway 133 roundabout. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen has more.

People began gathering around the roundabout early in the morning, when it was still chilly. Carbondale resident Noah Davis was bundled up and handing out doughnuts. He says he’s excited to see the sculpture go up.
