Harleen Alexander: A Memorial Exhibition
November 6 – March 28, 2021
This exhibition pays tribute to the creative spirit and passion of Harleen Alexander, who passed away on July 9, 2020. She was a hugely respected part of the Fort Collins community and impacted the life of everyone she met with her positive attitude. She was a dynamic realtor, an artist to the end of her life, a gardener, and a philanthropist. The arts sustained her and she saw deep beauty in everyday life. Harleen fell off a ladder while painting the exterior of her home on Club View Terrace in Fort Collins on August 15, 2005. Over the following 15 years, Harleen was forced to give up little pieces of her life as her physical condition worsened. Her love and passion for art helped her to withstand this truly horrible experience by giving her something to work on, something to focus her attention on other than her deteriorating circumstances. Art kept her connected to something she loved and to the world at large.
