Susie Biehl, Emmanuel Auzias, Jude Barton, Susan Hazaleus, Jen Herling, Austin Howlett & Jim Riggins November 16 - December 3rd

Opening reception is Friday, November 17th from 6-8 PM. 

Susie Biehl’s “Discards: Man and Nature” is an exploration of the accumulation and remains of man-made objects and plant based discards. Her fascination with the footprint of both man and nature provides the inspiration for this eclectic collection of rejected material which are then artfully and sometimes whimsically displayed in collage and assemblage

Emmanuel Auzias “Abstract Postcards from the Seashore” are images inspired by the seashore of the South of France. Her paintings invite the viewer to share a place and a moment in time from her life and her memory with the desire to evoke a response and summon the viewer to engage in a conversation with her art and with herself as the sender.

Jude Barton’s “Chasing Kandinsky” series draws on the principle of color and form as an outward expression of an inner content. In her exploration of non-objective forms she uses a spiritual vocabulary of which Kandinsky speaks in his treatise “Concerning the Spiritual in Art”.

Susan Hazaleus creates work that is ephemeral, unexpected and particularly interactive. Her work employs a variety of media including traditional materials along with more contemporary objects processes and materials such as electronic, microcontrollers, video, light, sound and kinetic components with light and movement.

Jen Herling’s mythopoetic dreamscapes express universal themes of isolation, loss and grief balanced with innocence, hope and strength. With a flair for innocence juxtaposed with a dark twist, her decidedly feminine figures are enigmatic and emotionally provocative.

Austin Howlett’s work is driven by a desire to invite the viewer into an emotional connection of vulnerability. His figurative images illustrate a connection and unity with the world through emotion and the comfort of the nature which surrounds them.  He challenges the viewer to participate in an empathetic attitude with their own vulnerability.

Jim Riggin’s ink work stems from a loose stream of consciousness that is driven by the process itself. The result of fine detail and intricate patterns evoke an alternate time and place. A closer look at the patterns and images within images delights the viewer with surprises and discovery.

Tracey Russell & Suzanne Kramer: October 5 - 22, 2017

Tracey Russell explores the honesty, beauty and complexity of expressive, deliberate, and subconscious mark making in her show entitled, Modifiable Mark. Using wood panels, graphite and oil paint, and by spontaneously following suggestions of line, texture, and pattern, a hint or implication of a thought or experience is created.

Suzanne Kramer’s “Untamed” was inspired by a recent trip to Africa that was so transformative, she was compelled to explore the visual and emotional aspects of the experience on canvas.

Opening Reception: Friday, October 13, 6-9 PM

Dog & Pony Show: Sept 14 - October 1, 2017

The definition of a Dog & Pony show is that it is “often over-staged performance, presentation, or event designed to sway or convince public opinion for political, (or less often) commercial ends." This national open entry show proves to be all that and more. From hundreds of entries from all over the country, juror Doug Kacena has selected pieces ranging from over the top political to circus-y fun, welcome to the “Greatest Show …. in Denver”.

Opening Reception: Friday, September 15, 6-9 PM

Gallery Hours: 
Thursday & Saturday 12-6 pm
Fridays 12-9 pm
Sundays 1-4 pm

Artist Reception:  Friday, July 14. 6-9 pm

Abstract art uses a visual language of shape, form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Western art had been, from the Renaissance up to the middle of the 19th century, underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality. The arts of cultures other than the European had become accessible and showed alternative ways of describing visual experience to the artist. By the end of the 19th century many artists felt a need to create a new kind of art which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. The sources from which individual artists drew their theoretical arguments were diverse, and reflected the social and intellectual preoccupations in all areas of Western culture at that time.

Please attend the reception for the artists and enjoy viewing the latest trends in abstract art from artists working in a variety of media.

Juror – Karen Roehl

Originally from Montreal, Canada, Karen Roehl began her art career in Denver as a graphic artist. After twenty successful years an independent designer, she decided to fulfill her ultimate goal to become a fine artist. Fully committing to her ambition, she re-entered university to study painting at CU Denver, graduating with a BFA and top honors in 2007.
