Bodies of Work
Ted Tahquechi and Sophie Klafter 

February 17- March 17, 2017
Third Friday Reception, February 17, 5-8 pm
First Friday Art Walk Reception on March 3, 5-9 pm

Access Gallery will feature two artists who have a very different approach to photographing the human body, Ted Tahquechi and Sophie Klafter, in an exhibit entitled “Bodies of Work”. Ted’s photos are almost sensual in nature and speak to the fluidity and softness of the human form. Klafter’s photographs explore her personal anxieties around disability, femininity, and body image. 
 
Ted Tahquechi is a photographer who is legally blind. His collection of black and white photography showcases the form, curve, and texture of the human body in the Bodyscape style of portraiture. Typically faceless, a Bodyscape is a style of artistic close-up photography where images of the human form convey the impression of landscapes. Work in this style can range from abstract images, to flowing and sensual. While the imagery is of the nude form, it is not explicit, making this collection suitable for all viewers.

Sophie Klafter is an award-winning photographer from New York who lives with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a rare neuromuscular disorder that affects motor and sensory nerves throughout the body, especially in the feet and lower legs. The images in this show have never been shown in a gallery setting. They are a powerful and brave representation of her very personal challenges. Sophie has worked with Access Gallery on a variety of projects, most recently the “25 Stories, 25 Years” project in Boulder. In April 2015, her series of portraits of people coping with physical challenges was featured in American Photo Magazine.

Access Gallery is an inclusive nonprofit organization that engages the community by opening doors to creative and educational opportunities for people with disabilities to access and experience the arts. 

Hours: Tuesday, 10am-2pm, Wednesday & Thursday, 10am–4:00pm, First Friday, 3-9pm, Third Friday, 3-8pm, Second Saturday, 10am -2pm, and by appointment.

Alto Gallery opened i February 2016 in the Berkley neighborhood of Denver,CO. "Alto" means "high" in Spanish, and it's a reference not only to our "Mile High" locale, but to the heights for which we strive. While considering a long list of names, Alto was undergoing extensive remodeling that exposed our beautiful, high barreled wood ceiling . Altogether, the name fit.

Critical Mass Top 50 Show: Markers of Time
Curated by David Rosenberg

On View April 7th, - May 1st, 2017
Opens April 7th 6-9 pm

From Photolucida in Portland Oregon, 200 photographer finalists work was viewed and voted on by over 200 esteemed international photography professionals. From the finalist group, the Top 50 are named and awarded. This group is being presented during the Month of Photography.  
www.photolucida.org/critical-mass/top-50

Critical Mass is an annual online program that makes connections within the photography community. Photographers at any level, from anywhere in the world, submit a portfolio of 10 images.

Although there are seemingly infinite ways of making photographs - and as many opinions about their value - one of photography’s universal tools is its ability to become a tangible record of time. Whether that is achieved through the capture of a specific moment, or if a series of images present a visual journal of a photographer’s personal journey, these moments lend themselves to clichés that speak of time. The passing of time, time is of the essence, the work is “big time” or it might be ahead of its time.

When exploring the fantastic photographs created by the Critical Mass finalists, it may, at first, seem tricky to find a thematic thread that weaves its way throughout the work. After all, the photographers presented their work without parameters that locked them into to a specific theme. And yet, time after time, when looking at the photographs selected from this collection of 50 finalists, you can’t help but see time staring back at you. Some of the images are lost in time, some seem to have been created in a time warp, others feel timely, some suspend time and a few make you exclaim: “It’s about time!”

Each of these 50 images are part of a separate story. How you decide to see them, either through a narrative presented by the photographer, or via your own imagination, is up to you. Take your time. You might find that in each case they do more than suspend time; they become timeless.

The group officially had over 100 members,  and although not all posted every day, many of us did. The project was so popular that we decided to organize a traveling show to share our work with others. The show at NEXT Gallery in January, 2016, was the first exhibit  in this traveling project,  showing the work of 17 photographers  from the original group, and poems from a member who wrote one a day for a selection of the 100 photographs.The participants   live in Finland Denmark, and all over the United States, with 6 living in the Denver area.  Now this show will be at Art Galleryat  DPAC from March through May, 2017.  This will be a cash and carry opportunity, so come pick out the ones you want. After May, the show is available to travel  to other locations around the world to be enjoyed by an international audience.

March 3rd - March 31st, 2017
Opening First Friday March 3rd 6-10pm

Aquatique is the collaborative endeavor between photographer and mixed media artist Gina Burg and illustrator and painter Elle Powell. Their individual works in Aquatique are their love letters to the many stunning aquatic ecosystems around the world.

Gina's work highlights the movement and light within landscapes and the beauty of the human form. By blending the mediums of film, graphic art and painting, she merges the real and the surreal to illustrate the moods of nature. Through her passion for composition, Gina's creative intention is to capture the feeling of motion through a dream-like quality of light. She aims to inspire the viewer to feel her passion for the elemental beauty of water. Gina's art has been showcased in several galleries thorughout Denver. Over the years, she has worked with many other artists, musicians and photographers from every facet of the creative community. In her dayjob, she was a featured photographer in 5280 Magazine, as well as within TheKnot.com and WeddingWire.com and was proud to be featured as a Wedding.com Best of Photographer.

Elle Powell is a world traveling Denver native who has been drawing and painting for the past fifteen years. She studied philosophy and fine art at Occidental College in Los Angeles and is currently an MFA candidate at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She believes in spreading joy and beauty through her artwork, and contributes a percentage of her profits to charity.

Black Book Gallery
 
Jon Furlong

Saturday, March 11th - 7-9p
March 11 - March 31, 2017

Black Book Gallery will feature Jon Furlong who is Shepard Fairey's photographer - exhibit will feature pictures of Shepard and his indoor/outdoor work.

Jonathan Furlong (b.1981) is a Southern California native, best classified as a self-taught lifestyle and street photographer.  Most notably, Furlong has been a main component of documenting Shepard Fairey’s work and notorious installs behind the lens.  In Furlong’s hyper-critical, high-anxiety mind, he finds ways to capture an essence of beauty and chaos in an authentic form. Similar to the environment of his immediate involvement with Shepard’s projects, his style can best be described as unpredictable, surreptitious, and pragmatic.  While others attempt to recreate a meaning with a photo, Jon embraces what people may try and manipulate— the abominable truth, in his work. To him, the art of photography is preserving moments for eternity, so those who come across his work can see the past that set the future.

Located in Denver, Colorado, Black Book Gallery is one of the area’s most active and varied contemporary art hubs. Co-founders Tom Horne and Will Suitts founded Black Book Gallery in 2010. Black Book Gallery firmly believes that the artist is just as import as the work, demonstrating a clear respect and commitment to the creative process. This belief allows the artist to have complete creative freedom from show inception to installation and beyond.
In addition to cultivating strong relationships with artists, Black Book Gallery is passionate about helping individuals and institutions who are interested in expanding their collections. Please inquire about licensing, installations and commissions from featured artists.

Juror: Enrique Parrilla

Boxcar Gallery is pleased to announce our return after a two year hiatus. To celebrate in conjunction with MoP we present Oil & Dirt, a photography exhibition featuring the current work of former member Enrique Parrilla and guest artists Matthew Jones, Sasha Juliard, Travis Heacock and Jun Song. The Grand Gallery Re-Opening will be Saturday, Feb, 25 from 5:30 – 8:30pm.

Enrique Parrilla has spent his career working in commercial photography projects but his latest solo work is a detour into our individual connectedness. His photos focus on the freedom one feels when they ride a motorcycle, the sounds, the seamless and the wind in your face.

Denver photographer, Travis Heacock has a unique perspective on life. His camera has intimately connected him with the Earth and those whom inhabit it. His passion is collaborating with local creative communities to enrich not only his lives but the lives of those around him through his work.

For Salt Lake City photographer Jun Song, the motorcycle is not just a machine that takes us from place to place, but an all-encompassing experience that allows us to appreciate the beauty that we may miss in our daily lives. Song’s work enables us to immortalize experiences by capturing moments of passion into memorable images. As a result the work is an open journal for people to see and feel what he has and to evoke the relatable and the unfamiliar passion in someone else.

Matthew Jones is influenced by the cinematic world; he finds beauty in light, landscape and the natural special effects that are produced between man and machine.

Center for Visual Arts  (CVA)

Presence: Reflections on the Middle East features 12 artists living in the U.S. and abroad.
February 3 – April 8, 2017
Opening reception February 3, 2017, 6-8pm During Art District on Santa Fe’s First Friday Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) Center for Visual Art (CVA) announces an exhibition of more than 60 photo-based works that reflect the tension inherent in the presence, or absence, of people in a place, whether in their native land or abroad.
The artists, all who are affected by the Middle East diaspora of the past 20 years, explore what it means to leave something, and in some cases, someone, behind, whether by choice or by force, and how cultural heritage and the past are interwoven with the present. Through controlling placement and context of the figure, along with the subtleties of obscurity, these artists preserve identity, relationship and agency. “What makes Presence really interesting is that it offers a glimpse into the artists’ creative thinking and practice informed by cultural heritage more so than geography or age,” said Cecily Cullen, CVA Managing Director / Curator. “Each artist can share a story about how geopolitical issues have affected their families and customs, and ultimately informed their artistic work.” Photography has been theorized and argued many different ways, but there is usually no disagreement about its power in relationship to memories and the past. Since its invention, photography has been tied to the notion of the trace. Often, a presence is felt most acutely through its absence. Photographs, either directly or indirectly, contain the trace of what came before.
Artists Arwa Abouon Born in Tripoli, Libya, Abouon is a photographer and video artist based in Montreal, Canada. Through her playful photographs and graphic interventions, she questions her own place within a so-called Western culture on the one hand and her upbringing in a Muslim household on the other.
Golnar Adili Based in Brooklyn and inspired by the displacement she felt while growing up in Tehran, Adili constructs photographs, collages, and assemblages that explore the longing she felt growing up between Iran and the US, always missing a place or a person.
Tarek Al-Ghoussein Al-Goussein was born in Kuwait of Palestinian origin, and much of his work deals with how his identity is shaped in a context of inaccessibility and loss. His work explores the boundaries between landscape photography, self- portraiture and performance art.
Samira Alikhanzadeh Born in 1967 in Tehran, Iran, Alikhanzadeh is fascinated with the issues of identity and reality in relation to past and present, and finding inspiration in the melancholic and humoristic quality of old images, she uses old found photographs, mainly family photos of the 1940s and 50s to create her artworks. Sami Al Karim, an Iraqi artist born in 1966 in Lebanon, currently lives and works in Colorado. In 1974, Al Karim’s family moved to Baghdad, Iraq, and he attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Baghdad in 1985. He has been influenced by Sumerian and Babylonian civilizations, which clearly define his earlier works.
Tulu Bayar Turkish born, American artist Bayar works with an eclectic range of media including photography, video, sound, sculpture, performance, mixed-media and installation. Her work creates a dialog between traditional and experimental forms by combining elements of the past with a contemporary examination.
Shadi Ghadirian As a modern Muslim woman living in Iran, Ghadirian takes photographs that exaggerate the customs of her Iranian culture and the archaic stereotypes it places upon contemporary women. With humor and irony, Ghadirian depicts women reduced to their typecasts, typically housewives draped in veils and with their faces replaced by household items—pots, pans, brooms, and meat cleavers.
Rula Halawani As a native of occupied East Jerusalem, Halawani began her artistic career by registering the difficulties of living under a protracted political conflict. Recently, she has turned her lens toward the traces of lives and history that can still be found in often overlooked details, whether in the material culture of Palestinian society or the transformed landscapes of her childhood.
Laleh Mehran Mehran moved to the U.S. from Iran when she was a child in the 1970s; she now lives in Denver. The daughter of Iranian scientists, her relationship to this subject is necessarily complex, and is even more so now given a political climate in which certain views are increasingly suspect. As part of her work, she delves into themes such as dissent and exile – even her own complicated relationship with politics, theology and science.
Javid Tafazoli Born in 1982 in Bojnourd, Iran, Tafazoli graduated in photography from the University of Applied Science and Technology in Ahwaz, Iran. He is currently works with news agencies and press as a freelance photojournalist. His photography interests include social documentary and photojournalism. Samira Yamin
Yamin was born in Evanston, Illinois and lives in Los Angeles. Her work almost exclusively begins with appropriated sources – war photography, TIME magazines, negatives that once belonged to her grandfather – that are then dissected, reorganized, and often obliterated according to disparate systems of sacred geometry, neurological visual distortions, and modernist experiments in geometric abstraction.is a contemporary artist best known for his strategically blurred and altered photographs. Born in 1963 in Najaf, Iraq, his works merge stills from films, artifacts, photos, and paintings to present topics of past trauma, reality, and dreams.
All events are free and open to the public. Special Events :
• Young Artist Studio: Manipulated Photography
Tuesdays and Wednesday, February 7 – March 22, 2017, 3:30-5:30 Open studio and workshops for ages 11-21

Visions of the American West:
Photographs by Chuck Forsman and William Sutton

March 2017 – June 2017

This exhibition at the Colorado State Capitol Complex includes photographs taken in public lands throughout Colorado and  throughout the greater Western landscape by William Sutton and Chuck Forsman. Both Sutton and Forsman convey the beauty of the wilderness and capture scenes unique to the western United States.  The photographs highlight not only the beauty but the importance of these landscapes.  Selected works will be on display at the Colorado State Capitol complex, including the Lieutenant Governor's Office, basement rotunda, Legislative Council staff offices, and the Joint Budget Committee room and hearing rooms in the Legislative Services building across from the Capitol.

William Sutton has lived in the American West for many years, and continues to reside west of Boulder, Colorado. Sutton received his BFA and MFA from the University of Colorado in Boulder. He is a professor at Regis College in Denver and has taken photographs of the landscape of the area for over three decades. In his work, Sutton hopes to capture the need for preservation of public lands, as well as understanding the limits we place on these sites as we enter them and use their resources. 

As a prominent landscape photographer, Chuck Forsman has connected his art with his growing environmental and land-use concerns. Forsman graduated from the University of California at Davis with a BA and MFA. Until 2008 he taught Painting at the University of Colorado in Boulder and still lives in Colorado today. His photography showcases the ordinary or everyday places in the American West rather than recognizable attractions. “ I have worked at not looking for anything in particular in hopes of spotting more.  I enter the out-of -doors to engage rather than escape.” Chuck Forsman

UNDERCURRENTS
Susan Goldstein

February 2017 – May 2017

The photographs displayed in the lobby of the Office of Economic Development were taken by Colorado-based photographer Susan Goldstein.  These images are part of a larger collection of Goldstein’s work, titled, UNDERCURRENTS.  Her photography features images iconic to the American West.  Goldstein’s images are lonely, but not void of human evidence. Instead, they give us insight of a place, and a deeper understanding of the communities she passes through.  Goldstein highlights meaning in unlikely, seemingly overlooked communities.  Susan Goldstein attended the Woodland School of Photography and the University of Colorado, Boulder, where she earned her BA. She has been a freelance visual artist as well as photographer for Westword newspaper and various books. Her work has been included in several publications. Goldstein’s work has appeared in a number of institutions, including the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe, the Colorado Photographic Arts Center in Denver, the Colorado State Capitol, and the EDGE Gallery in Denver numerous times. www.susangoldsteinstudio.com

RedLine with Colorado Photographic Arts Center
Jess T. Dugan

Every Breath We Drew

March 10 - April 9, 2017
Opening at RedLine March 11, 2017 , 6 - 9 pm

Every breath we drew explores the power of identity, desire, and connection through portraits of myself and others.  Working within the framework of queer experience and from my actively constructed sense of masculinity, my portraits examine the intersection between private, individual identity and the search for intimate connection with others.  I photograph people in their homes, often in their bedrooms, using medium and large format cameras to create a deep, sustained engagement, resulting in an intimate and detailed portrait.

I combine formal portraits, images of couples, self-portraits, and photographs of my own romantic relationship to investigate broader themes of identity and connection while also speaking to my private, individual experience.  The photographs of men and masculine individuals act as a kind of mirror; they depict the type of gentle masculinity I am attracted to, yet also the kind I want to embody.  Similarly, the photographs of relationships speak to a drive to be seen, understood, and desired through the eyes of a another person; a reflection of the self as the ultimate intimate connection.

By asking others to be vulnerable with me through the act of being photographed, I am laying claim to what I find beautiful and powerful while asking larger questions about how identity is formed, desire is expressed, and intimate connection is sought.

About Jess T. Dugan:
Jess T. Dugan is an artist whose work explores issues of gender, sexuality, identity, and community. Dugan holds an MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago, a Master of Liberal Arts in Museum Studies from Harvard University, and a BFA in Photography from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Dugan’s photographs have been featured in the New York Times, CNN, The Advocate, Slate, The Huffington Post, and the Boston Globe.

Her photographs are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Harvard Art Museums, the Birmingham Museum of Art, the Grand Rapids Art Museum, the Cornell Fine Arts Museum and the Alfond Collection at Rollins College, the DePaul Art Museum, Fidelity Investments, JP Morgan Chase, and the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.  Her work is also included in the Midwest Photographer’s Project at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, IL.

Dugan’s first monograph Every breath we drew was published in 2015 by Daylight Books and coincided with a solo exhibition at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum. Dugan is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, an Artist Fellowship from the Regional Arts Commission in St. Louis, and was selected by the White House as a 2015 Champion of Change.  In 2016, Dugan was honored as a Commended Artist by the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. for her photograph Self-Portrait (Muscle Shirt), exhibited in The Outwin 2016: American Portraiture Today. 

In 2015, Dugan founded the Strange Fire Artist Collective to highlight work made by women, people of color, and LGBTQ artists.  She is represented by the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago, IL.

Ocean Legacy: 
Inspiring Marine Conservation in the Ross Sea, Antarctica and Beyond
John Weller, Safina Center Fellow

Lecture Wednesday, March 08, 2017 7-9pm
Green Center Petroleum Hall


Join us for a journey above and below the ice as internationally acclaimed photographer, filmmaker, and author John Weller tells the inspiring story of the Ross Sea. Working out of his garage in Boulder, Weller started what would become a global coalition of organizations, scientists, diplomats and more than a million people, and eventually entrained the attention of world leaders from the White House to the Kremlin.

Weller will share his world-renowned images from 4 trips to the Ross Sea, including 3 months diving under the ice with the National Science Foundation. And most importantly, John will share how it was at the end – inside the international meeting in a stone fortress in the center of Hobart, Tasmania, when all these countries reached agreement in one of the most profound international collaborations of our times.

John Weller was named a SeaWeb Fellow in 2005, a Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation in 2009, and has served as a Safina Center Fellow since 2014. In addition to his foundational work in the Ross Sea, Weller has collaborated with Emmy Award-winning cinematographer Shawn Heinrichs and an array of environmental organizations to conceive, create and deliver national-level media campaigns in support of marine conservation initiatives in many other crucially important regions of the world’s ocean. These campaigns have resulted in new shark and manta ray sanctuaries in the Bahamas and Micronesia, new marine protected areas in Indonesia, and new international law protecting manta rays. He continues to work in defense of the ocean alongside a team of close collaborators and his wife Cassandra Brooks.

Critical Mass Top 50 Show: Markers of Time

Curated by David Rosenberg
Held at Artwork Network

On View April 7th, - May 1st, 2017
Opens April 7th 6-9 pm

From Photolucida in Portland Oregon, 200 photographer finalists work was viewed and voted on by over 200 esteemed international photography professionals. From the finalist group, the Top 50 are named and awarded. This group is being presented during the Month of Photography.  
www.photolucida.org/critical-mass/top-50

Critical Mass is an annual online program that makes connections within the photography community. Photographers at any level, from anywhere in the world, submit a portfolio of 10 images.

Although there are seemingly infinite ways of making photographs - and as many opinions about their value - one of photography’s universal tools is its ability to become a tangible record of time. Whether that is achieved through the capture of a specific moment, or if a series of images present a visual journal of a photographer’s personal journey, these moments lend themselves to clichés that speak of time. The passing of time, time is of the essence, the work is “big time” or it might be ahead of its time.

When exploring the fantastic photographs created by the Critical Mass finalists, it may, at first, seem tricky to find a thematic thread that weaves its way throughout the work. After all, the photographers presented their work without parameters that locked them into to a specific theme. And yet, time after time, when looking at the photographs selected from this collection of 50 finalists, you can’t help but see time staring back at you. Some of the images are lost in time, some seem to have been created in a time warp, others feel timely, some suspend time and a few make you exclaim: “It’s about time!”

Each of these 50 images are part of a separate story. How you decide to see them, either through a narrative presented by the photographer, or via your own imagination, is up to you. Take your time. You might find that in each case they do more than suspend time; they become timeless.

Patricia Barry Levy
On View April 7 – May 28
Opens First Friday April 7 w/ addtl. May 5 First Friday
Deco Lounge

Patricia Barry Levy’s work is inspired by beauty, mystery, whimsy and the varieties of challenges faced by humanity and the natural world in a rapidly changing environment. Levy creates photographs on road trips to the swath of the American Great Plains that extends eastward from her Denver area home. There, she is inspired by the absence people and an abundance of seemingly empty space. For her, it feels like a tabula rasa from which to reflect on one’s relationship to the land and the natural world. Levy extends her image making practice to the studio, as well, where she constructs additional photographs and scans using collected objects, and search for vintage illustrations. New narratives then emerge through her image combinations to become finished works.

The Deco Lounge is one of the coolest spaces in the building with an art deco vibe accented by Dale Chihuly’s Blue Sapphire Chandelier. It is open before theatre performances, during intermissions and by request. The Deco Lounge also functions as a gallery, showcasing and selling the work of Colorado’s finest artists with First Friday Art Party events and displays managed by the FAC Museum Shop.

Curtis Arts and Humanities Center

Richard Alden Peterson

April 3 - April 28, 2017
Opens April 8, 6-8pm

Richard Alden Peterson, a 65 year old California native, is an experimental Colorado photographer since 1987, an arts community organizer, a photography teacher, and creator of an ongoing creative artist portrait series originally instigated in conjunction with MCA Denver. His imaginative art photos have been exhibited widely, and are in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. For more than 53 passionate years his obsessions with creative photography and writing led him to unexpected and exciting adventures. In the mid-1970s, he became Aerial Photography for an early Punk 'zine, Search & Destroy. During this immersion into the eclectic San Francisco Punk scene, he photographed emerging legends passing through such as Iggy Pop, Blondie, Talking Heads and The Ramones.

In 1987, he moved to Denver to work as an advertising photographer for an upscale fashion store, Printemps. He stayed in Colorado with a Denver studio, continuing to create atmospheric portraits, and manipulated images.In 2012, the far-sighted MCA Denver museum director Adam Lerner gave Richard his first museum show where he appeared alongside prints created for Bruce Conner with Punk photos and artist portraits. And, still a passionate and driven artist, he continually creates new and unique art at his mountaintop studio
outside of Denver.

About the Curtis Arts and Humanities Center
Originally built as a one room schoolhouse in 1914 to serve ten local students, the historic, brick building is now home to the Curtis Arts and Humanities Center. The Curtis School was formally opened in 1914 with no running electricity or water. The 1 acre of land the school sits on was originally donated by area resident Mary J. Curtis in 1901. In 1991 the building was dedicated as the Curtis Arts and Humanities Center. Today, the Curtis Center continues to be a learning center for the arts. The center offers art instruction, rotating visual arts exhibits, lectures and the occasional performance. The Curtis Arts and Humanities Center is owned and operated by the City of Greenwood Village.

DATELINE

MARCH

DATELINE:36

Jóga Boyd and Daniel Alexander Orr
Friday March 3 - 31 2017
Opening Saturday, March 4, 6-11PM

Dateline presents A Collection of Egos featuring the photographic documentation of people who use and abuse life to the maximum. Joga Boyd is a black Trans man based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Boyd has been in recovery from drugs and alcohol and their day job is being a drug and alcohol counselor. Under the handle of @egomaps35mm on Instagram Boyd documents the daily lives of the people they meet with little to no regard for what is considered taboo in America today. The result is haunting and genuine work that serves as a startling yet beautiful expose into the darker side of the human condition.    

Daniel Alexander Orr investigates themes of isolation and transience through images of nature's clash with human desire and longing. In contrast to Jogas work, Daniel’s work examines restraint and distance through sampled views of daily life and portraiture, confronting the dichotomous pull between destruction and preservation - socially, politically, personally and existentially. His work is defined by the loose separation that exists between a singular ego and collective ego/ collective consciousness, the camera serving as a mediation between the two.

APRIL 

What are the Wild Waves Saying:

Zak Rose and Kyle Seis
April 7 - 29 2017
Opening Saturday, April 8, 6-11PM

Dateline presents What are the Wild Waves Saying featuring new works by Zak Rose and Kyle Seis. Both artists are interested in pushing the boundaries of what constitutes a photograph and do so in playful and meaningful ways. Zak's works take the very personal feeling of isolation that often draws a photographer to the medium and glitches/modifies street photographs to create harmony and balance in a world he feels has little of either. Kyles investigations in light, space, shape, and form echo Zak's work aesthetically but move further into abstraction, being both very sculptural and present at times and then soothing and almost elusive at others.

Artworks and Photographic projects by DAVA Youth

Opens Thursday March 30th, 4:00 - 7:30 pm
March 30th - June 7th, 2017

The exhibit addresses healthy life choices and social issues through artworks by DAVA youth. A portion of this exhibit, focusing on health and wellness will showcase photographic projects created by DAVA youth ages 7 to 17 in the open studio to coincide with the Month of Photography in Colorado. The exhibit opens to the public with a reception on Thursday March 30th from 4 to 7:30 pm and runs through June 7th, 2017. DAVA (Downtown Aurora Visual Arts) is located at 1405 Florence Street, one block south of Colfax in the Aurora Arts District. 
 
During this annual exhibition, middle and high school students tackle important subjects like substance abuse, health, social behavior, and racial issues while elementary school students focus on nutrition and exercise. They research areas of their choosing before selecting a medium through which their ideas are expressed.  The resulting exhibition is designed to educate the community through the eyes of young people.

Students ages 7 to 17 in the open studio are learning about photographic processes through projects using film photography, pinhole photography, photo-collage, stop motion, and iphonography. They will make pinhole cameras and use them in February with the help of students from the Community College of Aurora. 

All of DAVA’s exhibits are free and open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday or by appointment. For more information about the exhibits email gallery@davarts.org

Moving Mountains and Range: Of Masters Of Photography
Penelope Umbrico.

March 10 – April 15, 2017
Opens Friday, March 10, 6-8 PM 2017
Free and open to the public
 
David B. Smith Gallery is pleased to present the photographic works of Penelope Umbrico. Gleaning from the series, Moving Mountains and Range: Of Masters of Photography, this exhibition will draw attention to the ongoing project where Umbrico pays homage to the mountain and the master historical photographers who captured this subject. Using her iPhone and myriad apps and filters, Umbrico reshoots images taken by artists like Edward Weston and Ansel Adams. In doing so, she explores the mutability of both the enduring subject matter and the supposedly long-standing nature of the image itself. Selected public collections include Denver Art Museum, Guggenheim Museum (NY), International Center of Photography (NY), McNay Museum of Art (TX), Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY), Museum of Contemporary Photography (IL), Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (CA), Museum of Modern Art (NY), and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (CA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), among others.

_________________
Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore PlaceHamilton Building Level 4
Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore Place will feature site-specific installations by 13 Latino artists that express experiences of contemporary life in the American West. 

Energizing and vibrant artwork will be presented by Carmen Argote (Los Angeles), Jaime Carrejo (Denver), Gabriel Dawe (Dallas), Claudio Dicochea (San Antonio), Daniela Edburg (San Miguel de Allende), Justin Favela (Las Vegas), Ana Teresa Fernández (San Francisco), Ramiro Gomez (West Hollywood), John Jota Leaños (San Francisco), Dmitri Obergfell (Denver), Ruben Ochoa (Los Angeles), Daisy Quezada (Santa Fe), and Xochi Solis (Austin).These artists examine diverse narratives of migration and the complex layering of cultures throughout the Western United States through ideas related to labor, nostalgia, memory, visibility, and displacement. Installations will incorporate mixed-media, performance-based video art, digital animation, fiber constructions, painting, sculpture, and ceramics.To foster creativity and provide insight into the artistic process, the on-site development of the installations will be visible to the public beginning in December 2016, with scheduled opportunities for visitors to engage with artists. The exhibition will open February 19, 2017, and will be on view through October 22 of that year.

Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore Place is organized by the Denver Art Museum, and is curated by Rebecca Hart, Polly and Mark Addison Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the DAM. An exhibition catalog will be available in The Shops and online.

It is generously funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Vicki and Kent Logan, the donors to the Annual Fund Leadership Campaign, and the citizens who support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). Promotional support is provided by 5280 Magazine, CBS4, Comcast Spotlight, and The Denver Post.
_____________
Audacious: Contemporary Artists Speak OutHamilton Building - Level 3

British artist Damien Hirst famously said, “Art survives through its effect on others.” As a leader in the contemporary art world, he, like his peers, considers making art a way to convey ideas about culture, human relationships, the environment, and politics.
The artworks included in Audacious: Contemporary Artists Speak Out have the potential to invite or even incite conversation about the world around us. The outlandish presentation of ideas using simplified or crude depictions, everyday materials, or riffs on cultural conventions helps infuse contemporary art with provocative, sometimes challenging, content.
This installation will feature the Denver Art Museum’s collection of contemporary art and signature loans from local collectors. Audacious highlights, among others, works by Franz Ackermann, Brian Alfred, Christo, Tracey Emin, John Fudge, Philip Guston, Damien Hirst, Martin Maloney, Ana Mendieta, and Shirin Neshat.

Audacious: Contemporary Artists Speak Out is organized by the Denver Art Museum. It is presented with generous support from Vicki and Kent Logan, the donors to the Annual Fund Leadership Campaign, and the citizens who support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).

Month of Photography Lecture Series

For 2017’s Month of Photography Denver, The Denver Art Museum is pleased to present four Front Range photographers working across the diverse spectrum of the medium:

March 3: Carol Golemboski
March 17,: Andrew Beckham
March 23: Gary Emrich
March 30: Benjamin Rasmussen

All talks start at 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Hamilton Building, Lower Level
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. 
 
March 3, 2017: Carol Golemboski
From photography’s earliest days, the medium has mingled science with magic. With scenes constructed from her personal cabinet of curiosities, Carol Golemboski’s work recalls this sense of amazement. Her hand-abraded negatives with additions of drawings and text evoke the fears and fascinations of womanhood and evince hazy memories that might be real and might not. Golemboski is Associate Professor and Area Head of Photography at the University of Colorado Denver. Her monograph, Psychometry, was published by Flash Powder Press in 2016.

March 17, 2017: Andrew Beckham
Andrew Beckham has been called a “visual poet” for his contemplative body of work that seeks to make sense of humanity’s place in nature. In his photography, the minutia of life has equal weight to the sublime vista. His juxtapositions of scale and visual associations elicit thoughts on both form and the psyche, and lend poignancy to the places and things he depicts. The Colorado Springs Fine Art Center presented an extensive mid-career retrospective of Beckham’s work, Firmament, in 2013 in conjunction with the publication of his monograph by George F. Thompson Books.

March 23, 2017: Gary Emrich
A fourth-generation Coloradan, Gary Emrich uses humor and pop-culture iconography to both celebrate and poke fun at the myths of the West in his art. Making what he calls “straight photographs in the studio,” Emrich constructs his images from found and collected materials that include family mementos, kitsch objects, and even throw-away packaging. Through his inventive recontextualizations, he addresses deeper concerns like water scarcity, the aerospace industry, and personal memories. Promise, an exhibition of Emrich’s recent work in photography and video, was featured at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center in 2016.

March 30, 2017: Benjamin Rasmussen
Benjamin Rasmussen grew up in a family of missionaries in rural Philippines and questions of home, community, and identity were endemic to his childhood experience. These human connections have continued to drive his photographic practice. In Down Hernani Shores, Rasmussen documents the destruction and rebuilding of the town of Hernani, Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan. Combining portraiture and landscape work, along with drawings by the town’s children, he reveals the effects of the typhoon on the residents’ lives and livelihoods. By the Olive Trees, a collaborative work with Michael Friberg self-published in newspaper format, presents the olive tree as a marker of permanence in a place defined by its tenuousness—the Zaatari Syrian refugee camp in Jordan.

Tree and Leaf
Works by Thomas Carr

Carr’s large-scale color and black and white photographs depict each of Colorado’s colorful seasons. Each image within Tree and Leaf is an attempt to honor the many natural places throughout the state while capturing the beauty and personality of an array of tree varieties.  Carr enjoys creating metaphors regarding the cycles of life in nature through his photographs.

Thomas Carr is an archaeologist and photographer living in Denver, Colorado. He works with digital and film cameras. His artistic influences include Eugene Atget, Fay Godwin, Edward Weston, and Paul Caponigro. His work has been shown in numerous juried, group, and solo exhibitions over the last 30 years, including a large retrospective at the Denver Public Library in 2015.

“Silent Sentinels: Minuteman Missiles on the Plains”
New Works by Evan Anderman
On View March 2 – April 28, 2017

Opening Reception with the artist: March 2, 6 – 9 pm
Additional Reception with the artist: April 6, 6 – 9 pm

Gallery open by appointment info@evananderma.com or 303.832.6200
evananderman.com/project/in-plain-sight

The area surrounding the Pawnee National Grassland northeast of Greeley, Colorado has seen a long history of contested land uses.  Ranching is the main agricultural activity that has flourished, the landscape dotted by stock tanks and windmills with cowpaths etched between in a large-scale game of Tinkertoy.  More recent activities are increasingly intrusive on the landscape.  In the last 10 years almost 400 wind turbines were installed on the bench just north of the grassland.  At the same time, the discovery of oil and the growing use of fracking has resulted in the drilling of almost 100 wells in the private land that is interspersed within the grassland.  These wells are drilled in groups from large pads crowded with equipment.  The light pollution at night from both the windmills and oil wells is considerable, not to mention the increase of heavy truck traffic from the oil-field activities.

Interspersed within all of this is another, more ominous neighbor: dozens of nuclear missiles.  Installed in the 1960’s in a loose pattern to make destruction by the Russians difficult, these missile silos dot the landscape every few miles or so and sit silently on a hair trigger, surrounded by a tall, barbed-wire fence.  Each location has the same characteristic elements: a tall white spike housing a security system, a newer security system mounted on a telephone pole just outside the fence, and a characteristic orange weather vane on one of the fence corners.  Once you know all these components, it is easy to pick out the silo locations from the surrounding landscape.

In the end, the most striking thing about the missile silos is the dichotomy between how unobtrusive they are, placed within the peaceful landscape, yet they represent unimaginable destruction.  It gives one a pause when you realize what exactly you are looking at.

The exhibition opens Thursday, March 2, 2017 from 6-9pm and will be on view through April 28, 2017 at Evan Anderman Photography located at 209 Kalamath, Unit 4, Denver, CO.  Gallery hours are by appointment info@EvanAnderman.com. 

About Evan Anderman: 
Anderman’s photography can be found in the collection of the Denver Art Museum as well as many private collections across the country. His work has been exhibited at institutions nationally and internationally, including DongGang International Photo Festival/South Korea, Mt Rokko International Photo Festival/Japan, Denver Public Library, Midwest Center for Photography, The Dairy Center for the Arts, The Arvada Center, American Mountaineering Center, Denver International Airport, The Museum of Outdoor Arts, The Arts Student’s League of Denver, Carmen Wiedenhoeft Gallery, The Colorado State Capitol, Robischon Gallery, Lamont Gallery, Buttonwood Art Space, and in his own gallery in Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District. In November 2013, Anderman was honored for his unique environmental photography with the inaugural Photo District News (PDN) Duggal Image Maker Award. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of CENTER Santa Fe. Prior to becoming a full-time photographer, Anderman spent decades working as a geologist, and holds a Master’s and a PhD in Geological Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines and a BS in Geological Engineering from Princeton University.

EXPLORING THE COLLAGE CITY
An Exhibition of Photography

Featured Artists:
Armando Martinez
Shana Cordon

On View February 24th - Mar 30th, 2017
Opens Friday, Feb 24th, 7-10pm

Salon
Tuesday, March 7th, 7-9pm


Feral Factory’s four-month Residency at the Crash begins with an
exhibition for the Month of Photography. Artists Armando Martinez
and Shana Cordon present a collection of images which illuminate
the themes of urban collage and the collage city.

Martinez’s photography exposes the sublime in the everyday lives
of his subjects, a cross-section of urban dwellers who represent
the heterogeneity of cities. Cordon’s work abstracts the image of
the city, both reducing it to impressions and revealing the
accidental collisions of texture and intention which exist in cities at
every scale. Martinez exposes us to urban life; Cordon, to the
marks this life leaves behind.

This exhibition draws its questions from the urban theories of
Colin Rowe, Fred Koetter, Kevin Lynch, Jane Jacobs, and others.
While Martinez and Cordon set the stage, the exhibition will
continue with three more shows through the end of June, 2017.

Gildar Gallery
Alien Linguistic Lab
Sarah Schönfeld
Through March 10th 2017

Gildar Gallery presents Alien Linguistic Lab, the US solo debut of Berlin-based artist Sarah Ancelle Schönfeld. Schönfeld’s broad practice encompassing sculpture, performance, installation, and photography is informed as much by indigenous perspectivism as the spiritual dimension of science and technology. In this exhibition, Schönfeld offers a series of treatments for our current state of anxiety and alienation in a globalized society, specifically focussing on the techno-sociological conclusion that UFO's are manifestations of nuclear angst, a thesis which gained prominence in the 1950s. Schönfeld suggests that this manifestation of stress could be understood as imbalance in the spirit world and mental health issues alike. She examines several methods to escape, eliminate, include and defend these spirits or disease by comparing strategies like pharmacology, shamanism, psychotherapy, magic rituals, space travel, mythology and their different dimensions and potentialities.

Within the exhibition a variously related bodies of work come together to form the laboratory. Flying Sorcerer is an open workshop, an actualization of several medieval European and older South American traditions of intentionally destroying pottery, used in wedding and funeral rituals to scare bad spirits. Schönfeld re-appropriates and customizes this technique inviting the audience to throw saucers against the gallery wall in the exhibition. Using gravity as a controlled way of flying and crashing, the shivers (shiver meaning both “to tremble” and a piece of pottery) that have been shattered will be reassembled on site in an act of instant archaeology. These reformed objects will be listened to using a record player and a Morse App. The act of throwing objects as a domestic "reenactment" of the UFO phantasm, is supposed to enable us to get over the shiver and decode to the message of alienation. The complete product, now fractured, opens room for the metaphysical interpretation throughout its gaps.

This workshop is embedded in a presentation of imaginary tools and oracles, works developed by Schönfeld in recent years. In her series Shamanistic Space Travel Equipment, organic textures and cosmic imagery fuse into a single complex surface. Imagery from popular science-fiction films along with actual scientific images from NASA printed onto cowhide combine frontier mythologies in a process of physical alchemy. This altered traditional ritual-wear becomes a surface of both cosmic-scientific gnosis and blockbuster entertainment — helping spirits merge with technology. In the results from Schönfeld’s Pharmaceutical Cosmology Lab, the artist chemically transmogrifies a variety of anti-anxiety drugs to create visually hypnotising portraits. Forging the photo chemical surface of the negative with these psychoactive medications, the resulting photographic reactions appear as glowing planets of induced calm. Both of these series refer to the translation of cosmological metaphors of inner and outer space, as François Bucher puts it:


“These new radio telescopes can only show us what they heard and saw by way of their own theater of artificial color-coded images, catered pedagogically for our human perceptual apparatus. So in a sense those images are yet another story, another mythology fabricated in order to hint at something that is essentially incomprehensible.”

Schönfeld’s choice of materials reflects the eclecticism of late-stage capitalism, where boundaries must be crossed to face complexity and the question of culture and nature has to be examined once more. In each of her works unexpected materials are playfully melded into specific perceptual treatments. With formal subtlety, the viewer’s senses are jostled until disciplinary boundaries selectively dissolve into conceptual portals, where loose threads cross, unsnarl, blend into new insights.


More About the Artist

Schönfeld studied under Lothar Baumgarten at The University of The Arts in Berlin. She has exhibited widely, including recent solo exhibitions at Zabriskie Point in Geneva, Galleria Mario Iannelli in Rome, Dapiran Project Space in Amsterdam. She has participated in many institutional shows, including at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, the Kunstverein in Wolfsburg, Hamburger Kunsthalle in Hamburg, the Museo Paco des Artes in Buenos Aires, the Muzeum Ludwig in Budapest, Fotomuseum Winterthur in Switzerland.

Paper Skies works by Brenda Biondo
Of Progress works by Alpert + Kahn                   
Opens: Thursday, March 2, 5 - 8 pm
On View: March 2 - April 15, 2017

Goodwin Fine Art is pleased to present two concurrent exhibitions during Month of Photography, featuring recent work by Brenda Biondo and Alpert + Kahn. 

Brenda Biondo’s ongoing series Paper Skies continues to investigate new and unexpected abstract compositions that are created by re-photographing archived images of the sky taken at various times of the day.  Biondo takes the existent photograph and proceeds to cut, fold and reshape the printed image.  The altered original image is then re-photographed against the backdrop of a new sky.   Through this process that is both equal part chance and intentional Biondo delves further into the basic tenets of abstraction and visual perception through her newly discovered composition. 

The duo Alpert + Kahn, comprised of Douglas Kahn and Renee Alpert work in tandem to produce geometric abstractions from their photographs of urban construction and industrial sites located in the western states region.  Their initial untouched photograph provides the structural framework or armature for the drawing process they engage in to create their elaborate and labyrinth-like compositions.

Helikon Gallery

‘Process: the altered photo’ On view in the main gallery from March 18 - April 22, 2017
Opens Saturday, March 18th 6:00 - 10:00 PM

Patrick Loehr, Stacey Page, Nicki Crock, Frances Berry, Daisy Patton, Peter Yumi, Will Lee-Ashley, Vinni Alfonso, Jessica Wohl, Emma Abad, Lori Chung, Corianne Wells, Manny Robertson, Curt Bean, Anitra Isler, Jinsil Lee, and Karen Fisher.

‘Process’ is an exhibit at Helikon Gallery coinciding with Denver’s popular city-wide event, the Month of Photography. Rather than a traditional photography exhibit, the show features artists from Colorado and abroad whose work uses photography as a means to an end rather than an end in itself - manipulation, alteration, and incorporation of photography in other media, such as painting, drawing, digital art, and collage. The show will include work that has both photographic and mixed media elements as a means of illustrating the power and importance of photos in the creation of contemporary art. 
1st Friday, April 7, 2017 (6-10pm). Receptions are free and open to the public including food and drinks.

De/constructing landscape
Annie Aqua
On view in the annex gallery from March 18 - April 7, 2017
Opens Saturday, March 18th 6:00 - 10:00 PM
In the annex gallery we are pleased to present ‘de/constructing landscape,’ a solo show of new works by Annie Aqua. Continuing a three-year long project, this series focuses on freeways, exploring the ways in which they function as public or private spaces in between the city and the suburbs, and how they are experienced in time and space. These structures, immediately recognized as iconic and everlasting elements of the suburban American landscape, are taken as a jumping-off point for processes of defamiliarization and disorientation. The artist’s own intervention seeks to deconstruct a societal structure and propose alternate trajectories of experience and understanding. 1st Friday, April 7, 2017 (6-10pm). Receptions are free and open to the public including food and drinks.

“Face to Face, a photographic look at people and place as portraiture.”
Michael Reiger, Donovan Reiger, Jan Eitel,John Vigran

March and April.

Michael Reger
Creating art is an ongoing process of discovering connections and relationships. Every piece tells a story.
 
My work as a photographer has led me to a wide variety of stories. As a historical photographer for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) I have documented the aftermath of dozens of disasters, including 9-11 World Trade Centers, Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and many wildfires, floods, and tornados. I have also worked internationally, using the lens to capture moments of community building and artistic expression throughout the world, including Southeast Asia, Egypt, and Europe. I love street photography, and have a camera with me at all times.
 
As an artist, I pursue these images and stories through different mediums. My projects often start with a picture. I might transform the image into an etching, accentuating a certain tone or mood. Or I might use a photograph as a starting point for an oil pastel, making the image larger, brighter and bolder. Or it might lend itself to a mosaic or a carved tile, where the image becomes three-dimensional.

Charlotte Thurman
At Every Time

Exhibition and Performance

March 31st Performance - 7-8pm
Opening reception  8-11pm.
Through the meticulous deconstruction of a recorded experience into its parts: moving image, text, sound, space, time; Charlotte shapes the diaristic and mundane into the realm of non-linear dream logic. She is searching for a locus of experience that is pre-language and pre-time. Paradoxically and inextricably, recorded text and time-based media are the methods in which she explores such a notion. She employs photography as an element in terms of documentation and the relationship it has to the moving image.
Charlotte Thurman is an interdisciplinary artist, whose practice bridges multi-media and immersive installation. Charlotte received her BFA in Mixed Media from the College of Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2009, and her MFA in Sculpture from the University of Delaware in 2016. Charlotte is a Contributing Faculty member of the Art Department at Santa Fe University of Art and Design, and a Manager of Operations at Meow Wolf’s Interactive Art Complex, “The House of Eternal Return.” She is the co-author of the feminist arts publication, “Life Raft.”

SKINS
Tya Anthony

March 11 - April 8th, 2017
Opens Saturday, March 11, 7:00 - 11:00 PM

SKINS, is an photographic exploration of the complexities of American Culture in the 21st Century. The idealization of the body is examined physically and metaphorically through play, lighting and process. Inspired by organic colors and textures that environmental weathering create during the aging process, gender, career, culture, ethnicity, age and class all disappear revealing the one constant, autonomy.

Tya Alisa Anthony is a fine artist exploring identity through photography + mixed media. Anthony received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 2015, honored as Valedictorian, from Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. Her collected, altered and own photographs are confronted as aesthetically resilient & thematically interrelated material. Anthony is currently investigating the effects of time, loss & the human condition. With the aid of analogue photography combined with current digital technology, Tya Alisa Anthony approaches a wide scale of social, political and environmental subjects. Presently, Anthony lives and works in the city of Denver, producing photography editorials & fine art installations for both commissions and exhibition.

Anthony's use of costuming communicates a vision of an imagined self. Her self-portraits reflect and evolution of cultural beliefs enhanced by mythology, cinema, culture and Art History.  Anthony is often inspired by childhood memories and her extensive imagination.

In collaboration with phenomenal artist, Thomas "Detour" Evans, and Dr Paul Hamilton of Denver CO,  Anthony contributed photographic and documentary work to They Still Live, an exploration of the African Diaspora in the Western World. Each African American participant received a genetic DNA test to gather and reveal their detailed heritage information. The outcome of genetic testing was followed by a PBS documentary and an exhibit held at Redline Art Center of Denver.

As a developing documentary producer herself, Anthony has collaborated with natural lifestyle contributors, Colorado Urban Naturals, creating The Art of Being Natural. Participants living organically through nutrition and personal hair style were photographed and interviewed expressing their chosen lifestyle of refraining from the use of dangerous, yet common, chemicals, products and processed foods.

"I create visual personifications of identity narratives through photography, drawing and mixed media.  I explore the gaps of knowledge of my own heritage with vivid imagery addressing a once declared chameleon identity.  I compile diverse narratives to explore the idea of multiplicity and the OTHER.  I have found through experimentation and exploration, the foundation of individuality remains the same. I further investigate variations and manipulation of Identity by studying belief structures, an individual's formative years, familial influence and origin. Inevitably, our environment and these imposed structures inform our identity. I am most interested in metaphoric masks worn as protection and representation of Identity"

In 2011, Anthony, released a coffee table book entitled "Her Art & Soul" accompanied by solo Photography exhibit, "Dark to Light: Being Human," A Black and White Multi Media portrait collection, hosted by The Living Well of Baltimore MD.

Apocryphal Terrains by Lauri Lynnxe Murphy

"Apocryphal Terrains" by Lauri Lynnxe Murphy

Photography has always been a part of my sculptural practice, though I have never considered myself a “photographer”.  My approach to photography is sculptural in nature, in that it is concerned with creating fake “environments” and photographing them in macro.  I bounce between these spatial worlds, one process informing the other -- studio refuse in the form of colored bits of leftover plastic from resin pours creating colorful backdrops; the formal discoveries through the camera lens playing into sculptural compositions.  Much of my photography is taken in nature, incorporating the real landscape with the fake, invented landscape -- creating the illusion of expansive terrains within minutiae such as a hilly clump of moss or a crystalline patch of snow.  Conversely, on my hikes I drag back bits of nature -- beetle-bark laced pine and twisted stumps, and make them more “fake” in the studio.  Despite having done the photography side of this work for many years, it has rarely been shown; this show brings my process fully into the gallery.  Whether photography or sculpture, each story told by these objects is somewhat of a “lie” - not nature, but not entirely fake either, blending the two seamlessly to create a new space to inhabit.

Picture Me Here: Stories of Hope and Resilience by Refugees and Immigrants
January 29 - April 30, 2017
Boettcher Cultural Pavilion, 2nd Floor

Picture Me Here (PMH) is a storytelling program for refugees, immigrants and others who have been displaced. Photography, video, animation and writing are taught as creative tools for self expression, social engagement, community building, leadership, and integration. Participants explore and share their personal histories, cultural identities, new surroundings and resettlement experiences. They build skills in technology, English language, leadership, and public speaking. Projects culminate in exhibits, screenings and events that bring together diverse groups to view photographs, hear stories and build new connections.

Picture Me Here began in 2012 when a group of photographers and educators wanted to provide multimedia storytelling training and a supportive community for refugees. One project turned into many more and the PMH community has grown. Today PMH has successfully coordinated and implemented twelve local projects and two international projects with multiple local and international exhibits and presentations. PMH has formed collaborative partnerships with organizations and schools serving New Americans in Colorado and NGO’s serving refugees abroad. PMH has worked with various ages and ethnic groups, learning from the challenges and triumphs of each project. 2016 was a big year for PMH: In addition to more successful programming, PMH was featured in NPR for their work with displaced people in Nepal, they received a Mayor’s award for their work fostering integration in Denver and Aurora, they were awarded two competitive grants from the City of Denver, and PMH participant and mentor, Goshen Carmel, was selected as a representative of PMH and City of Denver’s Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs to visit the White House for a summit on refugees. 

This exhibit features various PMH projects from 2012 through today.

BASQUIAT BEFORE BASQUIAT
EAST 12TH STREET, 1979-1980.

February 11, 2017 to May 7, 2017

Opens February 10, 6PM-MIDNIGHT.

MCA Denver is pleased to announce Basquiat Before Basquiat: East 12th Street, 1979-1980. The exhibition includes the entire cache of works made by Jean-Michel Basquiat during the year he lived with his friend Alexis Adler in a small apartment in the East Village. This archival material provides rare insight into the artistic life of Basquiat before he was recognized as a prominent painter in the early 1980s. While living in this apartment, Basquiat’s creative impulses moved fluidly from his SAMO tags on the surrounding streets and neighborhood into a more sustained practice in their shared home. Through paintings, sculpture, works on paper, a notebook, and other ephemera, as well as Adler’s numerous photographs from this period, this exhibition explores how the context of life in New York informed and formed Basquiat’s artistic practice.

As Adler notes, “From mid-1979 to mid-1980, I lived with Jean in three different apartments, but for most of that time in an apartment that we moved into and shared on East 12th St. This was a time before Jean had canvases to work with, so he used whatever he could get his hands on, as he was constantly creating. The derelict streets of the East Village provided his raw materials and he would bring his finds up the six flights of stairs to incorporate into his art. Jean was able to make money for paint and his share of the rent, which was $80 a month, by selling sweatshirts on the street. He knew that he was a great artist."

Spanning four galleries on the first floor of MCA Denver, the exhibition and book will present New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s through the prism of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s art and provide a window into the art-rich time that he emerged from as well as impacted so profoundly. It will sharpen and deepen our understanding of this artist at a vital yet mostly unknown, or at least under-discussed, moment of his career. Ultimately, this exhibition will attest to Basquiat’s virtuosity in formation—the creative impulses that yielded a distinctive voice, but also the many diversions or paths he explored as he was developing a signature style.

Basquiat Before Basquiat: East 12th Street, 1979-1980 is on view from February 11, 2017 to May 7, 2017. The exhibition is curated by Nora Burnett Abrams. Join us for the opening celebration on February 10, 6PM-MIDNIGHT.

The exhibition is supported by presenting sponsors Henry and Lorie Gordon and a generous gift from Daniel Benel and Lena Fishman. MCA Denver exhibitions are also sponsored in part by the Director's Vision Society. MCA Denver also thanks the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.

RYAN MCGINLEY: THE KIDS WERE ALRIGHT

February 11, 2017 - August 20, 2017
Opens February 10, 6PM-MIDNIGHT


MCA Denver is pleased to announce Ryan McGinley: The Kids Were Alright. The exhibition will feature early photographs by McGinley, whose pioneering, documentary-style approach captured the antics and daily activities of himself, his friends, and collaborators in lower Manhattan in the late 1990s.
Occupying the entire second level of MCA Denver, the exhibition focuses on McGinley’s work from 1998 to 2003, from his earliest forays into photography to his rise to national prominence. The photographs present intimate moments of both exhilaration and introspection, often within a mundane setting, and demonstrate a sweeping range of emotions. McGinley’s works capture the essence of his lifestyle at the time: gritty, daring, and focused on moments of both pleasure and tedium, as well as illicit activities. Unstaged and unedited, McGinley’s use of light imbues all of the works with an intensity and profound emotional depth. They may depict a figure as brooding and contemplative or bursting with joyful exuberance. McGinley’s photos and Polaroids continually elevate these everyday moments and allow them to pulsate with life.
A rare instance of the artist re-examining his earliest major body of work, which was titled The Kids Are Alright, the exhibition at MCA Denver features many never-before-printed images. Additionally, over 1500 of McGinley’s Polaroids, which have never before been exhibited, will wrap the museum’s second floor. For this series, he documented nearly every visitor to his home and studio over the course of four years.
Works by Dash Snow and Dan Colen, two of McGinley's closest collaborators during this early period, complete the exhibition.
Ryan McGinley: The Kids Were Alright is on view from February 11, 2017 to August 20, 2017. The exhibition is curated by Nora Burnett Abrams. Join us for the opening celebration on February 10, 6PM-MIDNIGHT.
Ryan McGinley (born 1977, Ramsey, NJ) earned a BFA in graphic design from Parsons School of Design in 2000. The year prior to his graduation from Parsons, McGinley self-published a book titled The Kids Are Alright, which earned him the attention of New York’s art scene. Since then, McGinley’s photographs have been shown at institutions around the world, including MoMA PS1, New York; the National Portrait Gallery, London; Kunsthalle, Vienna; and MACRO, Rome. In 2003, when he was 25, McGinley was the youngest artist to have a solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. His work is in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C., the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among others. He is represented by Team Gallery, New York; Ratio 3 Gallery, San Francisco; and Galerie Perrotin, Paris.
Ryan McGinley: The Kids Were Alright is supported by Gucci and in part by the Director's Vision Society. MCA Denver also thanks the citizens of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.

Failure Lab, the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver's Teen Program, is an internship program for twelve high school students. Because we believe that risking failure is an integral element of creativity, we designed this program to provide teens with a unique opportunity to try out wild ideas. Always encouraged to take chances, teens engage with museum professionals, interact with artists, and work with other teens to organize exhibitions, programs, and events for their peers.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver's Teen Program: Failure Lab will present a photography exhibition in conjunction with an artist workshop led by George Perez that presents aspects of the collection, persona in objects, and the unedited transparency in the lives of teens.
 
About Lead Artist: George P. Perez, b. October 7, 1987, received a BFA (Cum Laude) in 2014 from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and currently resides in Denver, CO. Perez is an artist whose work explores mundane situations and scenarios that he interacts with on a day-to-day basis. Perez’s work can often be seen as a humorous but harsh narrative that reflects and critiques current values in today’s modern society, presenting another perception of banal circumstances. His practice primarily utilizes photography as a means of visual foundation, which at times presents interdisciplinary work that dives into a social practice.

Perez has shown up and down the Front Range of Colorado and outside of the state, including: (Un)Clothed, Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, CO, 2013; Archetype Drift: New Methods of Photography Making, Johalla Projects, Chicago, IL, 2013; Cultural Citizen: The Immigrant and the Stranger, The Bridge Gallery, Littleton, CO, 2014; BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS, GOCA121, Colorado Springs, CO, 2015; Monumental: RedLine’s Annual Resident Artist Exhibition, Redline Gallery, Denver, CO, 2016; and Visitation, grayDuck Gallery, Austin, TX, 2016.

Scholastic Art Awards
The Scholastic Art Awards of Colorado provide talented teenagers with an opportunity to be recognized in the visual arts at the state and national level. The Scholastic Art Awards program provides inspiration and validation for the next generation of American artists as it welcomes talented young people into the world of creativity, criticism, and patronage long before the world takes notice.
This collection of work features original photographs submitted by students across Colorado. All work has been juried and assigned an award in the following categories: Gold Key, Silver Key, and Honorable Mention. Artwork submitted to The Scholastic Art Awards of Colorado is collectively showcased here, as well as at History Colorado Center, Denver Art Museum, and the Sie Film Center.

“Throw My Ashes Into the Sea”
New Works by Daisy Patton

January 24, 2017 – March 4, 2017
Artist talk with Daisy Patton & Daisy McGowan: Saturday, February 4, 3pm- 5pm


Join us Saturday, February 4th, Daisy McGowan will lead will lead us through a discussion with Daisy Patton. We'll talk about her current exhibit, "Throw My Ashes Into the Sea" and find out what is happening in these large scale works. 

This is the gallery’s 2nd exhibition of Daisy Patton’s ongoing series “Forgetting is So Long.” Patton collects abandoned photographs and then enlarges them beyond their familiar size, before painting over them.  These individual photos and family portraits had been discarded, so when she collects them they are detached from any point of reference, leaving them to straddle the lines between non-existent memory and a suggested identity. By painting over them, Patton draws attention to the essence of being and and re-enlivens them with a newly imagined existence. 

Daisy Patton resides in Aurora, Colorado. Patton has a BFA in Studio Arts from the University of Oklahoma and an MFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University. Patton has completed artist residencies at RedLine Contemporary Arts Center in Denver, Eastside International in Los Angeles, and Anythink Libraries in Colorado; she will be an artist in residence at MASS MoCA in March 2017. 

Daisy McGowan is Director of the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art, or GOCA, a position she has served in since July 2010. McGowan has independently and collaboratively curated and produced over 50 exhibits in two gallery spaces for GOCA alongside a range of creative programs, including lecture series, noontime dance parties, mash-up talks and the biennial regional arts festival POLLINATE. McGowan is also an exhibiting artist working in mixed-media with a background in printmaking and sculpture. She received her BA in Studio Art from Colorado College and her MPA from the University of Colorado.

“Creative Destruction”
New Works by Margaret Lawless

with concurrent exhibit by Daisy Patton

Artist Reception w/ Margaret Lawless, Friday, January 27, 6-8pm
Artist Talk: Margaret Lawless with Janice McDonald, Saturday, February 25 10:30-12pm 

Creative destruction is a term used by economists to describe a process of innovation that consequentially replace previous iterations.  Margaret Lawless uses this pattern of building and tearing down as both the process for creating her work and also the subject.  Beginning with compositions based on the NYC photography of Berenice Abbott, Margaret Lawless creates for us a snapshot of the conditions of our modern society in which old buildings are replaced by the new, and previously conceived technologies are rendered obsolete by new advances. Lawless further uses this idea as a methodology for creating her artwork: building one layer on top of another.  Lawless collages, draws and paints one layer over another; she then covers over the entire work before beginning a process of sanding it back down to create something entirely new while revealing the old.

“Missed Connections” New Works by Paul Sisson

March 7, 2017 – April 15, 2017
with concurrent exhibits by Dallas Parkins and Kely McClung

Artist Reception w/ photographers, Friday, March 10 6-8pm Artist Talk: Saturday, March 11 10-12pm In the ever-growing expansion of technology, where websites and apps are pristinely designed for easy use and accessibility, Craigslist stands as a remedial virtual bulletin board that hasn’t changed its look in twenty years of existence. Craigslist is used for an endless amount of community listings; including buying and selling unwanted goods, job postings, and real estate. One of the most interesting, yet seemingly least useful, aspects of Craigslist is the Missed Connections page. There we find listings upon listings of men and women who have had a brief encounter with someone, a potential connection or interest, and for one reason or another were not able to act on it until they got home to their computer. These Missed Connections can be funny, sad, poignant, and beautiful all at the same time, but one thing they are never is dull. Sisson’s photographic version of Missed Connections takes a look at these oddly hopeful pursuits. Going to the scene of the missed connection and providing a glimpse into the moment that love at first sight was realized, and just as quickly lost. These voyeuristic images, paired with the original listing, provide context and objectivity to the fleeting romanticism experienced by the author.

"Metamorphosis: Transmutations” 
Works by Jeff Klapperich

Opens Friday, March 10th from 6-9pm
On View March 10th -  March 31st

Analogue photography is a means of exploring our surroundings through the chemical replication and manipulation of imagery. Alchemy aimed to purify through chemical transformation in pursuit of a more perfect object. Photographer Jeff Klapperich has a history of ambitiously embracing the power of artistic media to manipulate and transform. With solo show “Metamorphosis: Transmutations,” Klapperich expresses the concept of transmutation in the human experience through multi-image vignettes, transforming the human figure into elemental abstractions of shape, color and texture, using photographic and ceramic materials with a focus on their inherent alchemical properties.
A Colorado native now living in Brooklyn, Jeff Klapperich has spent the last decade specially developing a complex, multistage process involving drawing and ceramics, ultimately producing an analogue photograph combining the two. This unique process was dramatically showcased at Mike Wright Gallery during Denver's 2015 Month of Photography with series “Metamorphosis,” an exploration of the phenomenon of change in the cosmos, in nature, in art and in human life through its inclusion of these various mediums.
Klapperich's unique and complicated process starts with a photo of a figure in a studio. From this he creates a drawing and a crude, ceramic sculpture, allowing him to accentuate or oppose the forms that are present in the original image. The clay has an infinite number of textures and a capacity for dimension while remaining structural and anonymous. The final photograph is an  image of the sculpture captured using creative techniques in lighting and exposure and shot through acetate paintings in a large format camera. “With each step of the process, the image is altered, getting further from the reality of the model but closer to an artistic truth,” says Klapperich.
“Transmutations,” the “Metamorphosis” series's latest iteration includes the use of ceramic glaze, a medium which informed the inclusion of color into the final photograph and has turned Klapperich's attention toward the concept of alchemy.
One of the things that had always fascinated Klapperich about analogue photography was the point at which the process relies on chemical reactions and one is forced to wait for the results of an experiment. “There’s something of alchemy when you look at a sheet of film for the first time, or watch a print materialize before your eyes,” he says. In his pursuit of new materials and processes he found an excellent companion to this in glazes. “There’s a tremendous amount of trust given to formulas, and there’s something of alchemy when you open a kiln and see a finished piece for the first time. For these reasons I felt that this iteration of metamorphosis be entitled 'Transmutations'.” The metamorphosis of this work lies more in the materials than the concept, focused around the chemistry of photography and ceramics.
The images are grouped into vignettes, with each image representing one of the process's four stages. “The black and white components are the build-up, a setting off point where I’m gathering the materials for the crucible. I choose a figure image and then find shapes and materials that will compliment it in the clay. I also begin getting a vague idea about which glaze I’ll be using and let that inform the sculpture as well. It’s in these stages where I assert the most control, but where I am in a sense moving blindly, making intuitive leaps and relying on technical knowledge to tell me what works. Conversely, the color components are the let go, when all the work I’ve done is allowed to speak for itself, and to wander. The third image is a response to the results of the fired sculpture. No longer am I asserting control, but seeing what’s there and letting it control me. This is the alchemy, where bits of metal and clay transmute into grand abstractions. Finally, when this transformation is complete we are left with an image of the sculpture itself, rendered through the same lens as the others so that the analogy remains intact.”
These multi-image vignettes, named for the elements that inspired them, allow the viewer to sense Klapperich's vision, understand the complicated execution and, ultimately, to experience the transmutation for themselves. The composition visually takes the rigidity of strict, representational photography and reduces the human figure into elemental abstractions of shape, color and texture. A more perfect object? That will be for the viewers to decide. Mike Wright Gallery

Platte Forum

Pictorial Vexillography, Concerns in Different Regularities George P. Perez and ArtLab
Opens Saturday, March 18 12-2 PM
March 18 - April 1st

This exhibition, in tandem with the Month of Photography, features the Work of PlatteForum Lead Artist George P Perez and PlatteForum’s ArtLab Students DENVER – PlatteForum is pleased to announce the exhibition “Pictorial Vexillography, Concerns in Different Regularities” which will open 12-2PM, Saturday, March 18, 2017 with a free, public reception at PlatteForum, 2400 Curtis Street in Denver. The exhibitions runs through April 1st. Gallery hours are Tuesdays - Saturdays, noon-6pm. Developed by PlatteForum Lead Artist George P Perez, with PlatteForum’s own acclaimed ArtLab program, “Pictorial Vexillography” is a new exhibition that explores the teen’s view on identity and emblem. Vexillography is the practice of designing flags, and in so doing, one may create official statements to the outside world. Platteforum’s 16 high school youth interns will create flags and banners, based on their own photography, which are representative of their experiences, identities and world views. About the Artist George P. Perez is an artist that creates photographic works through impractical techniques such as long exposure, digital screen shot appropriation, and/or scanography. Perez’s work is based on banal, mundane or quotidian environments he interacts with on a day-to-day basis and/or his interpretation of present day society, either in real life or the digital realm, exploring the history of portraiture along side. Images are documented and manipulated to alter the meaning into another perception of a particular common narrative.
About ArtLab
ArtLab youth are involved in the creation and presentation of major works, mentored by professional artists, participate in workshops directed by visiting artists, mentor younger at-risk children during Learning Labs, and participate in service-learning projects. All projects address social issues affecting their generation which creates opportunities for youth to give voice to those issues. Each endeavor has clear goals and connections to the real world. This propels youth to become active members and catalysts for change in their communities. ArtLab integrates organic and structured activities with respectful interactions among all. Through individual and group struggles, challenges, and obstacles, ArtLab interns learn to work together as a team, communicate, accept differences, and focus on completing a project/goal together. In the end, ArtLab youth create high-quality works of art and experience a sense of accomplishment, pride, and shared purpose.
About PlatteForum Founded in 2002, PlatteForum is an innovative arts education and youth development organization serving 2,500 inner-city, underserved youth, their families, and the general public. PlatteForum provides in-depth, curriculum-based arts education experiences that meet state educational standards and allow for longer-term mentoring relationships between youth and master artists who work in residency at PlatteForum. These artist residencies offer time, space, and resources for professional artists to create new work and shape an experience where young people can learn through practice, expanding their sense of what is possible. This award-winning nonprofit organization provides a nurturing space where creativity and artistic excellence are highly valued and where artists and youth work together to model the creative process, emphasizing the connections between their artistic passion, significant life experiences, and public issues. The overall experience transforms the lives of the youth, the artists and the community. For more information visit www.platteforum.org. PlatteForum,

Processus 

Horror & Wonder
Michael Garlington
March 11- June 10, 2017
Opening Reception: March 11, 7-11 pm

Processus, the institute for art and life, 955 24th St. Denver CO 80205
Hours: 10 am to 6 pm, Tuesday to Saturday or by appointment. 

Michael Garlington is a photographer, master printer and sculptor who creates installations, photo-sculptures and photographic works with elaborate sculptural frames. The works in this exhibition reflect human emotions and experiences using 4 x 5 film and mixed media. Some of the works are created in collaboration with his partner Natalia Bertotti. 

Raised in Petaluma, California, where he lives and works, Michael was influenced early on by a wide mix of characters. He started working at his mother and step father’s photo Lab, Splinder Photographic, at 17. He embarked on an artistic mission at 21, creating backdrops for his figurative photo-sculptures. In 2000, he traveled with a group of artists across the US and Europe in PhotoCar, a car covered with his photos, gaining attention along the way. Since 2004, Michael has been included in Photo LA, Photo NY and Photo SF. He has exhibited internationally. Major projects include PhotoHouse created for San Francisco CameraWorks in 2010, the 40 feet tall PhotoChapel created at Burning Man in 2013 and a 60 foot tall Totem of Confessions in 2014 also at Burning Man. The pieces created for Burning Man were burned down in spectacular fiery deaths. Michael Garlington and Natalia Bertotti, who have been working together since 2013, now plan to create lasting installations such as a four ways confessional to be installed at the Hermitage Museum in Norfolk, Virginia, in June 2017.

Between the Medium
Seeing Photographically

March 10 - April 9, 2017
Opens: Saturday, March 11, 2017, 6 - 9 PM

A overview of the far reaching applications and concepts emerging in photography today.

Exploring the wide range in artists practices that happen to use photography as an ingredient. A survey of how the many mediums of contemporary art are mixing with photography and how it belongs less and less to a specific medium or traditional photographic category.  

“Photography itself is often described as particularly sensitive to changes in technology, art, and society-at-large. As a result, what matters for the medium has shifted many times throughout the course of its history and will continue to do so. This exhibition acts as a collective, nuanced and visual definition of what matters for photography today.”

Lecture

Mark Osterman, Photographic Process Historian and renowned photographic educator from the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York Tuesday, March 28, 2017 - 6:30PM  Lecture 7:00- 9:00PM
Mark Osterman

A Photographic Truth
 
From the time the inventors of photography struggled to produce and preserve the earliest attempts at chemical imagery, photographers have used the medium to create their own truths.  In the illustrated lecture, A Photographic Truth, Mark Osterman presents a humorous and informative look at how certain elements of photography are inherently untruthful and subject to manipulation.  Osterman's observations are based on primary research inspecting original artifacts from the George Eastman Museum collection, as well as his experiences recreating photographic processes that include the asphalt heliographs of Nicephore Niepce up to the earliest attempts of the Edison laboratory's motion picture film. Mark Osterman, Photographic Process Historian for the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York, teaches public and private workshops in early photographic processes from Niepce’s heliographs to gelatin emulsions. After beginning his research into historic photographic processes while attending the Kansas City Art Institute in the 1970s, he went on to co-publish The Collodion Journal from 1995-2002, and write and edit portions of the New Focal Encyclopedia of Photography. For ten years Osterman taught process identification for the Advanced Residency Program in Photograph Co search, writings, exhibitions and teaching, he has been an important influence in the current revival of collodion technique in fine art photography.

 All you need to do is to visit each participating gallery and collect each piece of the grid. There will be a special box at each site with one of the grid sections. Take only 1 print, enjoy the gallery and thank them for participating then move on to the next.

You'll have one month to collect all 16 and to complete your 'Little Big Picture'.

For those of you that do complete the photo hunt we will be giving some wonderful prizes chosen by random drawing.

Robischon Gallery is pleased to present three concurrent exhibitions featuring works by the highly-celebrated artist, Kiki Smith, recognized filmmaker, Stacey Steers, and widely exhibited artists, Kahn + Selesnick.  The visually poetic work of Smith, Steers and Kahn + Selesnick offer unique entry into complex, dream-like worlds, where human, flora and fauna interrelate and myth and metaphor merge.  Each featured innovative artist employs a multifaceted approach toward their practice.  Whether through utilizing the means of sculpture, prints or textile; filmmaking, collage, or drawing; or by the primary medium of photography – it is their shared visual sensibilities along with the marriage of handwork and sophisticated technologies which further unites.  In the overall three part exhibition, a range of media will be presented to include large and small scale work in photography, film, textile, sculpture and collage.

BASIC PICTURES
Joseph Coniff

March 4 - April 15, 2016
Opens: March 4, 6-9 PM Free and open to the public

Basic Pictures is held in conjunction with Denver’s Month of Photography 2017 and aligns closely with this year’s theme: Between the Medium, Seeing Photographically. The intention with this topic is to provide a survey of how artists use photo-based media and tools in unconventional ways to realize their visions, moving it out of its traditional category. 

In Basic Pictures, Joseph Coniff’s ultimate works are paintings, but the method he uses to create them involve multiple photographic techniques. Starting with everyday mark-making instruments like Sharpies, Coniff makes gestural sketches on copy paper which he then captures using a flatbed scanner. This harkens back to the photograms of Man Ray: darkroom works where the artist bypassed the middle-media of negatives by layering objects directly onto photographic paper, resulting in collaged imagery that can vary from ghostly to sharp, to surreal and dreamlike. With the scanned images at his palette, Coniff, like many modern photographers, employed software to manipulate the results: enlarging, zooming, cropping, and recomposing them to produce the source material for the paintings. Through this process he explores how photographers capture and modify their basic images to look at things in greater detail and achieve a deeper sense of understanding. 

Joseph Coniff (b. 1981) received a BFA in studio art from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and design in 2011. His work has been included in New American Paintings, Creative Quarterly, Studio Visit Magazine, and Vogue Espana. Coniff was listed as one of Denver’s 2012 Top Up-and-Coming Artists and was featured as one of Denver Westword’s 100 Colorado Creatives in 2014. He has received two Best of Denver Westword awards, both for RULE Gallery solo exhibitions: the first in 2012, and the second in 2014. Coniff’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. RULE Gallery has exhibited contemporary abstract and conceptual works, including paintings, sculpture, photography, and works on paper, by both established and emerging national artists, since 1991. The gallery has locations in Denver, Colorado, and Marfa, Texas.

Sally Centigrade Art Gallery

Andrew Novick & Miu Vermillion
Opening March 9
March 9 - April 6, 2017

The Sally Centigrade Art Gallery was created as a place to host contemporary art, with an emphasis on work from the lowbrow and pop surreal movement.  The gallery has been fortunate enough to work with some of the scene's most popular artists, and was named Denver's Best Lowbrow Art Gallery by Westword Magazine.  Our art shows have been featured in a number of the art worlds most popular outlets, including Arrested Motion, Supersonic Art and Beautifull.Bizarre.  The gallery is a venue to showcase Denver's most interesting artists, and bring work from popular artists from around the country and the world to the Mile High City.  The artist residency program has been created to  give artists a chance to come to Denver and create, immerse themselves in our art scene and use our gallery as a venue to show their new body of work.  

Our artist residency offers free lodging for the duration of the program.  The artist will be given a commission free show (either a pop up or full run depending on the length of the residency).  It is a fantastic opportunity for artists to have a potentially high profile show, spend time in Denver with designated time and space to create and join the Denver art scene.

“Vantage Point”
Tony Ellis, Paul Brokering

February 17th - March 25th, 2017
Opens Friday, February 17th, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The work featured in Vantage Point comes from the overlapping reality of two artists working in Colorado's Front Range
and Eastern plains stretching into Nebraska. You might be thinking of bucolic farms or Denver skyline stock photos. Don't. Artists Tony Ellis and Paul Brokering are out to reawaken our experience of the commonplace with a visually powerful response to the question: What makes a photograph fine art? Setting the stage for Denver's Month of Photography, Vantage Point will compel you to decide for yourself.

Tony Ellis photographs are often mistaken for paintings. In his first exhibition at Space Gallery, Ellis elevates the remnants of Denver street art and urban grit into images that live somewhere between super and abstract realism. 

A graduate of the West of England College of Art, Ellis works on Colorado wind energy projects. "At first I was taking photographs for fun, then my love of abstract art kicked in and I found myself discovering what I see as "accidental Rothko’s” on abandoned buildings, old trains and rusted ranch equipment."

After several exhibitions in the Midwest, Ellis’s work was acquired for the permanent collections of the Urban Institute for Contemporary Art in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2014, and the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa, in 2016.

Ellis returned to Colorado two years ago to focus on Denver's urban environment "and the ephemeral detail of deteriorating graffiti, altered by weather, paint or, better yet, attempts to remove it from places we walk by every day."


Paul Brokering's focus on buildings we might dismiss as mundane artifacts of rural life emerge as bold studies of artistic elements. "We drive by these buildings often and seldom take time to stop and discover the beauty of these structures that never change," he offers. Brokering's emphasis on shape, color, and repeating patterns of built environments draws us away from a building's function to its powerful aesthetic. 

Brokering, a native Coloradan and former resident and graduate of the University of Nebraska College of Architecture, returned to Denver ten years ago. Brokering admits that his passion for photography happily coexists with his career as an architect. The instant gratification of digital photography, combining the promise of more control of the creative process and his natural love of gadgets, were a powerful elixir pulling him towards photography.

Brokering has exhibited his photographic work in Colorado and Nebraska since 2005. This is his second exhibition of abstract images at Space Gallery.

Also on the mezzanine  a juried exhibition of the work of artma artists
Madeleine Dodge, Pat Isaacs, John Matlack.

On View March 9th – March 26th, 2017
Opens Friday, March 10th 6:00-9:00 pm

An evolution, perhaps a revolution in the art and
craft of photography has happened to the art world.  A camera in smart
phones means a camera in almost everyone’s hand out in the big
beautiful world.  

Juror Mark Sink: “The camera on your phone is an amazing tool. It has
changed the world's social consciousness through social media, fine
art and photojournalism. Everyone from the very young to very old now
share the magic of photography in all its forms with a simple phone.
Some of the greatest photographers and artists in the world use this
tool for their work. The theme for this exhibition is open. I look
forward to seeing what the artist in you has to offer. I look for work
that speaks from your heart, happy or sad, artistic or
photojournalistic.”

SVPER ORDINARY

BACK BEFORE DARK
New Works by Jack Ludlam
February 25th - April 4th, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 25th 2017, 6p.m. - 10p.m. Denver, CO - (FEBRUARY 25th 2017) SVPER ORDINARY Gallery is pleased to present BACK BEFORE DARK, a collection of photographs by Denver-based artist/photographer Jack Ludlam. This exhibition will mark Jack’s second solo show at SVPER ORDINARY. Please join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, February 25th from 6pm-10pm. The artist will be in attendance.
About Jack Ludlam - www.jackludlam.com There is something to be said for the person that steers away from the mechanical manifestations of the modern day world. This type of person might disregard monetary gain in order to produce a good or service that is truly reliable and often gets neglected or even forgotten in the fast paced, commercial world that we have constructed. Rather than encouraging mass production, cheap prices, and convenience, we as part of a community can look to these craftspeople for inspiration and guidance.
The inspiration gained from these "makers" (those who work with their hands), led Jack to embrace traditional film photography rather than digital processes. Support from his family enabled him to purchase his first film camera, a Hasselblad 500cm. In 2013, Jack graduated from Regis University with a BA in Visual Arts (with an emphasis in photography). The practice and tangibility of shooting and working in the dark room and producing photographs with his hands immediately connected with Jack, allowing him to 

About SVPER ORDINARY Since 2010, SVPER ORDINARY (then, Super Ordinary Gallery) has been exhibiting emerging modern and contemporary artists from its pop-up location in Denver’s RiNo District. In November 2013, the well-regarded art space relaunched as SVPER ORDINARY Gallery + Boutique. SVPER ORDINARY has evolved the original gallery and art aspect to include a highly-curated collection of beautifully designed home goods and accessories with an emphasis on artful living. This new direction signals not only the growth of SVPER ORDINARY, but also Denver’s expanding creative and lifestyle culture. Enhancing the landscape of local retail o erings in Denver, the gallery + retail concept will o er patrons a comprehensive art and design experience. The founders of SVPER ORDINARY (Josh Wills, Tran Wills, Pedro Barrios and Bryan Cavanagh) all extend from established backgrounds in art, design and fashion. Together the group form a distinct creative point-of-view and are respected as leaders in the Denver creative community. Inspired by a vast network of contemporary creative’s, the partners look to collaborate with local, national and international artists and designers.

Opens March 3 from 7-10

An exciting exhibit focusing on modern photo transfer techniques of landscape, cityscape, and abstract images. Something that needs to be seen in person - all three featured photographers used their own hands to create transfers onto wood or metal starting with an inkjet print. Each finished piece has it’s own unique look due to variations in the substrate it is being transferred to.

In addition to the art on the walls join us on March 3 from 7-10 to get your portrait taken to be transferred onto metal for a one-of-a-kind “modern tintype”. All the prints in the show, both transfers and traditional, are made at The Painted Pixel.

APPARITIONS: Architecture That Has Disappeared From Our Cities
T. John Hughes

February 20th to  Saturday, March 4th
Opening/Closing Reception: Friday March 3rd, 5:00 to 8:00
Having gotten an early boost from inclusion in past MOP shows at Redline, APPARITIONS, has grown into a published "coffee table" book of images of the ghosts of lost buildings of various kinds in 60 cities around the county.  These ghosts are superimposed on what exists in the same locations today, providing a unique and engaging take on  now-and-then photography.  Twenty-five prints from the book will be presented, in addition to videos  that create a whole new experience of the work, as well as explain certain details of it. This photography is easily enjoyed by the general public as well as those deeply involved in architecture and historic preservation. That is why it has been picked up by about 200 public and academic libraries around the world.

Seminar: Saturday , February 25. 10:00-noon. T. John will give a presentation describing the background, anecdotes and challenges of the project . There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions and answers.
All events above are free and open to the public.  Do not hesitate to give T. John a call when you plan to come by, and, if possible , he will meet you for a brief personal tour. 303-520-3556.

Signed books will be available on a limited basis at a very reasonable price during the run of the show.

Lost in Motion

February 22 – March 19, 2017
Opens: Saturday, February 25, 5 – 8:30pm

Photographer Edward Weston said “The camera sees more than the eye, so why not make use of it?” There are many ways to visualize motion in a still photograph. Manipulating shutter speed with long exposures, especially at night, create new forms unseen in reality, or, it can completely freeze action otherwise too fast to follow. The act of panning the camera along with a moving object, or merely planting ourselves in the perfect location can all give us a tremendous feeling of movement. Since the invention of the medium, photographers have been capturing the speed of things in engaging ways. For this special Month of Photography event, show us you're Lost in Motion.

April 5th to April 30th, 2017
Opens April 7th, 6-9p

"Kaleidoscope images are fleeting, they can change quickly. A random moment in the garden or while traveling may appear; soon only to be a memory. These tessellations are those moments in time revisited. A new pattern emerges, hints of the original subtly remind us of what we saw. After a renewed consideration new patterns emerge.

Is it about the mystery of the elements that create the collage or how our mind interprets the newly formed patterns?

Collaging an image allows me to explore the potential, what was it that drew me to making that photograph? The discovery has been rewarding, the potential endless - the geometry and tiling sees to that.

My collages originally started as single print, cut and mounted. Being left-handed never allowed me the precision for accuracy. Now with digital tools I can produce a seamless collage and remain true to my photographic background.

The collage is reborn and the potential astounds me."

Loretta Young-Gautier, meticulously crafts her images, spending weeks, often incorporating as many as 10 different negatives to create a single work of art.  She often integrates Western elements into her artistic vision, producing eloquent black & white photographs that transport the viewer into a surreal, yet recognizable, world.

Each photograph is produced as a limited edition of no more than 50 archival silver gelatin or pigment inkjet prints available in two sizes of 25 each. A signed, proof-size pigment print of select images is also available in an open edition.

Former Associate Director of Denver's venerated Camera Obscura Gallery, Ms. Young-Gautier’s career also includes exhibitions in numerous solo and group shows, including the Coors Western Art Show at the National Western Stock Show; the San Diego Natural History Museum;   Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, and Byers-Evans House Museum, as well as galleries in Denver, Aspen, New York and Oklahoma City. Private, corporate and museum collections nationwide host her photographs, including Great West Life, Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Western History Department of the Denver Public Library. 

Loretta's work appears in Photo Review, Icon, Masterpiece Magazine, The Photographers Market, 303 Magazine, Passion Press, and her image, Gothic,  appeared on the cover of Twisted in Dream:  The Collected Weird Poetry of Ann K. Schwader (Hippopocampus Press, 2011).  

Most recently, Young-Gautier was included in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s group exhibition, Art to Zoo: Exploring Animal Nature, where her image, Running From the Storm, was featured on the cover of the exhibition catalogue, (Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Nazraeli Press, 2014). 

A Colorado native, Loretta currently lives and works in Denver.

Artist Statements:

Ghost Lenz: "On the streets...Denver unassumingly and transparently reveals herself as strong, vulnerable, diverse, empathetic, dangerous, resilient, beautiful.  This story plays all day, all night.  I love this City.  I live in the guts of it.  I dance with her song and she lets me sing mine."

Jody Akers: 

"Down in Denver is where I dream
seeing and feeling
Down in Denver is where I live
floating and sinking
sometimes I get lost but I always make it back home,
Down in Denver."

The basis of this exhibition will focus on the anachronistic introduction of present-day ideas and perspectives into depictions or interpretations of the past. 

Based around an investigation of the unique characteristics of small-town life, Justin Colt Beckman’s work explores and presents ideas surrounding the urban/rural dichotomy and its associated stereotypes. Essentially a city boy with country boy tendencies, he uses photo-based works, film/video, sculpture, installation, and new-media to engage in rural activities vicariously through his art-making.

Beckman received a BFA from Art Center College of design in 1998 and an MFA in sculpture from Central Washington University in 2008. He enjoys a town-and-country lifestyle with a studio in the small, unincorporated town of Thorp, WA and a home in nearby Ellensburg with his wife Monica and their son Porter, and is also a founding member of PUNCH Gallery, an artist-run space in the Pioneer Square area of Seattle.

Beckman has exhibited work both locally and nationally including Art Share in Los Angeles, CA; The Museum of Art in Ft. Lauderdale, FL; G.A.S.P. in Boston, MA; Tacoma Art Museum’s 8th Northwest Biennial; The Frye Art Museum, Seattle, WA; Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts; and a solo exhibition at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn, NY.

Gail Tremblay
Utilizing recycled film from broken down 35mm trailers, old 16mm films being thrown out by libraries as well as old student films, Gail Tremblay uses traditional weaving methods to create film baskets instead of the traditional material of ash splint and sweet grass.  Tremblay is of Iroquois and Micmac descent and learned the traditional weaving methods as a young girl.  As a professor at Evergreen State College she began using out-takes from student films to create the baskets.  Tremblay found using the recycled film allowed her to manipulate a medium that has historically been used by filmmakers to create and further stereotypes of American Indians.  She has added to this irony by choosing footage from titles that suit the artists themes as well as weaving stitches that support subject of the piece.  For example, in “Somethings Are More Serious Than Play” the artist uses pieces from a documentary film about Montana Indian Children as well as a Porcupine stitch to underscore the prickly nature of Indian—white relations.

UNEXPLORED TERRAIN
Opens Friday, March 10, 2017, 5-9 PM
First Friday Reception: April 7, 2017, 5-8 PM
On view March 10 - April 28, 2017Featuring:
Bonny Lhotka, 
Robert Buelteman,
Karalee Kuchar,
Zelda Zinn,
Emma Powell,
Sally Stockhold,
Jean Albus,

Photography is 190 years young, and there is still much unexplored terrain.  The artists featured in this exhibition for Denver’s Month in Photography raise some interesting questions about what photography can be. From the earliest experiments and methods, to post-process inclusions, to developing entirely original printing methods, these artists are directly manipulating photographic ingredients to push boundaries and create innovative, far-reaching concepts that help to define the broad range of photography today.

This exhibit is juried and curated by Bobbi Walker of Walker Fine Art and Patti Hallock of the Society for Photographic Education.

Bonny Lhotka has been mixing photography with traditional and digital media for 25 years.  Most recently, she has been working with a UV pigment printer to image photographs on aluminum.  This is an alternative photographic process that she developed and has not been used by anyone else.  Bonny will be displaying this process in a tiled installation of organic elements. 

Robert Buelteman uses neither camera, nor lens, nor digital appliances; his technique has more in common with Chinese ink brush painting and improvisational jazz than with the traditions of photography.  For him, the arduous process of imaging is a spiritual practice, and like every brush stroke or note played, each application of light cannot be rehearsed or undone. 

Karalee Kuchar uses images of motion to help us experience a duration of time that would otherwise be invisible to the unaided eye.  She lays this map of time out in a panoramic scheme to allow the viewer to understand. 

Zelda Zinn developed her newest series from thinking about the earliest experiments in light, optics, and the fixed image. By building a light source and using a blade to slice through the overlaying paper, she returns to those fundamental elements of photography, but from a post-analog perspective.  The resulting image can be best described as digital photograms. 

Emma Powell has created a photographic fairy tale about the journey of a character and the world she inhabits.  Svala’s Saga is printed using the historic palladium process coated over a digital/pigment under-print.  This hybrid technique evokes hand-colored or painted photographs. 

Sally Stockhold has created a new series, “The Kitchen Sink Chronicles”, depicting abstracted renditions of her daughter’s dirty dishes as a beautiful mess. The photographs are printed with archival color ink on watercolor paper, and then enhanced by hand with colored pencils, pastels & watercolors. 

Jean Albus’ theme of her installation and accompanying photography pieces is homage; an attempt to honor and describe the indescribable using alternative photographic processes and mixed media.  Her work references her personal experience to, and honor of, nature. 

Anne Arden McDonald has been experimenting with different ways of generating an image on photographic paper for years. Using well-known processes like the photogram, she invented other ways of producing images without using a negative, creating camera-less photographs with introduction of certain chemistries on silver gelatin paper. 

Jim Gmeimer creates enclosed studio arrangements to photograph suspended, balanced arrangements of Stargazer Lillies. The flower and leafs are photographed as multiple exposures in numbers of 20-40, and then merged together to create a final image. 

Julie Anand is intrigued by the way that satellites mark space and have become markers of time.  She photographs Cold War ruins from an elevated perspective, and then maps the specific satellites present in the sky at each site at the moment of photographing using a satellite tracking application.  She then merges the multi-layered tracings of these mappings into the appropriate photograph to give visual weight to the density of what is imperceptible miles above us. 


An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 10, 2017, 5-9 pm at the gallery in the Prado building on 11th & Cherokee Streets in Denver’s Golden Triangle Museum District. The reception is free and open to the public, and the artists will be in attendance. 

The exhibition is on view through Saturday, April 22, 2017 during regular gallery hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 
11am-5pm, and First Fridays, or by appointment. For further information call 303-355-8955, or visit: www.walkerfineart.com.

YES MA’AM PROJECTS

JAMIE KNOWLTON
WILL YOU BE COAL, OR WILL YOU BE WAVES

March 18, 2017 – April 15, 2017 – by appointment only

Opening reception – Saturday March 18, 2017 6:30 – 9:30 pm

YES MA’AM PROJECTS is pleased present Jamie Knowlton’s new body of work in their grand opening exhibition. The exhibition will feature large-scale tableaus that encourage the viewer to look more closely at the mirage of a fixed moment, of the impossibilities of a fixed state, and of photography as a renegade against linear time. The artist strives to activate the language of accumulation and of symbolic rhyming in order to reiterate the movement of every day meaning-making personified in every human. This reference point can allow consciousness to view itself in relationship to historical events, non-temporal planes, and for the artist ultimately the work provokes the question of who considers these desires and tendencies. How does one acknowledge their identity as fluid, in a reality and culture that perceives humanity as fixed? How will humans be remembered? How will you be remembered? As a fuel or as a communique? We exist as humans in boundless molecular exchange, voluminous and particle like simultaneously. The acknowledgment of this reality means to empower and embolden our presence in this world. 

Jamie Knowlton is a photographer, video, and New Media artist currently living in Portland, OR. She is a MFA candidate in Visual Studies at Pacific Northwest College of Art. Previously living in Austin, TX and Denver, CO, she is most inspired by spatial aesthetics, object theory, and the secret life of plants.

Adam McEwen: I Think I'm in Love
Jan 13 - May 28, 2017

Opening January 12, at 6:30 p.m.
5:30 p.m. Members' walkthrough with AAM Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and Director, Heidi Zuckerman and artist Adam McEwen.

As the Aspen Art Museum’s 2016–17 Gabriela and Ramiro Garza Distinguished Artist in Residence, New York–based British artist Adam McEwen is known for works that engage viewers with a dark yet poignant sense of humor. Once employed to write obituaries for the London Daily Telegraph, McEwen began producing fictional obituaries of living subjects, such as Bill Clinton, Kate Moss, and Jeff Koons. His recent sculptural works include objects such as a life-size coffin-carrier fabricated from solid graphite (Bier, 2013) and deployed airbags cast in concrete (a series from 2015). McEwen’s Aspen Art Museum exhibition marks the artist’s first solo museum show in the United States, and presents a group of works that address the blurred boundary between life and death, reality and fiction, and the everyday and the obscure.

Another Look: Obituaries & Adam McEwen with Bruce Weber
Opening Jan 20, 2017 6:00 pm
637 E. Hyman Ave

Join former obituary writer for the New York Times Bruce Weber for insight into the process of writing about peoples’ lives as a marker of their passing. He will draw connections to Adam McEwen’s exhibition, in particular the artist’s obituaries of living subjects.

Digital Frontiers: Photographic Art in the Age of Pixels

Works by Preston Newell, Gail Dohrmann, Russ Dohrmann,  , Bruce Henderson, Murth Murthy, Cary Wolfson, Virginia “Ginger" Lee Zukowski, BDA Gallery Curator Thomas Walsh.

On View January 15 - April 30, 2017
Opens Friday, March 10th, 5:30 - 8:00 PM


Boulder Digital Arts is proud to be a 2017 venue for the biennial celebration “Denver Month of Photography. 

While some photorealistic paintings are exceptionally fine art, far from all great paintings are photorealisms. Likewise, far from every great photograph is a pure depiction of what stood before the camera. Digital imagery provides a host of opportunities that were not previously available to photographers. With software post-processing, tools are now available for transforming straightforward depictions into as large a range of expressions as those historically available to painters. Boulder Digital Arts’ Denver Month of Photography exhibit, “Digital Frontiers: Photographic Art in the Age of Pixels,” presents the work of 8 artists, each with their own vision and techniques for taking photography into this exceptional realm.

Thomas Walsh, Ph.D., curator at Boulder Digital Arts, began publishing his photographs in nationally and internationally circulated magazines more than 20 years ago, after he decided to add travel writing and photography to his work as a technical and business writer. Three years ago, he decided to take his photography full time and now specializes in portraiture and high end real estate imagery as well as fine art photography.

Gail Dohrmann has been a member of Flatirons Photo Club for a number of years and currently leads the club’s growing iPhoneography group. She specializes in infrared photography and in utilizing a number of apps to morph straightforward photographs into painterly representations that profoundly express their subjects’ beauty.

Russ Dohrmann, now passed, was a member of Flatirons Photo Club for several decades and significantly contributed to the growth of Boulder County’s exceptional photographic community. In addition to representational compositions, Russ delved deeply into the use of software to create inspirational, painterly styled works.

Bruce Henderson is an award-winning photographer who has worked as a photographer, reporter, designer and editor for numerous newspapers. He was an associate professor of journalism at the University of Colorado and also served as director of communications for a technology, arts and media institute at CU. He has a master’s degree in journalism photography from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Murth Murthy has taught Photoshop classes at Front Range Community College and general photography at the Longmont Senior Center. He currently teaches Photoshop classes at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. While Murth commands a range of photographic styles and techniques, his work on display at Boulder Digital Arts’ Denver Month of Photography exemplifies the art he creates by applying paint to prints of his photographs.

Preston Newell began to use Canon and Minolta SLR cameras in college, and began to use DSLR Nikon cameras soon after they became available. Since his retirement from the IT worlds of Fiat, Texaco and Boeing, he has pursued his photography hobby, and won 1st & 2nd place awards at the Colorado State Fair.

Cary Wolfson has been an officer of the Flatirons Photo Club since 2009. His work has won dozens of awards in club and juried competitions and has appeared in various juried shows, along with several solo shows, and online at http://caryeb79.myportfolio.com/projects. His most recent focus has been iPhoneography, employing non-traditional effects to photos captured and processed with smart phones and tablets.

Virginia “Ginger" Lee Zukowski entered the world of art through training in modern dance (University of Illinois, Champaign). That experience provided a vital framework for her more recent venture into the visual arts. Ginger strives to use the key elements of space, light, color, patterns and movement to highlight the unexpected within the ordinary.


BDA empowers creatives and entrepreneurs with classes & workshops that are focused on practical skills and taught by industry professionals. For over 12 years, BDA has been a community-powered resource organization for people who create things. Whether you work in film, photography, design, technology or business, we seek to empower your creative process with membership, resources, education, events, community and collaboration

Artifacts & Other Errors of Perception
Mathias Kessler
January 26–May 29, 2017 

Mathias Kessler unearths the power of image and artifact to preserve truth and define history. A series of re-imagined fossils and scenic impressions excavated from art history, scientific inquiry, and travel invite visitors to explore a strange show-and-tell of artistic findings and creations. The artist encourages guests to move between reality and fantasy, blurring their ability to distinguish between the two. 

Kessler’s close look at the reality of nature demonstrates how an idea can supersede a lived reality. Through photography, installation, sculpture, and performance, he constructs environments, often theatrical and dramatic, to explore how far humanity separates itself from a tangible experience of the natural world, choosing instead a more idealized imitation.

Through photography, installation, sculpture, and performance, Kessler constructs theatrical environments to explore how far humanity separates itself from a tangible experience, choosing instead a more idealized imitation. He also investigates the power of objects to leave a permanent record of our existence. “The objects within the exhibition will likely outlive us and carry their stories into another time and culture,” said Kessler. The objects on view, both manmade and extracted from nature, have been shaped to varying degrees by the artist.

In Cultural Cul-de-sac (2017), an installation in the museum’s West Gallery, Kessler maps out intersections of Boulder’s natural and cultural ecosystems, inviting visitors to explore and participate in a site-specific reflection of the local landscapes. A counter, a bar, tables, and chairs are intended to mimic the topographical geometry on the wall and define a space within the gallery for social gathering. Stocked with beer, the fridge is the artist’s invitation for visitors to linger and engage in discussion. “The beer facilitates camaraderie and intellectual exchange, and in the process, a social sculpture is made,” said Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art Curator Mardee Goff. Within the Cultural Cul-de-sac, beer will be offered during Thursday night events where members of the community produce programs that reflect Boulder’s culture.

Impossible Humans: The International Collection

March 3-April 9, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, March 10, 2017 5:00-7:00pm 

«Labels are for cans, not people» - Andy Warhol Impossible Humans is a new kind of photographic event. The main goal of the Impossible Humans project is to focus on the single person in order to enhance uniqueness and singularity, harmoniously placing the subject in her/his own environment, following the key component of the mindset that carried the European culture from the Middle Ages to Renaissance blossoming. In short, the idea is to portray individuals detached from mass standards, cataloguing and divisions created by social, cultural and religious identities. To place the single person in a perfectly multi-ethnic and multi-cultural environment. Thus, Impossible Humans revolves around the portraiture of people; their uniqueness and personalities, enhancing our awareness of being each and all humans in every respect, each with our own with flaws, passions, emotions and dreams. Impossible Humans: The International Collection will be shown on a video monitor on the entrance wall to McMahon Gallery in the Dairy Arts Center. ©Impossible Humans is a project and photographic action by the New Era Museum ideated and curated by Andrea Bigiarini"

Works by Michelle Robinson

Opens Friday, March 10, 2017 5:00-7:00pm
Featuring artist talks
On view March 3-April 9, 2017
Held at MacMillan Family Lobby and Hand-Rudy Galleries. 

Michelle Robinson (Los Angeles, CA) is interested in bringing intimacy and animation to forms that are ubiquitous but often invisible or ignored. Much of her work has been focused on the heavily altered Los Angeles River and the structures that surround it. The river takes many forms as it passes through the city, from concrete wastelands to partially natural wilderness. Power lines and telephone poles have replaced trees as the dominant vertical element in the landscape; freeways and bridges cross its 42-mile length. There is a terrible beauty in that tension between the natural and the man-made, and it is that relationship that Michelle explores in her imagery.

Michelle has been involved in methodical, process oriented art forms for some time as she likes seeing the evidence of the hand in the final work and enjoys taking advantage of 'happy accidents' along the way. She is deeply interested in texture, age, wear, and evidence of the passing of time, and tries to create images that, while inspired by real places, also exist outside of that context and occupy something closer to a dream, or a memory. Her works incorporate film photography and mixed media.

Show: Contemporary Portraiture - The Post-Selfie Gaze
Artists: Jon Huck, George P. Perez, Samantha Skinner

March 4th, 2017 – April 28th, 2017
Opening Reception: March 4th, 2017
7pm - 9pm (with performance by musical guests Xenon Superstar)

Contemporary Portraiture explores the landscape of the present-day portrait. Over the past 500 years, our culture has changed the way we look at ourselves. Historically, portraits were used to depict an idealistic version of an individual and put on public display in a home. Today, the most omnipresent portraits lie within the palm of your hand: the selfie is the raw version of a portrait. This collection of work is a reflection of the ‘normcore’ and the commonality of a casual portrait.

The stripped-down portrait is a shared theme in the works of contemporary portrait artists Samantha Skinner, Jon Huck, and George P. Perez. The utilization of negative space allows the viewers’ eye to focus on the intricate lines of Skinner’s carefully detailed graphite drawings, while the hazy features of Huck’s watercolor characters tease the viewer to construct the personality of each depicted character. The classic style of portrait photographs that Perez has collected from across time and place are reconstructed to mirror the commodification of contemporary photography. 
The simple complexity of these works echo the intricate details of a selfie - deceivingly, we’re all the same, and are frequently passed by with a single swipe. Look closer, and find there are more detailed parts of the whole to explore.

Todd Edward Herman

When I Stop Looking: 
short films and small prints 

Opening reception:
Saturday, March 25th, 2017
7 - 10pm 

March 25 to April 30, 2017
by appointment

Seidel City
3205 Longhorn Rd
Boulder, CO 80302
303-591-1553
www.seidelcity.com

Todd Edward Herman's haunting imagery suggests mysteriously entwined narratives, drawing no clear lines between fiction and fact. For his first solo show in Boulder, Colorado, Herman utilizes photography, videography and painting as departure points for thirty exquisitely printed limited edition prints. Dealing with themes of the body and transience, representational taboos, spectatorship and complicity, his work looks to a rare beauty, making no claims to journalistic inquiry. 

Among the selected films screening at Seidel City will be Herman's award winning short film Cabinet, a visceral and poetic documentary on death, mourning and life beginning anew. Also screening will be Herman's When I Stop Looking, a film that looks beyond the imprint of appearances, invoking the intensely private worlds of those portrayed, each of whom lives with significant facial and cranial conditions; a vivid affirmation of existence comes forward, before anything else. 

Todd Edward Herman has been the recipient of many awards for his work including the San Francisco International Film Festival's New Vision Award, the Art Council of Northern Ireland's Artist in Residence Award, Grants from the San Francisco Film Arts Foundation, a Western States Regional Media Arts Fellowship, Taipei Artist Village Residency, and the San Francisco Art Commission's Emerging Curator Award. He has presented his work at such venues as the International Film Festival Rotterdam, San Francisco International Film Festival, Southbank Centre, Anthology Film Archives, San Francisco Cinematheque, and Pacific Film Archives.

"At their best artists can question habits of understanding, looking, and story telling, thereby investigating the ways personal and historical forms are constructed rather than fixed. For me, this means generating work that examines how images compose, enforce, or undermine -- rather than simply reflect -- history, dominant values, identity, and authorship."
--T.E.H.


Seidel City is new studio workspace, gallery ,theater and performance venue in North Boulder ( NoBo ). Owned and operated by Terry Seidel and Ann Helke.

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

“United Untied”

January 20 - March 25
Artist talk and Reception March 17th  6-8 pm
North Gallery 

United Untied (2010-2016) is the most recent form of my ongoing research project, The Poetics of Twinship. Initially my curiosity was driven by science: its capacity to provide evidence was soothing. My first exploration of this work, Twice Upon A Time (2008-2010), shows my obsessive compulsion to prove the validity of my questions. Although science continues to inform my art, it is no longer my central mode of inquiry. I am less concerned now about proof and more curious about the act of questioning itself. What is it like to be a twin? I unfolded the spaces surrounding Question and Answer by opening my process to countless contributors, my two favorites: chance and synchronicity. Perhaps this is because these two ideas are at the root of all identical twins’ existence: one egg spontaneously split into two."

"I reject the language used to show trends, its statistical models and their projections. But even though their materialistic look, I perceive a kind of aesthetic behind the graphs and their changing geometry. Mountains and mathematical graphs: landscapes similar in shape, but opposite in essence. Behind the ephemeral financial status of companies or countries and the changes in environmental and social trends, lays the serene presence of perennial, undulated mountains that call me to inner peace and reflection."

“When We Played”
Emily T. Nelson
March 3 - March 31, 2017
Opening reception Saturday, March 4th, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Emily Nelson uses pinhole photography and other alternative processes to explore childhood memories and the magic of the playgrounds where we played. Nelson, a Greeley native, graduated from the School of Art and Design at the University of Northern Colorado. Her challenge was to find the locations that still had remnants from the old playgrounds. The small towns with the old slides and the tire swings are hard to find but there are a few out there. Nelson says, “For me, the images immediately bring up memories of a simpler time. Remember the days when our world was that playground down the street and so much magic that could take place in one single day? A world that was ours before social media and electronics took over. Remember that world? A world in which we were inspired to create, imagine, and solve mysteries. With everything that is happening right now in this crazy world, I want to remember the simplicity and innocence of life during those younger years.”

George P Perez

A Lack Of

March 10th to April 28th, 2017
Opens March 10th, 6-9pm
Food and drink provided.

April 6th Artist Talk - 6pm-9-pm

A Lack Of explores and examines photographs with what Susan Stewart calls "a potential commodity, taking place within the abstract and infinite cycle of exchange". George P. Perez presents his entire collection of collected photographs ranging from the 1930’s to circa 1970’s from various locations in the States, and foreign countries like Turkey. A Lack Of presents a personal venture of filling a void, to create a mold of stimulating memories and experiences embedded in a displacement of photographs. 
 
George P. Perez was b. OCT 7 1987, received a BFA (Cum Laude) in 2014 from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and currently resides in Denver, CO. Perez is an artist whose work explores mundane situations and scenarios that he interacts with on a day-to-day basis. Perez’s work can often be seen as a humorous but harsh narrative that reflects and critiques current values in today’s modern society, presenting another perception of banal circumstances. His practice primarily utilizes photography as a means of visual foundation, which at times presents interdisciplinary work that dives into a social practice.
 
Perez has shown up and down the Front Range of Colorado and outside of the state that have included: (Un)Clothed, Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, CO, 2013;  Archetype Drift: New Methods of Photography Making, Johalla Projects, Chicago, IL, 2013; Cultural Citizen: The Immigrant and the Stranger, The Bridge Gallery, Littleton, CO, 2014; BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS, GOCA121, Colorado Springs, CO, 2015; Monumental: RedLine’s Annual Resident Artist Exhibition, Redline Gallery, Denver, CO, 2016 ; and Visitation, grayDuck Gallery, Austin, TX, 2016.

Photography Unsettled  
A national juried group exhibit showcasing contemporary artists’ unconventional uses of photography 

March 10 - April 28
Opens March 10, 6-9 pm
Night on the Town Open House: April 14, 6-9 pm
Closing Reception, Gallery Talk by Juror Kia Neill, and Prizes Awarded: April 28, 6-8 pm

Featured artists include: 
John Bonath, Bob Campagna, Terrence Decker, Kelly Dietrick, David Fodel, Jessica Glover, Scott Hays, Patricia Howard, Katie Kalkstein, Emily Knight, Kerry Kolenut, Stephen Marc, Dan McCormack, Gordon Middleton, Allen Morris, Kia Neill, Josh Palmeri, Michael Pointer, Beverly Poppe, Abbie R Powers & Denny Haskew, Russ Rowland, and Kate Shannon

In conjunction with Month of Photography Denver, Photography Unsettled showcases the wide range in contemporary artists’ practices which feature photography in some way, as well as the many mediums of art which are fusing with photography so that it belongs less and less to a specific medium or category. Mixed media works, alternative processes, and far-reaching concepts are all represented within the exhibition.  Artworks Loveland is one of over 100 galleries participating in Month of Photography Denver 2017. 

Traditional photography practices are revisited in the form of altered tintypes, while some photographers took a more modern direction by transforming their photos digitally. Other artists chose to physically manipulate their surfaces by drawing directly on them or employing the use of acrylic or other media to give the surface new life. These unconventional approaches to an ever-changing medium are helping to keep the medium of photography contemporary.  

This national juried group exhibit features 22 artists from ten states, each with a unique interpretation of the theme. Featured artists explored the term “unsettled” through their technique as well as concept. Some artists feel that their work is “unsettled” because of its political nature, the feeling that the work evokes in the viewer, or the expression of an unsettling feeling in the artist’s own personal life.

About the Juror: 
Kia Neill is a multidiscipline artist working in mixed media drawing, painting, photography and sculpture. Neill has lived and worked in a number of cities throughout the U.S. as a professional artist doing public and private commissions, exhibitions, lectures, jurying and teaching college and continuing education for 15 years. 

Neill is native to Chicago Illinois, received her MFA from The University of California, San Diego, and relocated to Denver CO in 2014 from Houston Texas, where she was Full-time Faculty of 7 years at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston Glassell School of Art.  Neill currently teaches at the University of Denver School of Art and Art History, and in the Breckenridge Arts District. She will be a Resident Artist at The Children’s Museum of Denver January - March 2017, engaging the public and creating an artwork for the museum’s permanent collection.

New Mexico Museum Of Art

Small Wonders Celebrates Small Photographs
On view October 7 - March 12, 2017 

Susan R Goldstein, David Janesko, Jenna Kuiper, Jan Pietrzak, Liz Stekeete, and Laurie Tümer.

The New Mexico Museum of Art is making a big deal about little pictures! Opening with a free public reception on Friday evening, October 7, Small Wonders is a surprising selection of small contemporary photographic work that invites visitors to revel in the pleasures of the miniscule. "The scale of these works of art draws viewers closer, quietly commanding more attention and closer looking than large photographs," said exhibition curator Katherine Ware. "In some of the pictures, the small size alludes to the precious and somewhat secretive quality of a special snapshot or keepsake. And while the smallness of some pieces makes them approachable, it sometimes concentrates their intensity into a concise form, like a thorn." Offering context for the contemporary work are several examples of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century photographs that illustrate the small scale of early photography and its use as source material for some of the artists in the exhibition.

Susan Goldstein, based in Denver, uses found photographs as the basis for her collages, some of which are humorous and others unsettling. Liz Stekeete of San Francisco also relies on photographs made by others, then cuts, rephotographs, and sews them into startling compositions. Española artist Laurie Tümer began her career by cutting photographic prints into spirals and arrows, joining them with paint to invent small scenes, each about 2 x 2 inches in size. Jan Pietrzak, based in Santa Fe, uses a camera to create his images, working in the darkroom to develop his exquisite platinum prints that measure a diminutive 2 1⁄4 x 2 1⁄4 inches each.
Other small pictures in the show are made of forms generated solely by the artists. Santa Fe artist Jenna Kuiper has invented a distinctive visual vocabulary for her charming yet cryptic photograms (photographs made without a camera), presented here in an installation by the artist. Taking cameraless photography even further, Houston-based David Janesko creates his images using a laser to draw on light-sensitive paper, arranging the works into a constellation on the wall.
Inspired by the work on view, visitors are invited to create their own photomontages (a mixture of elements made into a single composition by photographing them) in the gallery using a variety of scrap images and their imaginations.

Obscura Gallery

Obscura Gallery, LLC is pleased to announce our new gallery based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Obscura Gallery, named after the original Camera Obscura, is founded on our passion for photography which is deeply rooted in the history of the medium. Obscura Gallery encourages the ways in which contemporary artists are using photography to create unique additions to the history of photography which began nearly 200 years ago.

The gallery was conceived by Owner and Director Jennifer Schlesinger. A photography dealer and artist herself, Jennifer brings to Obscura Gallery the experience of being the Director of VERVE Gallery of Photography in Santa Fe, New Mexico for eleven years. Jennifer's career experience has led to her development of long term relationships with artists, clients, and collectors as well as the local, national and international photographic community.

The artists represented at Obscura Gallery are each representing photography in a new, unique way, sometimes taking from or adding to many of the 19th and 20th century photographic processes that the medium was founded on. Each artist represented at Obscura Gallery offer a hand-crafted, thoughtful approach to their work.

In addition to offering for sale the artwork by Obscura Gallery's stable of artists and gallery inventory, we also offer collection building, consulting and advising, and can assist in many facets of photographic collection, de-accession, and research.
