RedLine - MoP Mark Osterman Lecture

RedLine Contemporary Art Center

Lecture

Mark Osterman, Photographic Process Historian and renowned photographic educator from the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York

Thursday, March 28, 2017 - 6:30PM ( doors open)   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.

Downtown Aurora Visual Arts - DAVA Youth Show Opening

DAVA (Downtown Aurora Visual Arts)

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

Month of Photography Lecture Series at the DAM: Benjamin Rasmussen

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 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.

Lynn Heitler Retrospective

Opening March 17, 6 - 10pm
Opening with the Artist March 31, 3 - 8pm

March 17 - May 15, 2017

Lynn Heitler is a Denver-based artist with a national presence.  The works in this retrospective show are primarily monotypes, etchings and monoprints.  Lynn has worked with four master printers located in Colorado and New Mexico for over 30 years.  She has exhibited in 15 galleries in the U.S.

Lynn majored in Art at the University of California, Berkeley, and studied art at the Corcoran Museum School in Washington D.C., and she studied calligraphy at the Cambridge Adult Education school in Massachusetts.  Her prints go through a press for as many as six passes. In a number of the works on paper, there is a base of calligraphy and other imagery, plus inks and chine-collé materials which are layered to give depth and richness to each unique work of art.  Robert Rauschenberg had a major influence on her work.


Ten years ago Lynn Co-founded LYNNEL Art to Form, a company which prints her art work on glass, acrylic and fabric for commercial and residential projects throughout the country.  The same layering of imagery so prevalent in the works on paper is utilized in customizable pieces produced by LYNNEL.

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.”

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.  Additional hours will also include a reception on First Friday, February 5, 2016 6-9pm.  Gallery hours are by appointment info@EvanAnderman.com.

"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.

For more than 35 years, Bill Starr has shared his passion by photographically capturing movement in dance, theater, and performance art – and throughout Colorado's indie/electronic/folk music scenes. The subject of his work is informed and influenced by his lifelong experience of living with acute rheumatoid arthritis. His photographs harness both the raw and elegant aspects of the human body in motion. He is well known for recording the likenesses of many area artists and students over the span of his career.

Opens First Friday April 7, 5:00- 7:30 PM
Special First Friday Art Parties on May 1st, 5-7:30PM
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.

Valkarie Gallery - Bob Coller Jewett - Opening

Bob Coller Jewett

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

As part of Denver’s Month of Photography, Valkarie Gallery will be showcasing the photography of Bob Coller Jewett in the southern gallery for the month of April.
 
"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."

In May of 2007, Ken Hamel started DenverArts.org as an online resource with complete information on what was happening on the local Denver art scene. The idea was one destination on the web with all of the dates and times for current gallery exhibits and openings, along with capsule reviews and photos of the art and artists.
 
Over the decade that followed, Ken has documented thousands of exhibitions and amassed a collection of several thousand photographs of Denver artists. With the curatorial assistance of Denver photographer Anthony Camera (well known for photographing local arts personalities as part of his work with Westword), Ken will be exhibiting 40 of the best portraits taken over the years. In addition, Ken and Anthony will be putting together a massive grid containing hundreds of 6x4 photographs documenting the Denver art scene over the last 10 years.

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.

Curtis Arts Center Richard Peterson Opening

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.

Storm Warning provides a platform for collaboration, both on campus and throughout the wider community for engagement with some of the most important issues facing us today.

The exhibition is presented in conjunction with Denver’s Month of Photography, featuring photographs by J. Henry Fair and Chris Jordan, both revered for their documentary photography of the abject beauty of the human impact on climate change. Chris Jordan’s Drowned Laysan Albatross #2 image serves as the logo for the exhibition. He will also display a digital projection of the contents of a camel stomach, Gastrolith, a digital media recreation of an installation project created in 2016. J. Henry Fair exhibits large format color photographs of his Industrial Scars project, recently released as a publication.

Artworks Loveland - Photography Unsettled - Reception

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.

"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."

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.  Show us what you’ve seen and what you have to say.
Tell us about your Apps and filters.  Denver celebrates Month of
Photography biannually.  There will be photography exhibits city-wide
with workshops and seminars.  Be part of this exciting month with
Spark Gallery and “LOOK APP THIS!”

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.”

Seidel City Films and Opening

SEIDEL CITY

When I Stop Looking: 
short films and small prints
by Todd Edward Herman

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

March 25 to April 30, 2017
by appointment

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."

LEON Gallery - SKINS - Artist Talk with Tya Anthony

SKINS
Tya Anthony

March 11 - April 8th, 2017
Opens Saturday, March 11, 7-11 pm
Artist Lecture with Tya Anthony, March 25, 2-4 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.

Metropolis Coffee Highlands - Leah Diament "Conventionally Unique"

Leah Diament
"Conventionally Unique"

March 1st ongoing
Opens March 24th 7-10pm

My artwork is an attempt to shift the perspective of the audience from the quick paced lives that many of us lead to a “smell the roses” type of life that we actually need.  People, places, and things often become grey in our daily visual, we no longer see the beauty around us as we stick to the grind of life. As I am always trying to break out of that thought pattern myself I create images to help me and hopefully others see life in a brighter light.

In order to create these images I use the environment I’m in. I use available lighting, backgrounds, and people for all of my photography.  I love to explore concepts, people, and techniques through my photography and have a tendency to be sporadic in actual methodology because of this.

Month of Photography Lecture Series at the DAM: Gary Emrich

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 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.

Denver Art Museum Lecture - Wendy Red Star - Decolonizing Photography

Wendy Red Star: Decolonizing Photography

Wednesday, March 22, 6:30–8 pm
Lecture begins at 7 pm
North Building, Lower Level

Historical photography of Native people is widespread and many of these images become iconic and appropriated as part of American popular culture. But what is missing from our understanding of these photographs?

In this talk, artist Wendy Red Star will discuss the evolution of her Crow history project, and its relation to the documentation of the 1873 and 1880 Crow delegations, and representations of Crow Chiefs. Through her artistic intervention and annotation, her presentation will also address issues of identity, representation, and reclamation, as well as the relationships of this project to contemporary Native America.

Artist Wendy Red Star works across disciplines to explore the intersections of Native American ideologies and colonialist structures, both historically and in contemporary society. Raised on the Apsáalooke (Crow) reservation in Montana, Red Star’s work is informed both by her cultural heritage and her engagement with many forms of creative expression, including photography, sculpture, video, fiber arts, and performance.

An avid researcher of archives and historical narratives, Red Star seeks to incorporate and recast her research, offering new and unexpected perspectives in work that is at once inquisitive, witty, and unsettling. Intergenerational collaborative work is integral to her practice, along with creating a forum for the expression of Native women’s voices in contemporary art.

Tickets can be purchased online and at the door (on a space available basis).

YES MA’AM PROJECTS Opening

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.

www.yesmaamprojects.com
Yes Ma’am Projects is a new Denver gallery whose aims and goals are not set just yet. Beginning in 2013 Yes Ma’am Projects started an independent no strings attached artist grant for Colorado artists and has given away $3000 to date. Yes Ma’am projects will mount shows with the intentions as the grant.

HELIKON - "Process" Group Show - De/constructing landscape - Opening

‘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

Artists on View: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. 

Opening reception, Saturday, March 18 (6-10pm);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.

Helikon Gallery & Studios is a multifaceted arts community located in Denver’s River North (RiNo) Art District. Opened in October 2013, Helikon has earned a reputation as a high level exhibition space for contemporary Illustrative Arts, ranging from portraiture, illustration, and  gure work to imaginative and narrative art from around the United States. The building is a repurposed warehouse comprised of two art galleries, 14 artists’ studios, a coffee bar & retail space, and a classroom space.

PlatteForum- Pictorial Vexillography, Concerns in Different Regularities- George P. Perez and ArtLab Opening

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

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.

Lynn Heitler is a Denver-based artist with a national presence.  The works in this retrospective show are primarily monotypes, etchings and monoprints.  Lynn has worked with four master printers located in Colorado and New Mexico for over 30 years.  She has exhibited in 15 galleries in the U.S.

Lynn majored in Art at the University of California, Berkeley, and studied art at the Corcoran Museum School in Washington D.C., and she studied calligraphy at the Cambridge Adult Education school in Massachusetts.  Her prints go through a press for as many as six passes. In a number of the works on paper, there is a base of calligraphy and other imagery, plus inks and chine-collé materials which are layered to give depth and richness to each unique work of art.  Robert Rauschenberg had a major influence on her work.


Ten years ago Lynn Co-founded LYNNEL Art to Form, a company which prints her art work on glass, acrylic and fabric for commercial and residential projects throughout the country.  The same layering of imagery so prevalent in the works on paper is utilized in customizable pieces produced by LYNNEL.

The Center For Fine Art Photography - Singular/ Signature - United Untied - Artist Talk and Reception - Fort Collins

Michele Wysocki
“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."

"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.
