On view in the main gallery from March 18 - April 22, 2017

‘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.
