Access Gallery

Roadside Attractions
Josiah Lopez, Ted Tahquechi, Andrea Moore

March 1 - April 5, 2019

First Friday, March 1, 5-9pm
Meet the Artist & Community Respite, March 22, 5-9pm
First Friday Closing, April 5, 5-9pm

Spring brings up visions of road trips and the desire to travel. For this year's Month of Photography Exhibit, we invited three of our favorite artists to document the theme of Roadside Attractions. Our teaching artist, Josiah Lopez, is best known for his large-scale murals around the Denver metro area, but we decided to focus on his more intimate black and white photos of his movements around the country. Ted Tahquechi is an artist who is blind and primarily known for his work around the landscape of the body, but this go round, Ted focused his lens on his budding relationship with his first seeing eye dog. Lastly, in the Studio Gallery, we feature one of our favorite partners and collaborators - The Wayfairing Band and photos of its director Andrea Moore. This amazing group takes inclusive trips around the world introducing the love of travel to people with disabilities. These snapshots are very much from the road and feature a new look at those roadside attractions we tend to drive by.

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.

EDGE Gallery - Susan Goldstein and a Community Open Exhibition  - Opening

Susan Goldstein

UNDERCURRENTS: Fault Lines

March 22 – April 7, 2019

Opening Friday, March 22, 6-10pm

Goldstein will be present on Friday, March 29, 6-10pm

The photographs in UNDERCURRENTS have been described as “taking the temperature” of the United States.

Traveling by car and looking for images is a bit like eavesdropping on a conversation or looking through a stranger’s window. Without staying in a place for a period of time it is impossible to gain a deep understanding of the issues facing a community. However, it is possible to document visual clues that offer insight about the state of a place, the concerns of the residents and the hopes and sometimes failed dreams of those inhabitants. One universal theme encountered in every state is patriotism, expressed in different ways, by the use of red, white and blue.

Goldstein’s art practice includes a history of addressing political issues through images and installation. Many of the photographs in UNDERCURRENTS are inherently political. This is not an exhibit about the current President and administration, but many of the images tell part of the story of how the country has become so fractured and divided. Ironically the subjects in some of the photographs act both to unify as well as divide depending upon the viewer’s perspective.

Community Open Exhibition
March 22 – April 7, 2019
Opening Friday, March 22, 6-10p

Clifford Hawkes

March 4 - March 30, 2019
Opens March 22, 6-9:30pm

Clifford Hawkes, photographer, will be the featured artist for the month of March at the Artists on Santa Fe Gallery.

I will never forget the first time, in high school biology class, staring through the lens of a microscope, I saw the fantastic world that exists in a tiny drop of pond water. Ever since that day, I have been fascinated and mesmerized by water. It forever changed how I feel and approach the natural world. When I photograph nature and especially water, I am transported into a place of contemplation and peace.

“Snap Portraits!” After many years meticulously photographing architecture, T. John has returned to his early love of photographing friends. Like snapshots, they are fast, use the existing environment, and have no significant post production adjustment. Like portraits they have more attention to lighting, background and simplification.

David B. Smith Gallery - Mikayla Whitmore - Magic Circle Opening

David B. Smith Gallery

Mikayla Whitmore
Magic Circle

March 29 - May 4, 2019

Opening March 29, 6-8p

David B. Smith Gallery is proud to present Magic Circle, a solo exhibition by Las Vegas-based photographer Mikayla Whitmore. Presented in the gallery's project room, Magic Circle taps into the lore of desert landscapes mingled with the art historical symbolism of the mirror. Functioning as both a tool of inward reflection and vehicle for story-telling, Whitmore's carefully placed mirrors echo untold narratives hidden in the desert sands.

Mikayla Whitmore’s main interest focuses on photography and installation – in particular, the overlap between both fields, specifically the phantom surrealism of the photographic image to explore the elusiveness of place, self-awareness, and memory. Her work explores the potential of the photographic medium and deconstructing the built-up facades she encounters in daily life. Selected exhibitions include Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art (NV), Torrence Art Museum (CA), and Humble Arts Foundation (NY). She currently lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.

David B. Smith Gallery is committed to presenting intelligent and culturally relevant exhibitions in its Denver location, featuring the region’s most important emerging talent alongside internationally recognized artists. The gallery also maintains an active publishing division, which produces exhibition catalogues and editions.

Sangre de Cristo Center - Ron Johnson - Opening

Ron Johnson
Once Upon A Time Out West


April 5 - May 5, 2019
Opens April 5, 5-7pm

After working for 37 years as an architectural photographer, Ron returned to what first brought him to photography. Black and white fine art images – primarily landscape and elements found in the landscape. Today, he uses a digital camera and computer much as he once used a 4x5 camera and darkroom. Each image is carefully composed and printed. Images are drawn from years of travel, a widely varied history of work, and an appreciation of all forms of music, art, and literature.

These images are not meant to convey any commentary on the social, cultural or political state of the world in which we live, nor are they about the process used to create them. They are about light and form, and seeing, not merely looking at the world around us. As artists, we are compelled to share parts of our lives through the images we create. Some of our efforts may end up lost or forgotten. A few may strike a chord in others. Perhaps we all, in one way or another, want to ask the world, ‘Do you see and hear the things I do? Am I alone?’

TIME: Biannual UCCS Visual Art Faculty Exhibition celebrates and investigates the work of contemporary artists serving as educators at UCCS. GOCA has championed conceptually innovative projects in its exhibition spaces for the past 37 years, inviting artists from this region and beyond to manifest their visions in collaboration with our students, faculty and staff. For this exhibition, we invited our faculty to respond to a theme that is connected to the biannual POLLINATE festival the exhibition is part of – TIME.

Time is both a physical dimension of our universe and and a marker of change. Beyond the ticking of seconds in a minute, minutes in an hour and beyond, time is also the accumulation of history, the forward march of ever-faster connections through contemporary technologies, and the incremental tedium of everyday experience. Contemporary art and artists have responded to time not as a unitary subject or theme, but in a multi-faceted way that’s as diverse as contemporary art itself.

Works in this exhibition span a broad range of media and concepts – painting, drawing, sculpture, sound installation, kinetic works, time-based media and performative happenings are all represented. The artists were invited to exhibit new or recent work connecting to overarching theme. It is an honor to give platform to the work of our artist faculty at UCCS – I invite you to connect with the work in our spaces this spring at our Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery of Contemporary Art site, in the Ent Center for the Arts.

STUDIO ALTIERI - Cyanotype Workshop

Deconstruction
March 14 - April 14, 2019

Sharifa Moore, Jason Bye, Leah Diament, Katherine Phenna, Joe Addison, Tania Kaaz, Jody Akers, Bill Westheimer, Leah Diament, Jason Bye, Sharifa Moore, and Gary Reed present

Deconstruction, an exhibition of works by 8 alternative process photographers dismantling traditional and modern modes of photography in the first official exhibit at Altieri Studios.

April 7, 11am-3pm
Cyanotype Workshop

A cyanotype is a historic photographic process invented in 1842. Rather than utilizing silver, this method employs a combination of iron salts, and is one of the most stable and archival processes in photography. Cyanotype images are characterized by their Prussian blue color.

In this workshop, you will create your own cyanotypes, using either a contact printing method, or a photogram, using flat objects you bring to class.

Paper will be coated in advance, so you need bring only your film negative and photogram objects. We will teach you how to lay out, expose, and develop your images. At the end of the workshop, you will bring home 5 4x5 images.

** If you need assistance printing a photograph negative, arrangements may be made in advance.

This workshop will be taught by Sharifa Moore, part of the 2019 graduating class, at CU Denver. Sharifa received a EUReCA fellowship to conduct extensive research on the cyanotype process in the fall of 2018.

The Painted Pixel - Modern Pictorialism - Opening

Modern Pictorialism
David Jepsen, Chris Kates, and Joshua Hicks
April 2 - April 30, 2019
Opening April 19, 7:30-10pm

Long before digital photo manipulation there was a movement in the world of photography inspired by the idea of pushing photography further into the realm of art. The goal was to create an emotionally inspired image rather than just recording a scene true to life. Inspired by this we decided to make an exhibition using one of the techniques used in this movement: Gumoil Printing. It’s "modern" because we utilized digital printing to create our positives to be used in the traditional contact print method. But after that the rest is done as it was back in the late 1800’s.

David Maisel
Atlas

March 21 - May 4, 2019
Opens March 21, 6-8pm

In conjunction with Denver’s Month of Photography, Robischon Gallery is pleased to present three concurrent solo exhibitions featuring David Maisel (CA), Kevin O’Connell (CO) and James Benning (CA). The artists’ attention toward both earth and sky, capture divergent aspects of their subjects - from Maisel’s bold, vertiginous, aerial overviews of industrially-altered landscapes, to O’Connell’s vast open fields, awaiting life-sustaining rain and the clouds that deliver it, to Benning’s seasonally changing views of backroads, smaller interstates and lonely highways through a lens of an unrelenting traveler of the contemporary open road.

From epic heights, the new and recent photographs exhibited in “Atlas” by acclaimed artist David Maisel, address globally shared cultural concerns as revealed in the five series on view; “Desolation Desert,” “The Lake Project,” “American Mine,” “Terminal Mirage” and “The Mining Project.” Focusing on sites primarily located in the United States, along with those most recently captured in South America, the complex and questionable politics of radically human-altered environments are unavoidably illuminated as Maisel presents the breathtaking drama of terrain which is designated as off-limits, quarantined or otherwise hidden from view. Noted artist Kevin O’Connell’s ongoing investigations of the northern and eastern plains of Colorado and Wyoming, offer subtle observations where the impact of humankind may be less apparent, as the artist calls into question the notion of discarded landscapes as well as the region’s precious, but diminishing rainfall. O’Connell’s exhibition title, “Petrichor,” refers to the recognizably pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain as it hits the soil after a long period of dry weather, as well as referencing the anticipation of such vitally important, watery relief. James Benning, legendary in the field of experimental filmmaking, offers “small roads,” a round trip journey from California to Louisiana, utilizing routes not typically highlighted or shown on interstate highway maps. Benning’s on-going contemplative investigation of the relationship between humankind and nature, quietly directs the viewers’ attention towards America’s long-standing dependency on automobiles. Collectively, each of the three artists exhibited locate the camera at the heart of their subjects, exposing in varied ways, a sense of humankind’s uneasy and discordant relationship with nature – one that both captivates its sublime or quiet beauty, while simultaneously reflecting the long view of a shared responsibility.

co-curated by Kevin Hoth featuring Dan Baumbach, Leslee Broersma, Christopher Carruth, Ali Cowel, Teri Havens, Kevin Hoth, Rebecca Stumpf & Preston Utley

Photography is arguably one of the most accessible art forms - everyone takes photos. Yet it is also one of the most under appreciated art forms. The exhibitions on view bring to light the complexities of photography and tell a story behind, through and in front of the camera. We show you the incredible amount of “filters” photographers use - from socio-economic status to presentation. See behind the scenes of epic 90’s sitcoms and examine unreal photo manipulations. Gain understanding of the artist, the process and the subject. If every photo tells a story, these are the ones worth knowing.

The Month of Photography exhibitions will open on March 7th, starting at 5 pm. At 5:30 the exhibition curators will introduce the artists and take questions. This is your opportunity to meet and mingle with the artists and curator. Light fare for attendees, plus drinks available for purchase. All receptions are free and open to the public. Other Month of Photography events are taking place the same night in Boulder.

Purchase tickets HERE or call 720.913.0130

Reception with the artist to follow

Denver photographer Evan Anderman’s experience as a geologist and pilot has greatly informed his photography. Using the Colorado landscape as his primary subject, Anderman’s work explores our relationship with and impact on the natural landscape, addressing issues that arise from land use for everything from agriculture and ranching to suburban sprawl and exploitation of natural resources. He explores these ideas through both abstract and representational compositions created from ground level and bird’s eye views highlighting the natural, the man-made and the juxtaposition of the two.

There will be a reception following the lecture at:

Artworks Loveland - Madeline Wilson - Artist Talk

Stripped: Fractured Landscapes
Madeline Wilson

March 8 - April 19, 2019
Opening March 8, 6-9pm

March 19, 6-7pm, Artist Talk
April 8, 6-9pm, Open House

Stripped: Fractured Landscapes is a solo exhibition by Madeline Wilson. This exhibition features landscape photographs which were deconstructed, then reconstructed to create interrupted landscapes. The interrupted landscapes resemble our true perception of nature, fragmented by our inattention and by the mechanics of vision. The fractured images address variations on Chaos Theory and The Butterfly Effect – that our human footprint and our very presence changes the land. We can’t control the dynamic forces that are in constant movement, imperceptible geological changes that occur under our feet while sometimes leading to catastrophic events that get our attention. These ongoing, consistently repeating patterns occur in nature and provide the catalysts for interdependent growth and change.

Artworks Loveland is the largest nonprofit Studio Artist Community in Northern Colorado dedicated to advancing contemporary art and artists. We foster a collaborative studio environment supportive of the creative process. With a desirable framework of studio and gallery space, artists are free to work solo or to take advantage of collaborative opportunities. Artworks is proud to be an eclectic incubator that stands to shape the face and the future of Loveland.

CU Boulder, The Visual Arts Complex
Lower Level - Art History Building

Alex John Sweetman, Paul Stein, Paula Gillen, Melissa Pickering
March 8 - March 28, 2019
Opening, March 18, 5-7pm.
The building is open from 7am till 9pm.

Alex John Sweetman - Recent Work: Fall 2018
Color prints of symbols, arrows, lights and other found abstractions photographed in the Boulder environment.

Paul Stein - Lies
Paul Stein's series Lies explores visual appropriation, memory, and mortality. The diptychs in his project depict how observation gives way to memory, how truth and fiction merge, and how our experiences gain a new meaning through our reimagining. Like memory, intention gives way to intrusion, and so the sequencing of these photos is random. Paul's diptychs are created from found vintage photographs that he re-edits and places in dialogues. They are from the proposed book project Lies.

Paula Gillen - Roman Trumpe–l’oeil
For the digital collages of this latest series, Gillen fuses images of Julius Cesar and his cohorts, as depicted in Ancient Roman sculpture, with the faces of current US political figures. In this series, several acts of illusion—those of history, power, and the means of artistic representation—dramatically unravel. On display will be black and white portraits on metal.

Melissa Pickering - Fired or Forced Out
#firedorforcedout series
This is a series of people that trump has fired or forced out of office during his administration. The departures are often because he did not like how the person was behaving. His actions reveal cronyism, a reluctance to truly serve the people, and a purposeful undermining of the integrity of our White House and country. The text on each piece is from trump’s tweet from that day (relevant to the firing or not), that I have rearranged to tell a new story.

Rebels & Reform:
A Contemporary Photo Showcase of Over 50 Photographers from Burma

Curated by Ryan Libre


This showcase of exhibitions and screenings will give context and faces to stories you have never heard, from a country you don’t know how to call. As freedom of expression starts to peak it’s head out from 50 years of harsh censorship the visual arts scene in Burma is starting to get interesting, but artists, film makers, journalists are still routinely given or are threatened with long jail sentences for any ideas that the old guard of military dictators in new suits finds “too much”.

This showcase is just scratching the surface of this exciting but still risky time for photography in Burma. It includes works from individual artists and Everyday Kachin, the Yangon Photo Festival, the Myanmar Photo Archive, Let My Voice Be Heard, the Myitkyina Journal & Sakse.

Produced by DocArtsAsia & the Center for Asian Studies at CU Boulder for the Month of Photography Denver & generously hosted by the Visual Arts Center of CU Boulder.

FANTASY
Cali Banks

As an interdisciplinary artist, Banks' practice works within the realm of public versus private narratives. These narratives stem into identity and feminine discourse. In this small body of work, FANTASY, Banks uses a flatbed scanner as a camera, and displays images of women's lingerie. While these images are abstracted, the forms and textures of lingerie are still present. Crossing over between humor and eroticism, she uses imitation names of lingerie, paired with these abstract forms.

Denver’s highly regarded biennial Month of Photography is back; a month long, city-wide celebration recognizing photography’s strong standing in the contemporary art world. Through varying elements of photography, from traditional silver gelatin prints to a 3D augmented reality installation, this group exhibition will display the four basic elements that command the natural world. Showcasing earth, air, fire and water, these artists attempt to capture the essence of movement over time through patterns, capturing the splendor of motion to demonstrate the forceful power that keeps us at the mercy of the elements.

Walker Fine Art is a member of the Golden Triangle Museum District and the Denver Art Dealers Association. The gallery is located just blocks from the Denver Art Museum in the Prado building on 11th Avenue and Cherokee Street.

STUDIO ALTIERI - Chemigram Workshop

Deconstruction
March 14 - April 14, 2019

Sharifa Moore, Jason Bye, Leah Diament, Katherine Phenna, Joe Addison, Tania Kaaz, Jody Akers, Bill Westheimer, Leah Diament, Jason Bye, Sharifa Moore, and Gary Reed present

Deconstruction, an exhibition of works by 8 alternative process photographers dismantling traditional and modern modes of photography in the first official exhibit at Altieri Studios.

March 16, 11am-3pm
Chemigram Workshop

A chemigram is a camera-less process in which a substrate is applied to light-sensitive paper to resist the chemical effects of black and white chemistry. By alternating the coated paper through developer and fixer in multiple baths, the substrate will periodically be removed from the paper, resulting in an image that can be colorful and rich in tonality.

Includes Intro to Chemigram chemicals, processes, creative ideas, and print making.

Instructor Joe Addison received his BFA from UCD studying with Carol Golemboski and Bill Adams. Joe specializes in alternative processes and camera-less photography and has exhibited his work nationally. Joe currently resides in Omaha, Nebraska where he co-curates Petshop Gallery, regularly teaches alt-process workshops and maintains the darkroom at The Union for Contemporary Art.

Seidel City - Kellye Eisworth and Forrest Lotterhos - Opening

Subject & Surface
Kellye Eisworth and Forrest Lotterhos

March 15 – May 2, 2019
Opens March 15, 6–9pm

In Subject & Surface, artists Kellye Eisworth and Forrest Lotterhos engage with the body as a site of exploration. The artists draw on their own personal histories to create two distinct bodies of work investigating concepts of identity, agency, and vulnerability. In his short film phoria, Lotterhos draws from his experience as a trans man to offer an intimate look into the complex relationship between the body and the self through candid conversations with members of the trans community. Informed by her experience as a woman with prominent, visible scars, Eisworth’s Topographies of Pain is a series of photographs featuring “female” subjects who have been physically marked by their past while questioning the body’s role in the construction and performance of identity and gender. In Subject & Surface, these two intricate narratives intersect and diverge to form a dialogue that deepens the complexity and amplifies the resonance of both.

phoria
phoria is an intimate view of five AFAB (assigned female at birth) trans* people with dysphoria, re: chest. It was shot entirely on black and white 16mm film and hand processed. phoria started as a simple and straight forward idea about showcasing non-binary people and their bodies. It soon developed into a deep and intimate inquiry into identity, self, trans-ness, and the infinite and intricate complexities of transgender people and their experiences in life and existing within their bodies that they often times feel estranged to. www.achroous.space

Topographies of Pain
Mapping the geography of pain through markings on the body, Topographies of Pain grapples with the ethical implications of the act of looking and what it means to bear witness to the pain of others. At once both intimate and aggressive, this relationship is dependent on the willingness of both participants to see and be seen by the other. The photographs work to use this shared vulnerability as a point of connection, collapsing the distinction between self and other where the pain of revealing and the pain of looking at that which is revealed converge. www.kellyeeisworth.com

Noah Mclaurine & Leah Schretenthaler
March 6 - April 7, 2019
Opening Reception Friday, March 8, 6-9 PM
Firehouse Art Center

To coincide with the Longmont Museum Ansel Adams exhibit, the Firehouse Art Center presents two contemporary photographers addressing landscape and land use.

Panel Discussion co-presented by Firehouse Art Center located at Longmont Museum
On the Ground: Contemporary Landscape Photography After Ansel Adams
Moderated by Eric Paddock, Curator of Photography, Denver Art Museum
Thursday, March 14, 7:15 pm, FREE

For two centuries, idealized visions of the American West have lured people in search of adventure, wealth, freedom, and inspiration. Ansel Adams expressed the region’s breathtaking vistas and the dramatic qualities of Western light with such skill that his photographs command our respect and inspire our environmental sympathies sixty, even eighty, years after he made them. This conversation will explore how contemporary landscape photographers square the idealism and grandeur of Adams’s vision with their own perceptions of today’s West.

TIME: Biannual UCCS Visual Art Faculty Exhibition celebrates and investigates the work of contemporary artists serving as educators at UCCS. GOCA has championed conceptually innovative projects in its exhibition spaces for the past 37 years, inviting artists from this region and beyond to manifest their visions in collaboration with our students, faculty and staff. For this exhibition, we invited our faculty to respond to a theme that is connected to the biannual POLLINATE festival the exhibition is part of – TIME.

Time is both a physical dimension of our universe and and a marker of change. Beyond the ticking of seconds in a minute, minutes in an hour and beyond, time is also the accumulation of history, the forward march of ever-faster connections through contemporary technologies, and the incremental tedium of everyday experience. Contemporary art and artists have responded to time not as a unitary subject or theme, but in a multi-faceted way that’s as diverse as contemporary art itself.

Works in this exhibition span a broad range of media and concepts – painting, drawing, sculpture, sound installation, kinetic works, time-based media and performative happenings are all represented. The artists were invited to exhibit new or recent work connecting to overarching theme. It is an honor to give platform to the work of our artist faculty at UCCS – I invite you to connect with the work in our spaces this spring at our Marie Walsh Sharpe Gallery of Contemporary Art site, in the Ent Center for the Arts.

Studio Altieri - Deconstruction - Opening

Deconstruction

March 14 - April 14, 2019
Opens March 14, 6-9pm

Sharifa Moore, Jason Bye, Leah Diament, Katherine Phenna, Joe Addison, Tania Kaaz, Jody Akers, Bill Westheimer, Leah Diament, Jason Bye, Sharifa Moore, and Gary Reed present

Deconstruction, an exhibition of works by 8 alternative process photographers dismantling traditional and modern modes of photography in the first official exhibit at Altieri Studios.

Deconstruction visually breaks down the discussion of modern photography, exploring the ever-changing answer to the question, What is a photograph? Combining historic, archaic, modern, and experimental processes, each of the artists in Deconstruction test the constraints of “Photography”.

Aesthetically, the idea of Deconstruction is interpreted by each artist differently. From using destructive elements in the developing and printing stages to visually breaking down an image to monochrome and lines, the idea of deconstruction is explored in depth through compositionally vivid imagery.

As the images question our traditional beliefs and our process of arriving to them, it lends us an opportunity, in a state of openness, to question other belief systems and how we arrived there. As Derrida suggested, perhaps one idea or thought is not better than the next, perhaps all ideas are complex and come with both advantages and pitfalls. With that understanding we have a better chance of seeing commonalities between these images and the people around us.

The opening will be followed by a series of events and workshops every weekend, centered around alternative processes and bringing the photographic community together. Please reference the calendar for upcoming events.

MATTER - Rick Griffith - Opening

Beat the Whites with the Same Red Wedge, Version 3.2
Rick Griffith

Opens March 14, 5-8pm
Open studio and demonstration

In 1919 Lazar Markovich Lissitzky created the work commonly called "Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge."One hundred years later, Rick Griffith says, "We’ve been here before." Griffith re-orients the pages of Black publications into formats which resemble art. And with that—carries the weight of its content into the past and the future simultaneously. A pluperfect spiral.

Rick Griffith is an accomplished collagist whose work is stimulated and concerned with telling of history and the retelling of the future perfect.

MegaFauna - Month of Photography 2019 Exhibit - Opening

MegaFauna

Month of Photography 2019 Exhibit
Curated by John McCaskill
Featuring artists Shellie Bee, Tania Kaaz and Al Heuer
March 14 - April 6, 2019
Opens March 14, 2-9pm

Featured Event First Friday April 5, 2-9pm including activations, networking and holistic practice by Cultural Arts United


The prevailing theme of MegaFauna’s 2019 calendar is Universal Agreements, a monthly series of activations defining the conduit of expression from creativity to commerce. Programmed through a series of dynamic mediums and methodologies, MegaFauna continues to seek solidarity throughout the cultural arts and transform the narrative of the creative into narrator, empowering through causality and the universal principle of oneness.

 About the Artists:
Shellie Bee has spent years photographing the streets of Denver with the unique perspective and inside access to the street art culture that is rarely seen. 

A visual artist with an obsession for graffiti and urban decay, Shellie Bee has made a name for herself locally and on online. She also creates colorful and sometimes chaotic on of a kind collages with her photos. With an impressive collection of over 30,000 photographs, she hopes to one day make available a historical archive for future street artist and graffiti writers. | @shelliebee

Al Heuer is a local Denver artist/ photographer and a big fan of history and politics and enjoys taking his camera to former "Cold War" foes and photographing every day life in these places. Through these pieces he tries to open doors toward the future with a look back at the long road of history behind us. He's a big believer that you can’t move into the future without understanding our shared past. | www.redarmyart.com

Tania Kaaz is a photographer who soaks her film in different substances, such as alcohols and lemon juice, in order to destroy the emulsion, resulting in surreal images. She explores the idea of creating beauty out of destruction and hopes to take the viewer on a journey to see the world in new ways and not as it is to the normal eye. | www.taniakaaz.com
