Center for the Arts Evergreen - Rocky Mountain Monochrome Salon - Opening

Rocky Mountain Monochrome Salon
Shades of Gray

February 22 - March 22, 2019
Opening February 22, 4-7pm

The Center for the Arts Evergreen is please to host an exhibit of the Rocky Mountain Monochrome Salon members entitled “Shades of Gray”. Monochrome photography takes many forms in our modern age: traditional film-based, black-and-white photography, digital black-and-white photography, hybrid photography, which combines aspects of both traditional and digital processes, and historic photographic processes that date back to the earliest days of photography.

The mission of the Rocky Mountain Monochrome Salon is to support monochrome-based fine art photographers across the Rocky Mountain Region, while educating the public and art community about the history, processes and value of monochrome photography today. Artists participating with the Rocky Mountain Monochrome Salon are: Dave Barry, Jeff Graves, Chris James, Ron Johnson, Linda Little, Jim Montague, Steve Podrasky, Michael Snively, George Vago, and Jacqueline Webster.

Coinciding with the exhibit will be three educational experiences. CAE Executive Director, Steve Sumner, will be presenting a brown bag lecture, “History of Photography”, on February 27th at noon, which will be free and open to the public. A panel discussion entitled “Why Black and White?” will take place on March 8th starting at 4:00pm. Finally, Jaqueline Webster will be presenting a lecture on “Alternative Process” on March 14th at 4:00pm.

The exhibition opens on February 22nd, 2019 and runs through March 22nd, 2019 at the Center for the Arts Evergreen located at 31880 Rocky Village Drive Evergreen, CO. A reception open to the public will take place from 4:00pm - 7:00pm on Friday, February 22nd with refreshments at the Center for the Arts Evergreen.

Center for the Arts Evergreen (CAE) was founded in 1974. Since then, CAE has been a leader in advocacy and support for visual and performing arts in Evergreen. The year 2017 was a landmark year for CAE as it moved into its new home, the renovated and expanded "Old Bergen Church,” a designated historic Jefferson County landmark. The new CAE allows for expanded programming, providing exhibitions, classes, festivals, concerts, and special events to serve the greater cultural needs of Evergreen.

Niza Knoll Gallery - Randall Sampson - Opening

3631: A Solo Cycling Journey Across America
Randall Sampson
February 22 - March 22, 2019
Artist Reception February 22, 6-8:30pm

(Denver) Lawyer, amateur photographer, and erstwhile ceramics and metal artist, Randall Sampson hadn’t owned a bicycle for almost a quarter-century when, in the summer of 2017, he purchased a used road bike and rekindled his long-dormant love of cycling during frequent round-trip rides between his Denver home and Boulder. With his planned 2018 retirement in mind, that initial reintroduction to cycling was followed by the purchase of a touring bike, trips to the gym, and the development of plans for a coast-to-coast solo cycling adventure. The upcoming exhibit, “3631: A Solo Cycling Journey Across America” chronicles his trip to the lonely reaches of the northern United States and Ontario, Canada via photographs and written narrative. It will be on view from February 22 – March 22, 2019 at Niza Knoll Gallery, 915 Santa Fe Drive, in conjunction with the state-wide, Month of Photography celebration. The public is invited to an Artist Reception on Thursday, Feb 22 from 6-8:30 and to view the show during regular Winter Hours, 1 to 4 pm Wednesday through Saturday, First and Third Friday, 4 to 8 pm.

Sampson’s journey began alone on August 1, 2018, at the ferry terminal in Anacortes, Washington, and ended, after traveling the northern United States and Ontario, Canada, including the Cascade mountains of Washington, the northern plains, the upper Midwest, the north shore of Lake Erie, the Erie Canal, New England and more, exactly 75 days later, in Portland, Maine, among friends.

Sampson takes us along on his travels through his photographs and supplementary narrative excerpts that feature insights and anecdotes. Unlike past expeditions, he purposefully did not have professional camera equipment in tow—only his iPhone camera. It’s important for the viewer to remember that Sampson embarked on this journey not as an artistic endeavor, but rather as a life endeavor or “bucket-list” item. He hopes that the photographs in this exhibition are enhanced and informed by, rather than diminished by, this knowledge and thus are received in the spirit of chronicling a small, but very meaningful, sliver of his life. Given the context of a bike-trip, most images are the product of a very brief stop on the shoulder of a road. Many—perhaps better—photographs not taken, were lost to real or perceived pressures of time, the lack of safety in the moment, or a reluctance, say, to interrupt the hard work of slogging up a mountain pass.

VFW Post 1 - Transitions - Opening

VFW Post 1

Transitions: Photo Journeys of Change and Passage
February 22 – April 19, 2019
Opening February 23, 5–8pm

Exhibiting Artists:
Jody Akers, Elane Graves, Charles Jamison, Patrick O’Toole, Chuck Rasco, Scott Redmond, Darren Schultz, & the 2018 CPAC Veterans Workshop Series participants

The VFW Post 1 Veterans Arts Council is collaborating with the Colorado Photographic Arts Center to announce an exhibition of Veterans work during Month of Photography.

Open to public on First Friday Art Walks (March 1 & April 5, 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm) and Third Friday Art Walks March 15 & April 19 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm)

Transitions: Photo Journeys of Change and Passage

The Veterans Arts Council at VFW Post 1 will exhibit the work of seven veterans that explores the transition from service to photography during the 2019 Denver Month of Photography in collaboration with the Colorado Photographic Arts Center’s Veterans Workshop Series.

Transition can be defined as the process of changing or developing. Transitions are also how chapters of a book or musical verse are linked together. This is a process that all veterans deal with when they leave military service regardless of branch or time served. All veterans transition from a heavily structured lifestyle to a new way of living where there are many options and paths to take.

This exhibit looks at how photography plays a role in the transition of eight veterans from the military and how their personal photographic journey developed. For the veterans in this exhibit the link between chapters in their life is photography. Each veteran’s story and process is different. They range from the stars to the ocean; from nature to architecture; from self-taught to formally educated. Regardless, each individual has a camera in hand, which becomes the common denominator. The photographs in this exhibit explore the paths that each of these photographers has taken, and celebrates the diversity of photography and where it can lead a person.

Art Gym - Settlers - Opening

Settlers
February 28- March 22, 2019
Opening Reception Thursday, February 28, 2018 5-8 pm

Sarah Gjertson, Heather Oelklaus, Sarah Fukami, Carl Iwasaki, Tya Anthony, James Milmoe, Christopher Perez
Guest curated by Rupert Jenkins

Using photographic media as a foundation for their work, the seven artists in Settlers convey, individually and collectively, the colonization of the American southwest. Whatever their motive and means—some came voluntarily, others were forced—the occupation of Native land is something that continues with every wave of Colorado “native” and newcomer.

Looked at from a Native perspective, the people documented in this show might be thought of as alien invaders. “Settlers” is not a judgment of this, but it is a reminder that for every “new” territory there is an old, stolen one.

The images in the show represent settlers from the late-19th century to the early 21st. The show takes place during the 2019 Denver Month of Photography and works have been selected to align with the range of art-making conducted at Art Gym, most especially print-making. All the artists are from the Denver metro region, and span more than 60-years of artmaking, 1950-2010.

Art Gym is creative workspace with on-demand access to specialty tools - all within a dynamic community. Our members are dancers, actors, chefs, printers, painters, sculptors, metalsmiths, lapidarists, fine artists, writers, designers, illustrators, and more.

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.

Micro Galaxies in the Everyday
Diane Allison
Opening March 1st, 5-9pm

40 W Studios is hosting Denver native Diane Allison's most recent large scale Micro Galaxies in the Everyday. These works showcase the unseen or unnoticed microcosms that surround us. Her interest in natural phenomenons, clouds, sunsets, sunlight led her to closer examination into the infinitesimal. After her recent CRUSH Walls involvement, she grew to love wheat pasting, and began a new technique involving bringing the pasteup process indoors and moveable.

The 40W Studios will be open for the first Friday of March from 5-9 in conjunction with the Month of Photography and there will be a district wide and wildly popular Mardi Gras Party in which all of the studio artists will be in attendance.

The light can be natural or artificial, or a combination that enhances the impact, drama, emotion, and message of the image. The underlying theme is the vision, interpretation, and use of light.

Visions West - Reine Paradis, Midnight - Opening

Reine Paradis, Midnight
March 1 - April 6, 2019
Opening Friday, March 1st 6-8pm

Reine Paradis constructs narrative photographs staging herself as the central figure in a surreal landscape. In the series Midnight, Paradis uses neon color contrasts of almost acidic yellow set in a saturated blue background to create her own fantastical world.

Maquettes of the scenes are sketched out before the photographs are shot, the artist then constructs and paints accessories and props to be used in each scene. Each scene is carefully staged and edited and the resulting photographs seem to reference pop art as well as carefully arranged film stills.

The Midnight series was created concurrently with a documentary film directed by Carl Lindstrom entitled “Queen of Paradis” which follows the artist across the US as she finds the perfect location for her colorful photographs.

Each scene is an adventure and a story in and of itself.

Vertigo Art Space - Anthony Camera and Andrew Novick- Opening

Articular: An exploration in lenticular
and stereoscopic imagery
Anthony Camera and Andrew Novick

Opening March 1, 7-10pm

Photographers Anthony Camera and Andrew Novick each explore the possibilities and limits of 3D and flip-style autostereoscopic lenticulars as well as stereoscopic representations of the same images with View-Masters®. The lenticular technique involves looking at multiple interlaced images through a plastic lens which exploits subtle parallax viewing angles to see different images. It is interesting to examine this alternate form of photography because it is an in-person experience. In the age where most experiences are relayed to the world instantly through social media, this slows things down and requires viewing it in person.

Anthony and Andrew have been shaking up photography in Denver for many years. Anthony specializes in editorial and advertising photography. His work has appeared in Westword, 5280, The Denver Post and several national publications. He often does first Friday Portrait Parade photoshoots with passers-by. Andrew is a highly recreational photographer and is also a collector, filmmaker, former rock-star and proprietor of FUN.

Angela Faris Belt Artist Talk
PhotoVox - March 13, 6:30-8pm

Angela Faris Belt’s solo exhibition Vestiges, is a visual meditation on humankind's influence on nature, created over several visits to a unique grove of Bristlecone Pine trees near her home in the Colorado mountains. This series was photographed throughout 2015-17 using Polaroid Type 665 positive-negative film that expired in 1986. The visual implications of the expired film—its imperfections and truncated tonal range—juxtaposed with the unique Bristlecone Pine forms, underscores the steadfast value of the past, and a sense of unease as we move into a future where industry and technology supersede our adopting a balanced place in the natural world.

January 31 - April 12, 2019

“Photography as a Vehicle for Empathy:
Images as Living Representations of the Experience of Others”

Panel Discussion March 7, 2019 at 6pm

Featured photographer panelists: Susan Goldstein, Benjamin Rasmussen, Kristin Hatgi Sink, Roddy MacInnes.
Panel Discussion moderated by The Art Gallery at the Fulginiti Curator Simon Zalkind

By its nature, photography can function as either art or document or both. From its early almost universal embrace as a “true” representation of persons and events, photography has – probably more so than any other medium – been used to evoke empathy in viewers. For more than a century, the photograph has been the most universally disseminated form of visual communication placing it in the vanguard of the transmission of socially committed and humanistic concerns and themes – race, gender, familial and domestic relationships, nation, class, war, industry, nature, historical consciousness, and technological change. In this panel, four local artists (Susan Goldstein, Benjamin Rasmussen, Kristin Hatgi, and Roddy MacInnes) whose work is centered on the evocation of “empathy” will engage with the moderator (Simon Zalkind) regarding their own work in both historical and current contexts. They will explore how and why the photograph has such a unique role in both empathic response and activist practice. The discussion will also make specific relationships and references to the images and themes in the exhibition, Showing (work x family. That exhibit is an expansive, six-screen installation featuring 186 photographs from over one hundred US artists. The exhibit reveals the intimate choreography of our everyday lives and explores the domestic balancing act with images of mealtimes, bedtimes, commutes, carpools, calendars, and chores.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive at 5:00 to view the exhibition prior to the panel discussion.

Showing (work x family), is a multi-screen photography installation featuring the work of 135 renowned American photographers. It will be on exhibit at the Art Gallery at the Fulginiti Pavilion for Bioethics and Humanities.

Showing (work x family) is an expansive, six-screen photography installation featuring an original soundscape and 186 photographs by 135 photographers from around the United States. Among the artists whose work is featured are Gay Block, Lauren Greenfield, Wing Young Huie, Zun Lee, Rania Matar, Greg Miller, Carlos Ortiz, Melissa Ann Pinney, Andrea Modica, Sylvia Plachy, Angela Strassheim, and Michael Wolf. Images are sequenced by a proprietary, controlled randomization algorithm and presented on a sculptural, translucent tensile structure (approximately 6’ high x 28’ long x 4.5’ wide) designed by Viemeister Industries, New York. The installation includes an original sound environment composed by musician, performance artist, and poet Alicia Jo Rabins. The order of the imagery follows the arc of the day, from before dawn to late at night.

Showing (work x family) reveals the intimate choreography—the push and pull of work and family—in our everyday life and explores a universal domestic balancing act that has no fixed dynamic. These photographs reveal the intimate routines of mealtimes and bedtimes, commutes and carpools, calendars and keys, school-day mornings and weekend chores, childcare and grandparent shifts, single-parent households and blended families. The photographers whose images are featured in the exhibition offer sensitive perspectives on work and family, ranging from small, beautiful moments of intimacy to raw expressions of daily tensions.

McMahon Gallery:
An Act of Selection
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.

Colorado State University-Pueblo Fine Art Gallery

“If This Wasn't Me...”
March 1st - 29th, 2019
Opening Thursday, March 7th from 5-7pm

Brianna Anderson, Mike Beaty, Bridgett Clay, Andre Cortesi, Christine Deutsch, Todd Edward Herman, Christopher Homminga, Mathias Ingram, James Smith, Kenny Williams.

Collaborations with participants in the Pueblo Regional Center* Photography Workshop. Facilitated by Todd Edward Herman

“If This Wasn't Me...” explores the daily realities and visual imaginations of adults with developmental and psychiatric disabilities, living under the auspices of Colorado's Pueblo Regional Center.* Read Preface by Todd Edward Hermann HERE

“If This Wasn't Me...”
During a recent six month photography workshop, Todd Edward Herman collaborated with Pueblo Regional Center* residents to produce the images in this exhibit. While Herman is clearly shooting his photographs from an outsider's perspective, the photographs made by Pueblo Regional Center* photographers offer new and intimate looks at the often disregarded beauty and mystery within their own home environments. Herman then presents all of the photographs together on the same artistic level, delicately crossing the line that separates teacher and student, photographer and subject, outsider and community, personal agency and full psychiatric guardianship.

“If This Wasn't Me...” is an intimate and poetic collection of images -- moving viewers beyond frequently projected stereotypes of pity and adulation -- mindful of everyone's equal need and ability to meet life's contingencies on their own terms.

Mr. Pool Gallery - Boulder - Evenings with the Moon - Opening

Evenings with the Moon
Wendi Schneider

March 1 - May 30, 2019
Opening Thursday, March 7, 6-9 pm

In Evenings with the Moon, artist Wendi Schneider contemplates the power of universal experiences to unify and find transcendence using the moon as muse. Printed on vellum or Japanese kozo and gilded with precious metals, the subjects echo the luminosity of their celestial inspiration. Schneider’s ethereal images of the night draw on the metaphor of darkness and light to express our collective longing for harmony and balance amidst the chaos of the world. This synthesis of form and content, paired with poignant poetry, allows the viewer to enter a space between the real and the imagined to consider the commonalities in our collective consciousness.

Owned and operated by Terry Seidel and Ann Helke, Mr Pool Gallery has been a longtime beloved cultural hub to the community of Boulder and the front range.

Reception with the artist to follow

Denver photographer and photography educator Tom Finke creates social documentary photography focusing on the urban and natural environments of locations primarily in Japan and the United States. His sensitive and poetic work focuses on people and the places in which we live. In his book Japan: Footprints in Time 1997-2010, Finke explains, “As a photographer my chief interest is to observe fleeting facial expressions and the constantly changing placements and angles of bodies in space… All of us are signaling to one another all the time, both deliberately and involuntarily. My photographs are just another part of the constant ritual of communication in which we all participate.”

Delirium
Tya Alisa Anthony

March 8 – April 5, 2019
Opening March 8, 4-8pm
Rotunda Gallery

Delirium is a state of acute temporary confusion making it difficult to think, remember, sleep, pay attention, and express oneself verbally. Delirium may last a few hours, as long as several weeks, or in some cases, several months. According to medical diagnosis, delirium is usually caused by alcohol withdrawal, after major surgery, or as a by product of dementia. In the case of reflecting on our current state of the division of society, resurgence of racism and the Presidential Administration of the United States, delirium due to dismay may last for the next two to six years or longer. Depending on the actual cause of the delirium, treatment may include but is not limited to elimination of usage of specific media outlets who provide the distribution of subversive and counterproductive information. Dealing with the daily dismay of social media timelines that have lead to a wide variety of fractured relationships, friendships, and actual political progress, Delirium allows participants to visually express their anxiety through performance photography and collage. Do not worry, full recovery from delirium is possible with the appropriate treatment. It can take up to a few weeks for you to think, speak, and feel physically like yourself. One might have side effects from social media withdrawal methods used to treat this condition.

Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design is an innovative, rigorous, and community-oriented global learning environment that inspires passion for critical thinking and prepares learners to be forces of change in the creative industries, our communities and the world.

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.

Station 16 - Lyle Owerko - Opening

Lyle Owerko
The Boombox Project

March 8th, 2019- April 5th, 2019
Opening March 8th, 6-9p, Artist in Attendance

Winner of the Hasselblad Masters Award, Lyle Owerko is a New York based photographer. Known for his seminal photographs of the September 11th attack, which included the iconic cover shot of the burning towers on the cover of TIME Magazine. His imagery is part of the permanent collection of the Library of Congress, as well were published as singular volume of historical record in "And No Birds Sang" (Wonderlust Publishing, 2002). Owerko is also the author of "The Boom Box Project" (Abrams, 2010), featuring an introduction by Spike Lee - the book focuses on the seminal sonic object that defined a generation producing the first overview of the history of the Boombox in all of it's bombastic glory. Owerko first broke on to the art scene with his "Samburu" project featuring black-and-white portraits of an isolated, nomadic people in Northern Kenya, who remain mostly untouched by the Western world. Owerko's breathtaking photographs of one of the last warrior tribe's still in existence are stark and fiercely beautiful, each dissociative portrait of the tribe, reflecting their pride, calm, and remoteness. Owerko’s most recent project "The Mongolian Eagle Hunters” focuses on a dynamic group of pastoralists who live in the remote valleys of the Altai Mountains in the country's far west. Inhabiting one of the fiercest climates on the planet, Eagle Hunters define the edge between both warrior and nomad. Existing in equal symbiosis between Horse, Eagle, Man and Earth. To be an 'Eagle Hunter' is not merely a title to the Mongolians (of this most distinct environment), it is truly a holistic way of life that goes back to the times of Genghis Khan. Part anthropology, part fine art these projects stand alone in their execution and study of of human nature. Simultaneously magnificent and unsettling, Owerko’s meticulous images act as a historical record people's whose way of life is rapidly disappearing in the face of social upheaval, ecological shifts and the onslaught of rapidly changing cultural development.

JuiceBox - Joseph Kolean - Opening

JuiceBox Art Space

Nearer to Thee
Joseph Kolean
March 8 - April 19, 2019
Opens March 8, 6pm

Filmmaker Joseph Kolean here organizes his photographs in relation with Dan Kolean's, his father, so that distinction between the two begins to disappear. Having recognized in his father’s vernacular photographs of vacations and family portraits a visual language that might already inform his own, Joseph Kolean tests the ability of a gallery context to host a conversation in which the contributions are collectively generated. The refusal to establish boundaries that distinguish the photographs of the father and the son orients the pictures to the nature of familial relationships and their effect on life trajectory, as well as how memory warps, distorts, distills, and evaporates.

RedLine Contemporary Art Center

RedLine Contemporary Art Center

The overall theme of RedLine's 2019 calendar is D | Vision, a series of exhibitions that will explore the relationship between social, cultural or political division and artistic vision. Throughout the year, RedLine's exhibits, special events, and programs will seek to investigate the ways in which division opens space for new creation and perspectives or how culture makes vision out of division.

March 9 - April 7, 2019

Opening reception March 9, 6-9p

Eschewing traditional notions of imagery, this exhibit aims to shake, disrupt, and dizzy our understanding of visual culture and modern society. Photography is both a broken concept and an ever expanding medium; fluctuating between complacent states of being and important diverse artistic models. Delirium: Three Visions, is a photo-based exhibit highlighting critical contemporary voices and amplifying challenging artists working in and around modes of photography.

The exhibition Nest is a celebration of the beautiful, creative chaos of Rhinoceropolis and of Colin Ward who embodied the spirit of Rhino in his 24/7 art and music output.

"We ( the artists involved ), believe that many environments in public space are designed with apathy and ignorance to the vivid imagination of human beings and nature. The public are largely unaware or naive to the fact that we are walking around inside the financial elites' program, which is many times void of any imaginative intention ; only driven by the desire to keep the few in control of all resources. Holding the imagination hostage and hiding the possibilities of beauty and alchemical architectural design from the masses keeps many people unaware of the creative and infinite potential of their selves as individuals and communities. Creativity is the greatest rebellion " Colin Ward

LEON Gallery - Jeff Davenport - Opening

Nights
Jeff Davenport

March 9 - April 20, 2019
Opens March 9, 7-11pm

Jeff Davenport is a Los Angeles based photographer. After graduating the from University of Colorado at Boulder with Film and Art History degrees, he focused most of his creative output as a musician in Denver. Inspired by the vivid terrain and its expanding arts scene, Jeff moved to Los Angeles in 2016 to concentrate on his photography. Jeff works primarily in urban landscape and portraiture, often emphasizing the plasticity of color and perception.

Nights is a collection of street photographs shot over the last four years during late night walks through the neighborhoods of Los Angeles and beyond. These photographs explore the sublime in the nondescript corners of the everyday.

Working only with the predetermined light of city planners, business and home owners, the work reveals how the transactional light of security and safety can transcend into the fantastic and the extraordinary. Influenced by directors like Michael Mann, the painters of the Ashcan School, Richard Estes’ photorealism and the filmic mega-productions of Gregory Crewdson, Nights is a homage to our inner lives and imaginations — stills of the films playing in our heads.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Month of Photography Lecture: Evan Anderman
Tuesday, March 19th

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:

The exhibition Nest is a celebration of the beautiful, creative chaos of Rhinoceropolis and of Colin Ward who embodied the spirit of Rhino in his 24/7 art and music output.

"We ( the artists involved ), believe that many environments in public space are designed with apathy and ignorance to the vivid imagination of human beings and nature. The public are largely unaware or naive to the fact that we are walking around inside the financial elites' program, which is many times void of any imaginative intention ; only driven by the desire to keep the few in control of all resources. Holding the imagination hostage and hiding the possibilities of beauty and alchemical architectural design from the masses keeps many people unaware of the creative and infinite potential of their selves as individuals and communities. Creativity is the greatest rebellion " Colin Ward

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 consider divergent aspects of the land from Maisel’s vertiginous, abstracted and altered aerial overviews to O’Connell’s vast horizons anticipating life-sustaining rain, and the clouds that deliver it, to Benning’s fixed views bordering on a banality of beauty as a vagabond of the open road. Among Maisel’s chief concerns in the four series on view, “The Lake Project,” “American Mine,” “Terminal Mirage” and “The Mining Project,” are the politics and aesthetics of radically human-altered environments and how we perceive our place in time via investigations, focusing on landscapes that are off-limits, quarantined or hidden from view. O’Connell’s ongoing investigations of the northern and eastern plains of Colorado and Wyoming make quiet observations where the hand of mankind may be less apparent, but nonetheless is distinctly evident as the artist is cognizant of 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 the prospect of such watery relief. Benning, with his experimental film “small roads,” remains fully engaged in a seemingly still-framed, analytic, yet meditative investigation of the relationships between humankind and nature within his contemplative approach to the resonant, cinematic medium. Collectively, each of the three artists locate the camera at the center of vast terrain; exposing finite natural vistas while alluding to the disruptive role of humankind.

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.

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.

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.

Join Clyfford Still Museum director Dean Sobel at the Colorado Photographic Arts Center for a program that challenges participants to look beyond their first impression and spend quality time with a single work of art.

As director of the Clyfford Still Museum, Dean Sobel spearheaded the efforts to create a permanent home for the Clyfford Still Estate, encompassing approximately 3,200 works of art by Still that were donated to the City of Denver in 2004. From 2000 to 2005, Sobel was Director of the Aspen Art Museum, a non-collecting kunsthalle. During his tenure, Sobel led the institution through its accreditation process and developed museum goals and programs for its 25th anniversary, including an ambitious presentation of site-specific installations presented around Aspen. Prior to this appointment, from 1995–2000, Sobel was Chief Curator at the Milwaukee Art Museum, where he held the joint position of Curator of Contemporary Art.

“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.

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.

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.

Neill teaches at The Colorado Photographic Arts Center in Denver, BreckCreate in Breckenridge, and teaches snowboarding and skiing at Keystone Resort. | www.kianeill.com

Todd Powell's passion for photography began as he watched his first print develop in the orange glow of the darkroom in 6th grade.  It continued to grow through high school, as he earned a degree in professional photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology. 
Photographing a multitude of places, scenes and people as his career evolved, his life has been centered around image making.  He moved to the Colorado Rocky Mountains in 1986 to follow his dream of photographing adventure sports and travel. His magazine and advertising work have been published widely around the world.
In 2001, he began to exhibit personal images from his lifetime collection of images. Today, his fine art prints are found in hotels, healthcare facilities, offices and private homes around the country. | www.toddpowell.com

MCA - Amanda Wachob and Adam Lerner in Conversation - Holiday Events Center

Amanda Wachob, Tattoo This
February 14 - May 19, MCA Denver

Amanda Wachob and Adam Lerner in Conversation
February 20, 7pm, Holiday Event Center

Tattooist and visual artist Amanda Wachob is joined in conversation by MCA Executive Director Adam Lerner to discuss the exhibition Tattoo This and an expanded definition of contemporary art.

$10 Members & Students | $15 Nonmembers

Art talk tickets include complimentary admission to MCA Denver within one month of the talk (between 2/20–3/20)

Vanguard tattoo artist Amanda Wachob uses a tattoo machine and ink to create art on canvas, paper, silk, fruit, and leather, in addition to human bodies. Inspired largely by modern painting, in 2008, she pioneered a unique tattoo style incorporating brushstrokes, washes, paint splatters and spills, commonly referred to as “watercolor technique.” During that time, she has also been using the tattoo machines and ink to push the boundaries of her field and make works for gallery walls. Wachob not only advances tattooing as an autonomous art form but also brings the medium into closer dialogue with the wider domain of art.

Born in Buffalo, Amanda Wachob studied photography at State University of New York, at Purchase. Among numerous gallery exhibitions, she has shown her work at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and the New York Historical Society, and done projects with the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2015, Ad Age recognized her as one of the 50 “Most Creative People of the Year.” She lives and works in Brooklyn.

Artist Talk, February 15, 5:30pm
University Center for the Arts, The Griffin Concert Hall, CSU Campus

Presented by the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art at Colorado State University in collaboration with the Center for Fine Art Photography, the exhibition and related programs are made possible by a grant from the Lilla B. Morgan Memorial Endowment, which works to enhance the cultural development and atmosphere for the arts at Colorado State University (CSU), and with support from the Pride Resource Center at CSU, the Lory Student Center Arts Program at CSU, RamEvents at CSU, the Diversity Offices at CSU, and the FUNd at CSU.

Representations of older transgender people are nearly absent from our culture and those that do exist are often one-dimensional. For over five years, photographer Jess T. Dugan and social worker Vanessa Fabbre traveled throughout the United States creating To Survive on This Shore: Photographs and Interviews with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Older Adults. Seeking subjects whose lived experiences exist within the complex intersections of gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic class, and geographic location, they traveled from coast to coast, to big cities and small towns, documenting the life stories of this important but largely underrepresented group of older adults. The featured individuals share a wide variety of life narratives spanning the last ninety years, offering an important historical record of transgender experience and activism in the United States. The resulting portraits and narratives offer a nuanced view into the struggles and joys of growing older as a transgender person and offer a poignant reflection on what it means to live authentically despite seemingly insurmountable odds.

CU BOULDER ART MUSEUM - Documenting Change - Gallery Talk

CU BOULDER ART MUSEUM

Documenting Change: Our Climate (Past, Present, Future)

February 7 - July 20, 2019
Opens February 7, 5-7pm

Symposium: Friday, February 8, Register HERE
Gallery Talk, February 13, 12pm, Register HERE


Documenting Change: Our Climate (Past, Present, Future) considers how our observation of natural worlds is influenced by measures of time and representations of form. From the tectonic to the technological, from the single-celled to the systemic, environments exist in a state of flux that can be studied and interpreted by a scientist or an artist.
This exhibition brings together diverse ranges of materials and observers, spanning historical and contemporary eras. Finely detailed Renaissance botanical publications, sweeping Romantic era landscape painting, late 19th and early 20th-century scientific photo-documentation of glaciers and contemporary works that visualize complex datasets are composed from soot, silver, wool, wood, ink, pixels, and more.

This exhibition is co-curated by Erin Espelie and Hope Saska.
 FlexSpace: Documenting Change, on view February 7 — April 13, is coordinated by Jessica Brunecky and Traci McDonald.

CU Art Museum and the Nature, Environment, Science, Technology (NEST) Studio for the Arts will host a cross-disciplinary symposium: Anthropocene Resonance: Interdisciplinary Approaches. The symposium will feature a keynote by William L. Fox, Director of the Center for Art + Environment, Nevada Museum of Art. The sessions will engage scholarly and creative approaches to both making climate change tangible and analyzing ways in which climate change is made tangible through media, mapping, data visualization, science communication, art installation, sonification or other methods.

February 7th, 6-8pm

The Colorado Photographic Arts Center presents Elemental Construction, an exhibition of works by 10 photographers who explore the medium of collage.

At its most basic, collage is the assemblage of different materials to create a new whole. Materials can come from books, magazines, found imagery, the Internet, or virtually anywhere, creating limitless opportunities for artists.

Increasingly, photographers are embracing digital software and source materials to create work that pushes the boundaries of the medium. This exhibit takes a fresh look at how photographers today use collage to deconstruct and reconstruct narratives using a mix of new, digital technologies and more traditional approaches.

Purchase tickets HERE or call 720.913.0130

San Francisco-based photographer John Chiara describes his work as “part photography, part sculpture and part event.” He uses a custom-built large format camera, which fits on a flatbed trailer, to make large-scale unique color photographs of the landscape and built environment.

Chiara responds to the quality of the light in each chosen location and using composition and color creates images that represent the spirit of the place depicted while also allowing traces of the photographic process to remain visible in the final photograph.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Lecture tickets are $5 for students, DAM members and CPAC members, $12 for general admission.

Retrospective on Bears Ears National Monumen
t

February 1 - February 28, 2019
Opening February 1, 6-9pm

History of Bears Ears National Monument
On December 28, 2016, President Barack Obama declared 1,351,849 acres of land rich with 100,000 cultural sites in southeast Utah to be Bears Ears National Monument. the designation stretched from Moab, Utah to the north down to Mexican hat, Utah and bluff, Utah on the southern border. the narrow strip on the northern end of the designation is bordered on the west by canyon lands national park. as canyon lands national park ends, the monument designation expands westward, including the dark canyon wilderness, cedar mesa and the bears ears buttes which give the monument its name. the original designation came about as a collaboration between federal politicians, Utah politicians and the bears ears inter-tribal coalition – a consortium of tribal leaders of the Hopi tribe, Navajo nation, Ute mountain Ute tribe, Pueblo of Zuni, and Ute Indian tribe – all who have ancestral ties to the region.

On December 4, 2017 President Donald Trump reduced the designation by 85% to two smaller areas, comprising a total of 201,876 acres. These two smaller monuments – the Shash Jaa and Indian Creek National Monuments – have boundaries defined by president trump based on recommendations from Utah senator Orrin hatch and no input from the Native Americans who helped define the original boundaries. the Indian Creek unit contains a small strip of land at the southeast corner of canyon lands national park, (parts of the northern portion of the original designation) while the Shash Jaa unit is comprised primarily of a small strip of land at the southern border of the original designation containing the butler wash and mule canyon locations. the name Shash Jaa, as given by politicians, is controversial. the term means “bears ears” in Navajo but is reserved for use by the diné. (“the people” of the Navajo nation) as such, it is viewed as divisive by the other tribes with ties to the area.

In reducing the original monument’s designation, the government has planned to offer an old-west, gold rush-style land grab for civilians and corporations to lease the land – a “claim” is made by pounding stakes into the four corners of your claim - up to twenty acres per claim, and a $212 processing fee. after making a claim and paying the processing fee, an annual maintenance fee of $150 is required.

There are over 300 uranium mining claims located within the original monument boundaries – the vast majority of those claims are located outside the reduced boundaries. energy fuels, a Canadian uranium producer, owns many of those claims. energy fuels, and many other uranium mining corporations as well as gas and oil drilling corporations lobbied hard for the reduction so that the land would be opened up to mining and drilling.

“The Photograph and Compassionate Responsiveness.”
Panel Discussion March 7, 2019 at 6pm

---------------------------------------------------

Showing (work x family), is a multi-screen photography installation featuring the work of 135 renowned American photographers. It will be on exhibit at the Art Gallery at the Fulginiti Pavilion for Bioethics and Humanities.

Showing (work x family) is an expansive, six-screen photography installation featuring an original soundscape and 186 photographs by 135 photographers from around the United States. Among the artists whose work is featured are Gay Block, Lauren Greenfield, Wing Young Huie, Zun Lee, Rania Matar, Greg Miller, Carlos Ortiz, Melissa Ann Pinney, Andrea Modica, Sylvia Plachy, Angela Strassheim, and Michael Wolf. Images are sequenced by a proprietary, controlled randomization algorithm and presented on a sculptural, translucent tensile structure (approximately 6’ high x 28’ long x 4.5’ wide) designed by Viemeister Industries, New York. The installation includes an original sound environment composed by musician, performance artist, and poet Alicia Jo Rabins. The order of the imagery follows the arc of the day, from before dawn to late at night.

Showing (work x family) reveals the intimate choreography—the push and pull of work and family—in our everyday life and explores a universal domestic balancing act that has no fixed dynamic. These photographs reveal the intimate routines of mealtimes and bedtimes, commutes and carpools, calendars and keys, school-day mornings and weekend chores, childcare and grandparent shifts, single-parent households and blended families. The photographers whose images are featured in the exhibition offer sensitive perspectives on work and family, ranging from small, beautiful moments of intimacy to raw expressions of daily tensions.

Ansel Adams: Early Works
January 26 - May 26, 2019
Opening Reception, January 25, 6–8 pm

In honor of Adams’ love of music and his early interest in becoming a pianist instead of a photographer, this event will feature live music on our Shigeru Kawai piano, generously donated to the Museum by Lila Stewart. Cocktail attire. Light appetizers provided; cash bar.

Starting January 26, 2019 and running through May 26, 2019, the Longmont Museum will host an Ansel Adams: Early Works exhibit presented by Old Town Outfitters, your one-stop shop for outdoor adventure gear and clothing in downtown Longmont.

Ansel Adams was a giant in the field of landscape photography. His images of the unspoiled Western landscape were informed by his belief in the transcendental concept of the sublime–a complex combination of overwhelming awe and fear.

Many viewers are familiar with the Adams’ heroic, high-contrast prints from the 1970s. Much less well known are the intimate prints that the artist crafted earlier in his career.

Ansel Adams: Early Works focuses on these masterful small prints from the 1920s into the 1950s. By capturing the abject power of nature, Adams changed our understanding of landscape photography, solidifying it as a legitimate form of modern art.

The exhibit will also feature vintage cameras and photographic equipment of the type Ansel Adams used to create his remarkable photographs. These examples will give visitors a sense of the bulk of the cameras that Adams had to haul to cliff edges and mountaintops. The exhibition will also feature a gallery film showing Ansel Adams’ work process and the precision with which he approached creating images.

---------------------------------------------
Button Rock Preserve: Protecting Longmont's Watershed
Thursday, February 7, 6:30 pm; free admission—tickets required

The inspirational legacy of Ansel Adams includes his major significance as an environmentalist. Learn about one of Longmont’s most important environmental resources: water. Find out what it takes to manage the water, forests, and recreation at Button Rock Preserve. Watershed Ranger Jamie Freel will explore these topics and share stories from the flood of 2013. Get your free ticket starting January 21

---------------------------------------------

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 admission—tickets required

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 with such skill that his photographs command our respect and inspire our environmental sympathies nearly 100 years after he made them. Join us for a lively conversation with contemporary landscape photographers as they attempt to square the idealism and grandeur of Adams’ vision with their own perceptions of today’s West. Get your free ticket starting January 21

Co-presented with the Firehouse Arts Center.

BMoCA at Macky


Matthew Pevear: Mastering the Art of French Cooking
Curated by George P. Perez
January 14 – May 5, 2019
Opening Reception January 17, 2019 – 5:30-7:30pm

For his first solo show in the region, photographer Matthew Pevear presents a refined survey of work that was captured over the course of two years. As an observer, he takes the role of the pedestrian, walking countless hours exploring familiar landscapes, and looking past familiar tourist views. Mitigating and avoiding gestures that may lend to the obviousness of his surroundings, he captures and scoops up imagery that barely skims the surface of human centric spaces.

BMoCA at Macky is an exhibition series presented by Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) in collaboration with Macky Auditorium Concert Hall on the University of Colorado Boulder campus.

Admission to the gallery is free and open to the public, Monday–Friday, 10am–4:30pm and to ticketed patrons during Macky Auditorium performances and events.
