And Longing is Overthrown: Jason Lee Gimbel and Christopher R. Perez


October 19 - November 22, 2017

Please join ATC DEN in a works on paper show, And Longing is Overthrown, featuring two of Denver’s long time veterans in the Denver Art Scene, Jason Lee Gimbel and Christopher R. Perez. Jason Lee Gimbel’s charcoal figure drawings are classically informed and borrow from Greek mythology, classical sculpture and traditional figure drawing yet have a conceptual element to them that add a playful juxtaposition of these large scale drawings by added larger than life staples and magnets.

Perez’s photography is process-based and including Polaroids, photo-based printmaking, pinhole and toy cameras. Perez’s portraits use analog photographic processes from film to wet plate collidion to create contemporary unadorned portraits

Surfing the Lotus Thread: A Solo Exhibition by Melanie Ferguson

Melanie Ferguson - Sleeping With A Full Moon Blanket
Hand built stoneware, sgraffito, underglaze, metallic liner glaze, hand-rubbed coldwax finish - 16" x 11.5" x 9.5"

Join Tansey Contemporary for “Surfing the Lotus Threads” a solo exhibition of hand-built ceramic vessels from Melanie Ferguson. Ferguson’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, “Surfing the Lotus Threads” explores, using clay as a sculptural medium, the concept of five elemental themes: resonance and flow, light and shadow, story and perception, balance and strength, heart and spirit.

Ferguson describes, “Resonance can be felt in the echo flowing from within the center of form. Surface reflects the story of rhythm, repeating patterns, and the confusion of seemingly random lines that lead toward a concept of hiding within the holes of the lotus thread while witnessing a strength of spirit and heart that weaves a perception of that which we know. The result is an edge of uncertainty and vulnerability, balanced by the power to initiate a dialogue with our personal journey discovered within — a journey that invites pause and ultimately engages our next move.”

Las (H)adas

Featuring Judy Miranda, Ana María Hernando, Jessica Luna, Arlette Lucero, and Meggan De Anza

Museo de las Americas

October 12, 2017 - January 14, 2018

  • Opening reception: Thursday, October 12 from 6 - 9 pm
Museo de las Americas announces our fall exhibition, Las (H)adas, featuring site-specific installations by five Colorado Latina artists: Judy Miranda, Ana María Hernando, Jessica Luna, Arlette Lucero, and Meggan De Anza.

Las (H)adas explores cultural connections linked to the idea of identity and bicultural influences. Exploring this process unveils for us how far our postcolonial, consumerized mind has distanced itself from our humanity: sacred, magical, and divine.

In Spanish, las hadas means the fairies, but ‘adas’ is a suffix which signifies gender in an action verb. The title of the exhibit has two meanings. The artists featured are local fairy godmothers of Latino art and culture, but they are also ____-adas.

  • Opening Reception: Friday October 6th from 6-8pm at our new RiNo location
  • Please join us for cocktails & hors d'oeuvres
aaronzulpoAaron Zulpo - Train Robbery Scene 1, 2017, 27x36, oil on canvas

Brooklyn based artist Aaron Zulpo's self-proclaimed "Cartoon Realism" draws viewers into his work and engages and captivates. Aaron says he likes to think of narration as a fundamental way for people to make connections, especially when it comes to art and the ability to understand it. He engineers elaborate stories with altered dimensions of space to create visual problems for the viewer to solve. He says storytelling drives the composition of his paintings. There is always a specific theme throughout each piece; unknown danger, romance, or adventure and this is told through the division of space. See more work

For October 2017, Plinth Gallery is pleased to present “The Seductive Surface.”  This one month exhibition highlights work from the gallery as well as work from several new ceramic artists that exploit the unlimited possibilities of surface enhancement.

Jonathan Kaplan, Plinth Gallery Curator, notes that “decorative embellishments on pieces in this exhibition range from simple to highly complex. The 3-dimensional form becomes a canvas; the surface ornamentation strengthens the form; the lushness of glaze, color, and pigment invite touch, use, or inquiry.”

Kramer CaravanSuzanne Kramer, “Caravan”, oil on canvas,, 36 x 36” 2017

Tracey Russell explores the honesty, beauty and complexity of expressive, deliberate, and subconscious mark making in her show entitled, Modifiable Mark. Using wood panels, graphite and oil paint, and by spontaneously following suggestions of line, texture, and pattern, a hint or implication of a thought or experience is created.

Suzanne Kramer’s “Untamed” was inspired by a recent trip to Africa that was so transformative, she was compelled to explore the visual and emotional aspects of the experience on canvas.
