It Was Her - It Is And Forever Will Be, is an exploratory series of paintings, drawings, and mixed-media by Lio Bumba and collaborators. It is a study into the artist self assessment of woman in society and the male gaze. The study is greatly influenced by the works of past mid-century male artists namely Otto Mueller, Matisse and Picasso. Further reference to mention is the influence of performative artists Yvonne Rainer and Isadora Duncan, who’s inspiring works and activism played a key role in setting the tone for the creations on display.

Lio Bumba, Lio is a self taught artist who boldly envisions the modern American experience in swaths of bright folk imagery, undoubtedly, inspired by his African descent but driven by current events and politics. His works range between paintings, drawings, mixed-media to performative art installations.

Kelsie: "Retro death meets Portals to a New Vision: Experiments in Mixed Media"

The Garage @ Bitfactory (851 Santa Fe Drive in Denver)

One Night Only: First Friday, October 4, 2019

TheRescue“The Rescue” - 48” X 64” - Mixed media on stretched canvas

Kelsie Young aka The Glitter Freckle aka The Artist Kelsie, burst onto the Denver’s art scene in the late 90’s expressing herself through painting, sculpture, and spiritual study. She was most well-known for her exquisite face and bodypainting, sharing her gifts everywhere from the club scene, fashion shows, and St. Patrick’s Day parades of Denver, to a national 22 city tour. She became a regular presence painting faces at The Wizard’s Chest for Halloween and the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, through the early 2000’s.

After a several-year Hiatus from the public eye, The Artist Kelsie is re-emerging with an evolved sense of self, connection to her creative community, and vision for her current and future work. She is thrilled to share her new, multidimensional art at a one-night pop-up exhibit on First Friday October 4th, 2019 6-9 pm, in The Garage at Bitfactory, in the back of 851 Santa Fe Drive. Throughout the evening, visitors will be able to purchase art and merchandise and enjoy connective entertainment along with several, looped video tutorials showcasing the creative process in collaboration with Paul Peregrine and his team at Peregrine Studios in Denver.

In Kelsie’s new works she explores a range of paint combinations, techniques, and subject matter. "What I use to create a piece completely depends on the piece and its own voice in the creative process. Acrylic, oils, ink, enamel, and sometimes other stuff too. “My goal is that when your eyes meet a work, you will feel it.”

In addition to the pop-up show’s themed works, Kelsie will be exhibiting her piece “The Rescue”. Produced using her exclusive “paint-cutting” technique, this 48" x 64" mixed media on stretched canvas features a horse and rider in a surreal Colorado front range landscape. Her intention is to raise awareness of the Dumb Friend’s League (DFL) equestrian rescue program and she will be donating all of the funds from thesale of this artwork to the DFL. Founded in 1910, the Dumb Friends League, based in Denver, Colorado, is the largest independent, nonprofit community-based animal shelter/humane society in the Rocky Mountain region, caring annually for as many as 20,000 lost and relinquished pets, as well as hundreds of equines.

Kelsie Young (aka The Artist Kelsie) is a diverse multi-media artist that resides in Lakewood, Colorado. She creates mixed media fine art, body art, photography, and experimental performance art. For more information about her latest projects or to order a custom print, please visit

The Lyons Arts & Humanities Commission seeks your partnership to build a new public artwork, The Bell of Renewal, by master, Colorado-based artists James G. Moore and Anita Miller. All donations are welcome and tax deductible. With a donation of $250 donation or more your name or company name will be added to a bronze plaque posted near the artwork. Tax deductible donations can be made via, in person at Lyons Town Hall, or Western Stars Gallery & Studio

Deadline: Monday July 1, 2019 to have your name listed on the plaque

The Lyons Arts & Humanities Commission seeks your support to build a unique public artwork memorializing the history of Lyons, the flood, and our flourishing community. The Bell of Renewal, by master, Colorado-based artists James Moore and Anita Miller, consists of a bell and stand. The stand depicts a a great horned owl building a nest, and the bell features design elements from nature in relief. The bell beautifully depicts the nature in which Lyons thrives, memorializing the tragedy and pain of the flood. The stand represents renewal through the symbolism of the building of the nest.

The bell will be approximately sixteen inches by 20 inches (16” x 20”), and will suspend beneath the owl, which will be positioned as flying past a stand of young cottonwood trees that serves as the support for the sculpture. The sculpture will stand approximately eight feet in height by four feet width by three feet in diameter (8’ H x 4’ W x 3’ d). It will be constructed of cast bronze. The sculpture will be installed along the river, in an appropriate, safe, and enduring location in the Town of Lyons.

The Bell will be added to the heARTS of Lyons Outdoor Public Art Collection as a Legacy artwork - a permanent piece of public art in the Town’s collection.

The Town of Lyons is offering significant financial support, as well as the members of the Lyons Arts & Humanities Commission, and the artists themselves. But, we need your donations to bring this public artwork to fruition.

All donations are welcome and tax deductible. With a donation of $250 donation or more your name, "in recognition/memory of" designee, or company name will be added to a bronze plaque posted near the artwork. The deadline is July 1, 2019 to have your name listed on the plaque. All donations $250 will receive acknowledgement on our Facebook page.

James Moore has been working professionally in bronze for the last 22 years. After a 15 year career as a middle and high school art teacher, James made a leap of faith to make his passion for sculpting into his full time career. His award-winning work is now in public and private collections across the United States, Mexico, and Europe. James participates in many shows and is represented by several galleries. He lives in the rural town of Eaton, Colorado. James spends much of his leisure time enjoying the outdoors and observing the animals and natural environment that are so inspirational to his work. Learn more at

James G. Moore assisted by Anita Miller. Anita Miller moved to Lyons in 2016 and felt the ripples of the flood as she heard her neighbors speak of the historic and life-changing event. The artist, who has her own history of creating memorial artwork, imagined a symbol of hope and renewal to honor Lyons’ recovery which she and her family now enjoy. Anita believed the work of James G. Moore best captures the spirit of renewal, so they have partnered to create the one-of-a-kind sculpture. Anita's work can be seen in the The Eyes of Freedom: Lima Company Memorial project, in which she combined her painting and sculpture artwork into an artistic memorial of the Lima Company tragedies of 2005. The memorial travels nationally as a memorial and educational tool. Learn more at

Mary Mackey - Many Faces, 2019

Mary Mackey: "Mixed Media and Mud" 

This work has all been produced since opening my new gallery and studio, called Urban Mud, in July. So some of the work could still be warm from the kiln, not really but just thought I’d throw that in there. My first thoughts for this show is the vessel form. Since starting clay in earnest about 3 years ago, I have been fascinated with the 3 dimensionality of clay sculpture. The vessel is just a name for any form whether it be useful or not. Some of mine are water tight and can be used to hold liquid, but most are not and therefore just pure sculpture. I’ve decided to do some drawings and works on paper of the vessel form, to add the 2-D which is something I’ve done most of my life. Enjoy and thanks for your interest in my work.

“...noiseless foot of time”

Virginia Folkestad Solo Exhibit

Sandra Phillips Gallery

April 12 - June 1, 2019

  • Opening Reception: Friday April 12th from 6 - 8 pm
The Gallery is honored to present a solo exhibition for conceptual artist Virginia Folkestad. “Landscapes like time never stands still” was the starting point for this Installation “...noiseless foot of time” with materials and form developing over a long period of time. Over that long period of time, the artist worked intuitively, always with the initial concept in mind. As the work evolved with its many changes, the initial concept remained the same and is a visible part of the work. This Installation has been made specifically for the Sandra Phillips Gallery with each wall having work that is related, while at the same time relating conceptually as a total body of work. The work at the same time hints at the mystery, or rather, elusiveness of time and how it is measured both physically and emotionally.
