Ironton Studios and Gallery

December 12, 2014 - January 10, 2014

  • Opening Reception Friday December 12th, 6-10 pm

Please join us for the opening reception of More Than Friends on Friday December 12, 2014 at Ironton Studios in RiNo. More than Friends presents the work of 23 local artists who share studio space at TANK Studios in South Denver. TANK was founded in January of 2013 by nine local artists with the aim of creating a strong and sustainable community for working artists at all career levels. Today, just one year later, TANK has grown to host 22 artists working in a variety of media. The work shown here is a cross-section of the studio practices present at TANK, ranging from painting to digital media, collage to collaborative performance, sculpture to photography and video. While the subject matter, conceptual concerns, and media differ, the works reflect the open critical dialog that TANK fosters. TANK is more than a building, it is a community. And the artists of TANK are, in fact, more than friends; they are colleagues, supporters, collaborators, and instigators.

TANK Studios are Tyler Beard, Mindy Bray, Beau Carey, Amelia Carley, Jaime Carrejo, Theresa Clowes, Amber Cobb, Monique Crine, Heather Doyle-Maier, Tobias Fike, Ian Fisher, Matthew Harris, Conor King, Eric Portis, Adam Milner, Margaret Neumann, Gretchen Marie Schaefer, Laura Shill, Sarah Wallace Scott, Natasha Seideneck, Joel Swanson, Derrick Velasquez, & David Zimmer.

  • New Works inspired by or created out of wood, while others explore the theme "Ingrained"
  • Also on display: The Nkisi Project

About The Nkisi Project:

This collaborative installation project uses African Nkisi Nkondi statues as a point of departure. The Nkisi statues record actions and resolutions, and can act as a guardian or avenger of the community when activated with insertions by a spiritual specialist. The idea of recording community involvement and manifesting change is the main inspiration taken from Nkisi. By creating our own power figure installation, our community, its hopes and actions, are manifested via the insertion of individually made ritual objects.

PARTICIPATING ARTISTS: John Babcock, Regina Benson, Tammi Brazee, Carol Browning, Lydia Brokaw, Jaime Carrejo, Amber Cobb, Patricia Coronel, Suzanne Faris, Ashley Frazier, Sara Goldenberg-White, Laura Grossett, Anne Hallam, Kendall Harper, Anna Hultin, Tressa Jones, Mary-Ann Kokoska, Marius Lehene, D.B.

Gallery 1261: Quang Ho and Vincent Xeus

Quang Ho and Vincent Xeus

East and East: Alternative Visions

Gallery 1261

December 12, 2014 - January 24, 2014

  • Opening Reception: Friday, December 12th 6-9pm
Vincent Xeus  Show Business  Oil, 32 x 48"
Vincent Xeus - Show Business - Oil, 32 x 48"

Quang Ho’s works have declared themselves an indispensable part of the contemporary art landscape. He places the mastery of “basic visual elements” at the center of his endeavor, embedding wordless intuition and inspiration. The last time audiences were treated with a large-scale Quang Ho exhibition was in 2009. East and East – Alternative Visions includes some 20 new works from him, most of which have not been on display. In the last several years, master veteran artist Quang Ho has used a wide variety of styles and impulses to develop new visual ideas and concepts such as “figures in empty space” and the “concept of weightlessness”. His latest highly charged, stylistically disparate work includes floating nudes, disappearing still life, and glazed monotone head studies. These works are united by a singular approach – momentary explorations.

Xeus earned widespread fame through his enigmatic, emotionally compelling figurative works. With astonishing sensibility, Xeus examines and visually transforms contrasting human emotions and experiences. He is producing near 15 new works for the exhibition. This group of paintings brings together two significant strands of Xeus’ identity, his Chinese cultural heritage and his constant desire to test traditions. Known for his Old Masters-like capabilities and daring visions, Xeus often dislocates and alters familiar imagery to “break conventional barriers” and to create “instinctive connection with the essence” of his paintings. Born in post-cultural-revolution China, Xeus witnessed drastic political and social transformations. From serene to precarious, Xeus frequently challenges the notion of time and subjectivity by sampling motifs across time in a single painting. The full arc of Vincent Xeus’ creativity and diversity is on display in this exhibition: from elegant Flemish-inspired portrait to technically and iconographically complex large format paintings, in which genres and styles intermingle, transform and collide.

East and East – Alternative Visions offers a rare opportunity to examine one of Quang Ho and Vincent Xeus’ greatest legacies in common – their powers of observation and invention.

Zeren Badar - Very First Accident

In the spirit of the theme, I maintained a level of openness, and gathered works that, to me, felt curious, attentive, vital, or eager. This includes images that are deeply personal and emotional, experimental or conceptual, story-based documentaries reflecting a social or political climate, as well as everything in between (or beyond). - Shane Lavalette

Dennis Rosenfeld: A Dream of Temporary Space


December 7 - 31, 2014

  • Opening Reception: Sunday, December 7, at 7pm; the opening will also feature a reading by Kameron Bashi

About the installation: A suitcase, a cardboard packing box, a curtain that divides a room, a laptop beside an air mattress, an overturned table, or a well-worn pair of shoes—the objects and materials used by Dennis Rosenfeld directly reference the temporary, the makeshift, and the transient. Combining packing materials, household furniture, video projection and computer graphics, these installations evoke memories of travel and the instability of youth, expressing a longing both for some kind of idealized sense of home, and also for the beginning of the next journey.

Dennis Rosenfeld is a Canadian artist and technology specialist currently living in San Francisco. His work spans a range of media including painting, sculpture, photography, video, electronics, and software. He holds a master’s degree from UCLA’s Design/Media Arts program and has been involved in new media projects for galleries, institutions and festivals across the USA and Canada including Zero1 Biennial, UCLA New Wight Gallery, CAM Raleigh, Surrey Art Gallery, Vancouver Art Gallery and the Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad. Much of his work can be characterized by an interest in the social and cultural effects of technology, the experience of global mobility, and life in the 21st century.

Kameron Bashi was born in 1982 in the middle of America and has since lived on both coasts and in semi-rural Germany. He returned to study writing at the University of Maryland and Brown University, and is currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Denver. His first novel, tentatively titled The Following March, explores the magical qualities of intergenerational love, passenger airlines, queerness, whiteness, death, and dogs.

Vantage Points: New work by Charles Parson & Collin Parson

  • Opening Reception with the artists: Thursday, December 4th, 6-9pm

Artists Charles Parson and son Collin Parson have set their sights on Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe Drive with a new, shared exhibition Vantage Points at Mai Wyn Fine Art. Organized in conjunction with the two artists’ massive concurrent solo exhibitions on view now at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center, Vantage Points brings Charles and Collin's work together into one show. Join the artists for the Opening Reception: Thursday, December 4th from 6-9pm. Mai Wyn Fine Art. 744 Santa Fe Dr. Denver.

The gallery space at Mai Wyn Fine Art provides an intimate setting to bring both artists’ monumental work down to scale and side by side for further consideration. Charles Parson is most known for his large scale, steeple-like sculptures made from steel I-beams, plate and pipe visibly fashioned together with nuts, bolts and other industrial findings. Collin Parson creates more atmospheric, light-based works utilizing halogen lighting, fiberboard, plexiglass and now mirror. In addition to their shared affinity for industrial materials, both Parsons employ iconic geometries and purposeful color to portray a sense of time, space and spiritual solitude. While abstract, both their work draws heavily on the individual experience of the American West.

Charles Parson, a prolific sculptor with over 70 one-person shows, presents all new work at Mai Wyn Fine Art. Derivative of the grand scaled, spite specific works included in Colorado Springs, there are drawings, tabletop sculptures and a few select freestanding, garden-scaled works. Collin Parson presents a collection of his signature “lightscape” pieces minimally selected to compliment his father’s work. ¬¬ ¬On curating Vantage Points, gallery owner Mai Wyn Schantz admits there were definite challenges showing both artists work together. “Collin prefers almost black-out conditions to present his work. Fortunately in daylight his art is more about subtle shifts in light and the art object itself, which is where we really sense a common thread with his father’s work.”

In the Denver art community Charles Parson and Collin Parson are both forces to be reckoned with. Charles Parson exhibits extensively in a wide variety of venues including a recent show at Z Gallery. In addition he is also a mentor and educator currently teaching at Denver Community College. Collin Parson is the Exhibition Manager and Curator for the Art Galleries at the Arvada Center for the Arts & Humanities. He is an artist-in-residence at Redline and member of Pirate Gallery. Collin is represented locally by Michael Warren Contemporary.

Daisy Patton: Forgetting is so long

December 2 - 31, 2014

  • Opening Reception, Thursday December 4 (6-9pm)
  • First Friday Reception, December 5 (6-9pm)
  • Third FridayReception, December 19 (6-9pm)
Michael Warren Contemporary (MWC) presents Daisy Patton’s mixed media paintings in the front gallery

Daisy Patton - photo by Ken Hamel/DenverArts.org

In Forgetting is so long, Patton collects abandoned, anonymous family photographs, enlarge them past their familiar size, and paints over them. Patton paints to disrupt, to reimagine, to re-enliven these individuals until she can either no longer recognize them or their presence is too piercing to continue. Not alive but not quite dead, each person’s newly imagined and altered portrait straddles the lines between memory, identity, and death.

Patton received her BFA from the University of Oklahoma (2005) and her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Tufts University (2011); she currently resides in Denver, Colorado and is currently in residence at Redline and working on concurrent series including “Deterioration” in which she details the progression of Multiple Sclerosis on her brain.

During the month of December, MWC will also showcase many of the gallery artists in a group-show format throughout the gallery. Additionally, MWC consigns Riverhouse Editions, an extensive collection of fine art prints from career artists practicing all over the world.

  • Opening Reception: Friday December 5th from 2-6pm

Stop by to see new works by contemporary acrylic painter Hilario Gutierrez, Friday December 5th from 2-6 p.m. at SmithKlein Gallery. Hilario believes in order to successfully create a piece of art, he must seek out and interpret all the influences that pass through his conscious and subconscious self. These influences, what he calls the ethereal chaos of his spirit, allow him an endless flow of creativity and give his art authority and truthfulness. Hilario's show will continue through the end of the month.
