templeHidden Links: Exploring Jewish Identity

The Temple

September 21 - November 20, 2015

  • Gallery Reception: Thursday October 8 from 5-8pm
  • $5/person, includes Hamsa making and refreshments
New York artists Cynthia Beth Rubin and Yona Verwer Exhibit a varied series of Jewish-themed works. They will exhibit works created together and separately, demonstrating how very different paths led each artist to an exploration of Jewish history and heritage that naturally culminated in a collaborative works. Working together as interpreters of history and heritage as they, photograph, document, represent, and weave together the stories of the past and the present.

The resulting collaborative works are presented as canvas banners, incorporating painterly digital imagery and physical acrylic paint. The banners are conceptually layered with augmented reality, drawing upon interviews with residents and experts from the neighborhood.

These works draw on both Rubin’s and Verwer’s earlier cultural heritage work, which will be exhibited alongside the collaborative works.

Rubin describes her work as an investigation of the threads of cultural memory which comes from some place beyond the individual. She is interested in how cultural traditions collide and merge, and how this is embedded in all of us. New technology has expanded her visual vocabulary, and all of her work, both video and still imagery, is now produced through the computer. Rubin’s imagery grows from the affinity between her life as a contemporary American, and what she regards as her heritage. Although much of her work focuses on Eastern European Jewish culture, many other cultural legacies have touched her work as well. Recently she has incorporated imagery from the environment, particularly the microscopic world, in revealing the hidden world that impacts our environment. Rubin is a pioneer in implementing the new technology of Augmented Reality to engage the viewer in a conceptual dialogue with artistically mediated artwork and microscopic life, echoing the experience of awe that has long been nearly exclusively the realm of the scientist.

Verwer’s work reflects her background of coming to Jewish observance later on in life, by considering the cultural zones in which she has lived. In combining the imagery of the Jewish past with the role she plays in America today, she is making a new art inspired by Torah, Kabbalah and pop-culture. Her City Charms series is based on Jewish architecture; their talisman aspects invoke protection from acts of destruction on buildings, particularly terror-watch-list targets. Her panels depicting interiors of Lower East Side synagogues capture this neighborhood’s Jewish diversity. Her Kabbala of Bling series comments on the appropriation of Kabbala by pop icons. As Ori Z. Soltes wrote: “Verwer’s Kabbalah of Bling series is intended to merge the deeply spiritual with the banal. “Kabbalah” and “Bling” should ordinarily be mutually contradictory”

Mizel: Nina Molk

Portraits of our Times by Nina Molk

Mizel Museum Rotating Gallery

October 15 - 29, 2015

  • Opening reception Thursday, October 15 from 5-8pm

With exceptional skill and in an expressive style, Nina Molk draws in charcoal pencil, portraits of personalities. With a mother who is an artist and a sculptor, and Nina’s own background in fine arts at CU and commercial art at Colorado Institute of Art, Nina Molk is a regular student in Boris Shoshensky’s class at the Mizel Museum regularly and has been part of Denver’s Jewish community for more than fifty years.

Nina says, “My goal is to bring the personality of the person I am drawing to life. I want you to look at the drawing and not be able to just walk away. The faces draw you in and require you to linger for just a while with them. I believe I have accomplished this in my drawings.”

RULE Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of its new location in Marfa, Texas. This will be RULE's second permanent space, expanding from its primary location in Denver, Colorado. The grand opening of RULE Gallery Marfa, located at 204 E. San Antonio St. Marfa, TX 79843, will be on October 9, 2015 with an inaugural exhibition entitled Stuff Like Air featuring new work by Joseph Coniff. The show will run through December 5, 2015.

Stuff Like Air, an exhibition of work by Joseph Coniff, debuts concurrently with the grand opening on October 9, and will be on view through December 5, 2015. The exhibition includes de- and re- constructed, tailored fabric works, as well as smaller works on paper. The tailored fabric works explore Coniff's reaction to the assumed dichotomies within a binary worldview, focusing on the perceptual possibilities inherent in relationships such as the figure and the ground. Coniff challenges the polarities of these relationships and looks with equanimity on what we might consider the foreground and the background, and the "empty" space between. Through these works, Coniff views the broken pattern as a line at which we can awake from malaise and gain a greater understanding of being.

About: Joseph Coniff earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in 2011. He has been included in New American Paintings, Creative Quarterly, Studio Visit Magazine, and Vogue Espana. Coniff was listed as one of Denver's 2012 Top Up-and-Coming Artists and was featured as one of Denver Westword's 100 Colorado Creatives in 2014. He has received two Denver Westword Best of awards, both for RULE Gallery solo exhibitions, the first in 2012, and the second in 2014. Coniff’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in Denver, New York, Los Angeles, and Berlin.

Dateline: Mickey Boyd

Manifest Memory featuring Mickey Boyd


October 2 - 29, 2015

  • Opening: Friday October 2nd, 7pm

Manifest Memory (DATELINE 018) consists of objects crafted by hand and incorporated with found materials. Through these objects Boyd explores his upbringing in the American West utilizing essential parts of his personal recollections of the people, events, and things in his life. There are remembrances that are more influential than others while some are merely small moments that Boyd feels are worth a more personal investigation. Either way, these memories explore the associations tied to youth that can be characteristics that connect with all ages of human life. Through these works, Boyd explores and recreates life in the contemporary American West in relation to the consciousness of adolescence.

In describing Manifest Memory Boyd states, “There is a certain amount of growth that I have accepted as basic and crucial, however I have felt a constant need to not grow, retaining some child-like nature is very important to my outlook on life.” The intense autonomy and rabid individualism born from these life events becomes apparent, as Boyd explores the outcome of these forces upon his identity as a contemporary artist in the American West.

Mickey Boyd was born in the Bay Area of California, but moved to the Front Range of Colorado early in his life. He was born the youngest in a blended family of four boys. Living on a ranch in the plains of central Colorado provided an essential understanding and love of the vast amount of space that exists in the American West. The experience of working in his fathers shop and the appreciation of the great blue sky over his family home provides the foundation for the work that he makes today.

Leon: Clearly

fasten; join together by Clearly... aka Tina Chavera


October 3 – 31, 2015

  • Opening Reception: Saturday October 3rd from 7-10pm
Clearly - Street Art Installation - Alpaca Furs, Natural Dyes - 2015

To fasten is to join together; an action that the artist has been using to crochet natural fibers into dread-locked pieces that are then carefully placed and positioned into the environment. As a process that is designed to mat single strands of hair into larger and stronger “locks”, it is also a symbol for something greater than what is perceived. It becomes a commitment, a journey, and it bonds those who have shared the process of altering themselves. Through shared experience this transformation transcends race, class, geographic areas, gender, and even species. This project is only made possible through the support of the dread community and donations from local alpaca farmers.

Drawing heavily from her street art background, Clearly (aka Tina Chavera) will transform Leon into an interactive installation with large scale sculpture, using alpaca furs, wheat paste, turmeric, and tape to create two opposing landscapes: a desert and an ocean.

Clearly Bio:

Clearly (b.1981) is a street artist who has contributed a multidisciplinary approach to art in public places since 2005. She was born in Dallas, TX and has spent the last 8 years in Denver, CO. The artist’s real name is Tina Chavera, and she received her BA in Fine Arts from the University of Colorado at Denver in 2013. In 2015 she completed her MFA in Art Practice at the School of Visual Arts in NYC.

She works predominantly with stencils, photographic wheat pastes, and fiber, but also large scale installations and sculptural elements. Her works have been featured at REVERSE in Brooklyn, the SVA Chelsea Gallery in Manhattan, and the Harlem Art Factory Festival, as well as Mary Weather Gallery in Oakland, CA, SprATX Collective in Austin, TX, and the Deep Ellum Arts Festival in Dallas, TX.She is included in the Artist’s Collection at the Denver Public Library and has been featured on the pilot episode of “Broad City” on Comedy Central. Tina has also had the great opportunity to work with the artist Swoon and her studio on both “Motherlands” for Galerie LJ in Paris, and “Submerged Motherlands” for the Brooklyn Museum in New York.

Evan Anderman Photography: Progressions I

  • Opening Reception: Friday, October 2 from 6-9pm
  • Also open First Friday, November 6 from 6-9pm
Evan Anderman
Evan Anderman - Standing Water Fort Morgan CO

There is a certain rhythm to the Eastern Plains of Colorado that moves at a pace largely invisible to most people with modern lives. Fields are planted, crops grow, mature and are harvested; leaving the ground to lie fallow before being turned under as the growing season begins again. Intuitively we know this is happening, but do not have the ability to see it firsthand. These photographs of farmer's fields, taken over a span of years, allow the viewer to study the beauty of these cycles and feel the rhythms and, in turn, to understand more about what is happening on the Eastern Plains.

About: Evan Anderman is a social-landscape photographer based in his hometown of Denver, Colorado who shoots mostly from his airplane. In his youth Anderman spent a great deal of time in the mountains and plains of Colorado and the Western United States. This love of the land eventually led Anderman to pursue the earth sciences as a career and he obtained several degrees in Geological Engineering. After working nearly two decades in the field, Anderman took his love for the landscape and pursued his passion for photography to become a full-time artist in 2005.

Anderman is especially attracted to less-traveled, and often barren areas such as Eastern Colorado, the high deserts and forests of the Western United States, Antarctica, Iceland and the Arctic. He finds peace in the solitude that these places offer, and is empowered to rise to the challenge of portraying these landscapes with optimism.

Anderman’s work can be found in the Denver Art Museum collection and in several private collections as well. In addition to exhibiting in his own gallery, Anderman’s work has been exhibited at the American Mountaineering Center, Denver International Airport, Carmen Wiedenhoeft Gallery, The State Capitol, The Denver Art Museum, Niza Knoll Gallery, and Robischon Gallery all in Denver, CO, as well as Lamont Gallery in Exeter, NH.

Plinth: Harris Deller

Harris Deller: New Ceramic Work

Plinth Gallery

October 2 - November 28, 2015

  • Opening Reception: First Friday, October 2, from 6-9pm
Harris Deller at Plinth

Deller limits his visual vocabulary using primarily black pigment on white porcelain clay. Some recent work has more color inlayed on the suface in addition to his use of black. He makes vessels that he refers to “provocative contradictions.” Deller exploits the dimensional qualities by purposely minimizes depth, or that third dimension. Constructed from slabs of porcelain clay, they appear to contain a full volume but as the piece is fully viewed, we see that he has altered our perception by flattening the form, in what he refers to as ”abstracted forms with the third dimension suppressed in varying degrees.”

There is also an anthropomorphic quality in his work that relates to “stance, gesture and stride.” These human references are derivative of ceramic terminology, such as the base of a vessel being a “foot, the top edge being a lip, and the surface embellishment often noted as “skin or clothing.” Human activity has historically included pottery making and in all cultures, has always been about containment, a necessity for preservation of essential foods and drink. Deller’s ceramic work continues the idea of containment.

Niza Knoll: Wax Stories

Wax Stories: Juried by Collin Parson

Niza Knoll Gallery

October 2 - November 13, 2015

  • Artist’s reception: Saturday, October 10, 4-7pm
Elizabeth Morisette - Digest Installation

Niza Knoll Gallery presents “Wax Stories” a juried exhibition of encaustic art featuring local and regional artists. The Encaustic painting technique uses a wax based paint composed of beeswax, resin and pigment, which is kept molten on a heated palette, applied to an absorbent surface and then reheated in order to fuse the paint. This technique dates back to the Greeks, who caulked their ships hulls with wax and later added pigment to add decorative elements to their war ships. It was also used to honor the dead through Funery portraits, some of which survived since ancient times. It came back into popularity in the 20th century with the availability of heating tools that make the process less laborious. This technique produces pieces with depth and, transparency and allows the artist plenty of versatility in their creations.

The following artists were juried into this exhibit: Guy Baldovi, Carolyn Berry, Margaret Berry, Marina Brownlow, Michelle Fisher, Jo Fitsell, Susan Gibbons, Alane Holsteen, Pat Isaacs, Meg Voigt Meersman, Michele Messenger, Susan Metzger, Mary Meyer, Elizabeth Morisette,Grace Noe, Lisa Purdy, Suzannah Reid, Kim Roberts, Lisa Schaewe, Paula Schmitt, Debbie Taylor, Harriette Tsosie, Roxanne Turner and Robin Zagurski.

The Wax Stories exhibition was juried by Collin Parson, Artist, Exhibition Manager and Chief Curator for the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities in Arvada, Colorado. Collin received a B.F.A. in Theater Design and Technology with emphasis in Lighting and Scene Design from the University of Colorado at Boulder and has his M.A. in Visual Culture and Arts Administration from Regis University in Denver. His creative work involves the control of light and color to create vivid geometric light and space works. He has had the privilege of jurying many art festivals including Cherry Creek and has received many awards for his curatorial projects. A member of Denver’s historic Pirate: Contemporary Art and an artist-in-residence at RedLine Denver he was awarded 100 Colorado Creative’s by Westword in 2013. http://collinparson.com

Andrea T. Kemp: Luminous

Saks Galleries

October 2 - 31, 2015

"Beacon", Andrea T. Kemp, Oil, 2015

Collectors have observed a connection between the paintings of Andrea Kemp and the 17th century Dutch masters. The play of light, attention to skin tones and details of the environment were guiding principles in the works of important artists such as Vermeer and de Hooch. However, Kemp’s paintings are also distinctively modern in composition and subject.

The luminosity of her work informs us of her deep love and acceptance of the individuals she portrays.

Gary Kim: In the Spirit

Evergreen Fine Art Gallery

October 3 - 31, 2015

  • Opening Reception and Gallery Talk: Saturday, October 3, 2015, 2-5pm
Kim SkyHigh5 4860
Gary Kim - Sky High 5, 48x60, oil

For nationally acclaimed oil painter Gary Kim, faithfully portraying a subject is only the beginning. Starting on Oct. 3, guests to his Evergreen Fine Art Gallery exhibit “In the Spirit” will quickly discover that Kim’s passion, and his gift, is revealing the secret heart and hidden vitality that pulses just beneath the surface of all Creation. “I hope guests can enjoy the outer beauty of my paintings,” says Kim, “and their inner beauty, as well.”

Possessing a bachelor’s degree in fine art and a master’s in advertising design, Kim left his native South Korea in 1999 and settled in New York, where he earned a master’s in art from Brooklyn’s prestigious Pratt Institute and soon became one of the Empire State’s most sought-after portrait artists. In 2011 he moved palette and easel south and west and began applying his perceptive eye and nimble brush to the Land of Enchantment.

“When I watched Western movies when I was a child, I gained the impression of the West as a beautiful, romantic and brave frontier,” Kim says. “Ever since I moved to Santa Fe, I couldn’t contain my curiosity about its spiritual culture and gratitude towards nature.”

Kim is perhaps best and justly renowned for his aspen trees. While many artists find inspiration in the West’s iconic softwood, few can match Kim’s breathtaking portrayals. Each leaf and limb, tree and grove, seems to quake on the canvas, and by his almost mystical command of color and value one might believe his paintings could cast sunlight into a darkened room. “I try to convey the light they give off in such a way that would make their souls wake.” “I want people to feel their hearts fluttering as they view my art.”

Visions West: Adonna Khare and Hacer

Playing with Matches: Adonna Khare and Hacer

Visions West Gallery

October 2 - November 5, 2015

  • Artist's Reception: Friday October 2nd at 6pm
Play With Matches, pencil on paper, 15x11

Using paper as an initial starting point, artists, Adonna Khare and Hacer, take us back to childhood. Hacer, brilliantly morphs oversized brightly colored origami animals into impressive metal sculptures and Adonna imaginatively draws Princess chimpanzees, elk-eating sharks and pool playing tigers and zebras that are stand-ins for life experiences. A castle-bearing elephant may playfully symbolize carrying the weight of the world around or a shark trying to eat an elk with trees for horns could signify feeling like a fish out of water. The absurdities of life are captured as eloquently as words in Adonna's work.

Adonna was awarded the $200,000.00 Art Prize in 2012, which allowed her to return to art full time. Her work can be found in many museums and private collections including Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, AK.

Hacer's cheerful origami pieces belie his struggle and escape from a childhood of abandonment, abuse and violence. As a young boy he was introduced to origami in an art class. He quickly became adept at the Japanese paper folding art. However, he was pulled away from art into a gang lifestyle by foster parents, who forced him to spray paint territorial boundaries around their neighborhood. But art would pull him back eventually as the spray paint boundaries morphed into graffiti tagging. This direction found focus when it intersected with the soaring, red-orange, sixty foot, metal faces of Alexander Calder's, "The Four Arches" downtown Los Angeles. Transfixed by its bold monumentality, Hacer stood silently gazing upward for hours. Picking up his first metal sheet [with the intent to transform it into a Calder-like maquette], Hacer's hands instinctively began to fold the compound plains of an origami crane. Instantly reconnected to that brief feeling of empowerment from childhood. The street graffiti artist's work migrated from the walls of the back alleys of East LA to Santa Monica Bvld.

DIA: Arts of Jomon

"Arts of Jomon" Showcases Japanese History

Denver International Airport

September 25 - November 30, 2015

  • Curated by Taketo Kobayashi

Denver International Airport’s (DIA) newest temporary art exhibition, Arts of Jomon, showcases Japanese history in Ansbacher Hall (the walkway before the A Bridge-security checkpoint) and the Terminal Gallery located on Level 5 of Jeppesen Terminal. The exhibition, on display through November 2015, is a contemporary artistic response to the culture of Japan’s Neolithic period and features work by multiple artists in a variety of mediums including clay, 3-D printing and acrylic painting. The Terminal Gallery features video work and a site-specific mural to celebrate the ties between Japan and Colorado made possible through United’s nonstop service between Tokyo and Denver.

According to Curator Taketo Kobayashi, Arts of Jomon will expose visitors to a fascinating time in Japanese history. The Jomon era lasted around 10,000 years (approximately 10,500 to 300 BCE) and is considered to be one of the oldest recorded cultures in the world. A variety of contemporary artists have responded to ancient pottery and figures in a modern way. In addition, viewers are invited to observe the similarities between Native American culture, a rich aspect of Colorado’s history and Jomon culture.

In addition to the exhibition at DIA, several of the artists were in town creating a mural for the City of Denver’s Urban Arts Fund in August. In September, this exhibit ties into live performances titled, Mystical Abyss, a multidisciplinary work inspired by Japanese and Iroquois creation myths. Part dance, part theatre, part computer generated animation, Mystical Abyss is presented by Theatre of Yugen in association with Cleo Parker Robinson Dance with generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts and United Airlines.

Curator Taketo Kobayashi Statement

Although Jomon is a Japanese culture, this is also a universal message of peace for all the world. This culture lasted such a long time because it was based on sharing and tolerance.

About DIA’s Art and Culture Program

DIA’s Art and Culture Program administers the City and County of Denver’s “one percent for art” ordinance which enhances public places and features nearly 30 site-specific works including sculptures, murals and other installations. The pieces are displayed in outdoor landscapes, inside Jeppesen Terminal and on airport concourses, as well as in the train tunnels and on the train itself. In addition to its permanent art collection, DIA curates temporary exhibitions, collaborating with museums, cultural institutions and arts organizations to present the highest quality two- and three-dimensional work.
