Craig Robb - A Fractious Embrace

Robb’s work for this show is the product of his recent exploration into light and how it can be manipulated into his art. How it can be just another element within a sculpture or how the art focuses in on the light. His work is normally very metaphorical in nature and reflects his varied opinions about the world he lives in. This body of work is more formal in presentation but works within how he tends transform the immediate environment that the art viewer exists in. How their perceptions of the space can be affected.

Brenda LaBier | Ritual of Breath, 2018 | 60 x 36" | mixed media

In my journey to comprehend and express my evolving life and identity, I have embraced the three marks of existence, inconstant, transient and evanescent. Depicted in Transitory Rituals, earth, air and water act as transitory elements, a transformation from one state of the self to the next which may be fleeting, volatile or fading.

There is the belief that all things are in constant change and temporal, including the self. To understand this impermanence is to accept that people come and go, material possessions are gained and lost and moments become fragments of memories.

The images themselves stretch time, holding the elements in an inert state allowing for an extended view of the pending change. Combined, the relationship between images, symbols and objects construct meaning, both intimate and universal. The essence is transformed, healed and emancipated; the cycle is an act of renewal.

Stained and Manipulated

GreggHarkenrider KualaLumpur
Gregg Harkenrider ‐ Kuala Lumpur

Gregg Harkenrider is new to the gallery. This will be his first exhibition with Bitfactory. Harkenrider has shown at other galleries in the area including Artwork Network. Perle is coming off her stellar showing at her first exhibit with Bitfactory in December, Some Assembly Required. Where she exhibited new pieces along with two other artists and being included in the second annual No Show at Bitfactory along with 13 other artists.

Harkenrider works with glass, metal, LED and epoxy to create visually stunning stained glass images of cityscapes from all around the world. Each one being back light with a programmable LED array. Perle is creating all new works for the exhibit. She digitally manipulates photographs she has taken.

She then has them printed on canvas and paints and collages over the images. Creating a very unique mixture of digital and analog art. Gregg Harkenrider paints with glass, and tends to blend elements together that are normally opposed to each other. His designs encompass elements that require thought and planning. Each piece must reflect light as well as transmit backlighting. He says he's found that using reflective light as well as transmitted light adds three dimensional elements that make the piece look real.

Perle has learned from local fine artist Ravi Zupa and world renown digital artist Android Jones and has studied art and design for a decade. She looks for inspiration in the natural world, in feelings, in touch, in sound, in emotion, and in sight. She integrates emotions & nature with the technological world into images that evoke something ethereal & otherworldly.

Walker Fine Art

March 16 - May 5, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Friday March 16th from 5-9pm
A vantage point does not have to be the actual point which we are looking from; nor something limited to a spatial region. Rather, a viewpoint is a position from which something is observed or considered, the mental attitude that determines a person’s opinions or judgements. This exhibit offers viewers an opportunity to reconsider their own point of view through artworks that combine invented environments, the natural world, and the symbolism of everyday of objects. These artists present works from a personal perspective, allowing viewers to transform the meanings from their unique vantage point.

Pink Progression, features over forty notable Colorado artists whose artwork is inspired by the 2017 and 2018 historic, women's march. During the marches, pink created a strong visual statement representing unity and empowerment. Artists incorporate or reject this hue as it reflects manifestations of personal, social, and gender connections.

Pink Progression includes all gender identities and expressions. Each exhibit is unique, featuring different works by each of the artists. Pink Progression's three exhibits collectively occur over a six month period, February 16 through August 18, 2018.

This exhibition centers on artists using social bridging strategies in their artmaking through participatory experiments, humorous critiques, and collaborative craft. These artists pull tactics from social science, psychology, education and design thinking. Referred to as “social practice” these artists use human relations as their artistic medium rather than a studio based creative practice.

Role Reversal: Christa Blackwood, Lissa Rivera, And Jessica Yatrofsky

Colorado Photographic Arts Center

March 2 - April 7, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Friday, March 9, 6-9 pm; Featuring Remarks by Christa Blackwood & Jessica Yatrofsky
Lissa Rivera Beautiful Boy Study with Chairs
Lissa Rivera - Beautiful Boy (Study with Chairs 1)

The Colorado Photographic Arts Center presents Role Reversal, an exhibition that presents the work of three women photographers whose images challenge long-held perceptions of beauty and gender roles in visual culture.

Gender disparity has long played an important part in informing the way we look at art and art history. Traditionally, men are the artists and viewers, while women have been confined to play the role of the muse: subjects to be painted, sculpted, and photographed by and from the male perspective.

However, photographs taken by Christa Blackwood, Lissa Rivera, and Jessica Yatrofsky do not exist solely as a counterpoint to the male narrative. Their work is part of a larger conversation about how we see, present, and view others in society.

(Tac)Tile featuring Kelly Austin-Rollo and Matthew Swisher

  • Artist Talk: Thursday March 29, 7-8pm
  • Concurrently we will be showing Giant Woodcuts in Art Gym Gallery, March 1 - 17 and our national call for entry, ImPressed March 22- April 11
tactile Email
Art Gym Denver is happy to announce the opening of its second gallery space, Common Space Gallery, with the opening of (Tac)tile, an exhibition of new works by member artists Matthew Swisher and Kelly Austin-Rollo in conjunction with the Denver Month of Printmaking.

Both artists are printmakers exploring other mediums.

Kelly Austin-Rolo is a contemporary artist working in encaustic. A recent transplant from New York, her work explores the natural world and our man-made landscapes and cityscapes. Kelly’s cyclical process of creation to destruction, back to to creation, allows her to play with the colors and wax, working their shapes over time, resulting in organic and harmonious forms.

Kelly explains, “I am inspired by the unending possibilities that creating with wax allows me. From building up...creating texture, to scraping and fusing with a torch and creating smooth, glass like surfaces, every day brings something new. I can constantly learn about this medium and all the possible techniques.”

Matthew Swisher is a Denver-based artist from the Bay Area, CA who received his BFA from the University of Denver in 2015. Though his primary medium is printmaking, Matthew jumps between various media including installation, performance, photography, encaustic, and digital art. Matthew views art as a "language of the commons", and from this public cultural space grows the opportunity for horizontal exchange of ideas and dialogue. His work often focuses on political themes and creating grass-roots connections. Matthew says, “My goal is to give people something meaningful to hold: visually with their eyes, emotionally with their experience, enthusiastically with their imaginations.”

Theodore Waddell: Home Pasture

Visions West Contemporary

March 2 - 31, 2018

  • Opening reception: Friday, March 2nd from 6-8pm
Big Sky Angus, 2017. Oil and encaustic on canvas, 120” x 216”

Theodore Waddell’s depictions of the vast landscape, horses, and cattle are not typical of most Western art due to the influence of the abstract expressionist movement on his practice. Home Pastures will include the monumental painting Big Sky Angus as well as works on paper, oil paintings, and various prints spanning the past 30 years.

“I prefer work that is open ended and does not attempt to lead me in a certain way and determine all of the conclusions,” Waddell said. “I want my work to constantly change for me and for those who view it, hopefully it will be different each time I see it as well as for others who view it.”

Waddell was born in Billings, Montana, in 1941 and raised in Laurel, Montana. He studied at the Brooklyn Museum Art School, Eastern Montana College, and Wayne State University. Waddell taught at the University of Montana from 1968 – 1976 and is now a full time artist and rancher. He has had more than 90 solo exhibitions throughout his art career and his art can be found in major museums across the United States.

  • Artist’s Salon: Saturday, April 14th, 4-6pm
Barbara Shark - Self Portrait in Iris, 1991, Pastel on paper, 42 ½ x 30 inches

Colorado artist Barbara Shark has built a long and successful practice creating large format, photo-realistic paintings. Her works capture their subjects outdoors or in animated conversations around the dinner table, doing almost anything, but always actively doing something. In her pieces, Shark invites the viewer to imagine narratives about what’s going on, the personalities interacting, and what relationships under-gird their interactions. Working both in luscious black and white and in vibrant color, Shark takes everyday life and elevates it to the level of fine art. Spanning the time period from the early 1990’s to the 2010’s, About Time explores the artist’s focus, her skill and her growth as one of the region’s preeminent painters.

An Artist’s Salon will be held on Saturday, April 14th, 4-6pm. In conjunction with the Salon, the event wil also featurel the official release party for Shark’s newly published memoir, How I Learned To Cook, An Artist's Life. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and the artist will be signing copies.

In this exhibit we look at eight artists who use printmaking as a conduit to their work in other mediums; painting, sculpture and installation. Is printmaking the informer in this process of transitioning between two mediums or is it being informed by the other disciplines that these artists use in their work? Each artist will present their print work along side work they do in other mediums so you can decide.
