2017 marks the 100-year anniversary of William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody’s death in Denver. In honor of this centenary, Denver Arts & Venues highlights the diversity in his Wild West shows by borrowing from the poster collection of the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave in Golden.

In Inclusion: Diverse Voices of the Modern West, Denver artist Rochelle Johnson has brought together a group of Colorado artists to explore themes of complex connections of racial identity through artistic expression. Underrepresented in the mainstream art scene, the diversity of these artists shows what true inclusion can look like.

Artists included in the exhibition are Sean Gray, Dawn Williams Boyd, Kaz Umezono, Jenna Almond Williams, Josh Armijo, Yee Tseng, Deborah Jang, Joel Cook, Allister Bane, Sylvia Montero, Tony Ortega, Ron Hicks, Michael Gadlin, Karen Divine, James Dixon, Ella Maria Ray, and Andrea T. Kemp

Penitents: World End Rituals of Faith

  • Opening reception: Thursday, June 22 from 6 - 9 pm
“Penitents: World End Rituals of Faith” will include the illuminating photographic
portfolio of Guy Veloso as part of the 2017 Biennial of the Americas

Guy Veloso’s images capture a moment in time where faith, consciousness, and cuerpo become one through ritual. The photographic documentation of the rituals disrupts our contemporary urban reality, summoning another more ancient reality to action, at the world’s end. As we experience Veloso’s reality, we become penitents albeit from different hemispheres. - Maruca Salazar, Curator

Steven Hill: New Ceramic Work

Plinth Gallery

August 4 - September 30, 2017

  • Opening Reception: First Friday, August 4th, 6-9pm
  • Note: The Gallery will be closed from August through September 6th and will not be open on First Friday September 1st


On First Friday August 4th, Plinth Gallery welcomes Steven Hill and his newest ceramic work in his untitled solo exhibition. This highly acclaimed artist has maintained a ceramic practice for over 30 years. Steven is well regarded as a workshop leader and educator, and his signature work has been featured in publications worldwide.

Steven's functional ceramic work exploits the fluidity of clay and the wheel forming process. His shapes spring to life as if they grow from the wheel. The voluptuous shapes are further enhanced by the depth and quality of his surface decoration. Using a subtle palette of rich satin glazes, he sprays multiple layers over each other so they flow and melt together with a unique depth and vibrancy when fired in the kiln.

Joshua Field - Thinking About What Hides Inside

Artists Joshua Field, Denis Roussel, Margaret Kasahara, and Anna Kaye have activated their work with social issues in a web of human experience. The familiar yet mysterious drawings of Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design professor/artist Joshua Field probe the human condition with private narratives with drawings grounded in the exploration of interior states and emotions generated by his real-life situations. The powerful charcoal drawing of Anna Kaye focus attention on planet earth and environmental reverence. Exploration of personal identity and the cultural duality of East and West have evolved in Margaret Kasahara’s work to express the relationship of self with inclusion, integration and inner acceptance. The visceral Lumen prints of artist Denis Roussel highlight the epidemic of food waste from photos of Roussel’s family compost.

Mirage by Hallie Packard

Valkarie Gallery

August 16 - September 10, 2017

  • Opening Reception: Saturday, August 19, 5 - 8:30pm

The morning sun projects the day onto waking eyelids. In an instant, you are here. A tickle in the corner of consciousness brings a faint memory of a place. The tickle becomes an itch. The mind stretches furiously, straining to retrace steps, to push back into that otherworldly yet unsettlingly familiar “place.” Just as pieces begin to rematerialize, something slips and it all vanishes completely from beneath your feet. For a split second, you hover between two worlds. For a split second, it all comes back.

The wonders of natural environments are often known to spark creativity in the human mind. Drawing inspiration from nature, while freeing themselves from representational qualities, these 7 artists collectively evoke natural abstractions through varying media. Their works look at man's influence on nature, and nature's subsequent response. Organic references ground their compositions in an effort to make sense of random elements through nature's inherent geometry.
