Colludium Inlustro: New pieces by Kym Bloom

Kanon Collective

October 6 - 31, 2017

  • Opening reception: First Friday, October 6, 5-10 pm
  • Artists' reception: Third Friday, October 20, 5-9 pm
"This show will feature a new series of my video game pieces, made with transparent pixels made of resin that are lit up from inside. I have been a fan of classic arcade and video games for a long time and being able to recreate these characters using light shows them as we remember them -- lit up and colorful. Many of these characters have become iconic and I believe that is partially due to their simplicity. The limits of the technology required some serious creativity and I love that people are learning to appreciate 8-bit images."

Kym will also have some new candy pieces as well as some new jewelry made with antique watch movements.

Stephen Batura: River Paintings Curated by Courtney Stell (West Gallery)

sbStephen Batura, Homeland, 2016, Acrylic on birchwood, 6' x 8'

River Paintings is a solo exhibition of works by Stephen Batura, one of the most significant contemporary painters native to Colorado. For the exhibition, Batura has chosen to present individual paintings as a long, continuous stream that flows through the museum, bringing together disparate images and connecting them with a scrolling-like flow. The work is part of ongoing series in which Batura reinterprets the entirety of photo archive from early twentieth-century Denver. With this approach, he reimagines these photographs with a painterly style that makes the historic images of landscapes, construction sites, and people seem not so far from the Denver of today.

“Americana” is commonly associated with nostalgia, optimism, and a rose-tinted view of the past. Images of baseball, stars and stripes, or apple pie may come to mind. But what does Americana look like in 2017, especially in today’s turbulent political times? Curated across two broad spectrums – people and land/architecture – Americana offers a complex vision of diversity, resilience, and distinctiveness as seen through the eyes of 26 contemporary artists from across the United States. Juror: Darren Ching, Director and Co-Owner of Klompching Gallery (New York).

Oil on canvas - 36" x 48"

About Survey, featured painter, Jivan Lee stated “It’s a landscape show, but with a diversity of sentiment. Each artist’s approach plays with geometry, but assembles it differently. Each has a rhythm, but the works move in their own ways and each is painted, but the voice of the paint is distinct. It’s all landscape verging on abstraction; landscape as a starting point to enter the material and sensation of paint as much as the scene depicted.” Boggess, Ferreyra and Lee spend a lot of time on location in the elements, bringing about three distinct, personal interpretations.

Portfolio ShowCase 10 Photography Exhibition

  • Free Artist + Public Reception: Friday October 20, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm; Artist Talks from 6:00 – 7:00 pm
Photograph by Astrid Reischwitz

Portfolio ShowCase 10 brings together the collective works of ten artists. "When we look at the creative process, photographing a single successful image is not all that difficult. This applies to amateurs and professional photographers alike. Facebook and Instagram are full of one-hit wonders, and some are memorably nice. Even artists have those one-off images they just had to photograph. Developing an entire series, however, is a completely different matter. It not only requires exponentially more skill, but also real courage to dig deep into oneself to create a fully rounded, multifaceted project. Once the series exists, the real challenge of culling the coveted portfolio begins.” -Juror Hannah Frieser 2017

10 Featured Artists: Julie Anand with Damon Sauer, Frank Hamrick, Ben Marcin, Molly McCall, Lisa McCarty, Katie Kalkstein, Tema Stauffer, Emmanuel Monzon, Matthew Hamon and Astrid Reischwitz

"The photography world is changing at a rapid pace as historical processes meld with contemporary digital work. Common themes throughout artwork such as the human condition, relation to the land, identity, sexuality, secrets, still life, and abstraction are all represented in Center Forward. Specific to photography are works that hint at artistic process and the history and evolution of the medium. These uncommon works evoke history while claiming new territory. As a whole, the works in this exhibition culminate in an experience of history, life, love, loss, and ultimately, magic." –Hamidah Glasgow 2017

De/Constructing Landscape

Featuring Hugh Daly, David Griffin, Jessica Loving and the Kleinman sisters

Sandra Phillips Gallery

September 8 – October 21, 2017

  • Opening Artist Reception: Friday, September 8, 6 – 8 pm
Jessica Loving - Cinnabar, 40" x 50", mixed media on canvas

“De/Constructing Landscape” distances itself from traditional guidelines of landscape as four artists offer alternative ways of looking at nature. With his passion for travel and landscape as muse, Hugh Daly’s paintings use bold pigment and gestural line with a ‘joie de vivre” attitude. David Griffin reflects his reverence for Colorado in a constructed landscape of grids within a kaleidoscope of nostalgia and beauty. And introducing artist Jessica Loving in her first exhibit at the Sandra Phillips Gallery, she uses a myriad of materials for texture and depth with dried flowers and seeds, creating exciting washes of color. The Kleinman sisters combine aluminum and paint to invoke the mathematics and rhythmic patterns of nature.

  • Opening Reception: Friday September 1st from 6-9pm

  • Brown will talk about his work at a Salon on Saturday October 14th from 4-6 pm
Peter Brown - Untitled (Plumed Figure) - 2014 - acrylic on paper

New York and Colorado artist Peter Brown paints richly textured, multi-layered acrylics on wood panels that oscillate between abstraction and concreteness, realism and fantasy. Inspired by the rock faces and canyons near Lyons, CO, Brown seeks to develop depth and space for the eye to play with and explore. His process mirrors the geological by building layer upon layer only to expose them, as erosion, intrusion and fracturing reveal the earth’s strata. The relation of paint and the evolving narrative brings such elements as fire, wind, and water into play as well as indistinct figures and architectural forms.
