Pigment, Value, Density: Sue Crosby Doyle and Jean Smith

Anthology Fine Art and Gallery

Pigment, Value, Density refers to the way colors are used, from the actual colored powder which is the basis of color (pigment), to the relative darkness or lightness of the color (value), and on to the transparency or opaqueness of that color (density). It represents the study or testing of the hue, lightness, and saturation of the light reflected as we see things; playing with what happens visually when various colors are used together. How do we feel when we see various color combinations? Can we create different feelings by changing the color combinations?

This duo show aims to make the viewer aware of their feelings by the colors in relationship to each other: happiness, sadness, anger, love, and feelings in between. Sue features her monotypes and collages and Jean features her ceramic sculptures.

Sordid & Sacred: The Beggars in Rembrandt's Etchings

Sangre de Cristo Arts & Conference Center (Pueblo, CO)

June 3 - September 24, 2017

  • Sordid and Sacred is drawn from the John Villarino Collection and organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions
exhibition header rembrandt

Rembrandt Van Rijn, widely recognized as the greatest practitioner of the etching technique in the history of art, created a body of work unparalleled in richness and beauty. Rembrandt repeatedly chose beggars as the subject for his etchings.

The Villarino collection features 26 rare etchings by Rembrandt van Rijn (1606- 1669), executed between 1629 and 1648. In addition, a Rembrandt piece from the Harry & Karly Spell collection and a sampling of Rembrandt etchings from the collection of the late Dr. Ronald Moreschini will be displayed along with educational text about provenance and the art of collecting.

As one of the towering figures in the history of art, Rembrandt, a miller’s son from the university town of Leiden, was an artist of unmatched genius. Equally gifted as a painter, printmaker, and draftsman, Rembrandt proved himself to be as skillful at making portraits as he was at creating religious and mythological narratives. His landscapes are just as remarkable as his rare still lifes and subjects detailing everyday life.

Widely recognized as the greatest practitioner of the etching technique in the history of art, Rembrandt created 300 prints that constitute a body of work unparalleled in richness and beauty. Rembrandt repeatedly chose beggars as the subject for his etchings. Many of Rembrandt’s etchings sympathetically portray beggars as biblical figures. These etchings of beggars also played an essential role in Rembrandt’s formative years as an artist.

Dutch author, art historian, and editor of, “The Complete Etchings of Rembrandt,” Dover Publications, NY, 1994, Gary Schwartz, in his essay for the exhibition catalogue, writes “The image of the beggar in Netherlandish art was no better than in society as a whole. It would not then have been out of line with the convictions of his society, with Netherlandish artistic tradition or classical art theory, had Rembrandt depicted beggars as contemptible or loathsome creatures. Indeed, some of his work fits perfectly well into this picture.” However, many of Rembrandt’s etchings are of biblical scenes with biblical figures portrayed as beggars. Schwartz writes, “This kind of crossover between street life and sacred history matches a pattern that is found elsewhere in Rembrandt’s work. Mean and sordid though they may have been in life and in art theory, in Rembrandt’s etchings beggars are bestowed with sanctity and individuality.”

James Garnett: Yin and Yang

Artists on Santa Fe Gallery

June 1 - July 3, 2017

  • 1st Friday Art Walk: June 2, 6-9 pm
  • 3rd Friday Artist’s Reception: June 16, 5-8 pm

In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describe how often opposites are complementary and connected like hot and cold, black and white, short and tall, and functional/nonfunctional when working in clay.

Artists on Santa Fe's June show will feature resident artist, James Garnett, commonly known to work in the nonfunctional side of clay using the Japanese method of glaze firing called Raku.

New works will be exhibited alongside his new designs in functional ware including sake sets, teapots, and trays. Using slab construction, the wheel, and extruded clay he follows the intended rules of clean lines and form as often seen in his architecturally inspired nonfunctional vessels. Additionally, new works in painting, jewelry, photography, and ceramics by gallery artists will be exhibited.

Artists on Santa Fe is a gallery with working artists' studios located in the heart of the Art District on Santa Fe. It's an engaging environment where visitors can interact with professional artists and view work in progress. The gallery is a local favorite, and was featured in New York Time's "36 hours" series as one of the most accessible galleries in Denver.

Color: Works by Teresa Booth Brown

Gates Garden Court Gallery at the Denver Botanic Gardens

May 24 – August 6, 2017

  • Exhibit organized in collaboration with Michael Warren Contemporary, Denver
Copyright © 2017 Teresa Booth Brown

While Booth Brown’s paintings are evocative of landscapes, architecture, and still lifes, they are none of these things. The artist constructs a tension between the conceptual and the concrete. Fragments of photography are recognizable, but flat, geometrical fields of color insist on the materiality of the paint and its composition.

Landscapes 2017

The Center for Fine Art Photography (Fort Collins)

May 19 - July 1, 2017

  • Featuring 47 international photographers chosen by Juror Lisa Volpe
Image by Monica Stevenson

‘Take a trip to any coastline or national park and you’re sure to encounter stops for “Scenic Views,” “Lookout Points,” or most blatantly, a sign encouraging you to “Take Photos Here”. Yet, not much is revealed in this endless repetition of imagery. As Andy Warhol would stress with his silkscreens, “The more you look at the same exact thing, the more the meaning goes away.” This is not to say that every landscape must depict a radically new scene, but rather that it should attempt to convey something new. It must—to borrow from Evans—reveal a secret that only the unique mind behind the camera can capture. The history of landscape photography is long. Yet, there is much more to be said.’ –Landscapes Juror Lisa Volpe for C4FAP 2017.

47 Featured Artists: Paul Adams, Robert Atwater, Ivy Bigbee, Amanda Breitbach, Scott Campbell, Georgina Campbell, Michael Carlebach, Dewey Chapman, Mary Ciullo, Pinque Clark, Adam Crosson, Sean Du, Suzanne Engelberg, Michael Farrell, Aaron Feinberg, Jason Flack, Bryan Florentin, Doug Frost, Sharon Lee Hart, Drew Harty, Scott Herndon, Kevin Hoth, Adriene Hughes, Melinda Hurst-Frye, Yoichi Kawamura, Tim Kelly, Jim Kostecky, J.

Impressions: a contemporary exhibit featuring the artwork of Russian artists Lyudmila Agrich & Julia Klimova

Mirada Fine Art

May 20 – June 11, 2017

Julia Klimova, 'Bright Song,' Oil on Canvas, 36" x 36"

Much of the magic imparted by art is its ability to lead each viewer down a different path. Often the memory or emotion a piece evokes is as important as the actual scene depicted. This is particularly true in contemporary impressionist artwork.

Mirada Fine Art unites two of their most popular artists (both born and raised in Russia), Lyudmila Agrich and Julia Klimova, for an exhibit of their newest work. Agrich layers lush color with a palette knife, masterfully capturing the internal glow of European cityscapes, lush fields of poppies and sunsets across water. Klimova’s work evokes a soft romanticism within her figures, landscapes and still life paintings.
