DATELINE presents Light Lite Coin, a group show of digital and net art in conjunction with The Wrong: Digital Art Biennale. This exhibition is a physical iteration of the Light Lite Coin pavilion, part of many online pavilions housing thousands of digital and internet artists from around the world. The exhibition is curated by Coleman Mummery.

Light Lite Coin can be best described by its curator as "self-help for collective paranoia" and brings together some of his internet idols, most of whom are artists exploring the human condition of living in a post-internet age. Light Lite Coin will occupy a physical space as well as online, and promises to be a unique art experience for all.

This January, the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities hosts in SITu, three gallery exhibitions that explore the artistic potential of chairs. A Latin term, in situ means: “in its original place” or “in position.” In the Upper Gallery, 50 artists transform 50 IKEA IVAR chairs into works of art as part of an Art Chair Auction. In the Theatre Gallery, chairs from the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art will be on display featuring a selection of designer chairs from the museum’s collection. And in the Main Gallery, From the Artist’s Perspective shows the interactive connection between an artist and their studio chair.

Also on view around the Center is Victory by Stephen Farland and Brian Sartor, massive soldier statues made entirely of handmade chairs and chair parts. in SITu opens January 18 with a free public reception, and runs until April 1, 2018. The exhibitions are sponsored by Lutheran Medical Center.

50 of IKEA’s IVAR chair were generously donated by IKEA Centennial for artists to transform. These wooden chairs have been turned into sculptures, art objects, and re-imagined functional chairs, and will all be offered for auction throughout the duration of the exhibition. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Arvada Center Exhibitions program and will help keep our galleries free.

The Colorado Photographic Arts Center has partnered with The New York Times to present On the Street with Bill Cunningham, an exhibition celebrating the career of iconic fashion photographer Bill Cunningham. The public is invited to a free opening reception at CPAC on Friday, January 12, 6-9 pm, featuring special guest Tiina Loite, a photo editor who worked closely with Cunningham in the New York Times’ Style section. Cunningham was best known for his candid photographs of stylish women and men on the streets of New York. A Harvard University dropout, he was first a designer of women’s hats before moving on to writing about fashion for Women’s Wear Daily and the Chicago Tribune. He began taking candid photographs on the streets of New York City, and his work drew the attention of The New York Times with a 1978 picture of Greta Garbo in an unguarded moment. He worked for the New York Times until his death in June 2016 at age 87.

Courney M. Leonard: EUPHOTIC

Tansey Contemporary

January 26 - March 2, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Friday, January 26th 5:30 - 7:30pm
L2Artifice
Courney M. Leonard - L2 ARTIFICE

EUPHOTIC will expand on Courtney's current body of work exploring and documenting the fragility of our water environment, whale and material sustainability. EUPHOTIC exists as an interwoven memory, an exploration of materiality, and a poetic understanding of light as an extension of both architecture and object in environmental record.

The Euphotic Zone is the depth of water in the ocean where light exists and allows for healthy growth of plant life and aquatic species. It is also one of the heaviest zones effected by increased nitrogen run off, leading to a lack of oxygen sufficient enough for these species to survive. The result is often seen in striking images of mass fish die-offs, or large aerial views of algae blooms, and warning signs that read "DO NOT SWIM" "WATER TOXICITY LEVELS HIGH TODAY". This work is a reflection of this zone, a place where generations of fishing communities continue their life ways and relationships to the natural resources to which their cultural landscapes affords through local harvesting and means of subsistence. Woven with clay as a material that when fired exists within a framework of fragility similar to that of the fragility of our environment.

Plinth Gallery Curator Jonathan Kaplan has been an avid collector of ceramics for over 40 years. In his collection are works by potters and ceramic artists, some who are still active in the field while sadly, others who have passed away. Many of these artists were involved in the wholesale and retail marketplaces that began with an early regional retail craft event in Stowe Vermont in 1966. This craft fair became a major marketplace for American crafts and in 1973, moved to the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck New York to became known as the American Crafts Council Rhinebeck Craft Fair. American Craft Enterprises, a division of the American Crafts Council became the promoter. In short time, other major wholesale and retail events under their direction became venues for craftspeople to exhibit their work and build their business through sales to stores and galleries as well as the public. The Baltimore Winter Market of American Crafts, debuted in 1976 and became their signature event and is still an ongoing yearly marketplace.

As a potter, Jonathan was a participant in these events and the works in his collection were acquired through purchases and trades with other ceramic artists. These pieces also present a visual history of a time and a place in the history of American Ceramics.

It's a Colorful World

Melanie Rothchild - Guten Tag Trails - Acrylic on panel - 48"x36"

For most of us, color plays an important role in the way we perceive the world. As children, we develop our understanding of the world establishing color associations with most of the things that we can touch, taste, smell and even hear.

Think of an apple...what color popped into your mind?
A rubber duck?
A swimming pool?
The grass under your feet?

As you continue on your travels, you will probably think of many more. The artists in this exhibit explore the several ways colors sit together, how they make us feel, and the impact the use of color has in our world.

"One color carries its own meaning. Two colors create a harmony. Three colors create something totally new.” - Inkyo Back

Michael Warren Contemporary is a leading contemporary art gallery in the Arts District on Santa Fe Drive in Denver. The gallery provides one of the largest bodies of salable art in the city representing 45 artists from around the country. Additionally the gallery consigns more than 5,000 fine art prints from internationally recognized artists whose work has been placed into museums around the world.

Sarah Staton (born 1961) is an artist based in London, England, whose diverse practice melds sculpture, painting, architecture, design, publishing, fashion, and technology to create objects and spaces that are simultaneously aesthetic and utilitarian. Initiated in 1993, Sarah Staton's SupaStore started as a DIY art sale experiment that has transpired at dozens of museums, galleries, and alternative venues over the years, most recently at Midway Contemporary Art in Minneapolis. Over one hundred artists, ranging from up-and-coming contemporaries, unknowns, and established artists have had a piece they created for sale at the SupaStore. SupaStore Human - We are the Product reflects how technology and automation has impacted social interaction, commerce, and manufacturing. As the goddess of art, trade, handicrafts and wisdom, Minerva (in her many guises) has become the public face of the SupaStore and represents the classical origins of these now mechanized exchanges.

On Thursday, December 14 (6-8pm) Sarah will lead a plaster casting workshop. The castings will become part of the SupaStore Human installation. Please email your RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to secure a spot.

Join us for the official public opening of SupaStore Human - We are the Product on Friday, December 15 (6-8pm) with artist talk at 6:45pm. Both the workshop and the opening reception are free and open to the public. SupaStore Human will be on view through February 2018.
