Made in Colorado

Emmanuel Art Gallery (June 7 - August 10, 2018)

Gallery 808 (June 7 - July 30, 2018)

  • Due to the size of the exhibition, Made in Colorado is presenting at another downtown location: Gallery 808 in the Santa Fe Art District, with different pieces installed in each location
  • Opening Reception: Thursday June 7 from 6 – 9 pm at both locations

The Emmanuel Art Gallery, located on the campus of CU Denver, announces the opening of Made in Colorado on June 7th. The juried show received nearly 1,000 submissions from artists throughout the state and works were selected by Olga Viso, named one of the most powerful women in art by artnet, and Cameron Gainer, a Colorado-born and internationally known visual artist, publisher, and gallerist.

Made in Colorado is the re-envisioning of Zip 802, the Emmanuel’s juried exhibition first conceived in 1985 featuring Denver artists hailing from the 802 zip codes. As Emmanuel Art Gallery director Jeff Lambson discovered when looking to revive the show, the Denver landscape has changed. Soaring real estate prices have pushed many artists out of the 802 area. To open the opportunity to show in the Emmanuel Art Gallery to as many artists as possible, he opened the call to all of Colorado.

“Colorado artists are making art that is powerful and timely,” says Lambson. “It is engaging with the politics, movements, fights, and conversations happening around the world in meaningful ways. By pulling together works made by artists around the State, varying perspectives are revealed about what’s happening in the world today and how Coloradoans are reacting, contributing, and seeking change.”

The Emmanuel Art Gallery, curated and run by CU Denver’s College of Arts & Media, is housed in Denver’s oldest standing religious structure, which is the first building in Colorado on the national historic register and the first building on the state’s landmark preservation commission. It is located at the historic crossroads of the original pioneer downtown and was a true melting pot of people coming from around the world to find their fortune and create new lives. First an Episcopalian Chapel, it was later converted to one of the first Synagogues in the West. It has been an art gallery since 1973.

Brining in two renowned jurors from beyond state lines validates the impact that Colorado is having in the creative industries nationwide. Viso is considered one of the leading contemporary art curators in the western world. The former director of the Walker Art Center and the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, she has also been a curator for the Norton Collection and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta and served on the board of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Association of Art Museum Directors. Gainer has shown at museums around the world and his publication, The Third Rail, is a nonprofit quarterly devoted to a discussion of modern and contemporary art, politics, philosophy, and culture.

“At the Emmanuel, artists explore portraiture through aspects of cultural and personal identity. Landscape is another important subject as artists here examine humanity’s relationship to the natural world and also consider our impact on the environment,” says Viso, creating a distinction between the two spaces as a part of a single show. “Gallery 808 gathers artists of varying sensibilities who experiment with abstraction and the tactile and formal qualities of materials, including latex, paper, fiber, and human hair.”

The Emmanuel Art Gallery’s mission is to enhance understanding and experience of the visual arts through the presentation of significant art exhibitions, lectures and events. CU Denver recently took over management of the Emmanuel Art Gallery and is committed to exhibiting and making accessible the important art of our time.

CU Denver College of Arts and Media is the first college in Colorado devoted exclusively to arts and entertainment. The College of Arts & Media understands the influence of modern trends on traditional art forms, with a skilled faculty that is comprised of artistic masters and educators in creativity who are connected to the pulse of art, entertainment, and the creative industries.

Please join ATC DEN as we present our summer exhibition featuring a sculpture and mixed media art show by three varied Denver artists, Emma Balder, Bonnie Ferrill Roman and Yoshitomo Saito. These artists are each at different stages of their careers, yet they are linked by the common thread of transcendence within their work and processes.

Emma's fiber paintings combine string and delicate layers of drawings with an eye towards form and spacial relations. She is an artist on the rise in Denver's RiNo art district.

Bonnie creates layered paper sculptures and we are excited to present her sculpture in an immersive environment to give the viewer an opportunity to participate in finding their own transcendence state.

Yoshitomo is a very well respected and established artist on a national level who works in Denver's RiNo art district as well. We are honored to welcome him and his unique motion sculpture to our exhibition.

The Denver Art Museum will present contemporary artist Jeffrey Gibson’s first major museum exhibition, showcasing his acclaimed multi-disciplinary work from 2011 to the present. Jeffrey Gibson: Like a Hammer will feature about 65 objects comprising large and mid-sized figurative works, text-based wall hangings, a significant selection of his illustrious Everlast beaded punching bags, painted works on rawhide and canvas, as well as videos.

Organized by the DAM and curated by John Lukavic, curator of Native Arts, the exhibition will chronicle a pivotal moment in the artist’s career when his contemporary artistic practice converged with his Native American heritage.

“Jeffrey Gibson is widely recognized as a unique and influential voice in contemporary art as well as within Native American art circles, and we are eager to present his first major museum exhibition, which is bold in both color and scale,” said Christoph Heinrich, Frederick and Jan Mayer Director of the DAM. “This exhibition builds on our ongoing initiative to showcase contemporary art by American Indian artists. It is also a continuation of our emphasis on organizing monographic exhibitions, exposing, and in some cases introducing, our visitors to a single artist’s creative process.”

Marcio Diaz, Under the Moonlight, Original Acrylic on Canvas, 30" x 40"

Nicaraguan artist Marcio Diaz’s work reflects the saturated hues of his rural childhood. A move to the U.S. Pacific Northwest as an adult helped refine his distinct style, a cross between Jackson Pollock and pointillism It is a style Marcio simply calls ‘bubblism.’ As if seeing images through the distortion of raindrops, Marco draws a background scene, drips paint, applies heat, and wipes it down innumerable times, followed by layer after layer of circles of color, reinforcing and harmonizing his compositions. The end result is truly mesmerizing. This is Marcio's first solo exhibition east of the Pacifica Northwest...don't miss it!

Pixelated: Sculpture by Mike Whiting

Denver Botanic Gardens

April 28 - September 23, 2018

mike.whiting
Pixelated explores the relationships between the natural world and the artificial world of digital media. Mike Whiting says “Gardens are in their own way virtual spaces—carefully created environments. The contrast of the sculptures’ geometric and manmade materials can seem at odds with the gardens, but they are connected in the dialogue about the re-presentation of nature.”

Whiting’s sculptures also represent the intersection of two distinct visual styles: 8-bit pixel graphics—which have enjoyed a recent resurgence in games like "Minecraft"—and minimalist sculpture. Technological limitations in early video games like "Pac-Man" and "Space Invaders" reduced the graphics to simplified shapes, while the minimalist art movement created artworks that purposely lacked detail. Pixelated investigates the opposite intents of these two artistic approaches that result in a strikingly similar visual outcome.

Trine Bumiller

Centenary: Selections from 100 Paintings for 100 Years

Gallery 81435 (Telluride)

March 1 - April 30, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Thursday, March 1, 5-8 pm
trine
Trine Bumiller’s 100 Paintings for 100 Years is a series of 100 paintings that were inspired by a residency during the centennial year of Rocky Mountain National Park, but evolved into something much greater, an immersive experience, both in practice and in installation, that points to our human need to record, remember, and reflect. The works are meditations on our relationship to nature, and, through various perspectives, present a deconstructed portrait of the landscape. They advance the dialogue between abstraction and representation, resting somewhere between the two; as if between experience and memory lies true reality.

The oil paintings are painstakingly created with the application of fifty transparent oil glazes, over a year’s time. The soft edges of the paint layers add an additional level of organic form, balanced against the overriding geometric structure and arrangement of the panels. The process itself is a study in abstraction through iterations of focus. The sheer number is an exercise in obsession and perseverance and relates small parts to an infinite whole in many ways: a step becomes a mile, becomes a journey; a moment becomes an hour, a year and 100 years; and a brushstroke becomes a painting, becoming a series of 100 paintings.

Trine Bumiller explores the relationship between memory and experience through paintings and installations that balance on the edge of both abstract and environmental concerns. She has a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and studied in Rome with the European Honors Program. Trine has had many exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Solo shows include the McNichols Building in Denver, the University of Wyoming Art Museum, the Las Cruces Museum of Art and most recently at the International Arts Festival of Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina. She has received grants from Colorado Council on the Arts and Colorado Federation of the Arts and been an artist in residence at Yaddo, Denali National Park, and Rocky Mountain National Park. Her work has been reviewed in Art in America, artltd., ArtNews, the New Art Examiner, the Christian Science Monitor, the Denver Post, and Westword. She is on the board of Denver Art Museum’s DAM Contemporaries. She is represented by Robischon Gallery, Denver, Markel Fine Arts, New York and Zg Gallery, Chicago.

yoshi
Born in Tokyo, Japan but residing in the United States since 1983, Yoshitomo Saito finds inspiration in the minutia of the natural world, drawing out details of the environment surrounding us and elements of everyday experiences that most would miss or take for granted. In 2006, Saito moved to the Rocky Mountain region in search of a new and affordable live/work situation to pursue the lifestyle of a fully engaged independent artist. Utilizing the Italian lost-wax process of bronze casting at his Ironton Studios foundry in the RiNo Art District of Denver, the artist freezes delicate, organic objects in time and assembles them into immersive, meditative, thoughtful and sometimes humorous installations.

Sue McNally: This Land is My Land

Chuck Kimmerle: From the Heart:Land

Museum of Art, Fort Collins

​January 19 – March 18, 2018

CloudOverWheatField Colorado
Chuck Kimmerle, Cloud Over Cut Wheat Field, digital photography, Courtesy of the Artist

The series of paintings exhibited in This Land Is My Land is part of a much larger project that Sue McNally is working on to paint a landscape in all fifty states. The selection shown here represents the west through her eyes and vantage point and how the magnificent landscapes and varied terrain in states such as New Mexico, Colorado and Washington, for example, shape us as residents and tourists. Since 2010, with her first painting of Devil's Tower in Wyoming, McNally has crossed the country to try and see America as a whole through her relationship with its different landscapes, some iconic and some personal. This Land Is My Land represents one artist reckoning with our culture and what it means to be an American, starting with our land and the views that we mythologize and hold sacred.

Chuck Kimmerle’s landscape photography centers primarily around the intersections of where man and nature meet. These areas, which now seem to be the norm of our landscape, offer an insight and significance which cannot be found in nature alone, according to the artist. Kimmerle works exclusively in black and white with its inherently graphic format, which allows him the maximum opportunities for creative exploration.

ICONOCLASM: Jonathan Dankenbring & Corey Drieth

GOCA 121 (Downtown Colorado Springs)

December 1, 2017 - March 17, 2018

  • Opening reception: Friday December 1 from 5-9pm; gallery conversation with the artists starting at 5:30pm
goca
Colorado-based artists Jonathan Dankenbring and Corey Drieth will exhibit new works in sculpture, drawing and mixed-media, exploring the concept of iconoclasm - a rejection of images and iconography - and minimalism. The exhibition's genesis was a conversation between the artists about minimalism and art; their dialogue continues and is explored through the exhibition and an accompanying broadside publication.

Minimalist art is marked by an avoidance of overt symbolism and emotional content, instead calling attention to the materiality of the works through a limited palette and simple media. This art movement emerged in the early 1960s and applied to a wide range of artists who were overtly rejecting the energy-filled and emotionally charged art of the Abstract Expressionist movement. Artists such as Frank Stella, Robert Irwin, Agnes Martin, and Donald Judd questioned the very existence of painting and sculpture as they rejected the very labels applied to them. At its core, Minimalism asserts that art should have its own reality and not be an imitation of some other thing.

Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA) is a regional hub of contemporary art, culture, and conversation. By featuring world-class artists, hosting artist and expert talks, and offering meaningful events, GOCA engages University of Colorado Colorado Springs students, faculty, staff and Pikes Peak Region community members in contemporary culture and life. GOCA is a contemporary arts organization with two galleries, one founded on the UCCS campus in 1981 and a satellite downtown location that opened in 2010 in the Plaza of the Rockies building.

Small Works is an exhibition that will pull you closer—quite literally—to photography. These 12-inch and smaller sized images range from Polaroid photos to precious metal pieces. Every small work portrays a unique story from each artist. "I decided not to let other artists’ motives be what guided my own. Instead, I would use what I needed from them in order to express my feelings regarding my own small place in the Universe. For me, the resulting imaginary realities feel more relevant than the realities expressed in the scientific language of quantum particles, billions of light years, and infinite accelerations.” –Artist Jeannie Hutchins. Visit us to see these small works while they are here!

Salvador Dalí, Destino #27, Pen, ink, watercolor on buff paper. Collection of Dr. Wayne F. Yakes 

Salvador Dalí (1904 – 1989) & Pablo Picasso (1881- 1973) are two of the most well-known artists in all of 20th century art. For both, aspects of their personal lives and outsized personalities sometimes overshadowed their large creative output. Both were master draftsmen, creative pioneers in many artistic movements throughout the 20th century and moved freely between many mediums. This exhibition will feature the intimate drawings, prints and sketches of both Dalí and Picasso from the collection of Dr. Wayne F. Yakes. Among the highlights, the exhibition will showcase Dalí’s rendering of Dante’s Divine Comedy with 100 prints made from his exquisite watercolors. Fun hands-on educational projects for the entire family will also be in our Art.Edu.Osity Creative Space for the run of the exhibition.

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

Bruce Marion, '5280,' Acrylic on Canvas, 36" x 60"

Whether depicting the strength and motion of wildlife, portraying the human form, or interpreting Denver's distinctive skyline, Bruce Marion's lyrical coloration and dramatic use of light and shadow seems to illuminate his subjects from their souls. In all of his work, Marion strives to reflect the inner light playing against the exterior reality, delving into the intersection of inner versus outer spaces.

Classically trained, Marion's career has been showcased in numerous international publications and honored in juried shows; his work is collected globally.
