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.”

Kristen Hatgi Sink: Milk

Gildar Gallery

May 12 — June 17, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Saturday, May 12th from 6 - 9pm
KHAT0111
Gildar Gallery is pleased to present its second solo exhibition by Kristen Hatgi Sink titled Milk. Within this series the bodily liquid appears as a symbolic and physical material in the artist’s iconic photographs as well as a site specific installation.

Manipulating eurocentric visual tropes that historically equate abundance and innocence with supplicant white femininity, Hatgi Sink constructs indulgent images of privilege while revealing their inherent contradictions. Young girls and women placed in carefully arranged environments present a familiar ideal of beauty, both possessive and obsessive in its attention to precise aesthetics. Yet the lens has shifted along with the person behind it. As the auteur creating these elaborate scenes and the voyeur capturing them, the artist’s, and by proxy the viewer’s, relationship to her subjects comes into view as a struggle between empathy and cool idolatry.

  • Opening Reception: Wednesday, May 9, 6:30-8:30 pm at SugarCube
  • K Contemporary and SugarCube present Nina Tichava in her solo exhibition, “Layered”
K170
Tichava’s paintings draw heavily from environment, taking shape as process-based and heavily layered combinations of painting, printmaking and collage. The work is influenced by architecture and nature, and pulls from digital and printed media and photography. Using hand-cut stencils and drawings from life, she blends repeated patterns with abstract and gestural painting. The deeply layered works are created over the course of months, evolving from a base of canvas or wood grain and simple collage into complex and dynamic compositions.

Joellyn T Duesberry: An Exploration in Medium

The Curtis Center for the Arts

  • Curated by Brenda LaBier

jtd
Joellyn T Duesberry | Water-Filled Quarry, ME, 2003 | oil on linen | 36 x 48"

A self-taught oil painter, Joellyn T Duesberry’s long and distinguished career took her around the world while establishing herself as a regionalist. Exhibited are both well-known landscapes and rarely seen works that reveal the subjects that continually inspired Duesberry to revisit them on the canvas and in person. Her plein air locales focused on the northeast and western United States, while utilizing the winter months to create monotypes to experiment with abstraction.

An Exploration in Medium examines Duesberry’s prolific output from the mid-1970s to 2015 including paintings, monotypes and drawings. Exploring the planes of rural architecture, exotic land, rock, and water forms for the pull of unfamiliar geometries, it became obvious that her consistent choices of color and structure was a response to the world that came from deepest memory. Southwestern desert tans and reds (like Virginia hills) made her at ease with Tuscan, Californian or Spanish bright light, and its sculptural definition of forms; ancient hill towns of Europe presented aspects of the same architectonics, hand-forged irregularities, and the Virginia farmlands and its roofed structures from where she grew up.

New Work by Jason DeMarte

Rule Gallery

May 3 - June 16, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Thursday, May 3, from 6-9pm
jdJason DeMarte - Fog of Tranquility 2018, archival pigmented ink print

Jason DeMarte’s artistic practice has, for several years, examined humanity’s conflicting tendencies to idealize nature while continuously searching to improve upon it. By composing fictional tableaus, the work speaks to our uneasy obsession with beauty and excess and our preoccupation with sugarcoating perfection. Drawing from the romanticism of the Hudson River School and deepening his palette, DeMarte’s latest body of work increases the sense of overt indulgence while darkening the deeper subtext. Caterpillars and moths raised by the artist are stand-ins for the viewer and intermingle with flora evincing the onset of decay to bring a clearer sense of mortality often missing in our consumer-centric world. By photographing each subject individually multiple times, DeMarte is able to present a full depth-of-field in sharp focus, heightening both the sense of hyperrealism and surrealism. All of this is done to evoke an initial sense of seduction, beauty and awe that is subtly undermined the longer one engages with each piece, inviting the viewer to consider the way an adorned life gives way to greater meaning.

Jason DeMarte (b. 1973) is a tenured professor of photography at Eastern Michigan University. He received his B.F.A. in Photography from Colorado State University and his M.F.A in Photography from the University of Oregon. DeMarte's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums, both nationally and internationally and has appeared in journals, textbooks and publications including features in; Vice, Hyperallergic, Featureshoot, Crave Online, Photograph Magazine, Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, Photo District News, British Journal of Photography, the Black Warrior Review, and the Oxford American, among others. Exhibitions include shows at the Denver Botanic Gardens, The Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography, RedLine, Denver, CO, Seidel City in Boulder, CO, The Ft Wayne Museum of Art among others. Select solo exhibitions include RULE Gallery in Denver CO and Marfa, TX, Wessell Synman Gallery in Cape Town South Africa, Richard Levy Gallery in Albuquerque, NM among others. DeMarte was awarded the Garry B. Fritz image-maker award at the Society of Photographic Education conference in Atlanta Georgia and currently has work included in the Midwest Photographers Project at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, IL. His work can be found in the permanent collection of SAKS Fifth Ave, Museum of Outdoor Arts, Englewood, CO, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Los Angeles, CA., and the Fort Collins Colorado Historical Museum in addition to numerous private collections.

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!

Destino
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
