Of the Moment

Performance art at Leon

Featuring: Esther Hernandez, Lin Wen-Ben, Jeff Page, Jordan Knecht, and collaborative artists Tobias Fike and Matthew Harris

Saturday Evenings at 7pm, April 21 - May 19, 2018

leon
Leon is demonstrating its commitment to promoting performance art through an intensive five weeks series of events featuring some of the best and brightest performance artists of the Denver art community.

Leon is proud to announce their upcoming performance art series, Of the Moment, an exploration of the immediacy and visceral nature of performance art, celebrating six artists who are actively engaging our community, challenging our notions of art viewing, and broadening our artistic experiences. The series is taking place from April 21st through May 25th, 2018. Each successive Saturday night at 7pm, the gallery will become the stage for each of these unique and innovative artists from within our Denver scene, who are exploring a variety of performance art styles, and expressing authentic, individual statements. The artists presenting include Esther Hernandez, Lin Wen-Ben, Jeff Page, Jordan Knecht, and collaborative artists Tobias Fike and Matthew Harris.

Scheduled performance events include:

1. April 21st - Esther Hernandez - Tooth or Dare is a series of relational aesthetic performances. Participants are set up on blind dates by the artist and instructed to play a special card game, allowing players to make choices that whimsically involve performance, intimacy and vulnerability, all the while challenging social norms and conventional dating routines and rituals.

2. April 28th - Lin Wen-Ben - Please Punch is a process investigation of experimental painting employing a suspended punching bag and floor mounted canvas, challenging visitors to step beyond the passivity of mere viewing, and instead becoming active participants in the energetic experiencing of gestural mark making.

3. May 5th - Jeff Page – TITLE TBD - is a performative installation playing upon the effects of shame, exploring ways in which the heavy, negative emotion can be transformed and utilized in various ways as a transcendent poetic tool. 4. May 12th - Jordan Knecht - Signal Noise is an immersive, pluralistic exploration of signal-to-noise ratios amplified by the world of social media. “Please turn cellphones on before the beginning of the performance.”

5. May 19th - Tobias Fike & Matthew Harris - Pop is an absurdist performative dueling match involving needle-tipped swords and inflated body parts.

Every Saturday performance will be documented through video and still photography. In the week following each performance, the video and still images will be displayed on monitors, and the detritus of the performances will remain in the gallery, available for visitors to view during normal business hours. Images and videos will be updated daily on Leon Gallery's Facebook page and on Leon Gallery's Instagram feed.

He also enjoys incorporating indirect references to art history into his drawings.

A Wisconsin native, Amundson earned his bachelor's degree in art from UW-Madison and made a name for himself as an artist while living in Colorado for 35 years.

Drawings by Amundson have been exhibited throughout the U.S. and Canada, including solo shows in New York City, Philadelphia, Toronto, Los Angeles, Austin, San Antonio, Phoenix, Colorado Springs, and Denver.

Amy Norton relaunches BetterWall: Art Museum Street Banners for the Home

Access Gallery hosts a relaunch party and fundraiser on October 26, 2017

  • Relaunch party and pop-up exhibit of banners on Thursday October 26 from 5-8pm at 909 Santa Fe Drive in Denver
  • Pop-up exhibit features large original paintings by artists from the Access Gallery Artworks program, AJ and Josiah, who used discarded banners as a canvas
better
Initially launched in 2004, by Nick and Nora Weiser, BetterWall collects the street banners that were used to promote major exhibitions from top museums around the country and gives them a valuable “after-life” as limited-edition wall hangings available to purchase for the home or office. Earlier this year the business was acquired by Amy Norton of The Creative Angle. She is proud to partner with Damon McLeese and Access Gallery for a relaunch party and pop-up exhibit of banners on October 26 from 5-8pm at 909 Santa Fe Drive in Denver. The event is open to the public and will also be a fundraiser as a portion of sales from the exhibit will be donated to Access Gallery, an inclusive nonprofit organization that opens doors to creative and educational opportunities for people with disabilities to access and experience the arts. The banners will remain on view at Access through First Friday November 3 and during the Art Walk from 6-9pm.

Norton befriended the Weiser’s in 2006 during their first banner exhibit, at the gallery where she worked on Santa Fe Drive. She later began working with the Weiser’s fulfilling orders for them as a side-hustle, while she grew her marketing and communications business. Nick Weiser explains the decision to part with the business, “As I became more involved in other start-up opportunities I was able to focus less on maintaining BetterWall and did not want to see it go defunct. Amy was a natural fit to take over as she knows the ins and out of this very niche business having worked so closely with us for years.”

As banners come down from the street poles they go to BetterWall who secures appropriate retail rights for any copyrighted material. Next, they research and write a backstory of the exhibition and artist for use on the website. Each banner and write-up serves as a fun mini-art history lesson for customers who visit the website www.betterwall.com where they are available to purchase. All banners are in excellent condition with no rips, tears, fading or major blemishes. The banners are carefully cleaned and stored in keeping with appropriate archival protocol. Each banner is carefully and beautifully packaged and includes a certificate of authenticity. Best of all, these vinyl banners find new homes rather than clogging up a landfill and a portion of sales proceeds going back to the museums to support their collections and operations.

Recent banners made available to purchase include those from the Wyeth exhibition at the Denver Art Museum that include a close up of Wyeth’s dog Kleberg, with some of these banners even signed by the artist. A portrait of Monet in his Garden in Giverny, France is featured on banners from the St. Louis Museum of Art and make for a stunning pair when two banners displayed together showing each side to complete the image. These are just two examples of the wide selection ranging from Rembrandt to Pop Art, and Asian to Psychedelic poster art of the 1960s.

As oversized art goes, the banners are an affordable way to make a real impact in large and small spaces. “We have customers who collect them and like to switch them out in their home or business. Others who are thrilled to have an original piece to fill that awkward space up high in a stairwell or as a focal point and statement piece in any room.” says Norton.

Access Gallery is an inclusive nonprofit organization that engages the community by opening doors to creative and educational opportunities for people with disabilities to access and experience the arts. http://www.accessgallery.org 

BetterWall has agreements with 32 art museums to bring exclusively to you, the actual street banners that were used to promote major exhibitions. Banners are available to purchase online at http://www.betterwall.com

 

The Derby Art District (DAD) is created

Jeanie King and Mark Sink Anchor New Denver Arts District in Commerce City

derby
The Derby Art district is an exciting new collaboration of studios and galleries being developed on the edge of Denver within the historic Derby neighborhood in Commerce City, Colorado. Currently, two venues comprise the district, but additional venues are planned. Jeanie King and Mark Sink, both long time Denver arts advocates, have collaborated to launch the district -- the Magnolia Street Art Space and Gallery Sink Studios. The goal is to offer affordable art studios, gallery spaces and other amenities to support the arts. Venues will provide long-term space for artists and creative businesses. The district directly addresses the need for artist spaces related to escalating real estate prices and other issues that have impacted and displaced many in Denver's creative community. The initial buildings will offer studios that range in size from 300 to 1,500 square feet and will cost approximately $1 per square foot.

Stay tuned for more information about the district which will host special public events and more. The Derby Art District is located just north of Denver city limits. Venues are situated approximately 7 miles north of the River North (RiNo) Art District. Interstate highways 76, 270 and 25 are very close and convenient, and, a new light rail station will open closeby in 2018, which will link the district to downtown Denver and other city segments.
