River Paintings is a solo exhibition of works by Stephen Batura, one of the most significant contemporary painters native to Colorado. For the exhibition, Batura has chosen to present individual paintings as a long, continuous stream that flows through the museum, bringing together disparate images and connecting them with a scrolling-like flow. The work is part of ongoing series in which Batura reinterprets the entirety of photo archive from early twentieth-century Denver. With this approach, he reimagines these photographs with a painterly style that makes the historic images of landscapes, construction sites, and people seem not so far from the Denver of today.
