Recognized as one of Colorado’s prominent painters, Margaret Pettee Olsen was included in the 2018 exhibit Made in Colorado, a wide-ranging survey with 40 intriguing contemporary artists from across the state, and she was in the 2016 exhibit Colorado Women in Abstraction, a showcase of artists who have been influential in the abstract movement in Colorado. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and Columbia University, she was founding curator of Oberon Press in TriBeCa, in Manhattan. This is her first Denver solo show.

‘The paintings of Margaret Pettee Olsen speak to our visual culture in which we are inundated with imagery on computer screens, smart phones, high-definition televisions, and other devices of what the artist calls our “media-driven version of experience.” Informed by abstract traditions, she ventures into new territory with the latest developments in pigments and with a sensibility that taps into the turbulence of our times.’ --Stephanie Grillli
