Peace in the Universe
Downtown Aurora Visual Arts
December 1, 2017 - January 12, 2018
Share peace this holiday season at DAVA (Downtown Aurora Visual Arts). Youth at DAVA create special works of art year round and this is their contribution to the holiday spirit of giving. This year, the focus is on making art that brings us peace and unity. Proceeds from this exhibit support year round art programs for youth at DAVA. DAVA is a wonderful destination for handmade holiday gifts. Youth experimented with a wide range of materials and techniques to create mandala rocks, shadow boxes, mobiles, ceramics and pillows. Other projects are inspired by animal architecture to bugs and plant studies. Students in all programs are working together to create wonderful artworks to share with you.
Guest artists Jessica Ellis, Cal Duran and Frankie Toan add unique perspectives to the exhibit. Jessica Ellis creates small sculptures (Curioscapes) and jewelry using elements of nature. She will inspire students in November as a guest artist in the studio. A selection of ceramics, papier mache and painting by Cal Duran will open our imagination to other worlds. Frankie Toan links people through words and hands. His sewn and cross stitched pieces often show hands of different colors while others are interactive soft sculptures.

Adonna Khare: Menagerie
Visions West Gallery
November 9 – December 9, 2017
Adonna Khare - Grizzly and Bunny - 2017 - carbon pencil on paper - 12"x9"
Visions West Contemporary (Denver) is pleased to announce a solo exhibition, Menagerie, a solo exhibition of Adonna Khare meticulous carbon-pencil on paper drawings. Adonna Khare is an American master carbon-pencil artist. Her style has been compared to the photo-realistic illustrations of Audubon, but the surreal worlds and strange inhabitants she creates can only spring from her imagination. Khare’s life-size works possess the scope of a painting, but with enough detail and realism to give viewers the impression they can step through the paper and into Adonna’s worlds. Though she stays steadfast to her chosen mediums, pencil and paper, her work spans from 8” x 11” to massive murals covering entire walls. She says of her process, “I draw how one might sculpt,” and the final artworks contain far more layers of pencil than the surface belies. A review of her in-progress pieces reveal hints of skeleton, almost as if she is drawing her fictional subjects from the inside out.
