Join us at Processus for Altered Nature, a printmaking exhibit with 6 artists currently creating hand pulled prints in North America: Jeffery M. Graves (CO), Sean Caulfield (Alberta, Canada), Mika Aono Boyd (OR), Josh K. Winkler (MN), Theresa Haberkorn (CO) and Anna L. Kaye (CO). The exhibition, curated by Viviane Le Courtois, reflects on contemporary natural spaces and the life within them, endangered by city expansion, population growth, natural disasters or environmental negligence.

Each artist brings a unique vision to the exhibit, contemplating the landscape in various states, and representing new life emerging from destruction and change. (Anna Kaye printing a solarplate etching at Processus) Presented in conjunction with Mo’Print in Colorado, the exhibition showcases a wide variety of printmaking processes including woodcut, linocut, silkscreen, polymer etching, mezzotint and engraving.

Processus is a co-working studio space with a printmaking area, a darkroom and a wood and sculpture shop. It brings people together around ideas of art and life. Processus is an artist run multi-use space co-founded by artists Viviane Le Courtois and Christopher R. Perez. It opened its doors to artists 3 years ago on February 21st, 2015. You can support us by using our space as your studio/ becoming a member, making a contribution, or thinking about Processus for all your artistic services (photography, custom wood frames, crates, stretchers).

Role Reversal: Christa Blackwood, Lissa Rivera, And Jessica Yatrofsky

Colorado Photographic Arts Center

March 2 - April 7, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Friday, March 9, 6-9 pm; Featuring Remarks by Christa Blackwood & Jessica Yatrofsky
Lissa Rivera Beautiful Boy Study with Chairs
Lissa Rivera - Beautiful Boy (Study with Chairs 1)

The Colorado Photographic Arts Center presents Role Reversal, an exhibition that presents the work of three women photographers whose images challenge long-held perceptions of beauty and gender roles in visual culture.

Gender disparity has long played an important part in informing the way we look at art and art history. Traditionally, men are the artists and viewers, while women have been confined to play the role of the muse: subjects to be painted, sculpted, and photographed by and from the male perspective.

However, photographs taken by Christa Blackwood, Lissa Rivera, and Jessica Yatrofsky do not exist solely as a counterpoint to the male narrative. Their work is part of a larger conversation about how we see, present, and view others in society.

Nathan Abels, Omne Ignotum Pro Magnifico (every unknown thing appears magnificent), 2017

History of the Future by Nathan Abels embeds contemporary technologies and icons into scenes from a perspective of faith, ritual and religion. These works ask the viewer to assume the role of anthropologist - to decipher the significance of the narrative: what is the significance of the natural world and its characters, any spiritual and religious aspects, and ultimately how these correspond with the celestial?

Sarah Bowling and Mario Zoots: Point of Friction

Curated by Mark Fitzsimmons

DATELINE

February 16 - March 31, 2018

pointoffriction

DATELINE is pleased to present its fourth anniversary exhibition Sarah Bowling and Mario Zoots: Point of Friction, curated by Mark Fitzsimmons.

When two opposing ideas meet there can be violent tectonic shifts, glancing blows, compassionate words or a loving embrace. Friction can push a conversation; it has the power to destroy or create. In searching for these points, Zoots and Bowling search through a collection of amorous notions, mutually held, using separate experiences and perspectives. Point of Friction questions how we project our intimate desires onto our partners, strangers and friends. What does it mean to be in a loving relationship? Can art give us a handful of personal, sometimes diverging, answers to these questions?

DATELINE (est. 2014) Reaching four years is a huge milestone for an art gallery and as such we invite you to join us for our Artist reception and anniversary party for light fare and libations on Friday February 16th, 2018 from 6-11pm. Both artists will be present and would love to share more of their thoughts and process with all of you. Thank you for being supportive of DATELINE for all these years! Here’s to four more!

Terry Maker - Without End - mixed media

Robischon Gallery is pleased to present a multi-part, thought-provoking series featuring five solo exhibitions by artists Tom Judd (PA), Jerry Kunkel (CO/KS), Terry Maker (CO), Jim Sanborn, (D.C.) and Edie Winograde (CO). With a pointed, yet humorous mix of imagery intended to spotlight a range of historical and modern-day cultural controversies, the five distinctive artists on view stir the dialogue in the current American political scene. Painters, Tom Judd’s Disruption and Jerry Kunkel’s RECON TEXT, alongside sculptors Terry Maker’s Point Blank and Jim Sanborn’s Meridian, in addition to photographer Edie Winograde’s Place and Time: Reenactment Pageant, offer their unique works as cleverly provocative visual puzzles for the viewer. With imagination and wide-ranging subject matter – from the American founding fathers and Manifest Destiny to the overt contradictions and clash of cultures, both historic and pop, to the hot button topics of the day such as gun control and the environment – the large and small-scale paintings, sculptures and photography presented, as well as specific installation works, invite investigation in unexpected and thoroughly engaging ways.

Uncanny

Featuring: Roland Bernier, Carol Coates, Malcolm Easton, Mark Penner-Howell, Bryan Leister, Angela Piehl

Walker Fine Art

January 19 - March 10, 2018

MINDSEYECarol Coates - Mind's Eye III

This eclectic group of artists kicks off our 2018 exhibition calendar with work that is surprisingly strange, quirky, and mysterious. Showcasing work in a wide array of mediums that will expectantly make you feel a bit apprehensive, these artists aim to engage the viewer through elements of absurdity, to consider how our perceptions are influenced by what we see. By juxtaposing realism with impracticality, this work may come across as a bit indecipherable, but is nonetheless intelligible.

This exhibit is highly open to interpretation. Opening Reception Date: First Friday June 1st from 5-8pm in conjunction with a district-wide Art Walk, Lakewood's week of INSPIRE and the launch of the new 40 West ArtLine.

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.

Telluride Arts District

Gallery 81435 is a project of Telluride Arts. Telluride Arts promotes a culture of the arts within the Telluride Arts District, which contains a remarkable concentration of arts and cultural activity that engages artists from around the region and across the globe. For more information find us online at http://www.telluridearts.org
