Out of Hand: Tommy Coleman & Sarah Esme Harrison

Gildar Gallery

October 27 - November 30, 2018

  • Curated by Arielle M. Myers
Tommy Coleman | It’s Because I’m Scared | Resin Drawing on Wood Panel | 18 x 24 inches | 2017

Gildar Gallery is pleased to present Out of Hand, an exhibition of works by Tommy Coleman and Sarah Esme Harrison curated by Arielle M. Myers. This exhibition will present the collaborative drawings and individual works of these two New York based artists and recent graduates of Yale University’s MFA program together for the first time.

Vulnerable and genuine, the works in this exhibition are willfully youthful in appearance, utilizing a visual language rich with personal references, and often taking the form of collage-like drawings and paintings. Sarah Esme Harrison’s paintings such as Blue Diary, and Tommy Coleman’s text-drawings such as It’s Because I’m Scared, draw the viewer-reader close with the intimate hyperbole of semi-private self-expression. Like reading old notes passed between friends, or the pages of someone else’s diary, their works look back at moments of coded vulnerability and earnest expression, at times laughably romantic, awkward, and slightly tragic. Both artists are interested in the isolation and interiorization of memory, in contrast to practices of collaboration, where we share the generative processes of thinking and making. Nonetheless, self-consciously mysterious, their large-scale collaborative drawings vibrate with the idiosyncratic qualities of memory. While some images stand out in vivid color and clarity, others lurk on the fringes, verging on obfuscation. In all their works, Coleman and Harrison confront that which is inexpressible, inconstant, and incommunicable. Presenting their audience a window into a relatable yet unreliable past, they also offer a mirror with which to examine our own memory, intimacy, and anxiety.

Don Stinson: Sky Wide

1801 California

August 30 - November 9, 2018

DonStinson BobsBigBoy oi canvas
Don Stinson - Bobs Big Boy - oil on canvas

Arts Brookfield brings works by Don Stinson to their gorgeous lobby gallery in the upcoming free exhibition SKY WIDE which opens on August 30 at 1801 California with a free reception from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Running until November 9, these paintings featuring pop culture and its reflection on the landscape will be on display through Denver Arts Week. Stinson’s panoramas of endless skies and sweeping fields serve as both detailed documentation of a changing landscape as well as commentary on a culture fixated on progress. In his works, Stinson nods to conventions of the Western painting tradition while adding a decidedly modern twist—often with a nod to pop culture.

Don Stinson is a nationally acclaimed artist with works in numerous public and private collections, including the Denver Art Museum, The Phoenix Art Museum, the Art in Embassies Program in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and the Whitney Museum of Western American Art, among others. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including the Colorado Council on the Arts Director's Grant, and the Best of Show at the Coors Art Exhibit at the National Western Stock Show. Stinson received a BFA from Colorado State University and an MFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Tufts University. Stinson currently lives in Evergreen and is represented in Denver by David B. Smith Gallery.

Virginia Maitland Retrospective 1965 - Present

The Arvada Center is proud to present a career retrospective by acclaimed Boulder painter Virginia Maitland. Maitland, long considered one of the region’s premier abstract colorists is featured in a 53-year retrospective, highlighting the evolution and determination of her art practice.

Laura Merage: Nausy Nausy (through December 23, 2018)

Laura Merage’s soft sculpture installation takes over the Arvada Center’s Theatre Gallery with vibrations of color. The title, Nausy Nausy, is meant to evoke the words we coo to children when they pet an animal or touch something fragile, to be nice, to be gentle, to be considerate.

Connected by Color
Featuring Patricia Aaron, Jennifer Ivanovic, Sue Oehme and Jodi Stuart

Connected by Color explores color’s limitless possibilities through the work of four artists. Aaron works in encaustic, Ivanovic pours acrylic paint straight into her composition, Oehme is a master printmaker, and Stuart creates ethereal sculptures using 3D printing pens. Each of these artists take vastly different approaches to color to expose its many different facets.

image009Paco Pomet - The Dualists - oil on canvas 23 ½ x 27 ½ in
Robischon Gallery is pleased to present four provocative solo exhibitions by national and international artists John Buck, Paco Pomet, Fred Stonehouse, and Walter Robinson. The work on view borrows from the visual vocabulary of Magic Realism, the Neo-Surreal, Folk Art, and the satirical cartoon to open a new dialogue within today’s charged socio-political context. With the astounding, massively-scaled, kinetic sculpture of John Buck; the fantastical canvases of Paco Pomet; Fred Stonehouse’s paintings of strange and mythical figures; and Walter Robinson’s deconstructed societal symbols – each artist tells a distinctive story as they fuse the past with the present into something poignant, humorous and altogether unexpected.

About the Dairy Arts Center

The Dairy Arts Center, a nonprofit arts organization, was founded in 1992 to provide cooperative workspaces for local artists and venues for live performance in Boulder County. Originally owned by the Watts-Hardy Dairy, the building’s transformation from a former milk-processing facility to a thriving multi-disciplinary arts hub for Boulder and beyond is a nationally recognized example of constructive urban development and renewal. With its 42,000 square foot facility, the Dairy is Boulder’s largest multidisciplinary art center, housing disciplines ranging from visual arts, theater, and film to dance, comedy, and music, complete with award-winning art galleries, performance venues, teaching studios, offices, rehearsal spaces, dance studios, and a 60-seat art-house cinema.


Denver Public Art calls for qualified artists for new 39th Avenue Greenway and Open Channel project

Entries due by Monday, November 12, 11:59pm Denver time

dpaDenver's Public Art Program, now in its 30th year, seeks to commission an artist or team of artists to create multiple artworks for the 39th Avenue Greenway and Open Channel Public Art Project.

The artwork should celebrate the Clayton and Cole neighborhoods and help instill a sense of continuity throughout the Greenway by providing a progression or a narrative to unify the public spaces.
