Ordinary to Extraordinary - Paintings by Sandy Marvin and Patricia Rucker

Ordinary to Extraordinary - Paintings by Sandy Marvin and Patricia Rucker

Sync Gallery's Third Friday artists' reception will be held on September 20 from 6-9 p.m., and First Friday Art Walk on October 4 from 6-9 p.m.; Exhibition runs September 19 through October 12, 2019.

SYNC Gallery presents Ordinary to Extraordinary with Sandy Marvin and Patricia Rucker

The paintings of Sandy Marvin and Patricia Rucker transform the ordinary of the everyday into extraordinary artistic expression. Sandy’s Odes to Common Things and Patricia’s The Lively Landscape are internal personal responses to the external world. They translate the artists’ emotions and inspirations into the poetry of shape and color, line and gesture.

Sandy Marvin Exhibition Statement

Odes to Common Things: The inspiration for this exhibition of paintings relates to a favorite collection of poems by Pablo Neruda, “Odes to Common Things”. In his poem, “Odes to Things”, Neruda begins, “I have a crazy, crazy love of things. I love pliers, and scissors. I love cups, rings, and bowls - not to speak, of course, of hats.”

This series of pastel paintings expresses the artist’s delight in favorite things - some for the looking at, some the touch, some the use. For some, it is purely shape that fascinates, regardless of purpose. For others it is the perfect consonance of form and function, often the result of long evolution over generations which has resulted in their natural beauty. In some cases, Marvin just finds the objects amusing.

Patricia Rucker Exhibition Statement

The Lively Landscape: Look into the stains of walls, or the ashes of fire, or clouds or mud or like places, in which, if you consider them well, you may find really marvelous ideas. The mind of the painter is stimulated to new discoveries; because, by indistinct things, the mind is stimulated to new invention. – Leonardo da Vinci

Human beings tend to assemble images because of pareidolia, a type of apophenia, involving the perception of images or sounds in random stimuli. The whole world sees “The Man in the Moon”. My paintings begin with a monoprinting process similar to creating inkblots. During the process of folding, and printing on the TerraSkin surface, I have been able to manipulate acrylic paint to create presumptive impressions . . . images that are ALIVE and open to interpretation.

Gallery Hours: Thurs 1-4 p.m.; First and Third Fridays 6-9 p.m.; Other Fridays 1-4 p.m.; Saturdays 12-4 p.m.; By Appt.

Dark Side of Sage
Sep
20
to Oct 10

Dark Side of Sage

Whether your body is covered in “tats”, or you would never think of getting ink, the level of skill and talent behind the original artwork that inspires body art is undeniable. Four of these dedicated tattoo artists from Black Sage Studio in Evergreen, Colorado are featured in the new exhibit the Dark Side of Sage at Bitfactory gallery, 851 Santa Fe Drive in Denver.

Melis Fusco, Brian Henry, Milo Alfring, and Sharon Healy will showcase the diverse styles that they co-create within their studio and the ways they influence and push one another while still maintaining their personal artistic identity. The show includes watercolor, acrylic paintings, oil paintings, wood sculptures, photography and more, ranging from a super small, delicate watercolor on paper to mural size oil paintings on wood. Some of the works in the show have been made into tattoos, some are available as ideas and some are personal works that would be hard to translate onto skin.

The show runs September 20—October 10, 2019. The public is invited to an opening reception on Third Friday, September 20, 6 p.m.-9 p.m. and to view the exhibit through during regular gallery hours, Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., First and Third Fridays 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. or by appointment.

Melis Fusco, founder of Black Sage Studio, has been creating art since 1994 and tattoo art more specifically since 2003, with her art evolving to become more illustrative. For her, painting and tattoo art offers two different experiences. Her tattooing career has brought her all over the world as an award-winning published artist and she creates multiple pieces every week—some larger works taking a year to complete—working within the client’s requested subject matter. Painting, however, brings her freedom of self-expression where subject matter will come and go like visions. Always interesting, always evolving.

California-raised artist, Brian Henry is based in Evergreen making a living as a tattoo artist. He expresses his career trajectory in this way "Brian started creating as a young lad, he got it from his dad. He started drawing with a crayon and now he’s successfully tattooing as a man.”

Milo Alfring has been a tattoo artist since 2006, taking a break in 2010 to earn a BA in painting at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. He returned to the craft, opening two tattoo studios in four years. The primary focus in his art evolved from his practice of tattooing—simplicity and contrast in order to accomplish a clean, readable composition.

Sharon Healy combines a variety of traditional painting techniques in a non-traditional way; many of her pieces use a black-and-white acrylic under-painting and an oil over-painting. By engaging with a broad palette of cultural symbolism, she revives myths in a contemporary context. Particularly, Healy evokes the female figures of our collective unconscious to return the human image to the world of art. Jazmin Montano of Jazmin Arts once said that: “Healy’s work will transport you into the hallucinogenic dreamworld of your archetypal subconscious [sic].” Healy received her BFA from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in 2007 and actively participates in the Denver art scene. Her work is regularly exhibited locally and nationally and has been published in multiple magazines.

Bitfactory Gallery, located in the heart of Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe, exhibits work by the best emerging and up-and-coming local, national and international visual artists. Owner/artist/curator Bill Thomason strives to showcase art that may not be a good fit for other galleries. Additionally, he hosts one major or renowned artist a year, bringing new and exciting work to Denver. The Bitfactory building also houses artist studios with the vision of providing a helpful, friendly atmosphere for artists to work solo or collaborate with others. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., and by appointment. For additional information please contact Bill Thomason at info@bitfactory.net or (303) 862-9367 or visit www.bitfactory.net

Visual Art Interpretations of "A Gentleman in Moscow"
Sep
28
to Nov 8

Visual Art Interpretations of "A Gentleman in Moscow"

The joy of reading and sharing with others in a book club is that, no matter how specifically an author describes scenes and characters, each reader’s imagination renders them in different ways, allowing the experience of a story to be quite varied and personal for each individual. For 10 years, a group of women bonded by their love of reading and their full-time professions as painters and sculptors have been sharing observations during their monthly book club in Denver. It was only recently however that these women had the idea to conjure up their interpretations of a story and bring it to life using their talents as visual artists and then to curate an exhibit of the artworks. The group chose one of their favorite reads, the New York Times Best Seller, A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. The exhibit will feature depictions of selected characters and settings in the novel which tells the story of Count Alexander Rostov who, in 1922 is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin.

Niza Knoll Gallery at 915 Santa Fe Drive will host the exhibit from September 28 - November 8 with an Artist Reception on Sunday, September 29 from 11-3 during the Art of Brunch Art Walk on Denver’s popular Art District on Santa Fe. Visitors are invited to enjoy brunch bites while viewing works at each of the participating galleries. The book club members and exhibiting artists include Nancy Enyart, Lora Freeman, Niza Knoll, Ann Lacy, Sally Lewis, Pat Lickly, Aliki McCain, Kristy Melodia, Ellen Reynolds, and Georgianne Rollman. Hand-built clay, paintings, fabric art, and other mediums will be on display to surprise and delight readers of the novel and inspire others to add it to their reading list. Work will also be available to view and purchase during regular gallery hours, Wednesday-Friday 1-5, Saturdays, 1-4, First and Third Fridays, 4-8 pm and during other special events.

The publisher, Penguin Random House, summarizes the story as follows: “Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery.” And a positive review from tech giant and book lover Bill Gates: “Fun, clever, and surprisingly upbeat . . . A Gentleman in Moscow is an amazing story because it manages to be a little bit of everything. There’s fantastical romance, politics, espionage, parenthood and poetry. The book is technically historical fiction, but you would be just as accurate calling it a thriller or a love story.”

The story, unbeknownst to the artists at the time of planning this exhibit, is also being adapted into a mini-series starring Kenneth Branagh.

In 2009 Niza Knoll Gallery opened in Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe at 915 Santa Fe drive. The gallery specializes in intriguing conceptual exhibits, hosts first and third Friday events, monthly salons, private concerts and guest speakers. Past exhibits have included unusual artist pairings, outsider art, collaborative work, thought-provoking thematic exhibits of artists using non-traditional media. Through a partnership with Kingman Winery the gallery space serves as a tasting room for their fine Colorado wines and is proud to offer their wine for sale during art walks and other special events. The Mix Co-op in the back of the gallery featuring eight artists is also open for visitors during regular hours. Visit www.nizaknollgallery.com for more information.

A Pop-Up Show by The Artist Kelsie

A Pop-Up Show by The Artist Kelsie

Kelsie Young aka The Glitter Freckle aka The Artist Kelsie, burst onto the Denver’s art scene in the late 90’s expressing herself through painting, sculpture, and spiritual study. She was most well-known for her exquisite face and body painting, sharing her gifts everywhere from the club scene, fashion shows, and St. Patrick’s Day parades of Denver, to a national 22 city tour. She became a regular presence painting faces at The Wizard’s Chest for Halloween and the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, through the early 2000’s.

After a several-year hiatus from the public eye, The Artist Kelsie is re-emerging with an evolved sense of self, connection to her creative community, and vision for her current and future work. She is thrilled to share her new, multidimensional art at a one-night pop-up exhibit on First Friday October 4th, 2019 6-9 pm, in The Garage at Bitfactory, in the back of 851 Santa Fe Drive. Throughout the evening, visitors will be able to purchase art and merchandise and enjoy connective entertainment along with several, looped video tutorials showcasing the creative process in collaboration with Paul Peregrine and his team at Peregrine Studios in Denver.

In Kelsie’s new works she explores a range of paint combinations, techniques, and subject matter. "What I use to create a piece completely depends on the piece and its own voice in the creative process. Acrylic, oils, ink, enamel, and sometimes other stuff too. “My goal is that when your eyes meet a work, you will feel it.”

In addition to the pop-up show’s themed works, Kelsie will be exhibiting her piece “The Rescue”. Produced using her exclusive “paint-cutting” technique, this 48" x 64" mixed media on stretched canvas features a horse and rider in a surreal Colorado front range landscape. Her intention is to raise awareness of the Dumb Friend’s League (DFL) equestrian rescue program and she will be donating all of the funds from thesale of this artwork to the DFL. Founded in 1910, the Dumb Friends League, based in Denver, Colorado, is the largest independent, nonprofit community-based animal shelter/humane society in the Rocky Mountain region, caring annually for as many as 20,000 lost and relinquished pets, as well as hundreds of equines.

Kelsie Young (aka The Artist Kelsie) is a diverse multi-media artist that resides in Lakewood, Colorado. She creates mixed media fine art, body art, photography, and experimental performance art.

SYNC Gallery presents With or Without Hue by Lisa Calzavara

Sync Gallery's Third Friday artists' reception will be held on July 19 from 6-9 p.m., First Friday Art Walk on August 2 from 6-9 p.m.; Exhibition runs July 18 through August 10, 2019.

In her new series, Lisa Calzavara explores the idea of telling stories by transforming thoughts and emotions into abstract pictograms that form an unconscious language. The images are an effort to communicate the feelings and emotions that are difficult to put into words. Individual pieces can be combined with others to create greater meaning and express unconscious ideas. We can choose to accept these thoughts or simply change the perspective (orientation) of the piece to alter the meaning or sequence. This allows us to activate our imaginations and create our own unique abstract stories that express our passions, thoughts and dreams.

SYNC Gallery exhibits a variety of contemporary abstract and conceptual works by a collective of emerging and established artists. Each month select members display exciting work with a wide freedom of expression. Located in the Art District on Santa Fe in Denver – known for its vibrant arts scene – SYNC Gallery has become a destination for art lovers.

Gallery hours: Thursday 1-4 p.m., First & Third Friday 6-9 p.m., other Fridays 1-4 p.m., Saturday 12-4 p.m., or by appointment.

Viewpoints

Bitfactory Gallery at 851 Santa Fe Drive is proud to present Viewpoints, a multimedia installation by Swiss artist Brigitte Moeckli and Denver drummer Andreas Schmid. Once a month, over a period of one year, the artists exchanged photographs of scenes they each came across in their daily lives. These images were the source for improvised drum compositions, later mixed together as a soundtrack for the photographs that are partially redirected and projected as an animated time sequence, inviting the viewer to travel through a dream world where different themes create space for personal interpretations and reflections.

The goal of Viewpoints is to create an awareness of time and space as a visual flow where actual physical locality loses its significance. The exhibit has been shown twice in Zurich, Switzerland and in the South of France.
