  • Google Calendar ICS

The Alliance Française de Denver presents "Unshakable Gaze" by Catalina Vasquez-Kennedy beginning July 5th, 2019 through August 31st, 2019.

Artist Statement: 'Unshakable Gaze' -- My work in conservation forces me to look intently into other artists’ works. I have trained my eye to inspect intimately art objects in order to understand their physical qualities, to appreciate their aesthetic value, and to recognize their various levels of meaning as I evaluate any visible changes brought about by time. I derive enormous pleasure from contemplating images that have come alive through the interplay of shapes and colors, and light and shadows, with their nuanced surface qualities, and I truly enjoy rendering my own version of what I observe – be it a striking detail in a work of art, an arresting moment captured in a photograph, or just simple objects or quiet events witnessed in the tangible world. Beauty surrounds me and moves me to produce representational works of art like these shown in this gallery.

Atelier Durst: Hand-Built Clay Invitational
Jul
19
to Sep 21

Atelier Durst: Hand-Built Clay Invitational

Upon entering the studio and gallery of Peter Durst, the creative energy is palpable. Visitors are greeted with a collection of his large, architectural, hand-built clay pieces that delightfully fill the gallery area, boasting strength and whimsey. Resident ceramicists and students are hard at work in the back, clearly enjoying each other’s company, with peals of laughter and chatter echoing throughout the space. As an artist who has studied under Durst for several years, Niza Knoll decided to bring some of the infectious energy he has created into her own Gallery. Niza Knoll Gallery will showcase hand-built clay works by fellow students, and by Durst himself, in a new exhibit entitled “Atelier Durst”, on view from July 19- September 21, 2019 at 915 Santa Fe Drive.

The public is invited to an artist reception on Friday, August 23 from 5-8 p.m. and to visit during regular gallery hours, Wednesday–Friday 1-5 p.m., Saturday 1-4 p.m., First and Third Friday, 5-8 p.m.

Exhibiting artists are Joyce Anttila, Peter Durst, Nancy Enyart, Trish Gans, Niza Knoll, Amy Laugesen, Julia Mulligan, Gulnar Rawji, Holley Sanford, Mark Stokesbury, Carol Warzel.

The simple definition of the French word Atelier is: “an artist's or designer's studio or workroom” The atelier tradition however is a practice that reaches back to Renaissance Italy in which a master artist opens his studio to a select group of dedicated students, assistants and apprentices who would work together producing pieces of fine art released under the master's name or supervision. The practice waned in popularity the 19th century, as the art academy became a preferred method to train burgeoning artists, but remains today in a modern form, as a way to pass down artistic knowledge. The term and tradition remains common in the fashion industry.

Viewpoints
Aug

to Sep 12

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.

SYNC Gallery Presents "With or Without Hue" by Lisa Calzavara

SYNC Gallery Presents "With or Without Hue" by Lisa Calzavara

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.

Hardcore Chastity Couture

Ira Sherman: Hardcore Chastity Couture

Bitfactory Galley is thrilled to announce a solo sculpture exhibition by veteran Denver artist Ira Sherman. This current body of work beautifully melds Sherman’s skills as a metalsmith and jeweler with his technical prowess and moral commitments. Sherman’s artistic project is inspired by a desire to create dialogue around the subject of sexual assault, and his ingenious mechanized works enlist humor and opulence to engage viewers with this issue. Sherman’s elegant steel undergarments relate to historical chastity belts worn to guard women’s virtue, which he reinterprets as sophisticated fashion that provides safe and sexy armored protection. The resulting metal couture transforms wearers into tangible and symbolic guardians of their own bodies. While others can look, they can’t touch, unless granted consensual access. Designed for both men and women they generously allow one to be both inviting and invincible. Sherman's "Hardcore Chastity Couture" is closely aligned with Alexander McQueen’s bold conceptual fashions, and both artists share a desire to empower the wearer through their adventurous work.

Bitfactory Gallery | 851 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, CO 80204

Opening Reception: July 19, 2019 6-10 p.m.

On View: July 19 - August 8, 2019

View more information: www.irasherman.com bitfactory.net

“Sherman’s chastity couture has been riveting audiences on runways and catwalks at fashion shows across the nation. These kinetic, and kinky, wearable sculptures become the ideal costumes for performative art; like a steampunk Victoria’s Secret lingerie show. When encountered in a gallery context, off the semi-nude bodies of models, these elaborate fashion statements are no less provoking or sexually charged. And the absent model makes it easier to imagine oneself wearing these daring fashions, allowing for greater vicarious experience and understanding.” -Suzanne Ramljak, Author & Curator
