The Art of Architecture

The Art of Architecture

January 5 - First Friday Reception
January 19 – Meet the Artists Reception
February 2 – First Friday Reception

With another new year unfolding, thoughts turn to grand plans, big ideas, and changes ahead. Here at Access Gallery we are no different. 

We like to think big. What if we had an opportunity to rethink our home? Part of our magic is the community fostered by creating a safe, welcoming environment. Many of our artists come from challenging circumstances and see Access Gallery as their home away from home. So we imagined a physical community built around our artists– a place to create, sell, and live. We believe in the power of well-designed space to truly make the world better, so we asked: What could a fully integrated and inclusive Access Gallery look like?

CU Denver College of Architecture and Planning students came to our home, met our artists, and asked what a perfect Access Gallery might look like. The resulting designs create a wonderfully inclusive and inspired home for us. This show presents the full concepts from initial ideas to working models, highlighting the artistic nature behind the work. 

Denver Architectural Foundation facilitated the project with an innovative partnership grant from the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District - SCFD

The image was created by University of Colorado Denver student, Luis Navarrete. He listened to our artists’ interest in dragons and used that as a core concept.

Niza Knoll Solo Show

Niza Knoll Solo Show

Multi-disciplinary artist Niza Knoll enters 2018 with an exhibit of her own work in her namesake gallery at 915 Santa Fe Drive from January 13-March 2. She is expanding on her series of pieces inspired by Botticelli’s famous “Birth of Venus” painting in addition to showing sculptures, photography and new abstract paintings. The public is invited to an Artist Reception on Friday, January 19 from 5-8 during the Art District on Santa Fe’s Third Friday Art Walk, and to view and purchase work during regular business hours, Wednesday-Friday 1-5 pm, Saturday 1-4 pm and during First and Third Friday Art Walks in March from 4-8 pm.

Niza Knoll was born in Haifa, Israel and as a child lived in Vienna, Paris, and Montreal, before settling in a diverse immigrant neighborhood in New York. “Throughout my life I have had to learn to express myself in many languages and adapt to a mix of cultures.” Says Knoll, “I believe this need to discover and create various ways to communicate pushed me to become a multi-disciplinary artist.” She seeks out and studies different media—acrylic and oil, photography, graphic design, stone, clay and motion art—constantly in search of the form, or combination of forms, that will best allow her to express herself. She is currently exploring abstract painting and finds it challenging is that is “…difficult not to tell a story or depict an image. It is an ongoing process which I will continue to explore.”

Knoll received her formal training in painting and graphic design at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Before becoming a full-time visual artist and gallery owner she had two rewarding careers as a graphic designer and a teacher of painting and photography.

The Tales of Any Every: Twin Art By Vincent Cheap Fasano and Charly Fasano
Nov

to Nov 28

The Tales of Any Every: Twin Art By Vincent Cheap Fasano and Charly Fasano

Tales of Any Every is a multimedia collaboration of short films, music, poetry and paintings created by the Fasano twins. Installments of the project will roll out in a series of short films, art shows, poetry performances, books and records. Any Every is a small world trapped in the twin’s brains which incorporates a joint aesthetic based on personal experiences and observations of everyday life in Denver, Colorado. Any Every is an evolving cast of characters with skewed and selective memories of old, down and brown Denver. Any Every is a tribute to people stuck in old habits surrounded by cranes building a new city. Any Every is a place where characters are caged by progress in an evolving city they refuse to leave.


Charly “the city mouse” Fasano is a poet, filmmaker, painter and block printer from Denver, CO. He has released two spoken word records accompanied by the music of Memphis’ Lucero. His short animated films have appeared at the No Budget Film Festival, Blackbird Film Festival and won a jury prize at Machinimo Expo 2014.
