Stillness of Identity by Nijole Rasmussen

  • Alliance Française de Denver Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Alliance Française de Denver presents "Stillness Identity" by Nijole Rasmussen beginning March 1st, 2019 through April 30th, 2019.

Artist Statement: To paint for me is to access the deepest, remotest and most private corners of my imagination, where I can be free to welcome many opportunities for happy accidents to appear. With this language of shapes and colors, my desire is to communicate to the viewer my thoughts, emotions, that unique perception of the reality that later he can himself create his own world and live there protected by this illuminate power of art. Art is a harmony of nature, soul and spirit. It gives me power to express myself without much involvement of the rational mind. This harmony that my eyes can welcome and my soul can respond, is the result of my art. When I paint, it seems that my soul takes better shape, that longing for life and beauty and empowers creative process, which was already there long time ago… Nature influences my art. Where nature ends, my abstract forms begin its journey. Perhaps the path traveled matters little. The will to arrive is sufficient. Giving preference to form, shape and color, I am led to unknown places, places where beautiful world exits, the world I am willing to share with the like minded. The beauty understood has this power to illuminate the senses, still the mind and enchant the heart. My vision to interpret the reality in abstract form is my saying yes to spirituality, beauty and life.

Artist Bio: Nijolė Rasmussen was born and raised in Lithuania. Since 1992 she has lived in Denver, Colorado, USA. The journey through life has taken her to photography, and eventually to painting, which has been her passion for the last 7 years. With some guidance from professional artists, she is mainly self-taught and derives her inspiration from nature, travels, and love of art. She loves to read and does so in several languages, and enjoys writing poetry. Nijolė has had many exhibitions in Denver and one solo exhibition in Chicago. Her art also is represented by art gallery in Lisbon, Portugal.

Positioned: Featuring Artwork by Annette Coleman and Jean Smith

Jean Smith's current work is based on the feel of the Mid-Century Modern decorating shapes and placement from the mid 60’s and 70’s. Each wall composition can be an entity of its own or joined with others to create a larger design element. She uses clay, stains, and glazes to create the 3D components of the pieces.

Annette Coleman's current interest deals with art in the public realm. This installation represents an idea that could be translated for a public space or a home.

SYNC Gallery Presents ENIGMA by Pam Fortner
Mar

to Apr 13

SYNC Gallery Presents ENIGMA by Pam Fortner

Much of Pam Fortner’s work is an enigma - perplexing and fanciful; yet vaguely familiar. It evokes forms that surround us, forms seen every day, but at such a minuscule scale that they often exist unnoticed.

Pam is inspired by the minutiae of nature and draws from the anatomy and structure of living things for her artwork. Her creative process is enigmatic. At the point of conception, her ideas are whimsical and mysterious - seemingly impossible to bring into physical form. She approaches each idea as if it were a puzzle to be worked out. With her unconventional combination of welding and bookbinding skills, Pam solves the conundrum. The use of steel provides a sturdy architecture on which she binds paper allowing her to magnify the scale of her pieces from the minute to the fantastic.

With this exhibit, Pam brings her love of the insignificant world to the forefront, where it takes on a curious appeal.

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

Horizon's Harmonies: New Work by Charles Parson

Mai Wyn Fine Art presents Horizon’s Harmonies, a solo exhibition by renowned artist Charles Parson. The intimate gallery setting will feature a selection of new dimensional drawings and sculpture by the prolific Denver artist. Meet Charles Parson at the Opening Reception, Friday, March 15 from 6-8 p.m. which coincides with 3rd Friday Collectors’ Preview in the Art District on Santa Fe. Horizon’s Harmonies continues through April 13, 2019.

For the last forty years Charles Parson’s work has kept focus on the horizon. Known for his monumental sculpture and outdoor installations comprised of heavy steel i-beams, thick glass, hardware and wire, Parson takes a step aside to focus on more intimate works inspired by his daily drawing practice and love of the American West. Still utilizing strong horizontal lines, minimal color and industrial hardware, Parson’s new “dimensional drawings” incorporate finely drafted mountain vistas and cloud laden horizons adding a sense of time and place to the work. An accompaniment of new, garden-size sculptures are also included in the exhibition.

Charles Parson has over 80 solo exhibitions under his belt along with extensive participation in group shows, large-scale installations, and monumental public sculptures throughout the United States. He’s written two books and has been reviewed and featured in numerous local, regional and national newspapers, magazines, books, radio and television. After retiring from full-time teaching last year, Parson hasn’t lost a step maintaining a Resource Artist position and studio at Redline in Denver. Most recently Charles shared the spotlight with his two artist sons Collin Parson and Devon Parson in a two-pronged exhibition entitled Three Views on view now through the end of March at Lakewood Cultural Center in Lakewood, CO and Durango Art Center in Durango, CO.

Mystery Achievements

to Apr 11

Mystery Achievements

Bitfactory Gallery presents Mystery Achievements, a two-artist exhibition with a focus on Assemblage Art. Both artists paint and work in an assemblage/collage environment. Jason Cope works primarily with found objects and paints said found objects into his collages. Mark Risius is on a journey of painting canvases, cutting them up, and then weaving them back together for a completely unique and non-traditional approach to painting.

Jason Cope - work is influenced by the unknown, the unseen, and this strange phenomenon we call existence. Working somewhere between collage and assemblage, he creates scenes of complex systems that drive and destroy this vast ecology of nature and ourselves.

Mark Risius - woven canvas collages explore assemblage, the imaginative process, and transforming paintings into a unique genre of art. Mark’s creative desire for distinctive aesthetics is evident in every aspect of these works from his choice of color and style to the crafting of the handmade wooden frames.

Opening Reception will be on Third Friday, March 15th, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and the exhibition runs through Thursday, April 11th.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., and by appointment.

Core New Art Space Exhibits Diverse Work by Five Denver Artists

Core New Art Space Exhibits Diverse Work by Five Denver Artists

Rita Bhasin, Carrie MaKenna, Sandy Marvin and Bev Ruiz take over the Core New Art Space walls and exhibit a colorful mixture of work. All artists work in a bold array of colors and textures, making their work blend beautifully. Bhasin’s paintings express the tactile, bold and colorful quality of her love for the outdoors, ancient cultures and natural materials. MaKenna's work explores The Universal Circle through painting, sculpture and play. It’s a culmination of 30 years of interest, study, practice and teaching about the Circle as a unique Universal Pattern and Spiritual Resource. Marvin is a contemporary realist painter who enjoys painting with pastel plus dashes of other media in the mix. Ruiz's art reflects the bold and vivid colors she sees in nature and everyday life.  Primarily a studio painter, she shares her artistic expression through imaginative layers of bold colors, textures, and brush strokes.

In the Core annex space, David Dunbar exhibits work that is borne of one single uninterrupted line which never crosses over itself and has a clear beginning but a very inconspicuous ending. The mixture of puzzle and art makes Dunbar's work highly intriguing.

Opening Reception: Friday, February 15, 6-9pm

The Parks

As our nation’s leadership shifts its environmental priorities from protection to exploitation, it is critical, now more than ever, for citizens to appreciate and explore the treasured landscapes that have inspired inhabitants of our continent for centuries.

To that end, artist Topher Straus chose to use the vast National Park system, established 150 years ago, as a blueprint for his unconventional representational landscapes featured in a new exhibit at Niza Knoll Gallery entitled “The Parks.” Straus highlights popular vistas through spectacular 30” x 60” paintings on metal with the goal of providing a personal and rich experience for the viewer, much like when visiting the parks themselves.

The show runs January 11 through February 16, 2019 at 915 Santa Fe Drive with the public invited to view and purchase work at an artist’s reception during the Third Friday Art Walk on January 18, 5-8 p.m. and during regular gallery winter hours, Wednesday through Saturday 1-4 p.m., First and Third Friday 4-8 p.m. and by appointment.

Morphogenesis
Jan
10
to Feb 16

Morphogenesis

Space Gallery is pleased to present our annual figurative exhibition featuring the work of emerging artist Julia Sanders and internationally recognized artist William Stoehr. Blurring the lines between realism and abstraction, both artists rely on the viewer’s subjective participation to deepen the reality beyond the mere image.

Sanders highlights the struggle separating the self and contemporary culture. To her, “morphogenesis refers to the innate desire for entity and environment to become one,” which can be seen in the swirling and twisting of her paint brush. Challenging the static historical portrayal of the female figure, Sanders also explores themes of fertility and dissolution, both visually and metaphorically as her figures simultaneously dissolve and take shape.

Stoehr’s artwork also focuses on the human condition. The essence of his art is the exploration of fundamental issues of our time. He explores intolerance, discrimination, addiction, violence and war with its victims, witnesses and survivors. While Sanders mingles figure with background, Stoehr isolates his figures for the viewer to subjectively respond to. Both artists work freely; dripping, brushing and pouring paint. To this Stoehr adds touches and hints of realism. He often paints facial features slightly out of alignment or paints vaguely different expressions for each side of the face. These variations might make his images appear more real as time, half remembered memories, and prior experiences affect your perception.

Since her childhood she has always been in or part of a creative process, drawing, painting, woodworking, sculpture, assemblage, making jewelry and sewing. Born in France, she taught in Belgium, Switzerland and later in the U.S. Jacqueline currently resides in Colorado where she continues to give free rein to her creativity.
