GEORGIA

March 16th, 2019

I love this city. The music, the art, the scenery, the people; it’s all top notch. One of the greatest things about Denver is the DIY community. It takes a special kind of person to pour their heart and soul, not to mention blood, sweat, and tears, into a project to benefit others. It takes a special kind of community to nurture these projects and help them thrive. Denver is an ideal in both of these aspects. We’ve had more than our fair share of legendary underground music venues, but now we have a slightly different DIY gem. The soon-to-be-all-the-rage garage gallery, GEORGIA. You... Read More

Processus

March 9th, 2019

Processus is a gallery/studio located in the heart of RiNo. Since 2014, they’ve been providing a co-working space for printmaking, photography, woodworking, sculpting, and digital arts. Founders and resident artists Christopher Perez and Viviane Le Courtois sought to build a place where people could come to learn, experiment, and create. It’s part studio, part classroom, and part gallery. They offer a wide range of classes and all the tools and studio space needed for whatever you’re working on. A community studio is a huge advantage to up-and-coming artists. Instead of renting... Read More

Month of Photography

March 2nd, 2019

March is the month of photography in the art community and galleries all over Denver will be hosting events to celebrate. Literally hundreds of photographers will be featured at dozens of galleries, coffee shops, and art spaces. There will be exhibitions, Q&A’s, guided tours, lectures, and so much more. A month isn’t long enough, but it does give you time to check quite a few of these off your list. Niza Knoll Gallery will be showing a series from Randall Sampson titled, 3631: A Solo Cycling Journey Across America. Sampson is a former lawyer and amateur photographer. Last August... Read More

Natura Obscura

February 23rd, 2019

When it comes to art exhibitions, interactive installations are in a league of their own. They’re becoming more and more popular thanks to groups like Meow Wolf, Punchdrunk, and Denver’s own Prismajic. They mix large-scale art installations with theatrics and curiosity to transform the viewer into an active participant. Each installation is unique and typically temporary. The Museum of Outdoor Art is currently hosting one such project called Natura Obscura. Natura Obscura is a fully immersive art experience. If you’ve been to Meow Wolf in Santa Fe, this will be a familiar concept.... Read More

Where Have All the Festivals Gone?

February 16th, 2019

If you’re anything like me, now is the time of year to start thinking about summer concerts. With Christmas and Valentine’s Day expenses out of the way, I can blow all of my money on shows without feeling selfish until around Thanksgiving. You may have heard the news lately about some festivals that will not be happening in Denver this year. I won’t try to hide the fact that I’m a little bummed about it. Was it something we did? Were we too nice? Is Denver so wonderful that people go home and tell their friends it sucks so nobody else will come spoil the natural beauty?... Read More

The Blooming of the Buffalo Rose

February 9th, 2019

Golden is nothing if not historic. We hold on tightly to our western roots and the nostalgia runs deep in this town. Everything is also a little old-fashioned. When I was little I remember not being able to skateboard downtown because the sidewalks were still made of uneven wooden planks. True story. I’d look out the window and watch the tumbleweeds blow by, wishing I had access to a swimming pool like Jay Adams and Tony Alva. I never did become a pro skateboarder, but I have managed to learn quite a bit about local dive bars and music venues. We all find our own little niche I guess. Golden... Read More

Gallery 1505

February 3rd, 2019

Sometimes it can be hard to find the right piece of art for your particular space. There’s more to it than just finding a painting you like and hanging it any old place. You wouldn’t want your house to get that weird hotel room vibe, where the art looks obligatory. Have you ever looked at the posters on the ceiling at the dentist’s office and wondered how much thought went into choosing them? Art should be more than just a distraction to fill space. Let’s face it, while any art is better than a blank wall, some of it can seem like the visual equivalent of elevator music.... Read More

Millers and Rossi

January 26th, 2019

Millers and Rossi is a contemporary art gallery in the RiNo art district. They show a wide range of works spanning a variety of media. Representing mostly locals, their artist list is small but resounding. Each and every artist represented is exceptional. Art isn’t the only thing Millers and Rossi has to offer, however. It’s also a speakeasy with an awesome bar in the back. An art gallery with a bar? Take my money! I was a little concerned at first that the gallery might be more of a side note to the speakeasy aspect. This was not the case. The gallery holds its own. They have a diverse... Read More

Rhinoceropolis

January 19th, 2019

Take a second to examine your computer. If you happen to notice a slight heat coming from the screen, fear not. It’s merely a byproduct of the sheer joy and excitement emanating from the topic of this article. The entire city has been anxiously awaiting the final fate of our beloved DIY venues and THE VERDICT IS IN! Well, somewhat. On a couple of them at least. I could not be more ecstatic to announce that Denver’s premier venue for underground shows of all kinds, Rhinoceropolis, is reopening! In a recent Westword interview, operator John Golter said that he’s just putting the... Read More
