On the EDGE

October 27th, 2017

Edge Gallery is a small yet fascinating gallery in the 40 West Arts District just west of downtown Denver in Lakewood. Edge displays work by artists working in various mediums. There were artists working in silk dying and coloring, an interesting number with what appeared to be a wedding dress on display and decorated with objects which I assume held some sort of significance for the artist, Wynne Reynolds, abstract paintings, and other mixed media projects. The thing that stands in my mind about Edge Gallery is its welcoming and friendly atmosphere; everyone seemed to be having a good time and... Read More

What’s NEXT? An Art Gallery

October 18th, 2017

Next Gallery has a good variety of artists. There is photography and graphic arts, interesting mixed media, embroidery, 3-d art and more. The main artists that have exhibits up there currently are Chris Buske with “Crossing Borders,” and Jordan Lyn with “The End.” Of course there are works by other artists scattered around the gallery such as some of the mixed media work of Adrienne DeLoe, whose pieces incorporating natural elements into her art never fail to amaze me! The bulk of the pieces were smaller pieces from Buske consisting of photos, sketches, and graphics which... Read More

Lakewood Arts: Up and Coming in 40 West

October 10th, 2017

Lakewood Arts had a very good show for the 40 West First Friday this past Friday. There was everything from classy mosaics to watercolors and acrylics to delightful textile designs. They had a folksy live band playing in the back and several gallery attendants to attend to our needs, one of them even came up and introduced herself and had a nice chat. I found the artwork impressive and alluring. The gallery did NOT seem snobbish or stuck up but was rather open and friendly, very welcoming to all who came in, which is just the way I like it! This was one of those great galleries where it seems like... Read More

Taylor Wells is a multitalented photographer, graphic designer, video editor, and pretty much anything else that catches his artistic interest. His abstract photography uses various combinations of graphic design by modifying photos with different angles, perspectives, shapes, or adding different colors and textures to create his vivid images. His interest in photography began when he was just 5 years old when his grandmother gave him her camera to experiment with at the zoo, “I just took random pictures of things. You would have never thought I was actually at the zoo, that was probably the... Read More

I’ll Tell You About Teller Street Gallery

October 5th, 2017

Teller Street Art Gallery and Studios is on 38th Street in Wheat Ridge, CO, west of Denver. It’s a hidden gem! The place is down-to-earth and fun but also has some very talented and innovative art in the gallery. The great thing about Teller is that it is a very functional space. Gallery owner and artist Nicole Anderson and fellow artist Kaylie instruct art classes to the public for a reasonable price-they are what are known as the paint-and-sip art classes generally lasting no more than 3 hours, at the end of which the participant has a finished painting to take home with her at the end... Read More

Artist Spotlight – James Bohling

September 27th, 2017

    Living in Colorado, we have grown accustomed to the beautiful scenery we see every day. Something like a drive through the mountains or the colors in the sky above seem to go unnoticed. For James Bohling, his art captures not just the beauty of Colorado and the Midwest, but paints a literal picture that help the viewer experience and remember scenes we often take for granted. Bohling grew up around the countryside of Nebraska and Colorado where life was simple, quiet, and self-sufficient. He first started getting into painting when he was in college, taking different art courses... Read More
