Jakie Says Hello, Vincent Xeus

Just outside Larimer Square, sits Gallery 1261. Located at 1412 Wazee Street, it shares a space with K Contemporary and Abend Gallery, forming a colorful, cultural trifecta.

Tansey is a contemporary art gallery in the heart of LoDo. They offer exquisite pieces by well established artists, demonstrating highly refined techniques. While Tansey displays pieces from a variety of mediums, special emphasis is placed on sculptures. Crafted from glass, ceramic, wood, fiber, and many other mediums, each and every piece is a stunning example of imagination and craftsmanship. Originally located in Santa Fe, Tansey Contemporary is a welcome addition to Denver’s ever-growing art scene. Art in itself is beautiful and engaging, but the setting in which it is viewed is important... Read More

Valkarie Gallery is the brainchild of Valerie Savarie and Karrie York. It was initially imagined as a space to create and show the work of artists like themselves back in 2013.

The collective itself includes watercolor artists, jewelers, paper cut artists, book sculptors, graphic designers and photographers.

Incredulous, Cymon Padilla

Leon Gallery is a fantastic place to be immersed in a sea of creativity. Located in a historic building off of 17th and Park Avenue, they host solo and group exhibitions from incredibly creative, innovative minds. Most galleries operate on commission, but Leon has chosen the non-profit approach. This allows them to incorporate a wider variety of artists with much more freedom of expression. For owners Eric Dallimore and Eric Nord, this is much more than just an exhibition space. It’s a staging area for community involvement and social change. They work to reduce stigmas around social issues,... Read More

Spectra Art Space

April 21st, 2018

In the spirit of journalistic integrity, I have to admit I have a slightly biased opinion about this week’s location. I already knew how rad one of the owners was prior to writing this. But don’t let my conflict of interest dissuade you from checking out Spectra Art Space on South Broadway, it deserves all the praise I can bestow. I stopped in for the first time a few days ago and saw my friend Sadie Young, the mastermind behind the operation. Spectra opened just last year at 1836 S Broadway and its already well established. The entrance to the gallery opens up into a large main room. There... Read More
