A childhood spent in the beautiful seaside city of Odessa, Ukraine, has had a lifelong influence on artist Lyudmila Agrich. Now a Denver resident, Lyudmila’s lush and luminous canvases created entirely with a palette knife, have become her trademark, capturing the very light that entranced her as a child. Her newest work, to be unveiled at Mirada Fine Art on October 5th, once again reveals the mastery of her craft. Entitled “Impressionable: A Visual Journey,” the collection of paintings allows us to join Agrich along this wondrous artistic path.

 "Going Out of Business Sale" A Retrospective: Tom Vail | Sept 15 – Nov 11, Regional & Hoag Galleries
Vail was born in Hollywood, CA in 1946. He says in his artist statement, “Writing about my art work is an exercise I find difficult. I could go into the formal aspects of my art but the most important part is unexplainable. In the collages, a dark humor about the human condition seems to be a recurring element — the use of collage to attack bourgeois values with its own propaganda images. The kinetic photographs explore the space-time dynamics using the female figure as subject.” The images were printed using photo, silkscreen, hand-tint prints, and archival digital prints.

Contemporary Western | Sept 22 – Jan 20, 2nd Floor Foyer
This exhibit features selected works from the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center’s extensive collection of contemporary western art. We will feature well-known contemporary artists such as Donna Howell-Sickles, Paul Pletka, Fritz Scholder and R.C. Gorman. Local and regional artists including Orlin Helgoe, Terry Galusha, and Judith Pierce will also be represented.

Western Romance From the King Collection | Oct 5 – Jan 13, King Gallery
Francis King’s original donation of artworks in 1979 forms the cornerstone of the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center’s permanent collection. For nearly 40 years, Mr. King, the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center, and other generous donors have been augmenting this fabulous collection. This exhibit will feature some of the best-known names in traditional Western art, including John Clymer, Frank McCarthy, Joseph Sharpe, Gerald Cassidy, and Oscar Berninghaus.

Mendoza | Mendoza | Oct 13 – Jan 13, White Gallery
JOHN L. MENDOZA: The work of John L. Mendoza is a diary of the man and his view of life. His oil paintings and watercolors bespeak romance, nostalgia, and natural beauty. Many of his paintings display dual characteristics. They are gentle yet passionate, simple yet detailed, bold yet subtle, and concrete yet abstract. His work includes contemporary, oil, and watercolor landscapes, as well as still life, abstracts, and portraits.
DOROTHY J. MENDOZA: Exploring different media and technique has been the history of Dorothy’s paintings. Always curious to explore the various methods of artistic expression, Dorothy began painting in oils. She continued to work for years in gouche and watercolor. In 1998, she began experimenting with acrylics, merging the fluid transparent quality of watercolor with the opacity of oils and gouche. The result is exciting and vibrant paintings full of color and spirit.

Harnessing Light: Marietta Patricia Leis, Debbie Long & Mary Shaffer

Harwood Museum of Art, Taos

August 4 - October 7, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Saturday August 4th, 3-5 PM
  • Curator: J. Matthew Thomas
MariettaLeis e
Marietta Patricia Leis - Winter Lyrics

New Mexico based artist Marietta Patricia Leis will be exhibiting her multimedia works with artists Debbie Long and Mary Shaffer in the exhibition Harnessing Light. Curator J. Matthew Thomas selected these 3 artists who by different paths converge on a common focus: light on surface. Leis’ art contributes a contrast to the other artists as she captures light’s tenebrous illumination of darkness in her graphite acrylic pieces, prints on metal, small sculptures and oil paintings on wood. Her approach to this marriage of two extremes presents us with a duality of lightness and dark, for without one there cannot be the other.

Becoming immersed in the soft nebulous incandescence of the arctic, Leis’ eyes forgot the programming of modern artificial lighting and she began to see the nuances and elegant shades of darkness more clear. Leis’ intention is to present unique visions of the natural world. Through her art, she hopes to make viewers more acutely aware of the fragile beauty and tenuous future of our planet so that we may seek ways to preserve it for generations.

Taos was Leis’ first home in New Mexico after she migrated from Los Angeles in 1982. She considers her time in Taos as decompressing and centering after years of working in the endlessly illuminated cityscapes of New York and LA. Leis is honored to be exhibiting at the Harwood Museum of Art in Taos, and feels a deep gratitude for the place that gave her such peace and serenity.

Melanie Warsinske & Joe Boddy, ELEMENTAL Combined image of two of their works

Mirada Fine Art presents two remarkable artists with almost 80 years of combined artistic experience and their contemporary interpretation of nature. Taking cues from her surroundings, local artist Melanie Warsinske translates elements—water, clouds, mountains, human and animal forms—into visual emotion and movement captured on canvas. Her richly textural work simultaneously exudes drama and serenity. Similarly inspired by the elements of Earth and our human struggle to live together, Joe Boddy’s sculpture epitomizes multi-media. ‘Rejected’ items take on a new life as fine art. Fired clay seamlessly combines with glass, discarded tools, cast iron farm equipment and recycled wood, resulting in beautifully organic pieces. These two amazing artists unite, brought together by a shared awe of Nature, at Mirada Fine Art for this Elemental exhibit.

Now Rhymes with Then: Works by Paul Gillis

Rule Marfa

July 13 - September 23, 2018

WHEN KINGSHIP ASCENDS TO HEAVEN
When Kingship Ascends to Heaven, 2018, oil on canvas, 40 x 40 inches


RULE Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Paul Gillis entitled Now Rhymes With Then. Colorado based artist Paul Gillis has spent his career contemplating and commenting on the cyclic nature of the human experience. Using anthropomorphic figures and culturally iconic imagery he creates complex and surreal narrative works that explore these ideas. Influenced by the Chicago Imagists movement, as well as the style of many underground comics of the 60’s and 70’s, his art has the feel of a comic book panel or the cell of an animated movie, inviting the viewer to build a storyline around each scene presented. Here, in the early 21st century, Gillis has watched the events and trends of our times as they echo similar periods throughout the past. In recognizing this re-enactment, he is drawn to a quote from Mark Twain, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes”. In his exhibition, Now Rhymes With Then, Gillis has developed a body of work with the same sense of familiarity and progression; pieces have similar subjects, motifs and content that appears to be telling the same tale. In actuality, they reveal how the ages of civilization and the stories we communicate are all expressions of our fundamental realization that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Paul Gillis was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1941 and was raised in Los Angeles, CA. After spending several years in the Air Force, he moved to Colorado in 1967 and received his BFA in painting from University of Colorado Denver in 1970 and his MFA in painting from the University of Colorado Boulder in 1976. In the 1960’s and 70’s he became associated with a group of significant Colorado artists working in Boulder who founded the counter-cultural movements of Drop City and Criss-Cross. In 1979, Gillis, along with several others, founded SPARK Gallery, one of the first artists’ co-operative galleries in Colorado, This gallery is still active today, making it one of the longest running cooperatives in the Western United States. Gillis’s work has been displayed in numerous solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums including the Denver Art Museum, Boulder Center for the Visual Arts, Museum of Contemporary Arts Denver, and the Singer Gallery, Denver. His work has also shown in Santa Fe, NM; Austin, TX; San Francisco, CA and San Diego, CA.

Marcio Diaz: Life in a BUBBLE (a contemporary exhibit)

Marcio Diaz, Under the Moonlight, Original Acrylic on Canvas, 30" x 40"

Nicaraguan artist Marcio Diaz’s work reflects the saturated hues of his rural childhood. A move to the U.S. Pacific Northwest as an adult helped refine his distinct style, a cross between Jackson Pollock and pointillism It is a style Marcio simply calls ‘bubblism.’ As if seeing images through the distortion of raindrops, Marco draws a background scene, drips paint, applies heat, and wipes it down innumerable times, followed by layer after layer of circles of color, reinforcing and harmonizing his compositions. The end result is truly mesmerizing. This is Marcio's first solo exhibition east of the Pacifica Northwest...don't miss it!

Trine Bumiller

Centenary: Selections from 100 Paintings for 100 Years

Gallery 81435 (Telluride)

March 1 - April 30, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Thursday, March 1, 5-8 pm
trine
Trine Bumiller’s 100 Paintings for 100 Years is a series of 100 paintings that were inspired by a residency during the centennial year of Rocky Mountain National Park, but evolved into something much greater, an immersive experience, both in practice and in installation, that points to our human need to record, remember, and reflect. The works are meditations on our relationship to nature, and, through various perspectives, present a deconstructed portrait of the landscape. They advance the dialogue between abstraction and representation, resting somewhere between the two; as if between experience and memory lies true reality.

The oil paintings are painstakingly created with the application of fifty transparent oil glazes, over a year’s time. The soft edges of the paint layers add an additional level of organic form, balanced against the overriding geometric structure and arrangement of the panels. The process itself is a study in abstraction through iterations of focus. The sheer number is an exercise in obsession and perseverance and relates small parts to an infinite whole in many ways: a step becomes a mile, becomes a journey; a moment becomes an hour, a year and 100 years; and a brushstroke becomes a painting, becoming a series of 100 paintings.

Trine Bumiller explores the relationship between memory and experience through paintings and installations that balance on the edge of both abstract and environmental concerns. She has a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and studied in Rome with the European Honors Program. Trine has had many exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Solo shows include the McNichols Building in Denver, the University of Wyoming Art Museum, the Las Cruces Museum of Art and most recently at the International Arts Festival of Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina. She has received grants from Colorado Council on the Arts and Colorado Federation of the Arts and been an artist in residence at Yaddo, Denali National Park, and Rocky Mountain National Park. Her work has been reviewed in Art in America, artltd., ArtNews, the New Art Examiner, the Christian Science Monitor, the Denver Post, and Westword. She is on the board of Denver Art Museum’s DAM Contemporaries. She is represented by Robischon Gallery, Denver, Markel Fine Arts, New York and Zg Gallery, Chicago.

  • First Friday Art Party: February 2 from 4:30-7:30pm; from 5:30-6:00 artist Yoshitomo Saito will give a tour of his exhibition
  • Also on display: Takaamanohara, two videos by Japanese artist Chiho Aoshima
yoshi
Born in Tokyo, Japan but residing in the United States since 1983, Yoshitomo Saito finds inspiration in the minutia of the natural world, drawing out details of the environment surrounding us and elements of everyday experiences that most would miss or take for granted. In 2006, Saito moved to the Rocky Mountain region in search of a new and affordable live/work situation to pursue the lifestyle of a fully engaged independent artist. Utilizing the Italian lost-wax process of bronze casting at his Ironton Studios foundry in the RiNo Art District of Denver, the artist freezes delicate, organic objects in time and assembles them into immersive, meditative, thoughtful and sometimes humorous installations.

Sue McNally: This Land is My Land

Chuck Kimmerle: From the Heart:Land

Museum of Art, Fort Collins

​January 19 – March 18, 2018

CloudOverWheatField Colorado
Chuck Kimmerle, Cloud Over Cut Wheat Field, digital photography, Courtesy of the Artist

The series of paintings exhibited in This Land Is My Land is part of a much larger project that Sue McNally is working on to paint a landscape in all fifty states. The selection shown here represents the west through her eyes and vantage point and how the magnificent landscapes and varied terrain in states such as New Mexico, Colorado and Washington, for example, shape us as residents and tourists. Since 2010, with her first painting of Devil's Tower in Wyoming, McNally has crossed the country to try and see America as a whole through her relationship with its different landscapes, some iconic and some personal. This Land Is My Land represents one artist reckoning with our culture and what it means to be an American, starting with our land and the views that we mythologize and hold sacred.

Chuck Kimmerle’s landscape photography centers primarily around the intersections of where man and nature meet. These areas, which now seem to be the norm of our landscape, offer an insight and significance which cannot be found in nature alone, according to the artist. Kimmerle works exclusively in black and white with its inherently graphic format, which allows him the maximum opportunities for creative exploration.

ICONOCLASM: Jonathan Dankenbring & Corey Drieth

GOCA 121 (Downtown Colorado Springs)

December 1, 2017 - March 17, 2018

  • Opening reception: Friday December 1 from 5-9pm; gallery conversation with the artists starting at 5:30pm
goca
Colorado-based artists Jonathan Dankenbring and Corey Drieth will exhibit new works in sculpture, drawing and mixed-media, exploring the concept of iconoclasm - a rejection of images and iconography - and minimalism. The exhibition's genesis was a conversation between the artists about minimalism and art; their dialogue continues and is explored through the exhibition and an accompanying broadside publication.

Minimalist art is marked by an avoidance of overt symbolism and emotional content, instead calling attention to the materiality of the works through a limited palette and simple media. This art movement emerged in the early 1960s and applied to a wide range of artists who were overtly rejecting the energy-filled and emotionally charged art of the Abstract Expressionist movement. Artists such as Frank Stella, Robert Irwin, Agnes Martin, and Donald Judd questioned the very existence of painting and sculpture as they rejected the very labels applied to them. At its core, Minimalism asserts that art should have its own reality and not be an imitation of some other thing.

Galleries of Contemporary Art (GOCA) is a regional hub of contemporary art, culture, and conversation. By featuring world-class artists, hosting artist and expert talks, and offering meaningful events, GOCA engages University of Colorado Colorado Springs students, faculty, staff and Pikes Peak Region community members in contemporary culture and life. GOCA is a contemporary arts organization with two galleries, one founded on the UCCS campus in 1981 and a satellite downtown location that opened in 2010 in the Plaza of the Rockies building.

Small Works is an exhibition that will pull you closer—quite literally—to photography. These 12-inch and smaller sized images range from Polaroid photos to precious metal pieces. Every small work portrays a unique story from each artist. "I decided not to let other artists’ motives be what guided my own. Instead, I would use what I needed from them in order to express my feelings regarding my own small place in the Universe. For me, the resulting imaginary realities feel more relevant than the realities expressed in the scientific language of quantum particles, billions of light years, and infinite accelerations.” –Artist Jeannie Hutchins. Visit us to see these small works while they are here!

Salvador Dalí, Destino #27, Pen, ink, watercolor on buff paper. Collection of Dr. Wayne F. Yakes 

Salvador Dalí (1904 – 1989) & Pablo Picasso (1881- 1973) are two of the most well-known artists in all of 20th century art.

Both were master draftsmen, creative pioneers in many artistic movements throughout the 20th century and moved freely between many mediums. This exhibition will feature the intimate drawings, prints and sketches of both Dalí and Picasso from the collection of Dr. Wayne F. Yakes. Among the highlights, the exhibition will showcase Dalí’s rendering of Dante’s Divine Comedy with 100 prints made from his exquisite watercolors. Fun hands-on educational projects for the entire family will also be in our Art.Edu.Osity Creative Space for the run of the exhibition.

Portfolio ShowCase 10 brings together the collective works of ten artists. "When we look at the creative process, photographing a single successful image is not all that difficult. This applies to amateurs and professional photographers alike. Facebook and Instagram are full of one-hit wonders, and some are memorably nice. Even artists have those one-off images they just had to photograph. Developing an entire series, however, is a completely different matter. It not only requires exponentially more skill, but also real courage to dig deep into oneself to create a fully rounded, multifaceted project. Once the series exists, the real challenge of culling the coveted portfolio begins.” -Juror Hannah Frieser 2017

"The photography world is changing at a rapid pace as historical processes meld with contemporary digital work. Common themes throughout artwork such as the human condition, relation to the land, identity, sexuality, secrets, still life, and abstraction are all represented in Center Forward. Specific to photography are works that hint at artistic process and the history and evolution of the medium. These uncommon works evoke history while claiming new territory. As a whole, the works in this exhibition culminate in an experience of history, life, love, loss, and ultimately, magic." –Hamidah Glasgow 2017
