Openings: Souther Salazar & Tobias Fike – “Today is the Day” & “Then and Now and Then” @ David B. Smith Gallery

Forsaking his adopted hometown of Portland for several weeks, Souther Salazar traveled to Denver in order to bring a new installation to life at the David B. Smith Gallery. Working onsite, he created a snow covered landscape full of sloth like creatures ensnared in conflict with a thin tongued beast rising out of a colorful pool. Titled Today is the Day, it includes all of the signature Salazar elements including his color palate and the feeling of boundless imagination. Despite the violent motif, the piece […]

Basel Week Miami ’13: Miami Project

The Miami Project successfully launched its second rendition during Basel week with a well-curated selection of U.S. galleries, including such notable names as Yossi Milo, Joshua Liner, Mark Moore, Richard Heller and David B.

Overall, Miami Project was well-attended, and both galleries and collectors seemed very enthusiastic about the showing. Below is a […]

Releases: ‘Untitled’ / Bon Iver album art by Gregory Euclide

If you previously have had the pleasure of seeing Minnesota artist Gregory Euclide’s work in person, then you will surely attest to what a immersive experience his multi-dimensional mixed media work can be. David B Smith Gallery, who represents his work in Denver, have just published a limited edition giclee print – titled Untitled. You may be wondering how one of Euclide’s works would translate into an essentially flat medium, but the original image was created with 2-dimensional representation in mind as it features as cover […]

Previews: Jason Thielke – ‘Zero-zero’ @ David B Smith Gallery

David B. Smith Gallery in Denver’s next exhibition will be Zero-zero – a new collection of work from Jason Thielke. Unlike Thielke’s recent work where he uses gel transfer and laser etching to produce his compositions, Zero-zero promises an entirely fresh body of work comprised of drawn and painted works. It’s been almost 2 years since Thielke’s last solo exhibition of New Works at DBS where AM interviewed him ahead of the show. He tells us that Zero-zero is about achieving a hazy or obscure […]

Preview: Ryan McLennan – “New Works” @ David B. Smith Gallery

New York-based artist, Ryan McLennan, will be traveling to Denver this coming weekend with a new body of work in tote for art enthusiasts in the Mile High City. Opening Friday, January 28th in tandem with Laura Ball (previewed) at David B. Smith Gallery, New Works (teased) will showcase the adept painterly realism coupled with subtly surrealistic compositions for which the West Collection recognized as worthy of their Grand Prize last year. An impressive accomplishment, indeed, for the young artist, who’s work centers around a […]

Preview: Laura Ball – “New Works” @ David B. Smith Gallery

As part of a two person exhibition on tap next weekend at David B. Smith Gallery, Laura Ball will bring her animal imagery to Denver in striking fashion. Opening Friday, January 28th, New Works (teased) will highlight a series of the California artist’s watercolor works on paper, where colorfully rendered landscapes are set upon stark white backdrops thus sharpening the drama of the scenarios. Disparate animals are playfully clumped together as one to create larger animal forms, perhaps proving commentary on the interconnectedness of all […]

Opening Friday, January 28th, along side Laura Ball (teased), New Works will continue Ryan’s playful, yet intelligent artistic narrative incorporating themes of ecology, natural history, and evolution.

Teaser: Josh Keyes – “The Magicians Garden” @ Fecal Face Dot Gallery

Tirelessly sketching, Josh Keyes continues the neverending evolution of his dystopian narrative in preparation for his next solo exhibition, entitled The Magicians Garden, at Fecal Face Dot Gallery in San Francisco. Opening April 7th, Josh recently stated in an interview the new body of work “will showcase imagery that plays on genetic mutations in a post apocalyptic setting”. If the meticulously executed reference drawing above is any indication of what is in store, the show should continue Josh’s uncanny ability to break new conceptual and […]

Preview: Robert Hardgrave – “Relic” @ David B. Smith Gallery

Robert Hardgrave is set to reveal the newest chapter of his experimental work in free-form abstraction this Friday, December 17th at the David B. Smith Gallery. Gaining traction over the years with his organic and psychedelic compositions, the Seattle based artist appears to have tapped into whole new realm of expression with his newest body of work, Relic. While still incorporating some of his more conventional richly rendered acrylic paintings, the exhibition also takes the viewer in a new direction, showcasing a series of “sculptural” […]
