Openings: Kris Lewis @ David B. Smith Gallery

Last week, Kris Lewis (interviewed) returned (see 2011 & 2009) for a new showing at the David B. Smith Gallery in Denver. The exhibition included a series of paintings featuring his exquisite portraiture which shows the California-based artist’s reverence for the old masters as well as his technical prowess. Add to that a gift for the emotive touch as well as creating works that really connect with the viewer and you have something special. The show runs through the end of the month, so definitely stop by if you are in the area. Photo […]

Update: Space//Form Group Exhibition @ Breeze Block Gallery

Updates come constantly as the participants share their excitement about creating work for the show, and getting to see  some of the creative process that goes into the work is always a pleasure. Space//Form opens in just a couple of weeks time now in Portland at Breeze Block Gallery and here […]

Upcoming: Kris Lewis @ David B. Smith Gallery

Coming up in October, the David B. Smith Gallery will be hosting a new solo exhibition from Kris Lewis (interviewed).
