Previews: Christina Empedocles – “As Evidenced” @ David B. Smith Gallery

Check out a preview of Christina Empedocles’ latest body of work, titled “As Evidenced”, to premiere this Friday at Denver’s David B. Smith Gallery.  The charming works by Empedocles lures you in with a 3D feel created by her technique of rendering everyday objects on paper.  Utilizing subjects such as birds, animals, people, and even personal memorabilia set on simple plain paper, she masterfully constructs a nostalgic presence and a unique visual texture that is almost hyper-realistic to the viewer.  The show opens this Friday […]

Preview / Installation: AJ Fosik & Bill McRight – “Count Back From Nothing” @ David B. Smith Gallery

David B. Smith Gallery weighs in this month with yet another stellar looking exhibition opening Friday, July 16th with the pairing of sculptors AJ Fosik and Bill McRight in the two person show “Count Back From Nothing”. Fosik’s three dimensional animalia sculptures have jumped off the walls at us here at AM on many occasions before, and we’re always excited to see what this artist brings with each set of new work. The layering of found wood and other elements that goes into each of […]

Armory Week ’10: Scope New York

We attended the preview of Scope New York last Wednesday and visited the fair again on Saturday, and with the exception of stand-out booths by Anonymous, David B. Smith and newcomers Jackie Paper, found the fair to be somewhat disappointing overall. The show seemed small, not just relative to the enormous size of this year’s Armory Show, but compared with this year’s Scope Miami or last year’s Scope NY. And the overall selection and quality seemed to be down as well, with not a lot […]

Preview: David B. Smith Gallery @ Scope NY 2010

Another must see fair during Armory Week is Scope New York, which always has an impressive list of galleries from around the world showing cutting-edge emerging artists. One such gallery is our mile-high friends from David B. Smith Gallery, who were nice enough to give us a sneak peak at what they’ll be showing this year, including stunning pieces by Gregory Euclide, Christina Empedocles, Jason Theilke, Kristen Schiele and Jud Bergeron. The VIP preview for Scope NY 2010 opens later today, and AM will certainly […]

Releases: Josh Keyes Book – “Sprout Catalog”

If you’re like us at AM, you can’t wait until Josh Keyes’ (interviewed) show  at Jonathan Levine Gallery (previewed). But to keep his eager fans happy in the meantime, David B. Smith Gallery will be releasing a hardback book next Tuesday cataloging his recent “Sprout” show (covered) and related pieces. We got an in depth look at this book at the DBS’ SCOPE booth and we must say that this book is not only gorgeous, but also features several multi-page layouts of some of Keyes’ best works to […]

Studio Visits/Interviews: Jason Thielke – “New Works” @ David B. Smith Gallery

On our recent trip to Denver to see Josh Keyes’ “Sprout” exhibition, AM met with Jason Thielke, who’s latest solo show entitled simply “New Works” opens this Friday, July 17th at the new downtown location of the David B. Smith Gallery. We’ve been interested in Thielke’s work for a while now, and in particular his technique utilizing a method he calls gel transfer, which results in an aesthetic delight of super-clean vector-like line work. Recently, he has changed things up a bit and is now […]

Update: Josh Keyes – “Sprout” @ David B. Smith Gallery

All of us here at AM are big fans of Josh Keyes’ work, and after our recent trip to Denver for the opening of his latest solo show “Sprout” at David B. Smith Gallery, we thought it would be interesting to look at the interactive installations again after they have been in place for a few weeks to see just how the sprouting went… Read on for more pictures after the jump.
