Showing: Titi Freak – “In A Dream” @ Black Book Gallery

Earlier this month, the Black Book Gallery in Denver opened In A Dream, a new solo from Titi Freak. Sending over works from Brazil, the artist known for his street art made his heritage and his two years apprenticing in Japan count by letting their influence shine through. The new body of work is centered around a large 10 panel wood piece featuring a koi fish, and supported by loose portraits as well as a wall of leaves. Take a look at more photos from the exhibition below… Photos via […]

Videos: Cole Sternberg – “all his strength was concentrated in his fists, including the very strength that held him upright” @ David B. Smith Gallery

Last month, the David B. Smith Gallery presented the works of Cole Sternberg in a solo show entitled all his strength was concentrated in his fists, including the very strength that held him upright, a line from Franz Kafka’s unfinished work, Amerika. Exploring the troubling social issues highlighted in the book including stratified social hierarchies, widespread discrimination, blind worship of capitalism, and the destruction of the environment, the work was organized two site-specific installations – a cloud like mural overlayed by over-painted photographs, collage, and mixed media on […]

Openings: Laura Ball – “Minotaur” @ David B. Smith

Preview: Laura Ball – “Minotaur” @ David B. Smith

Tomorrow night in Denver, the David B. Smith Gallery will be exhibiting all new paintings from Southern California-based Laura Ball.

While exploring the PULSE art fair (covered) in Miami, we came across several of the paintings that will be in the show. Take a look at some photos below, including […]

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 […]

Upcoming: Gregory Euclide @ David B. Smith Gallery

It looks like all the pieces for  Gregory Euclide’s upcoming show in Denver at the David B. Smith Gallery have arrived safely. Along with his intriguing paintings which include both two-dimensional and three-dimensional elements, Euclide has also been working in the project room on one of those whiteboard paintings (seen below) that his fans have been impressed with recently.  If you recall, he worked on some of these pieces at the school he teaches at for educational purposes and eventually released a series of prints based on them.
