Mack, Paddy and I started the art tour on Friday night on Santa Fe. We saw a great show at Artwork Network. Karen Roehl’s abstract paintings were my favorites. We also stopped in Michael Warren Contemporary to talk with the guys and see their new show featuring small abstracts by Theresa Booth Brown in the main gallery. We also stopped in Sync to talk to Brenda LaBier. Paddy bought two small pieces at Sync before we headed over to Rule in RiNo to meet up with Perry.
I liked two red prints at Rule but they were out of my price range. Perry had been at Rule for a while so she was able to confirm the rumors the gallery has to move. A developer bought the whole block for $15m to build luxury condos. Hinterland Art Space will also have to relocate since they share the building with Rule. A group show at Helikon was the last stop in RiNo. I had mixed feeling about this show but there was one great piece my Mark Penner-Howell.
The final stops on the art tour were the galleries on Navajo Street. Next, Pirate and Edge all had openings while ZIP37’s show opened last week. Pirate has an installation taking up the main room that consists of inflatable white sculptures. Next and Edge had group shows with some great pieces in each gallery.
Perry left the group after Navajo street while the rest of us went to The Little Devil on South Broadway for a drink. London was picked up along the way. Jacqueline met us there. I was concerned about being around London, given his recent history of violent behavior while drinking, but Paddy said London stopped taking Adderal.
London was on his best behavior but only stayed for one drink. He soon called an Uber to take him downtown to meet other friends. The rest of us stayed for a while before calling it a night.
