The art tour was fun last night. The town was anxiously awaiting the re-opening of Rule Gallery in their new space on Santa Fe. The building is owned by Mary Mackey, a Denver artist who is a star on the local scene. Mary’s studio is in the rear of the building.
Paddy and his latest crush, the hotel clerk, picked me up. We had dinner and then headed to Rule. Valerie and Hilary took us into the back room to view some Wes Kennedy pieces not included in the current show. The pieces were stunning.
Our next stop was Mike Smith gallery in Lodo were parking is next to impossible. The art was good and prices were high. The next stop was the co-ops on Navajo where we met up with Jacqueline. Louis Recchia and some great pieces at Pirate. His wife, Zoa Ace, has a few pieces there too.
After the galleries we stopped at Interstate for cocktails and a late night nosh. It was an enjoyable night.
The hotel clerk is a handsome young stud. I hope Paddy keep this one around for a while. He can properly conjugate a verb which seems to be just one of his many talents.
