View from the gym window while sitting on the incline bench press machine. I like the way the sun shade filters the view.

Is The Man Bun Dead?

Yesterday, Mack and I met up with a few other guys at the Sunday afternoon beer bust. The holiday weekend guaranteed a substantial crowd. One thing I noticed was a lack of man buns. Many of the younger guys were sporting trendy barber cuts with a sharp part on the side. There wasn’t a man bun in sight. This made me wonder if the man bun trend has died? I do hope so.

Just Three Stops

I ended up doing the art tour by myself on Friday night. Perry and I managed to meet up at my last stop.

My first stop was the Joyce Coco opening at Spark. The show did not disappoint. Joyce has a fresh and bright color palette in the new works

Spark Gallery, Joyce Coco, Memories, oil on canvas, 50 x 48, $3,700

My next stop was the regional printmaking exhibition at CVA (Center for Visual Art). The show is outstanding. It’s a true representation of the artist talent in the region. The gallery was packed so I’ll need to go back for second look.

My final stop was the Jean Smith opening at Zip37. Once again, Jean has put a fresh spin on her clay works. This time Jean used 3-d shapes in wall groups. The results have a mid-century modern feel. This yet another in a long line of inspiring and creative exhibits that only Jean could produce.

Art, Art and More Art

Wednesday evening I attended the opening of Color: Works by Teresa Booth Brown at the Denver Botanic Garden’s York Street facility. Teresa is represented by Michael Warren Contemporary. It’s a great presentation that I want to see again. Almost all the works are diptychs priced at $6,500.

There’s also an Alexander Calder sculpture exhibit at Botanic Garden which I have yet to see. Cindi wants to take it in together so I’ve been waiting for an opening in her hectic schedule.

Tonight, Perry and I attended the opening of the Denver Art Museum’s The Western: An Epic in Art and Film. It’s a multimedia presentation examining the Western genre from the mid-1800’s to the present. I loved it. The curators were able to incorporate Warhol and Lichtenstein. Imagine that!

Tomorrow, the usual suspects are assembling for art openings: Joyce Coco at Spark, Jean Smith at Zip37 and a regional juried printmaking exhibition at CVA which includes artists who live within 528 miles of Denver (a take-off on the mile high city and 5280 feet in a mile).

More to come, including a few pics.
