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.

The recently opened three-story Mercedes-Benz of Denver which, ironically, is in Glendale. There’s a massive new BMW dealership two doors south. Both are owned by the same corporation.

Different Wiring

Cindi’s house is under contract after lengthy negotiations. One buyer wanted Cindi to cut down three hundred trees on her land. Who buys land in a heavily forested canyon and then wants most of the trees cut down? She’s moving out on Friday just a week before the closing. It’s the end of an era of mountain living and the start of a new adventure in the New Mexican desert.

Most of Cindi’s furnishing are going into storage. She’ll be homeless for a few months. Friends will be hosting her in various states. She’ll also be horseback riding in Spain for ten days. Cindi is bringing her art collection to my house for safe keeping. I’ll get the hang two very expensive paintings in my house until she finds new digs in Santa Fe. The rest will be stored in the basement. I’ve cautioned her that my insurance will not cover her artwork if my house burns down.

I amazed at how Cindi can throw caution to the wind and turn her life upside down. Closing a business, selling a house, vacationing in Spain all without one clue as to where she’s going to live, or, if her art will support her. I’m not wired the same way.

A Pic A Day 22

Resting in bed with the French doors open as another day comes to life. It’s hard to believe snow was falling two days ago. That’s life in Colorado.
