Squirrel Watch

I saw this piece at Access Gallery last Friday night.

Howard Harris, Squirrel Watch, dye sublimation on aluminum, $1,100.

I found this description of Access online:

Some people with disabilities are artists, too, and VSA Colorado supplies such talents with tools, mentorship and a leg up on successful self-expression. The organization also gives its young artists a place to show their work in public, at Access Gallery. Affordable urban folk art, streetwise canvases and even commissioned dog portraits are available through Access.

Repurposing An Dead Tree

I saw this sculpture in the East 7th Avenue Historic District on Wednesday on my way to the concert at the Denver Botanic Garden. The owners of a dead tree used the remains to build an innovative and interesting yard sculpture. How cool is that?

Best In Show

The usual suspects hit the First Friday art walk on Santa Fe tonight. The street was closed down making navagation a breeze. A pletora of food trucks served up tasty offerings. This is my favorite from the art tour tonight.

A Mixed Media Night

Michael Warren Contemporary had the best art I saw on Friday evening. The new exhibit showcases Kelton Osborn’s mixed media collages comprised of acrylic, graphite and pastel on paper. The exhibit also includes mixed media pieces by Andrew Roberts-Gray which consisted of paint and silk screen on sand blasted mirror affixed to panel. Sadly, I forgot to take pictures of Andrew Roberts-Gray’s pieces.

Kelton Osborn, Breach, Motion Simulator and Snare, acrylic, graphite and pastel on paper, 36″ x 28″, $2,200 each

Spark had interesting and affordable small works by Sue Simon and Susan Rubin.

Charles Livingston’s installation at Pirate was constructed out of recycled bicycle inner tubes stretched over wood frames. The piece also included video monitors in small rooms created by the panels. A subdued soundtrack played abstract sounds adding to the experience. Charles also exhibited red and black wood block prints.

Charles Livingston, Sensory Pod, Permutation #14 and #4, mono prints, water base block print ink on sumi paper, $400 each
