Art Exhibits, Lectures & Special Events


Open Space - Finite Frontier

When: January 6 - February 28
Reception: Saturday, January 13 6:00pm- 8:00pm
Curator's Talk: Saturday, January 27 1-3pm
Where: Curtis Center for the Arts

The American West, once the uncharted, undiscovered territory is not without its limitations. This picturesque open landscape is now shared with man’s footprint of over development, industrial pollution and destructive mining practices.  On the contrary, the ever-growing city brings us modern day conveniences, cutting-edge technology, infrastructure and anthropological opportunities. This exhibition explores the wild frontier juxtaposed with the urban habitat, and how we as humans both resist and rely on these finite environments. This exhibit is curated by Robin Whatley, Program Coordinator at the
Art Students League of Denver.

Our Planet

When: April 7 - May 5
Earth Day Celebration: Saturday, April 21th 10am-2pm
Where: Curtis Center for the Arts

This exhibition was created to artistically explore issues regarding the sustainability of our planet’s environment. It seems that nearly every day we hear about or witness something that is changing our planet’s climate and environment, and as artists our surroundings are a vital element in the creation of our work.   In this show artists explore what’s happening and what might be done to address the sustainability of our planet.  Each work has an artist statement that connects it to the theme of the exhibition.  A small group of artists led by Bob Doyle, artist and Greenwood Village resident, curated this show with the objective of connecting art to the environmental wonders, changes and threats we are now experiencing.   We encourage all to join with us in creating powerful displays and messages that sensitize and motivate others to join in the preservation of our earthly home.

Chasing 360Exploring the Creative Process of Five Colorado Abstract Artists

When: Sept 1- Oct 27
Artist Reception: Saturday, September 8 6-8pm
Where: Curtis Center for the Arts

The inspiration for this exhibition evolved out of the artists meeting to connect about their work and process. Artist Jessica Magee coined the phrase “Chasing 360” as a metaphor for the feeling an artist has as they work- in a sense, as if they are chasing their tail or running in circles. While some artworks seem to come together effortlessly, often there are a multitude of variations and experimentations before a painting finally comes full circle and feels “finished.” The artists included in “Chasing 360” allow themselves to surrender to this process, making the resolution in their work unpredictable and intriguing. Artists included in this exhibit: Kristen Abbott, Deidre Adams, Molly Berger, Jessica Magee, and Julia Rymer. For more information and images click here
