Pattern Shop Studio hosts Art Students League of Denver

Pattern Shop Studio
3349 Blake Street

Unfinished, An Art Students League of Denver Invitational Exhibition

Join us as the Pattern Shop Studio plays host to the Faculty and Students of the Art Students League of Denver. The result is an interesting mix of art, in subject matter, type and type of media. Entitled "Unfinished" the invitational presents artists with the challenge to show work in process. Unfinished work can offer insight into an artist's creative process and having such work on display can lead to many questions, such as “What does it mean for a work of art to be finished?” and “Why is it considered unfinished?”

"Unfinished" will be up until August 18. 
Viewing hours will be Thursdays from 12 to 5 PM and by appointment.

Pedestrian Advocacy on the Move in Denver

Denver’s pedestrian advocacy movement gained momentum recently, reaching two important milestones. In April, Denver was nationally recognized with a “Gold” Walk Friendly Community designation, and in May Kaiser Permanente awarded a substantial grant to the grassroots advocacy organization, WalkDenver.

WalkDenver has launched a petition calling upon City officials to take two actions: form a pedestrian advisory committee and adopt a strategic plan for improving pedestrian infrastructure. In addition to collecting signatures from individuals, WalkDenver is also gathering letters of support from partner organizations, as well as seeking individual and corporate sponsors for both its advocacy work and additional Better Block events.

“Six Faces of Eve” @ ArtHaus

3343 Larimer Street
Denver, CO 80205

Women artists showcase
their variations
of a shared language.
“Six Faces of Eve”, June 13 - July 25

The Six Faces of Eve exhibit at ArtHaus features six outstanding woman artists—Leona Lazar (image shown), Keri Mills, Susan Brooks, Mandy Scott, Aliki McCain and Kathryn Hart —and their variations of a shared language. Each built bodies of work around a variety of themes including sexuality, social issues, cultural myths and traditions. Popular culture associates the term “Faces of Eve” with a 1950’s book and movie about one young woman’s struggle with multiple personality disorder. This exhibition, however, explores the unique perspective of six individuals and asks a central question: is there a common language being spoken by these six artists that is informed specifically by their gender?

Opening Reception: Friday, June 13, 6-9 pm
Artists' Lecture: Saturday, June 21, 1-3 pm
Collector's Cocktail Reception: Saturday, June 21, 5-7 pm – RSVP Required
Closing Reception: Friday, July 25, 6-9 pm


Tom Kerrigan exhibiting @ Plinth Gallery

Plinth Gallery
3520 Brighton Blvd
Denver, CO 80216

Desert Influences
Ceramic Work by Tom Kerrigan

Kerrigan’s work is deeply influenced by his Sonoran Desert surroundings. An introspective artist, he finds this location a “source of spiritual sustenance.” Some of his sculptural forms and vessels are “quiet and meditative, yet others are both bold and direct, reference a sensual or erotic theme.” On the surfaces of some forms he makes use of playful markings, almost sketch-like drawings incised into the surface and then highlighted with ceramic pigment. These images resemble human forms, desert forms such as cactus, or the sun and moon. These markings emphasize the connection he has with his surrounding environment. His hand built and constructed pieces also have combinations of unglazed clay, drawings, as well as glazed surfaces using various ceramic pigments and techniques. The contrasting surfaces also present an interesting counterpoint to his strong forms. 

Plinth Gallery curator Jonathan Kaplan remarks, “I am very excited to have an artist of his stature exhibiting at Plinth Gallery. He brings a considerable wealth of experience with his innovative techniques of making sculptural vessels. His work has a very quiet yet dominating presence.”

The gallery will be closed from July 4 through July 15 and will reopen July 16th. Kerrigan’s exhibition will be on display through July 26th.
