Harris Deller @ Plinth Gallery

Plinth Gallery
3520 Brighton Blvd 
Denver, CO 80216 

Featuring the ceramics of Harris Deller for October and November.

Deller limits his visual vocabulary using primarily black pigment on white porcelain clay although some recent work has more color inlayed on the surface in addition to his use of black. He makes vessels that he refers to as “provocative contradictions.” Constructed from slabs of porcelain clay, they appear to contain a full volume but as the piece is fully viewed, we see that he has altered our perception by flattening the form, in what he refers to as “abstracted forms with the third dimension suppressed in varying degrees.” There is also an anthropomorphic quality in his work that relates to “stance, gesture and stride.” These human references are derivative of ceramic terminology, such as the base of a vessel being a “foot,” the top edge being a “lip,” and the surface embellishment often noted as “skin or clothing.” Human activity has historically included pottery making and in all cultures, has always been about containment, a necessity for preservation of essential foods and drink. Deller’s ceramic work continues the idea of containment.

The gallery will be open for a reception with the artist on First Friday October 2, from 6pm-9pm and the exhibition will be on display through November 28, 2015. Please join us for this event, which is free and open to the public.


Benson & Tomasso @ ICE Cube Gallery

Ice Cube Gallery
@ the DIF

3320 Walnut Street
Denver, CO 80205

First Friday Celebration: Friday, Oct. 2, 5-9pm 
Closing Reception: Saturday, Oct. 10, Noon-5pm

Regina V. Benson, "Water Marks," uses her signature textile installations and paintings to explore the environmental, social and historical issues surrounding the abundance and scarcity of water. She creates an environment for visitors to pass around and between rivers, sea sides, and tide pools, from afar or close up including dry beds and waterfalls and eddies.

Ray Tomasso, "Memories of an Ancient Sea," features monumental works cast in archival paper and measuring up to 8 feet by 12 feet and 6 inches in depth, with richly detailed, high relief surfaces that are then painted to reveal complex patterns of contrasting textures and graphic sgraffito.



NEXT UP @ Ice Cube Gallery:

Sarah Rockett," Ties that Bind" And "Cluster," and invitational show

Opening Reception: Friday, October 16, 5 - 9pm

Each artist exhibits one work in any media


Double Vision: Sharon Brown and Susan Planalp

Pattern Shop Studio
3349 Blake Street
Denver, CO 80205

The Pattern Shop Studio is pleased to present Double Vision, an exhibit featuring new work by Sharon Brown and Susan Planalp. The show continues with receptions on Friday, October 2nd, and Friday, October 30th from 6-9pm. The gallery will be open to groups and individuals Thursday afternoons and any time by appointment.

In Double Vision, the two artists explore Planalp’s childhood in their own distinctive ways. Sharon creates water colors and oil paintings based on Susan’s old family photographs while Susan, through graphite and ink drawings, expresses the feelings her childhood memories evoke. Sharon colorfully portrays Susan’s family members with unsentimental affection. Like so many memories of our past, they float in white with little contextual detail except for the shadows they cast. Susan’s black and cobalt drawings, on the other hand, depict a sometimes unsettling, dreamlike world of murky figures and abstract shapes. Innocuous items such as a doll’s dress or a pair of mittens are surrounded by darkness, erasures, and blurry fields. Double Vision challenges viewers to contemplate this contrast with respect to their own childhood memories, the nature of memory itself, and the role of art in representing memory.

Sharon Brown and Susan Planalp are well known Colorado artists. For more information about their work and careers, visit and


Stratum & Translucent Winds @ Helikon

Helikon Gallery & Studios
3675 Wynkoop St.
Denver, CO 80216

Simultaneous Opening - Stratum: New Works by Naomi Scheck & Peter Yumi and Translucent Winds: Justin Ankenbauer

Enjoy two shows under one roof! Coffee and espresso available plus open studios.

Stratum is an exhibition between Scheck and Yumi that features never before seen large and small scale abstract works from both artists. Viewers will experience a staggering amount of detail whether they are up close or viewing from afar, owing to Scheck’s almost unbelievable dedication to micro-details and Yumi’s keen eye for the beauty within gritty fragments of paper, photo, and paint.

Translucent Winds is an open ended process. The works display the painting process as a way to understand change when a painter habitually moves a paintbrush into organic structures. These structures cause the painter to react. Working through personal variables such as nervous energy, reactions and habits leaves clues for viewers to navigate from one piece to the next, which causes an emotional ripple.

October @ Ironton Studios & Gallery

Ironton Studios & Gallery
3636 Chestnut

Mind over Matter,
a drawing show by Teresa Booth Brown

September 11th through October 17th
Open First Friday October 2nd, 6-9pm
Gallery Hours: Open Monday-Friday 10am- 4pm, Saturday noon-4pm

Mind over Matter is a drawing show of more than 150 works on paper created on the pages of discarded textbooks, teaching materials, obsolete foreign currency, etc. The drawings combine found paper materials with layers of graphite powder, drawing, erasures, and collage. Layers are both added and removed to reveal aspects beneath the surface while re-organizing the page with new forms. I want to transform the materials in order that they offer the viewer a new experience.

Colorado Artist Teresa Booth Brown studied at The Museum Art School, Reed College, Bennington College and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She has been a resident artist at The Anderson Ranch Arts Center, twice a resident at the Ucross Foundation, and a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome. Her work can be seen at Michael Warren Contemporary Gallery in Denver.
