November @ ICE Cube Gallery

Ice Cube Gallery @ the DIF
3320 Walnut Street
Denver, CO 80205

Ashley Frazier - Here and There
Through the chronology of collected human hair, Here and There presents a schema of pluralistic concepts ranging from identity, to loss, to control, to memory.

Paul Sisson - Not So Far From Here
Not so Far From Here is a unique photographic portrait of the Western American landscape, emphasizing the journey, rather than the destination. Paul seeks beauty in non-traditional places; showing a crumbling rural culture, and finding humor in simple and subtle ways.

Gallery Hours: Thurs/Saturday noon - 5 PM; Friday noon - 9 PM
