WHERE: MCA Denver 1484 Delgany St Denver, CO 80202In Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty, the exhibition explores in detail the myriad image choices Minter has made as a painter and photographer, the evolution of her style and technique, and her mode of production, including her organization of an unusual studio of assistants trained to create hyper-real, sometimes dizzyingly painted surfaces. Pretty/Dirty illustrates Minter’s progress from a curious youth looking critically at the domestic landscape before her to the media-savvy cultural producer whose images simultaneously define and critique our times.

WHERE: Plinth Gallery 3520 Brighton Blvd Denver CO 80216 Located in the River North Art DistrictDeller is a recipient of a Fullbright Fellowship, an excellence in teaching award from the National Council on Education in the Ceramic Arts, and is a member of the International Academy of Ceramics. His ceramic vessels have been widely exhibited and anthologized. Deller limits his visual vocabulary using primarily black pigment on white porcelain clay. He makes vessels that he refers to “provocative contradictions.” Deller exploits the dimensional qualities by purposely minimizes depth, or that third dimension. 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.” Plinth Gallery Curator Jonathan Kaplan views Harris Deller’s ceramic work as “a study of how formal elements are abstracted. His vessel forms suggest larger volumes but are dimensionally manipulated. His work is mature and extremely thoughtful. I am pleased to present Harris Deller’s ceramics to our Denver and Front Range audience.

WHERE: Abend Gallery, 2260 E Colfax Ave., Denver, CO 80206Abend Gallery presents Elsa Sroka and Stephanie Hartshorn Two Person Exhibition November 6 – 28, 2015 Opening Reception Friday, November 6, 6-9 p.m. DENVER, CO. – Abend Gallery is proud to present a two person exhibition featuring the works of gallery artists Elsa Sroka and Stephanie Hartshorn. The work of Elsa Sroka and Stephanie Hartshorn are vastly different but with a closer look it becomes clear they share some similarities. While Sroka’s paintings inhabit a more dream-like world, Hartshorn’s are more pragmatic in style. In terms of subject matter animals and imaginative landscapes are represented in Sroka’s work while Hartshorn’s adapt the forgotten spaces and places of our urban and rural environments. The two artists realms merge in a wider scope. They both have elements associated with modern, Western style painting. In addition to this, on a visceral level, both artists have the ability to produce earnest representations of their chosen subject matter. By placing these two artists side by side it becomes clear how different yet how similar they are. The end result for both Sroka and Hartshorn is quantified by the genuinely positive response of their viewers, always eager to see and share in more of their work.
