WHERE: Mike Wright Gallery 1412 Wazee St Denver, CO 80202“I share my studio with a Ghost Horse, and you have to keep the Ghost Horse happy,” says Brett Andrus. An indication of the narrative portrait artist's very active and bizarre imagination, this statement explains the unusual title for his upcoming show at Mike Wright Gallery, “Oats For The Ghost Horse.” Opening April 24th and continuing through June 13th, the show will include 10 new oil paintings and dozens of original sketches. Not for the faint of heart, this event represents Mike Wright Gallery's edgiest show to date.

WHERE: MCA Denver 1485 Delgany Denver, CO 80202This exhibition highlights recent work by Denver-based artist, Monique Crine. Working from her own photographs, Crine creates arresting paintings that explore different American archetypes. For this series, she focuses on the professional football player, creating both heroic and tragic representations of these (literally) larger-than-life figures. Her paintings are strikingly indebted to film—especially the classic, Hollywood spectacles of the mid-20th century. The drama of lighting, pose, and costume transform individual players into cinematic characters. This tension between stylized characters and real people parallels precisely how perceptions of celebrities frequently skirt the boundary between reality and fantasy. Monique Crine was born in Heidelberg, Germany. She lives and works in Denver. Her work has been presented at Goodwin Fine Art, Denver; Pirate: Contemporary Art, Denver; The Dairy Center, Boulder, CO; Hartell Gallery, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY; and Tjaden Gallery, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.

WHERE: MCA Denver 1485 Delgany St Denver, CO 80202Kim Dorland is a painter whose work explores themes that resonate far beyond his own personal experience. Taking on such unusual subjects as zombies, Sasquatch, and Jason of Friday the 13th, as well as providing new perspectives on more conventional subjects such as sunsets, landscapes, and domestic scenes, his dark (and at times darkly comic) paintings have a dense physical presence that transcend their subject matter. Kim Dorland was born in 1974 in Alberta, Canada. He lives and works in Toronto, Canada. His work has been the subject of recent solo presentations at Contemporary Calgary; Angell Gallery, Toronto; McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Kleinberg, Ontario; Mike Weiss Gallery, New York; and Gallery Bianca, Palermo, Italy. Kim Dorland received his M.F.A. from York University in Toronto, Ontario. Kim Dorland: Everyday Monsters will be presented in the David and Laura Merage Foundation Photography Gallery and the Luisa & Chris Law Gallery. The exhibition is curated by MCA Denver director and Chief Animator, Adam Lerner and organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. MCA Denver is grateful to Wayne F.J. Yakes, M.D. for his support of this exhibition.
