Abend Gallery Presents On the Periphery Benjamin Bjorklund – Lindsey Kustusch - Felicia Forte September 2 – October 1, 2016 Opening Reception: Friday, September 2, 6-9 pm. DENVER, CO., This fall Abend Gallery is proud to present On the Periphery, an exhibition of work from three distinctly unique, engaging artists whose work is so stylistically significant, it deserves a show of its own. In viewing the works of Benjamin Björklund, Lindsey Kustusch, and Felicia Forte all together, one gets a sense of each artists’ particular take on their environments and the people, animals, and objects that populate them. At a glance it becomes clear how wholly original each of these artists’ style and bodies of work are. The exhibition opens on September 2, with the reception from 6-9 pm. In order to really flesh out the exhibition it’s best to describe it through each of the artists separately. Based in Uppsala, Sweden, Benjamin Björklund is an artist whose work largely features people and animals depicted with deep, psychological overtones. Stylistically, Björklund often renders his subjects without fully realized facial features, highlighting only the most important elements. By doing so the artist is able to create incredibly gripping and emotive portraits, exemplified by works such as “Tiny Spark” and “Medelhavet III”. His use of light and color attests to his incredible skill, further highlighting his talent. One can glean his deep connection with the people and creatures that inhabit his work. Lindsey Kustusch’s work often features her environment; the architecture that makes up her surroundings is chronicled in her paintings. Kustusch’s ability to execute incredibly realistic depictions of each individual place is only rivaled by her ability to make each piece exude a true sense of those gritty, lived-in parts of the Bay area. In works like “Open Late” and “Somewhere Near Home”, the viewer is able to observe these qualities and delve into the minute details that, when added together, make the works come alive. Detroit-based artist Felicia Forte has an incredible ability to make even the most mundane of subjects truly astounding. Her body of work for this exhibition will feature numerous paintings by the artist that provide a narrative which speaks to the objects, places, and people that characterize Forte’s world. When viewed together the paintings act almost autobiographically, showing the viewer a glimpse into her daily life. The vivid color choices paired with Forte’s unique approach and sense of her subject matter make these paintings an incredibly interesting and dense body of work to sift through. Each of these three artists’ works reflect the aspects of their respective worlds that speak to them the most. What makes them unique as individual artists is also what connects them: Björklund, Kustusch, and Forte all imbue their work with true heart and passion.

A playground altercation between eleven-year old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principals in tatters.
