Between Memory and Pending: Narrative Sculpture of Thomas Orr
. The artist served in Vietnam with the 11th light infantry brigade as a combat infantry platoon leader and his wartime experiences are influential in his work. Orr's ceramic works are highly personal sculptures. He once referred to them as "small scale stage sets." These settings evolved over time in both scale and in content to become environments, depicting activities that may have taken place in the past, but have a "potential of a future activity."
Through October 27

Saturday, October 6

Abend Gallery

Arrangements, the US debut solo exhibition for UK-based artist Jon Doran, opening October 6th in our project space. Jon's work is centered on taking classical subjects of still life, portraiture and figures in landscape and rearticulating them through a digitally influenced and fragmented approach to painting.
Through October 27

Thursday, October 11
Tansey Contemporary

Opening reception,  5 - 7 pm
Quattrocento & La Strada with 15 new works by Danish artist Gugger Petter. These portraits are Petter’s interest, first sparked in the 1970s when she lived in Italy as a young artist, with Renaissance art, Byzantine icons, and the early Christian church. While inspired by art history, Petter creates portraits from her imagination. She says these fictional portraits “could be anybody.” She sees the anonymity of the works as essential in creating both familiarity and distance between the subject and the viewer. View the exhibit
Through November 18

Friday, October 12
David B. Smith Gallery

Opening Reception, 6 - 8 pm
The Explorers, Russell’s latest body of work, continues his conversation challenging the conventions and history of photography. Russell’s process-intensive works begin with photographing scenes from nature that he intentionally obscures with sheer fabrics, effectively destroying what would otherwise serve as a documentative image. Into these hazy, abstracted fields Russell laboriously scratches intricate designs into the emulsion of the printed image, adding paint to some areas. The result is multilayered, dreamlike works that come in and out of focus as the eye negotiates the underlying image and textural patterning of meticulously etched designs
Through November 10

Visions West Contemporary

Opening Reception, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Tracy Stuckey
Nocturnes, is largely influenced by 19th century artist Frederic Remington’s night paintings. Made in the last decade of Remington’s life, these paintings reflect the artists growing disillusionment with the changing landscape of the American West. Stuckey’s works reflect not only the false romanticism of the American West but also the complete fabrication of it. Full essay by Zoe Larkins, Assistant Curator, MCA Denver available at www.visionswestcontemporary.com 
Through November 24

Michael Warren Contemporary
Artist's reception, 6-8pm
The Water Within, new works by Etsuko Ichikawa, showcasing a recent body of glass works. She has been recreating ancient Jōmon vessels and figurines, casting them with uranium glass. Her tangential series of blown uranium glass orbs and her new series of pyrographs with watercolor round out the exhibition. We find this series to be very compelling - she was so emotionally affected by the nuclear disaster at Fukushima and subsequently her examination of the nuclear clean-up at the Hanford site that she is now exploring cultural legacy as told through the Jōmon pottery which she is recreates using uranium glass.
Through December 1
