Plinth Gallery
Owner / Curator:  Jonathan Kaplan
3520 Brighton Blvd
Denver, Colorado 80216    map

Hours:     Thursday -Saturday, 12pm-5pm, and other times by appointment


Plinth Gallery is a unique venue in Colorado exhibiting a well curated collection of contemporary ceramic art, representing both national as well as international ceramic artists. Five solo exhibitions of invited artists are presented each year. In architecture, a plinth is the base or platform upon which a column, pedestal, statue, monument or structure rests. In Gottfried Semper's "The Four Elements of Architecture" (1851) one element, the plinth, exists to negotiate between a structure and the ground. Plinth Gallery conceptualizes that very definition of a platform or base referencing one of the essential concepts in ceramic work, “centering” on a potter's wheel. Those artists selected for exhibitions at Plinth Gallery successfully exploit that idea of the "negotiation between structure and ground" by the artful manipulation of material organized in both traditional and abstract ways. While the idea of the vessel can be defined by containment, it is precisely it's content that gives the work meaning and inviting of inquiry or dialog.

Phone:      720-596-4243


Hours: Tues-Saturday 11am - 5pm

Tansey Contemporary exhibits unique, high quality works across a variety of media including contemporary glass, ceramics, fiber, sculpture and mixed media. Our program is focused at the intersection between fine craft, contemporary art, and design. From a curatorial perspective, we place equal emphasis on the “how” and the “why" - taking into consideration both process and context. While purpose and meaning is fundamental to the value of art to humanity, quality in execution, we believe, is fundamental to the value of craft within the world of the visual arts. For this reason we exclusively exhibit works by artists who display a level of mastery in their chosen medium.
