Poster Show: Supporting Feed Denver & Feed Denver In Power Week

Posters by dozens of artists supporting Feed Denver & In Power Week (March 24-31, 2012)

*** Art Auction proceeds go to Feed Denver***

February 17th Colorado acts not on the basis of political or religious belief.
We act not on the dividing lines of race, class or neighborhood boundaries.
We come together to hold the space around our most fundamental right to consume high quality, low waste food.
In order to have food, we need farmers and ranchers. In order to have farmers and ranchers we need to educate.
The evolution of climate shifts, economic challenges and a society wrought with cancer from chemically and genetically altered foods; are all directly correlated to the most basic need of every person in this state, consuming safe, sustainably grown FOOD.

Join the collaboration of Colorado's Art Community at Hinterland Feb 17.
Original, poster and printed works available for auction benefit Feed Denver.

Same Ship, Different Day (Opening Reception)

Artist-in Residence: Maggie Lawless

Exhibition Dates: February 16th through February 25th

Attempting to provide a glimmer of societal self-reflection for the viewer, Maggie Lawless uses text and imagery from the Internet to attempt to capture the structures that promote and maintain entrapment, or domination and dependence, in modern society. Using formal techniques of collage, drawing, and painting, Lawless incorporates art historical references with details that intimately engage the viewer, while the symbolism and artistic techniques attract attention from a distance. Social, economic injustice and the structures that maintain these conditions are themes that occur throughout the work.

Adam Reker 'Of Gods and Monsters'

In his first solo with Indy Ink, Adam crafts viscous spacescapes with inks, acrylic and an experimental process involving layers of vellum. On top of these he adds crisp line work of wolves, skulls, modified marlins and more.

For more of Adam's work.

Adam Reker was born in the Pacific Northwest but has called Denver home for most of his life. His work ranges from playful to complex conveying themes of fear, conflict and the struggle between nature, man and technology. Adam is influenced by street art, collage, nature paintings, and folk art - blending them into a mashup of colorful pop images. Adam has shown at The Hibbleton Gallery in CA, The APW Gallery in NY and several Denver galleries including The Other Side Arts, Plastic Chapel, Neopolitan, Icelantic, IndyInk, Illiterate, and Meadowlark.

Denver Loves Audrey McNamara
Paintings by Audrey McNamara

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE MACSPA & ART PIMP PRODUCTIONS presents Paintings by Audrey McNamara. February 2nd through 26th 2012 at The MacSpa 1738 Wynkoop, Suite 103 Denver, CO 80202.
Contact: Eric Matelski at ArtPimpInfo@mac.com 303-898-4350

I first met Audrey about six years ago. I would often see her promoting her upcoming art shows with handmade flyers. I enjoyed the art of her handmade flyers so much, that I had to see her artwork. Since then I have curated a handful of shows with Audrey’s work. I have also painted live with Audrey at concerts and other events, and even collaborated on a small series of work.
A few years back Audrey left Denver to explore other art scenes, her own art, and explore herself. After about a year in L.A. Audrey came back as a featured artist for my First Monday Art Talk at Dazzle. At that time Audrey also released a memoir of her acounts as a working artist in L.A..
Since then Audrey has bounced all around the United States, Portland, New York, and back to L.A.. Every time Audrey passes back through town to do a show, I notice Denver loves Audrey McNamara and her art.

Here is your chance to see for yourself Audrey’s illustrative imagination on display until February 26th at The MacSpa.

Public Reception will be held Thursday, February 2nd, 6-9pm.
