March 9 - 26, 2017: Juried Exhibition: LOOK APP THIS! Exploring iPhoneography – Spark Gallery Celebrates Denver's Month of Photography, and Candace Shepard in the North Gallery
An evolution, perhaps a revolution in the art and craft of photography has happened to the art world. A camera in smart phones means a camera in almost everyone’s hand out in the big beautiful world. Show us what you’ve seen and what you have to say. Tell us about your Apps and filters. Denver celebrates Month of Photography biennially. There will be photography exhibits city-wide with workshops and seminars. Be part of this exciting month with Spark Gallery and “LOOK APP THIS!”
Juror Mark Sink's Statement: “The camera on your phone is an amazing tool. It has changed the world's social consciousness through social media, fine art and photojournalism. Everyone from the very young to very old now share the magic of photography in all its forms with a simple phone. Some of the greatest photographers and artists in the world use this tool for their work. The theme for this exhibition is open. I look forward to seeing what the artist in you has to offer. I look for work that speaks from your heart, happy or sad, artistic or photojournalistic.”
Candace Shepard: Remember
"Remember" is an exhibit of 189 select images from a year long iPhone project that began on May 3, 2016 - the same fabric manipulated and photographed, outside, every day. Read the 303 Magazine review of Remember
February 9 - March 5, 2017: April Noble, Barbara Baer, and Andy Libertone in the North Gallery
April Noble, Nature's Geometry
"This ceramic installation piece explores the fascinating geometry found in nature from the shape of leaves to minuscule details of pollen that we do not normally see. Rather than taking the natural shapes, April Noble has reduced them to their basic geometric shapes and enlarged them so that they can be enjoyed in this large-scale ceramic installation. Come explore this geometrically inspired garden, taking the time to contemplate its simple complexity."
Barbara Baer, Harmony
"This installation uses visual clues from two iconic twentieth-century paintings to examine the meaning of Harmony. Plastic, steel and fabric form a walk-in metaphor for an abstract idea. This staged environment considers Harmony as a quality often desired but in reality neither predictable nor tranquil."
