Trunk Show at The Fabric Lab 11/15

This week The Fabric Lab ( presents a fashion designer trunk show called "Prototype". A small studio it is, but the union of the neighboring cupcake shoppe The Shoppe ( , as well as the media sponsor FM Magazine (, will make it another hip-to-be-seen art party with live music, cupcakes, and of course, PBR. I don't have much info on the designers but the scene is always super fun. Actually, the last time I was on east Colfax for an art party the boys in blue had helicopters overhead. It must have been The Denver Roller Girls fashion show on the storefront sidewalks that they couldn't get enough of - way extreme, but a good story none the less. See you there!!

Damien Hirst Works at MCA/Denver

Three Damien Hirst pieces are currently being shown in The Large Works Gallery at the Musuem of Contemporary Art/Denver. (Sorry, this isn't one of the pieces being shown.) But expect to see a formaldehyded steer, a medine chest filled with pharmaceutical containers and a beautiful butterfly painting. As a single presentation it isn't the most striking show, but Damien Hirst's work should be seen by anyone who has even a slight interest in contemprary art - right now he IS contemporary art.
The opening night party was super fun; with funky cool people and a great pop/electro-punk band from Denver. Definitely check out the exhibit on one of the Friday late night evenings - open till 10pm, get a cocktail on the roof too.

Street Works & Oriental Photography at The Lab 9/24

Wow....with marketing illustrations like this from one of the most sophisticated gallery/museums in Denver, I have to say that The Lab continues to humor and impress me. Btw Lab, are you "at the trailing edge" because you are in Lakewood?

The Lab at Belmar hosts its new exhibition opening on September 24th, In Plain Sight: Street Works & Performances, and Orientalist Photography: Japan in the Baumatsu-Meiji Period, 1868-1912. The exhibition host two gallery shows, a performace on opening night and a curator's talk the following evening. In Plain Sight proposes to be the full-examination of the important late 1960s phenomenon of street works and performances - dedicated years where a few NYC writers took their poetry readings off stage and created an experiential dynamic environment for poets, artists and dancers. Their point was to show that artists and poets were not to be constrained by the assumption that art should be contained and perhaps approachable. John Perreault will recreate a 1971 performance entitled, Critical Mass. Sounds totally interesting and nostalgic, doesn't it? (Perraeault was the art critic for The Village Voice from 1966 to 1974.)

Orientalist Photography is a collection of 19th century photographs using a simple and early Collodian process. The resulting images are warm and rich in detail of tourist photos from early 20th century Japan. Curator, Mark Sink's great grandfather originally collected the pieces as a New York society photographer.

Opening Reception
Wednesday, September 24th, 6-8pm (Members 5-6pm)
Performance by John Perreault, 7:30pm

"Tattoo Detour" at Robischon Gallery 7/18

Robischon always presents a wonderfully sophisticated art show. It feels weirdly educational as well as brings a sharp representation of local and global contemporary art. Balas' work is also being shown at mca/denver and an opening reception will be held in the artist's honor on the 18th as well. I guess it's a Robischon/MCA night for us. Sounds cool....especially if you're going to the rooftop cafe!

Communikey/MATMOS at the Boulder Theater - 7/15

Originally my blog was Boulder/Denver pARTies until I moved to Denver full-time and decided that my time was better spent going to Denver-based events. Fortunately, Communikey (Boulder) makes it here today because the things that they are doing in the progressive music/art community feel like they should be in the "big city". Communikey has hosted a few events since their big debut of the electronic arts festival this past April, (of which I had the pleasure of being a venue sponsor when I was the events director at BMoCA) but this one seems like another great festival-like contributer to the somewhat predictable Boulder music scene.
The duo of Matmos' cosmic pop, synthesized music will perform at The Boulder Theater on Tuesday, July 15th accompanied by the interactive, public, digital art installation phonografitti. Matmos, who has toured with Bjork, usually presents its audience with something like "contact microphones brushing human hair, the pages of a Bible turning, rock salt being crunched underfoot, aspirin tablets being thrown at a drum kit from the other side of a room, amplified crayfish nerve tissue and — oh yes — the very real sound of human fat being sucked through tubes during liposuction surgery." - Sound on Sound Magazine
Supposedly works from their new album, Supreme Balloon, will bring mostly tempered synthesizer tracks.
This show should bring you unique entertainment as well as the opportunity to meet and interact with some of the hippest people that live in the Boulder area. This all ages show is $15 and tickets can be purchsed at the door. I'd love for it to sell out but I don't believe that it will.

July Andenken Show 7/3

It may just be my undying love for Andy Warhol's work but I love anything that has to do with soup cans and art, (especially soupcanart).

Check out Andenken again this Thursday and view the work of Jef Kopp (above), Sandi Calistro, and Ian K. Millard. Other artists showing include; Kill Pixie (Australia), Fafi, Koralie, Alexone and Amandine Urruty (France). As always they'll have drinks, a Dj and a fire sculpture.

VIS-A-VISAGE @ Object + Thought 6/27

I have really come to like the shows and the vibe that Object + Thought has been putting out this year in the RINO District of downtown Denver. The location of the space is little out of the way for the regual art hoppers, but I like that. It gives them more room to space themselves from the hecticness of the typical art event scene of the city.
Friday, June 27th at 6pm, O+T will present Vis-A-Visage an intern-curated group show (nice!) that will not only feature some of our best local talent but some international flavor as well from Germany and Canada. Plus, we have the return of local fav Jenny Morgan back from NYC. I've heard they have special snacks for us this time as well as more beautiful botanical scultures from the impressive Vain and Babylon. I'm excited for this show. You are bound to see lots of interesting Denver creatives there too.

Lemonade On Fire @ Sliding Door Gallery - 6/6

There is lots to see of our favorite Denver artists this June First Friday, but don't forget to go to Sliding Door Gallery to see the lasted works by Tony Zellaha and Nathan Abels. Tony's work (pictured) gives a glimpse into simple lands governed by shape, color and space giving way to an underlying sense of the mystery. Nathan's paintings are brooding and atmospheric and describe a sense of uncertainty primarily through landscape-based imagery.
Sliding Door's opening is 6 to 10pm at 554 Sante Fe Drive.
Also on June 6th in Denver:
"Molten" @ Space Gallery, 765 Santa Fe Drive
Exhibiting artists: Trevor Alyn, Alicia Bailey, Andrew Chapman, Rafa Jenn, Jeff Navarro, Regan Rosburg, Ryan Rosburg, Heather Seeley, Katie Taft, Jason Tielke, Rutherford Witthus
"Merge" @ Andenken Gallery, 2990 Larimer Street
Exhibiting artists: Amanda Marie, Scott Lefavor, Vincent Comparetto
(My suggestion for the evening is Andenken, Sliding Door and then Space, in that order.)

New Exhibition Opening at The Lab 5/22

Check out the new exhibit at The Lab featuring the unique pairing of recent contemporary paintings with early silent nonfiction films. Bedroom Paintings refers to painting that aspires to immediate pleasurable effects. Silent Films shows films from a historic period but emphasizes the aesthetic power of the films versus its film history significance. The Lab will ask its viewers to reflect on the extent to which history matters when looking at images......yes, you need to see this in person. The Lab offers a beautiful space and they always puts on a qwerky yet sophisticated event. (Plus the people are pretty cool too.) Don't miss an opening at The Lab!

I've never been to a show on this tour, but I love the girl on the flyer and I love Japanse pop culture and music. Japan Nite US Tour 2008 looks like quite a lineup with the following acts that I hope/assume are all hailing from JAPAN:

After having the chance to go through the band's websites and myspace pages, this is definitely better that Japanese pop culture. There is a whole lot of punk, garage and rock music to hear.

Gimme Gimme Pillow French Toast at SNOOZE 2/9

Oh my gosh, I am so hungry looking at I guess that means if you're hungry too we'll see you at SNOOZE on Larimer Street in Denver this Saturday to try out the "Honey Toasto" French toast dish created by the Belmar shop Gimme Gimme Pillow Toast and the chefs at SNOOZE.

Gimme Gimme Pillow Toast is a cool little Japanafile shop in Lakewood (445 S. Saulsbury Street at the Belmar Shopping Center) that imports Japanese clothes, paraphenalia, gadgets and collectibles. They approached the chefs at SNOOZE to come up with this lovely dish (pictured) of "a scrumptous cross between bread pudding and french toast, made with cinnamon challah bread, embedded with baked apple bits, topped with cinnamon whipped cream and drizzled with carmel sauce!" -Gimme Gimme

The event will give people the opportunity to sample this wonderful morsel as well as sample some other Asian snacks and get a listen to some cool Japanese pop and rock videos and music. There will be a cash bar, hopefully providing sugarless cocktails, and some limited edition t-shirts available that I'm sure will be sweetly fun. Kudos for coming up with a unique and yummy event guys!

Barack Obama In Denver at DU 1/30

I went to hear Barack Obama speak at the University of Denver this morning and I have to say after hearing him rally the Denver community around his campaign to become the next president of the United States..I believe that he can do it. I think that for anyone who has yet to hear him speak, you need to do it now!

You may have heard that everyone in the Democratic party is supporting the same issues with slightly different methods, but Barack may be the only one that can get you to listen to him without cringing, then believe him, and THEN actually want to become a better person for your neighbors, yourself, and yes, even your country. Plus, a cute little appearance by the nervous Denver Bronco Rod Smith and a heart-warming introductory speech by the lovely Caroline Kennedy, this was a really moving and motivating community event. So, SO glad that my office crew and I skipped work together to go even if 20,000 people showed up for 9,000 seats!

Please check out the link on the Denver Post today just minutes after the rally.

FINAL ART EVENT EVER! at Capsule Gallery 1/4

A friend of mine from Boulder and I are heading to Denver tonight, after a quick stop at The Kitchen Upstairs for tasting hour (, to the last night and hopefully unique and exciting art event at Capsule Gallery, 554 Santa Fe Drive at 7pm.

"Capsule Gallery specializes in showing the cutting edge work of emerging contemporary artists. We also run a monthly art festival, Art-O-Mart, have an on-site community screen printing shop, affordable artist's studios, have the occassional band play, and run professional development classes and seminars for artists. All that, and we throw a kick-ass party, too. We exist to support independent culture for independent people!" -Capsule
