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. http://www.slidingdoorgallery.com/
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!

The Lab at Belmar
404 S. Upham Street, Lakewood
