Eyes On Anthony McCall - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

This installment of Eyes On will feature London-born, New York-based artist Anthony McCall. Landscape for Fire presents five performers dressed in white set fire to pots of gasoline laid in a vast grid across an airfield in North Weald, England. The second in a larger suite of seven fire performances staged between 1972 and 1974, Landscape for Fire is Anthony McCall’s primary record of the series. Shifting configurations of light and dark unfold across a thirty-six-point grid, as the field of grass becomes a meadow of light.


Shantell Martin: Words and Lines - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

Shantell Martin: Words and Lines is an interactive multimedia installation featuring the work of London-born, New York-based contemporary artist Shantell Martin. The exhibition features Martin’s signature black and white drawings that explore intersectionality, identity, and play. It includes an interactive wall with triangular boxes that rotate, an animated video projection, and a third section focused solely on Martin’s renowned drawings. Extensions of this installation will be visible throughout the museum, adding an element of surprise and whimsy to every visit to the DAM.


The Light Show - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

The Light Show at the Denver Art Museum explores physical and symbolic representations of light in art through a thought-provoking narrative. The exhibition features about 250 objects drawn from the DAM’s nine curatorial departments. The Light Show focuses on the quest by humanity and artists to understand physical light in the natural world as well as metaphorical, spiritual, and divine representations of light.

The exhibition presents a chronological selection of works ranging from the 1400s through the late 1800s, telling the story of Britain’s rich cultural history. The exhibition invites visitors to immerse themselves in the places, personalities, and events that shaped a nation over the course of five centuries.

Sparking Conversation for Contemporary Art Exploring Traditional Themes - The Carnegie Center for Creativity, 200 Mathews Street, Fort Collins, CO 80524

The Center For Fine Art Photography
(970) 224-1010

The Center is thrilled to present three exhibitions at the Carnegie Center for Creativity.  What these three exhibitions have in common is a contemporary take of traditional themes, Black and White, Abstract, and motherhood. Laura J. Bennett’s solo exhibition, Umbilicus, is a visual depiction of her life as both an artist and the mother of nine. She sculpts her own orbs from various materials and prints her own canvas backdrops. The backdrops are combined with collectibles and Bennett calls these sets, Mother Worlds.  Artists from around the country will be attending the reception and giving short artist talks beginning at 6:30 pm. Also in attendance will be the curator of the Black and White exhibition, Catherine Couturier of the Catherine Couturier gallery in Houston. Join us in celebrating art, artists, and the creative community.  Exhibition Dates | November 14 – December 15, 2018 Public + Artists’ Reception | December 7, 2018  Admission is always Free!
