Rivers Alive, Work by Wopo Holup, Opens at PSS September 5th

Apple Valley Road, 2014, 7’ x 3’, Japanese leaf, acrylic and pencil on DenrilThe Pattern Shop Studio will open the fall season with an exhibition entitled Rivers Alive, featuring work by New York and Colorado based artist Wopo Holup.  Holup’s drawings are about nature's flow -- its branching and dividing -- and the disbursements of energy. Rivers, traffic patterns, and cultural hierarchies are all forms of this flow.  The metal leafs Holup uses on the drawings consist of precious metals such as silver and gold to acknowledge treasured sites such as the Nile, the Mississippi, and the legendary Sea of Galilee.  The centerpiece of the exhibition will be new work that depicts the 2013 flooding along the Colorado Front Range.

The exhibit will open with a reception on Friday, September 5th, 2014, from 6 to 9PM and remain on display until October 31st 2014.  Additional receptions will be held on Friday, October 3rd and Friday  October 31st, from 6 to 9PM  The Pattern Shop Studio is open Thursdays and Saturdays, 12-5PM and anytime by appointment.

Holup's bronze and iron work can be found at the Philadelphia Zoo, Historic Battery Park in Manhattan, and the Tampa International Airport, among many others.

Unfinished, An Art Students League of Denver Invitational Exhibition

 

Homare Ikeda, Toki #17, Acrylic & Oil on Canvas, 26 x 22 inchesJoin us as the Pattern Shop Studio plays host to the Faculty and Students of the Art Students League of Denver. The result is an interesting mix of art, in subject matter, type and type of media. Entitled "Unfinished" the invitational presents artists with the challenge to show work in process. Unfinished work can offer insight into an artist's creative process and having such work on display can lead to many questions, such as “What does it mean for a work of art to be finished?” and “Why is it considered unfinished?”

"Unfinished"  opens June 20 with an Artists' Reception from 6 to 9 PM and will be up until August 18.  Viewing hours will be Thursdays from 12 to 5 PM and by appointment.

The ASLD will host a VIP reception on Thursday, July 24, 6-8PM.
