Sharon Brown's "Repeat Offenders" June 3rd--August 5th, 2016

Resident artist Sharon Brown is combining new work from her "Creators" series with older work from her "Damage" series to create a thought provoking exhibit for the summer entitled "Repeat Offenders."  "Creators" features large black and white oil portraits of Denver artists and creatives. "Damage" features colorful portraits of criminals, all of whom have both inflicted damage upon others and have themselves been damaged at some point in their lives.  By combining these bodies of work, Repeat Offenders explores the purpose and potential of portraiture, raising questions about its social class history, the faces that artists tend to paint or ignore,  the nature of offensiveness, and much more. 

The show opens on First Friday, June 3rd from 6 to 9 pm; continues on First Friday, July 1st; and closes on First Friday, August 5th. As always, the gallery will be open for special RiNo Art District events and, as usual, open any time by appointment.  Please call 303-297-9831 for more information or to schedule a viewing.
