Exhibitions > Repeat Offenders

Repeat Offenders: New and Old Paintings by Sharon Brown, combines recent work from Sharon’s long-running series called Creators—large black and white oil paintings of artists-- with older work from her Damage series--brightly colored portraits of murderers, thieves and other felons. By combining these bodies of work, Repeat Offenders explores the purpose and potential of portraiture, raising questions about its history and the subjects that artists tend to paint or ignore. Her black and white portraits are based on colored photos she has taken of the subjects; her strikingly colored portraits are based on small black and white images of wanted or convicted criminals. The combination suggests that artists offend sensibilities in their ways, criminals in theirs.

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 open for groups and individuals by appointment any time. Please call 303-297-9831 for more information or to schedule a viewing.
