I’m so excited for this show. I mean this is the first show we will be kicking off at “Love Gallery”. Which is my new spot. So the excitement of having my own gallery and starting a new business is almost overwhelming on its own. But the best part of this, is the amazing art that is going to be hanging on the walls from some of my favorite artists and friends. Really topping the chart though is having Brian’s stuff up. He is hands down one of the nicest and most humble men I know. So a lot of the beautiful pieces that he produces and sells in his hometown of Steamboat awe me but do not surprise me. Its the other work that catches you off guard. The pieces that seep out of his guts and his dreams maybe nightmares. They explore religion, politics, humanity and self. All of this seems to be deconstructed in Brian’s work. Maybe in search of a better understanding of this awkward state of being we call life. Or maybe its all just a release for him. Ill let you form your own opinion. Here is a small excerpt of past works from Brian and some works from his Denver debut at the gallery May 31st-June 1st.


To see these and more of Brians work Join us for the Opening on May 31st 6-9pm or June 1st 3-10pm  at “Love Gallery” Denver’s newest art gallery showing contemporary, Post pop, Pop pluralist, Low brow,  New Brow…….

Bruce Conners and Gaurded exhibits at The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (MCA Denver)Just wanted to let people know its the last weekend to check out the MCA for a buck!

Thats right for $1 you can go check out

Bruce Conner’s exhibit “Bruce Conner And The Primal Scene Of Punk Rock” which include a collection of photos, art, quotes and writing from Bruce and also some more recent artists (musicians, painters, writers, etc) who were profoundly influenced by early punk.

Type A “guarded” a very interesting installation piece that can easily catch you off guard

“More American Photographs” a collection of photos that seem to capture the essence of the working class,  impoverished and ground floor entrepreneurs.

and don’t forget to check out the cafe and pigeons “Thinking about Flying” up on the top floor.

all of this is definitely worth the everyday admissions price of $10 but for $1 its something that shouldn’t be missed. For more info on the exhibits  check out  http://www.mcadenver.org

Woahhh…. Its been a while.

Well due to life just trucking along. I got a bit side tracked from updating this blog. Shame on me. Thanks to a move to Denver and the upcoming opening of Love Gallery. I plan on being a lot more active here. There are just so many great things and new to me things going on around us at our new spot. So stay tuned and I promise not to be absent for so long.

Oh and just a tidbit about the new spot.

Bee and I decided it was time to make a move from our tiny apt on college ave in Boulder. At first we were just looking for a place with a studio or work space for my art and for her jewelry. After a long search and a bit of luck we thought we had found the perfect location.  A small apt above a great big workshop that included a beautiful little space for a gallery.

Needless to say we were in love with the space and the idea of having our own gallery. I was instantly envisioning Signage and track lights. A darkroom and a screen printing studio alongside my vinyl and paint area. Bee was thinking about getting all of her tools here from Cali and setting up alongside of me. The space was going to need a bit of work but none of it mattered. Over the course of about 2 weeks I negotiated my first commercial lease and started lining up all the materials we would need to get the space ready. We were all ready to sign the lease.  The timing was perfect for us to move out of the old spot and into the new. Then the dream shattering nerve racking call came in.. The HOA had decided that they were no longer going to allow the units to be live/work. Crushed and nearly homeless. We had less than a week to find a spot. At this point we were looking for anything. I lined up three spots to look at in Denver. One of which is a spot I had been interested in but had not gotten a call back the first 2 times I called on it. The first 2 spots were ok. One needed a bit of work and one was a bit pricey. The last was a bit further south then I thought we wanted to be but we were in a pinch. It was also the one I had called on a couple time with no response. So we arrived at 570 Inca St. The building was beautiful and modern. We met the landlord and he took us inside. The downstairs was all ready set to go as a gallery and the upstairs was clean new and complete with new appliances.  After leaving within minutes Bee and I knew this was the spot. I was back down in the morning signing a lease.  Its funny how things work out. Now that were in. I couldn’t imagine being in any of the other spaces. We love the location, the space, our neighbors and having the opportunity to not only show our own work but also that of some of the amazing artists we have come to know.

I am looking forward to the next few months and our current line up. Including Brian Leach, Tom Bond, and Nathan Reese.

Hope too see you at Love Gallery sometime soon.
