DENVER—Space Gallery is excited to announce a show that examines the relationship between shape, space, and how we connect with them—Patterns: Organic/Geometric, opening Friday, May 1 at Denver’s Space Gallery.
“The desire to create order in our lives is innate in all of us,” says Space gallerist Michael Burnett. “We look for patterns naturally. We seek to control, to find the edges. It’s how we make sense of things. This show takes us to a different understanding of what’s built into each of us.”
Far from being a series of shapes that come together in linear ways, the show’s wide ranging visual cadences reach past viewers’ expectations and ask them to engage differently.
“Patterns are connections between things that show us boundaries. Yet, they can also free us from them,” artist Karen Freedman reflected. “This show will surprise people. What a lot of folks think patterns are, they won’t necessarily be.”
Beyond its unique conversations of form and color, of light and shadow, the show introduces an expanded view to Space Gallery’s commitment to the abstract arts: Patterns brings together artists from across the country, many of whom will be seen in Denver for the first time.
“Not only is the art audience growing here,” Burnett observed, “but this city is also becoming a magnet for artists of national renown. Coast to coast, the art community is hearing what’s happening here and wants to be part of the excitement. This show celebrates Denver’s role on that national stage.”
Patterns includes painters, sculptors and multimedia artists from across the country, including: Jane Gutheridge, Ruth Hiller, Nouman Gaafar, Tyler Aiello (CO); Karen Freedman (PA), Joanne Mattera (New York City), Amber George (CA), Lynda Ray (VA), and Corey Postiglione (IL).
“In many ways, the Patterns show is going to be different from anything we’ve done,” Burnett concluded. “It’s going to be a lively, colorful, challenging experience that people will experience in dozens of unexpected ways. I can’t wait to see the reaction.”
Space Gallery, at 400 Santa Fe Drive, has in a very short time become the southern anchor for the lively Santa Fe Arts District, a purpose-built a testament to Denver’s thriving art scene and the kaleidoscopic ideas that live there.
