Luxe Magazine listed the gallery in a list of Colorado destinations for “En Route” in their Spring 2014 issue:
Located in the historic LoDo neighborhood of Denver, David B. Smith Gallery has framed itself above the rest. Through progressive contemporary art, the gallery has made a name for itself among collectors on an international scale. Smith takes both established and emerging artists, such as Kim Keever (shown), to exhibit a curated and dynamic palette of talent. With an extensive publishing division and intelligent exhibits, the gallery serves as a cultural compass for the Colorado art scene.
5280 Home magazine featured the gallery in a feature called “How to Buy Art” in their Spring 2014 issue, which included advice from Denver-based art dealers and consultants.
Research galleries at industry sites such as the Denver Art Dealers Asociation, suggests David Smith, owner and director of the David B. Smith Gallery (pictured). Although the prices aren’t listed online, you’ll get a feel for which galleries’ aesthetics align with yours. Then start visiting your favorites. And don’t get intimidated. Smith says: “This is Denver, and pretty much every gallery here is totally accessible.”

Second Street Gallery, a nonprofit (501(c)3) artspace, is committed to offering Charlottesville and the central Virginia region leading-edge new art in perspective and context, and to fostering an active and open appreciation of this art by directly engaging the issues surrounding works by the best contemporary artists in the field.
SSG’s primary mission is to enliven Virginia through access to the best in contemporary art and artists and to inspire new ways of thinking, seeing, and doing. To this end, SSG promotes contemporary artists through the presentation of their work in a professional gallery and encourages an appreciation of contemporary art and culture by educating the public through exhibitions, lectures, workshops, classes, tours, and publications.
A selection of works by Laura Ball featured in her winter exhibition at the gallery, Minotaur, have been added to the collection of the Denver Art Museum. A gift of the Eleanor and Henry Hitchcock Charitable Foundation, Collection 1, and Zanesville Mandala, were formally added to the museum’s permanent collection.
The Denver Art Museum, founded in 1893, sits in Denver’s Golden Triangle neighborhood, with a building complex of over 350,000 square feet. The museum’s permanent collection comprises more than 70,000 works of art, divided between nine collections.
“David B. Smith represents some of the most engaging artists on the international scene, bringing their work to Denver at his LoDo headquarters. Smith is plugged in worldwide, but his local influence is serious; no other commercial gallery in Colorado offers a more comprehensive take on what gets shown and sold in the broad world of contemporary art. Smith’s show of Gregory Euclide’s feral dioramas was a highlight of last fall. Look for work by Paul Jacobsen and Ryan McLennan, as well.
What’s next: Cole Sternberg’s Kafka-inspired exhibit of installations, photography and painting is another don’t-miss show at Smith. Through March 23.”
