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.

Denver Post

Colorado’s best places to see art right now
Ray Mark Rinaldi

“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.”

Kim Keever’s magnificent work Sunset 44d, is on view at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, Missouri, for the museum’s celebration of the 20th anniversary of their Oppenheimer Collection. Sunset 44d is also included in the 340 page Oppenheimer Collection catalogue, for which Andrea S. Norris writes:

“Playing with our perceptions of the natural, Keever’s images first compel a struggle to understand their subjects, then inspire wonder at the artist’s creativity and technical achievement of faux verisimilitude, and finally suggest troubling aspects of humankind’s relationship with nature….”
