“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.”
David B. Smith Gallery was thrilled to participate in the PULSE Contemporary Art Fair in Miami, Florida this past week. The gallery featured works by Laura Ball, Christina Empedocles, Gregory Euclide, Paul Jacobsen, Hong Seon Jang, Kris Lewis, and Michael Theodore. A few works are still available and a selection of exhibited works can be viewed on our PULSE Miami exhibition page. Please contact the gallery to inquire about availability.
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….”

“With its historic storefront on LoDo’s busy Wazee Street, the David B. Smith Gallery has a more prominent location than most of Denver’s upscale dealers. Yet it remains something of a secret pleasure within the city’s art scene…But its walls are covered with some of the most exciting work you’ll see around here. Especially right now….”
