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.”

A series of Kim Keever works are on display at the Metro State Denver Center for Visual Arts (CVA) for their exhibition, Semblance, celebrating the Month of Photography Denver.

From the CVA:
Semblance presents lens and time-based works that share the elements of performance, ritual and illusion. Artists Sama Alshaibi, Neil Chowdhury, Kim Keever, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, Laura Shill, and Janaina Tschäpe explore ambiguous boundaries between the real and the imagined. Whether at first cloaked and later revealed, or simply drawing us into an enigmatic narrative without clear linear progression, the photographs and video works navigate a reality not clearly identified.

Semblance runs through April 13, 2013; please visit the CVA website for more information.

Throughout Laura Ball’s exhibition Minotaur, her work has been featured by various publications, including the February issue of Harper’s Magazine, the December issue of American Art Collector Magazine and the January issue of BL!SSS Magazine.

In addition, the exhibition has received online coverage, including Juxtapoz Magazine, Hi Fructose Magazine, and Complex Magazine. Arrested Motion’s coverage features wonderful photos by Gavin McGlynn of the exhibition installed at the gallery.

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….”
