“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.

David B. Smith Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition, Gregory Euclide: Nature Out There, opening at the Nevada Museum of Art on March 24 and running through September 2, 2012. The exhibition features a comprehensive set of six works which illustrate critical aspects of Euclide’s stunning oeuvre, and the museum will also introduce Euclide’s largest and most ambitious self-contained work to date, the spectacular, What kept you at bay allowed me to feel this way. From Euclide’s provocation regarding art historical notions of landscape and materiality to his raising topics of conservation and modernity, these works represent the dynamic visual breadth of the artist’s practice while revealing the topical currents that run throughout.
What kept you at bay allowed me to feel this way and selected works from Gregory Euclide: Nature Out There are available for acquisition. Please contact David B. Smith Gallery with any inquiries.
From the Nevada Museum of Art:
Reno, Nevada – Artist Gregory Euclide’s intricately crafted sculptural works, on view at the Nevada Museum of Art March 24 through September 2, 2012, explore the tension between idealized, picturesque views of landscapes and actual experiences of being in nature. Using traditional methods of landscape painting combined with natural materials and found objects, Euclide constructs three dimensional encapsulated worlds where pristine notions of landscape meet the reality of our current environment.
Gregory Euclide is an artist and teacher living in the Minnesota River Valley. He received his MFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Euclide was awarded two Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grants through the National Endowment for the Arts, and a Jerome Foundation Residency through the Blacklock Nature Sanctuary. This November, Euclide was a recipient of the 2011-12 Jerome Foundation Fellowships for Emerging Artists.
Euclide’s work was featured in Badlands: New Horizons in Landscape at MASS MoCA (March 2008-April 2009) and was recently included in the exhibition Otherworldly at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. His work is also featured on album covers of the 2012 Grammy award-winning musical group Bon Iver. Euclide’s work is currently on view in the exhibition Small Worlds at the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio.
