Gabe Richesson’s Exhibition at Black Book Gallery in Denver is Set to Become a Huge Draw for Art Lovers and Denver Broncos Fans from May 20th to June 10th, 2017
Black Book Gallery, a Denver based contemporary art gallery, is thrilled to announce its upcoming exhibition featuring Gabe Richesson, entitled “Aptitude for Destruction.” The exhibit, featuring portraits of six NFL players, officially launches with a free opening reception on the evening of Saturday, May 20th. Open to the public, the launch will take place at 304 Elati Street, Denver, CO 80223 from 7 to 10 pm with the artist in attendance. The exhibition will run until Saturday, June 10th.
Gabe Richesson’s paintings feature Denver Broncos players: T.J. Ward (SS), Brandon McManus (K), Kyle Peko (NT), Jordan Taylor (WR), Max Garcia (G) and Dekoda Watson (LB – Now with S.F. 49ers). ‘Aptitude For Destruction’ reveals the unique and varying mindsets of professional football players and what drives them to strive for greatness. Working closely with the players involved allowed Gabe to gain insight into their lives beyond their on-field persona.
“Learning about each player’s unique path and motivations outside of football inspired me to tell their stories. The life of a professional athlete is complicated and very layered beyond the public view, it’s my hope these paintings reflect their mindsets.”
Additionally, 5 fine art canvas prints will be offered to the public via a silent auction with all proceeds benefiting Denver Broncos Charities. The Denver Broncos are committed to improving lives in the community. Please visit http://www.denverbroncos.com/community/ for additional information on programming and community partnerships. Bidding will be available in-person and by phone/email.
