Gallery 1261 presents
October 2 - 31, 2015
DENVER, CO. – Gallery 1261 is proud to present Small Works, This exhibition ventures into the world of pieces big in ideas yet small in scale. Taking place ahead of its usual time, the Small Works exhibition is filled with works spanning multiple genres. From figurative, to landscape, to still life, to sculpture, the works in this exhibition pack a punch that is sure to delight.
Featuring double the amount of artists from last year, and nearly the whole stable of artists at 1261 and a few guests, this exhibition is engaging on many levels, seeking to showcase the rich and wide-ranging field of ideas that this group of artists is working in. This show exemplifies the diverse nature of the group of artists at 1261. It would be an incredibly difficult undertaking to attempt to neatly categorize them into groups as no two artists are alike and given that there are varying degrees of style amongst them in addition to the variety of work and genre, this exhibition stands out.
Some artists favor a more traditional mode of painting while others tend toward the contemporary. From Gregory Block’s hyper-real conch shells, to the beautiful portrait’s of Mia Bergeron, to the uniquely articulated landscape pieces of David Grossman, there is a little bit of everything on view. The sculptural works of Tony Hochstetler and Carolyn Barlock, cast in bronze and porcelain respectively, beautifully represent work from the 3-dimensional realm. There is a plethora of artwork to see and explore.
What ultimately ties all the work together in this exhibition is technical: size. Given the fact that no work exceeds the 12 x 16 parameters means that this exhibition is more open in terms of collectability. Anyone from the novice to the seasoned collector can pick up a piece. Coupled with the notion that there is such a wide variety of imagery it makes this exhibition one of the most anticipated and exciting of the year.
