Mile High Mixtape Volume 1
Sally Centigrade presents a group show featuring all Denver based artist creating “gig” posters inspired by all Colorado based bands and musicians. In collaboration with Alicia “Bruce” Trujillo, the gallery selected 20 local artists and paired them with a Colorado band based on aesthetic and sound. Most of the pairings have never met before, and connections in the Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, and Ft. Collins areas.
While the look of the show will be uniform in that all images will be the same size and promote the show (in lieu of an actual “gig,”), the show explores the many different styles and talents that the Denver art scene has to offer. . As such, the genres represented by the local bands is varied as well, with rock, hip-hop, funk and country all included, creating a truly diverse mix, something any great mixtape has - this one just happens to be local.
Denver artists that may be recognizable include Kaitlin Ziesmer, Elena Gunderson and Kristen Easthope among others, with local favorites like Wheelchair Sports Camp, Colfax Speed Queen and The Velveteers as subjects. This opportunity also lent itself to dig deep into both scenes, finding up-and-coming artists and newer bands from across the Front Range just making their mark. While the show already has an interesting hook to it, it really has become a great way to make connections between artists in their different mediums and bring the arts scene just a little more closer.
Lure: Happy D Solo Show
Happy was on hand to greet fans and friends as we unveiled a new series of mermaid inspired paintings and drawings, and release new prints.
Happy is an oil painter specializing in portraits of ethereal maidens in surreal worlds.
Her beautiful yet lonely characters are able to find a sense of belonging in an otherwise strange and eerie universe. This is a universe without the rules of logic or physics, where any idea or desire can manifest itself into poetic visuals.
Happy's art is meant to transplant the viewer into that same mind space of wonder and possibility.
Happy's work has been sold in galleries and private collections around the world. Her clients and partners include Gamblin Artist Colors, Royal and Langnickel Brush, and Pinterest.
