I can only guess how you feel.



Conceptual Inatallations

Opening February 5, 2015
February 5 - February 27, 2014

Originally from Boston, Steve Legg came to Colorado via South Florida 2004. His work has been shown in Miami, Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and here in Denver.

Legg's artwork has evolved from what we call "anecdotal photography", into photographic assemblages, video, indoor/outdoor installations, performance art, and sculpture in the round. His ultimate goal is to see himself and everything around him with complete objectivity, and to create art from that standpoint. Preferring the non-genderized title of "s.legg", he has just complete a year in which he didn't speak and instead just watched and recorded everything he observed. Most of his artwork as well as the following excerpt, are some of the products of those 12 month in silence.

"3/21/14 I will no longer be male or female, black or white, homosexual or heterosexual, Chinese or American, Catholic or Buddhist, left or right. These labels imply beliefs in specific ideologies. Ideologies, rule breakers and perceptions are intellectually lazy ways of confronting the world. Subjective labels and categorizations need to be replaced with objectivity and empathy. I must try to see everything and everyone from all viewpoints and contexts, not just my own."




INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR ENTRY



Month of Photography 2015

Opening March 5, 2015
March 5 - April 3, 2015

Surrealistic explorations deep into the terrain of the subconscious mind are the theme of this call. Revelation of psychological forces hidden just beneath the surface of reality are wanted to be seen. Surrealism can mean a lot of different things for the individual photographer. We encourage mixed media techniques and unusual printing substrates but they still have to be photography based.

Deadline February 2, 2015.

Greg Amanti
Tempest



Photography

Opening April 10, 2015
April 10 - May 1, 2015

Greg Amanti's work often begins with a misinterpretation of sights and sounds. This series encompasses many different materials, the majority of his work is built on a foundation of string and plaster. Greg starts with a sketch and then builds the illustration into a three dimensional representation.

Tempest is a stylized version of being immersed in various types of storms, out of which comes destruction, chaos and beauty. His intention is to dispel any artifice or illusion, to expose the detritus when viewed up close and at a distance the photos redefine the work into an inviting disarray.

Greg Amanti was born in New York's Hudson River Valley in 1971. He attended the Art Institute of Seattle with a focus in commercial photography. He has been included in two group shows at Mussi Artworks gallery in Berkeley Ca. and the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art. His work has been featured in Photographers Forum and won "Photographers Forum Award of Excellence". He currently works and resides in Denver Co. with one wife, two cats and loads of string.

Jennifer Omaitz



Installation

Opening June 19, 2015
June 19 - July 10, 2015

Over the past five years Omaitz has explored site-specific installation. The installations built encompass three-dimensional landscapes frozen in the midst of a chaotic event. This “event” is reminiscent of a landscape that has been caught in a fictitious disaster. By incorporating drawing and painting with objects and found materials, this ignites play between the structure of the gallery and the theatrics of the painterly gesture and their united associations. This sense of theater is a formal extension of the shadows cast by gallery lights, the configuration of the wall, ceiling, and the intrinsic architectural nature of the given space.

Jennifer Omaitz lives in Kent, OH and works in Kent and Cleveland. She holds an MFA in painting from Kent State University and a BFA in painting from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Solo exhibitions of her work have been held at The Sculpture Center, Cleveland; Sandy Carson Gallery, Denver; and Kent State University, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland.

Her work was featured at the 2010 Biennial of the Americas in Denver. Omaitz is a part-time faculty member at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Kent State University, and the University of Akron. She is represented by 1point618 Gallery, Cleveland.
