"Muses" at Helikon Gallery in Denver, CO

I have three brand new paintings in "Muses of Mount Helikon
opening this Sat, Nov 1, 2014 
at Helikon Gallery in Denver, CO.
Reception: 6-10 pm
Show runs through Dec 20th

"Sheep", acrylic/graphite on mounted panel, 16w x 20h"

"Pony", acrylic/graphite on mounted panel, 16w x 20h"

"Cat", acrylic/graphite on mounted panel, 16w x 20h"

" 'Muses of Mount Helikon II' is our inaugural, group showing of inspiring and influential artists from across the country, with over two dozen artists included. Muses is a showcase of contemporary illustration, painting, drawing, digital art, and sculpture where subject matter is left open.

"Muses of Mount Helikon II" features the works of Edward Kinsella, Sergio Lopez, Michael Reedy, Tran Nguyen, Chris Buzelli, Jim Salvati, Joanne Nam, Buddy Nestor, Yana Payusova, Ryan Lee, Rebecca Green, Zoë Williams, Michael Gallegos, Elena Gunderson, Jose Daniel Cabrera Peña, Sierra Barela, Marc Scheff, Valeriya Volkova, Emily J. Moore, Kaitlin Ziesmer, Janelle Anderson, Sara Wilson, Rachel Fagiano, Hollie Chastain, Jennifer Davis, Delton Demarest, Joan Kresek, Mike Fudge, and Leon Loucheour. 

The style and subject matter of each artist varies widely, resulting in a truly eclectic exhibit that will delight and surprise viewers. Whether it’s the see-through anatomical figure paintings of Michael Reedy, Joanne Nam’s haunting portraiture, the colorful, floral illustrations of Valeriya Volkova, or Ryan Lee’s delicate graphite drawings, there’s a breadth of art that relishes in the striking difference of each work while still celebrating a unified vision of new contemporary, illustrative art." -Helikon Gallery
