CPAC’s 59th Annual Juried Members’ Show
WHEN: Through Aug. 6, 2022
WHERE: Colorado Photographic Arts Center
This tradition showcases CPAC’s talented community of over 550 members and provides artists, both locally and nationally, with an important exhibition opportunity. This year’s esteemed juror is Gregory Harris, the Donald and Marilyn Keough Curator of Photography at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. More than 800 images were submitted by photographers at all experience levels, from which Harris selected 30 works.
Dioramas From Eden
WHEN: Through Aug. 13, 2022
WHERE: K Contemporary
In Dioramas From Eden, Andrew Jensdotter continues his practice of painting hundreds of layers of iconic pictures of a single subject from Google image searches and popular magazines and then carving through the final amalgamation to create an “original” of his own. What was once representational with a clear focal point becomes a decidedly all-over abstract composition almost archaeological in nature. This laborious and emotional process of erasure synchronizes with the show’s theme: an elaboration on the Garden of Eden and the concept of expulsion from paradise. It derives from a painting called Thistles sold at Untitled Art in Miami in December 2021.
Portrait of a Culture
WHEN: Through Aug. 20, 2022
WHERE: McNichols Civic Center Building, Denver Arts & Venues
This exhibit features portraits by artists Kelle (Nigeria), Jordan Jones (Florida), and Yazmin Atmore (Denver). Through their works, each artist showcases their unique approaches to portraiture.

WHERE: MCA DENVER — Museum of Contemporary Art Denver
