03 Feb February News
It’s early February and we’re bracing for an overdue snowstorm here on the front range. Our fingers are crossed that visiting photographer Linda Connor lands in good time for her reception and gallery talk at Goodwin Fine Art in Denver this weekend.
Linda’s talk at Goodwin Fine Art, starting at 2 pm Saturday Feb 4, is a rare opportunity for people in our region to meet Linda and hear her speak about her work. She represents many iconic aspects of the medium – large format landscapes, spiritually-infused imagery, activism, education, and wild enthusiasm matched by even wilder hair; she is truly one of a kind and I’m thrilled to have CPAC team up with Tina Goodwin on this free event, which also includes Linda’s long-time friend and co-exhibitor Yoshitomo Saito.
Upcoming events at CPAC include an exhibition and workshop with award-winning photo-journalist Ed Kashi (February 17/18), accompanied by a show featuring the Working with Artists teaching faculty, the first in quite a while. March 29 we open a long-awaited show of punk rock photography by the Bay Area’s legendary Ruby Ray, who photographed for Search&Destroy magazine and co-founded RE/Search publications. This is happening in conjunction with MCA Denver’s Bruce Connor show, opening March 30, and the Gildar Gallery’s Richard Peterson show, opening March 23. Some details are posted on our web site, much more to follow soon.
“iWorld” closes at CPAC February 10 but its Colorado section continues at the Denver Central Library’s 5th Floor Gallery through March 25. “Borderlines,” featuring documentary works by Shaul Schwarz, Mike Kane, and Dana Romanoff, continues its repeat run at DU’s Museum of Anthropology through March 15.
