The opening show is Kimono Kakushin, by the Boundless Fiber Artists. Authentic kimonos have been surface-designed using various media, and stitched as contemporary quilts.  In Japanese, “Kakushin” embodies renewal, reform, and a change from the status quo. The show is up through December 2, 2014.

Link for Arts District

September 26, 2014

Just in from Regina Benson:

Last night was the first airing of PBS’ Arts District crew visiting my
studio and my current solo show, “Catching Fire” at Ice Cube Gallery in
Denver – I share this large gallery with another artist, Ray Tomasso, a
master paper artist, and his solo show, “Wind & Storm”. The PBS art’s
bureau was originally drawn to the solo show pairing – they saw a connection
in the concepts, materiality and process. I hope you enjoy it:
