March 2014 Events at CHAC Gallery
CHAC Gallery Presents
An amazing array of photographic images created and compiled by more than thirty Denver and Colorado photographers will be exhibited from March 7 – 29, 2014. “The Focused Eye,” an annual juried photography exhibition is open to the public and admission is free. Judges for the show are Hal Gould and Loretta Young-Gautier. Curators are Judy Miranda and Charlie Walter.
“The show will feature an amazing, imaginative and beautiful array of work,” says curator and photographer Judy Miranda, who will also be showing. “Visitors will be seeing photography in a completely new and fascinating light.” Some of the artist/photographers are long-time professionals with decades of work along with national and international recognition. Others will be showing for the first time. “What they all have in common,” says Miranda, “are an eye and imagination that that has captured unique images and chosen to share with the world.”
“The Focused Eye,” will be one of the most elaborate and sophisticated photographic exhibits CHAC has ever showed. “We are expanding the viewing area and dedicating the entire space to this exhibit,” says Miranda, a former college educator and California expatriate.
Visitors can get their first look at the exhibit on Friday, March 7th when CHAC hosts an opening reception from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will be second CHAC reception on March 21st, also from6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. For more information go to www.facebook.com/chac.denver
CHAC Norte Presents
Dominic A. Domingo says, “My artwork is a reflection of me“. With his unique style and ability to work with multiple techniques, he creates his pieces using acrylic paints. His “Sculpture Paintings” are rich in form, color, composition and texture.
Jaime DelFino says, “Realistically surreal, abstractedly abstract, romantically mad & in love with the beauty that is, ‘Life.’ Punx not dead, it’s just in love.”
Beverly Green says, “My style of painting is both realistic and impressionistic.”
Rob Yancey aka: El Guero Santero, the name given to him by Stevon Lucero is an award winning, international selling Santero. El Guero Santero continues to explore La Cultura and Chicanismo through his art and continues his journey into assimilation.
Suzanne Martino says, “I make an attempt through artistic commentary to look at the ways in which our humanity unfolds. Sometimes it is with seriousness, sometimes humor and hopefully always with a bit of whimsy and imagination.”
Michael Penny, “A generous heart, kind speech and a life of service and compassion are things that renew humanity”-Buddha.
Lisa Diamor Sanchez says, “I am so excited to kick off the New Year at CHAC. This gallery is a great community to be a part of, we give back at every opportunity and I feel honored to help when I can. I will be busy traveling around the country to art shows this year but will always call CHAC home and will be exhibiting as much as possible there.”
Rebecca Rozales says, “Art is not only a business but a business expression.”
Robert Martinez relates this quote to his artwork, “Art must discover and reveal the beauty which prejudice and caricature have overlaid.” Alaine Locke
