Sharon Opens New Show: "Trumped!"

In her latest series, Pattern Shop Studio resident artist Sharon Brown explores the political landscape in America through portraits of President Donald Trump and members of his Administration, both former and current. Each painting is based on a publicly available image of the subject to which Brown applies her eye, her skill and current events to take a deeper look at the people running our country.   Trumped! is an unabashedly political exhibition and a celebration of our rights to speak out against those who abuse their power.


Trumped! will open with a reception on Friday, November 3, 6-9 pm and will be on view until Friday, December 22. Additional receptions will be held on Friday, December 1 and December 22, 6-9 pm. The gallery will also be open for groups or individuals any time by appointment (303-297-9831).

Sharon Brown's "Repeat Offenders" June 3rd--August 5th, 2016 at The Pattern Shop Studio

 

Resident artist Sharon Brown is combining new work from her "Creators" series with older work from her "Damage" series to create a thought provoking exhibit for the summer entitled "Repeat Offenders."  "Creators" features large black and white oil portraits of Denver artists and creatives. "Damage" features colorful portraits of criminals, all of whom have both inflicted damage upon others and have themselves been damaged at some point in their lives.  By combining these bodies of work, Repeat Offenders explores the purpose and potential of portraiture, raising questions about its social class history, the faces that artists tend to paint or ignore,  the nature of offensiveness, and much more. 

The show opens at the Pattern Shop Studio, 3349 Blake Street, on First Friday, June 3rd from 6 to 9 pm; continues on First Friday, July 1st; and closes on First Friday, August 5th. As always, the gallery will be open for special RiNo Art District events and, as usual, open any time by appointment.  Please call 303-297-9831 for more information or to schedule a viewing.
