Crowd Pleasers

Two shows display a plethora of artistic styles.

A real standout among the abstractions is Mark Friday's "Orion," a 1994 monotype. This print is related to Friday's sculptural wall pieces in that it suggests a physical, as opposed to an illusionary, presence.

In addition to the many abstractionists are a variety of artists working with recognizable images, such as nationally known landscape painter Joellyn Duesberry. Others, like Jesus Polanco and Matt O'Neill, combine abstraction and representation. In a different way, so does Amy Metier. And there are many, many more.

60/10 doesn't just mark the tenth birthday of Open Press. Rather, it is a wide-ranging look at a big chunk of Denver's current art scene.
