The allure of Denver's bustling art district on Santa Fe is a beguiling one for gallery owners and artist collectives. It is, without question, where the action is, a mecca that boils over with an art-loving influx on First Fridays. So when the space vacated by Capsule Gallery at 554 Santa Fe Drive came on the market, the folks at RiNo's oft-migrant Sliding Door Gallery cooperative jumped on it.
After a trial run last month, the Sliding Door faction will officially open its doors for Fresh New Happy Happy Fun Love, a group show of new works by gallery artists, with a reception tonight from 6 to 10 p.m. Sliding Door will keep Capsule's live-music tradition alive by featuring artist/musicians Kurt Bauer, Arnie Swenson, Reed Weimer and friends at the opening; the exhibit continues through February 27.
