As both an artist and an art entrepreneur, Denver's Jimmy Sellars makes it a point to keep his eye on the international, and thanks to the wonders of the Internet, it's been a doable task. But that also makes it possible for him to easily pair a local painter and a Polish one, just like that, for a show that benefits from both the similarities and the differences in their work. Fragmented Forms, which opens today with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. at sellarsprojectspace, 4430 Tennyson Street, features works by CT Nelson and Gosia Kosiec, two figurative artists who live and paint in totally different milieus.
"It's interesting to see how two people who are so far apart each deal with fragmenting the form or image of a person," Sellars notes, something he'd never have noticed without the benefit of a computer screen. Forms continues through April 12; learn more about both artists tomorrow when they speak at 1 p.m. at the gallery (call 303-242-5563 for reservations).
