Child’s Play

Artist Sharon Brown and her husband, Rex, own the Pattern Shop Studio in the RiNo district. It’s a unique place that’s not only their home and Sharon’s studio, but also a gallery. For The Collectibles, the Browns have invited three artists — Tracy Weil, Danyl Cook and Jimmy Sellars — to exhibit work with the shared theme of toys.

“The show originated from our observation that Tracy, Danyl and Jimmy each have a number of action figures — Transformers, G. I. Joes, that kind of thing — and we thought it would be fun to show them,” says Rex. But the exhibit isn’t made up of a bunch of dolls; instead, there’ll be paintings and three-dimensional objects on the theme of these figures.”

The exhibit opens tonight with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Pattern Shop, 3349 Blake Street. “The show is sophisticated, but it’s also kid-friendly,” says Rex, pointing out that on May 22, kids can bring their own figures to the studio to join in the festivities.
