"I've been amazed by the ambition of some of the artists as reflected in production values, scale and the inclusion of some long-term projects," says Jacobs. One revelation was the way in which the show echoed DU's program. "Academic art programs emphasize re-search and long-term thinking," Jacobs notes. "So there's a lot of substantive work here that is executed really wonderfully."
Included artists, several of whom are well known in the community, are: Lawrence Argent, Kevin Curry, Susan Meyer, Jessie Paige, Deborah Howard, Catherine Chauvin, Mindy Bray, Roddy MacInnes, Lauren Mayer and Timothy Weaver. The show continues through March 11. For additional details, call 303-871-3716 or go to www.myhrengallery.com.
