    Deeper Digging Needed - Gary Austin's one-man Oil is no character gusher.

    Oil begins with an unidentified, cowboy-hatted oilman leaning back in a chair and justifying drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The speech is droll -- the work is so environmentally sound, the oilman tells us, that the caribou sidle up ...

    Death of a Salesman. This is one of those low-budget shows held together with chewing gum, string and ferocious determination. Which means that it's uneven, the set and lighting are minimal, and a couple of the performances are downright amateurish....

    Real World - Contemporary realism is on display at Robischon, while get-realism takes over at RMCAD.

    Robischon Gallery has a pair of solos in its front rooms that look so good, they could be the first shows of the fall season -- except that it's a month early. Installed in the entry space and the one behind it is JAMES COLBERT: The Long View; hung i...

    Change of Scenery - Warren Kelly, Jules Olitski and Christo make contemporary art about the landscape.

    I well recall the first time I saw Warren Kelly's work. It was the summer of 2002, and I had found myself at Pirate: a contemporary art oasis. In the main space was a thoroughly amazing and absolutely unforgettable painting solo. I thought to myself,...

    Acting Triumphs - Colorado Shakespeare Festival thaws The Winter's Tale.

    The Winter's Tale, part of the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, is a peculiar hybrid of a play. It begins as tragedy, then lurches into full comic mode. There's a sixteen-year gap in time, more comedy, and it's back to gravitas for the final scenes. Th...

    After three years, the commercial-gallery part of Studio Aiello (3563 Walnut Street, 303-297-8166) is giving up the ghost. The business succumbed to sluggish art sales and the disadvantage of an off-the-beaten-track location. On the bright side, othe...
