    Cool Summer Treats - Variety is the spice of contemporary group shows at + Gallery and Rule.

    Summer used to be the time when the art world all but shut down. The idea was that collectors were on vacation, so why bother with noteworthy exhibits? Directors, curators and dealers would simply throw together a group outing that showed off work by...

    Artbeat - Brief sketches of what's happening in the Denver art scene.

    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...

    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...

    Impulse Theater. Basements and comedy go together like beer and nuts or toddlers and sandboxes. The basement of the Wynkoop Brewery where Impulse Theater performs is crowded, loud and energetic. Impulse does no prepared skits, nothing but pure impro...

    Open and Closed - Japanese design is showcased at the CVA, while more art censorship hits Colorado.

    The last few months have been pretty tough for the Center for Visual Art, the LoDo mini-museum operated by Metropolitan State College of Denver. In a shocking move this past spring, the school's Republican-dominated board of trustees cut the center's...

    Artbeat - Brief sketches of what's happening in the Denver art scene.

    There's a funky new art spot in town that has the ridiculous name of Rhinoceropolis (3553 Brighton Boulevard, no phone). The venue recently opened in the old Wheelbarrow space, another funky art spot with a ridiculous name that closed some time ago. ...

    No Will Power - Colorado Shakespeare Festival's Twelfth Night isn't right.

    Twelfth Night begins with the lovestruck Count Orsino ordering up music to match his pleasurably melancholy mood. When his "If music be the food of love, play on" is answered by cheerful calypso sounds and he proceeds to practice a few dance steps, y...

    Painted Ponies - The Central Library surveys the brief, brilliant career of Frank Mechau.

    The second quarter of the twentieth century can be described as a golden age for Colorado art. Right after World War I, the Broadmoor Academy opened in Colorado Springs, developing a reputation as a nationally significant art school. But this was not...

    Artbeat - Brief sketches of what's happening in the Denver art scene.

    As I wandered through the Bethany Kriegsman solo, aptly named Treasure Island, at the William Havu Gallery (1040 Cherokee Street, 303-893-2360), it occurred to me that the Golden-based artist just might be the most overlooked first-rate artist in the...

    Bittersweet Love - Central City Opera breathes life into Madama Butterfly.

    Central City Opera's Madama Butterfly is beautifully sung, if a little over-directed. First performed in 1904, Puccini's opera tells the story of an American officer, B.F. Pinkerton, who is stationed in Japan and enters into an exploitative union wit...
