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

    Mark Brasuell's solo at Edge Gallery (3658 Navajo Street, 303-477-7173) has the bizarre title of Difficult Abstraction. I say it's bizarre because the four paintings that make up the show are not the least bit hard to look at. The artist apparentl...

    Love-Hate Relationship - Dirty Story is a rich exploration of the conflict in Palestine.

    Would I have preferred not to know that John Patrick Shanley's Dirty Story was an allegory about the struggle between Israel and Palestine when I sat down to view it? If I hadn't known, the last line of the first act would have been a complete shock....

    Sketchy Stuff - Buntport's Macblank, while funny, feels like an extended skit.

    In putting together their original comedy Macblank, the folks at Buntport relied on the theatrical superstition that there's a curse on Shakespeare's Macbeth and that those performing it are in danger of unknown catastrophe. There really are actors w...

    Mind Games - Miners' Rose Garden adaptation feels aloof.

    At Long Last, Beauty - Rex Ray's newest collages stop hearts at Rule.

    One of the weirdest twists in contemporary art over the last quarter-century -- other than increased interest in boring videos and self-indulgent performances -- is the way in which beauty has come to be denigrated. Today's art world is suspicious of...
