July 22 through August 20
Opening reception: 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 22

Gallery 1261 asked 25 painters to go big — really big — for a summer exhibit showing off their answers to that challenge. The large-scale canvases cover everything from landscape to figurative imagery, making for a splashy show that’s easy on the eyes.

Mary Mackey Art Studio Grand Opening
530 Santa Fe Drive
6 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 22

Longtime Denver painter and former Jefferson Park gallery owner Mary Mackey is back, with a newly purchased studio space on Santa Fe Drive that she’ll share with Rule Gallery starting in September. But Mackey’s already moved in, has new art on the walls, and will celebrate with a studio open house. Drop by and say hi.

New Works by Sara Ransford
Michael Warren Contemporary
Through September 3
Opening reception: 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 22

Sara Ransford’s sculptural pieces inspired by natural forms and featuring modern porcelain-based mediums have taken over Michael Warren Contemporary. “I am fascinated by the complexity in nature and how that complexity reflects itself in our own world. The forces of erosion, the aspect of time, traces of experiences recorded over eons, only to be changed in a single moment, can create such vulnerability and duplicity in things we do not anticipate,” says Ransford of the work. If you miss the July 22 opening, additional receptions are scheduled for first and third Fridays in August and September.
