Artist Happy Hour at the Lobby: Photos by Greg Thow, ambiance by Eric Matelski

The Lobby is only one of the venues that have relied on Denver art curator and 2010 Westword MasterMind Eric Matelski to organize a rotating series of art shows for their walls over the years -- the Lobby is the only venue he's curated its doors first opened to the public, Matelski says. And he continues to host Artist Happy Hours at the restaurant on occasional Monday nights.
"The Artist Happy Hour is a great way of just getting people to mingle around art," he says. "The staff there is so welcoming and receptive to the art. Plus, I really like just soaking in all the history of the old Paris Hotel."
Tonight's happy-hour reception features photographer Greg Thow, whose images of Denver positively glow. "Greg happens to catch a lot of photos of our favorite town's good side," Matelski notes. "I feel his sense of composition and his knack for the right moment makes the Mile High City shine."
And if that interests you, he adds, "I also have to mention Greg's photos are very reasonably priced." A guy's gotta live, right?
