While the thriving arts districts within Denver city limits will be rocking tonight as Denver Arts Week kicks off with Know Your Arts First Friday, one of the newest kids on the block, the 40 West Arts District, will be touting the local artists of...Lakewood, our suburban neighbor to the west. The district, still finding its feet along West Colfax Avenue, is anchored by the Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design and the 40 West Art Gallery, which will eventually front an enclave of studios.
Van Gogh Goes West, a group exhibit inspired by the Denver Art Museum's Becoming Van Gogh show, will be celebrated at the gallery this evening with a reception and live music from 5 to 9 p.m.; the show continues through November 17. And next weekend, the space will open up further to host a daylong Arts Harvest Market on Saturday, November 10, featuring handmades of all kinds -- from glass beads to knitted wristlets -- created in Lakewood by local artists.
