Gallery Sketches: Four Art Events in Denver March 25-27
Dane "Colfax" Stephenson

Dane "Colfax" Stephenson: The Ark
Valkarie Gallery
March 23 through April 17
Opening reception: 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, March 25

Photographer and artist Dane "Colfax" Stephenson takes over Valkarie with The Ark, a menagerie of a show featuring subjects from the animal kingdom: precious pets, birds, bugs — you name it. Taking a cue from the viral world of the Internet, where animal images rule, Stephenson is currently booking appointments “for pet photography, cats, dogs, snakes, hamsters (not together), tarantulas and sea monkeys!” — but if you attend tonight's reception, you can take your chances in a drawing for one free session for your pet, with one free 8 x 10 color print thrown in. Valkarie and Stephenson will also host two pet photography sessions at a special show rate on April 2 and 9, by reservation only at dane.stephenson@hotmail.com. It’s an animal attraction: A portion of all sales will benefit a local animal charity.
