Fall brings variety to Denver galleries: From abstract visions and incisive figurative worlds to contemporary folk pieces, there's art for every taste this weekend. Here's where to find it.

Gallery Sketches: Four New Shows in Denver September 10-13
Mark Penner Howell

New Works: Heather Patterson and Barbara Sorensen, with Mark Penner Howell, Patricia Finley and Mel Rea in the back gallery
Walker Fine Art 
September 11 through November 7
Opening reception: 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, September 11

Every opening at Walker Fine Art packs a multi-artist punch, and this September’s is no different. Featuring painter Heather Patterson’s cosmic layered works and Barbara Sorenson’s wiry metal sculptures in the front, and pop explorations from Mark Penner Howell, resin-enhanced paintings by Patricia Finley and cloudy wash works by Mel Rea in the back, the variety of this new works showcase is astounding. In Howell’s corner, expect a particularly colorful set of fresh statements about the world we live in. If you can’t make it to the opening, subsequent receptions will take place on First Fridays in October and November.

Ashley Eliza Williams, Goodwin Fine Art

Phenomena: New Paintings by Ashley Eliza Williams
Goodwin Fine Art
September 11 through November 24
Opening reception: 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, September 11

Ashley Eliza Williams takes landscapes to a dreamy place at Goodwin Fine Art, with unsentimental imagery clouded over by mist — and maybe spaceships. Williams describes her process as “drawing upon imperfect memories of atmospheric occurrences and the implicit feelings of impermanence created by natural disasters…suggesting an imagined future devoid of human beings, but still influenced by our former presence.” Photographer Andrew Beckham documents aspen trees in the Project Space. In both cases, expect to be mesmerized.

Jaime Molina, The Lonely Limner
Super Ordinary Gallery
Opening reception: 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, September 12

Jaime Molina’s rich storytelling murals are becoming a familiar — and welcome — sight on urban walls around Denver. But Molina, aka “Cuttyup,” who began as a printmaker, is also a traditional painter, as well as a folk-art sculptor who builds free-standing and wall pieces out of old wood and nails.
