Matthew Larson and Clark Richert: String Theory
Rule Gallery
February 13 through March 21
Opening Reception: 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, February 13

Rule presents a fresh batch of Clark Richert’s confoundingly beautiful geometric canvases, shown alongside work by Matthew Larson, a Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design graduate who now lives and works in New York. Larson follows his own geometric path using yarn on velcro as a medium; he's a perfect match for Richert in this two-man show.

April Frankenstein: What If We Fall in Love
Dateline 
6 p.m. Friday, February 13

Dateline's Jeromie Dorrance has given the space over to a solo interdisciplinary installation by Denver artist April Frankenstein that blends a month’s worth of drawings, photos, journal entries and collages into a day-by-day musing on human issues that we often subconsciously cover up: romance, sexuality and the personal spaces we choose to share — or not share.

After leaving his post as associate curator of Contemporary Art at the Denver Art Museum, William Morrow has struck out on his own as an independent curator. For Constructed Histories at David B. Smith, he’s brought together an international cast of artists in a group show of works that reflect on the footstep of history through art, from a global point of view.
