Business Description

Plus Gallery has enriched Denver's contemporary art scene since 2001, providing one of the leading, reputable platforms for prestigious artist representation and exhibitions of note in the region. The gallery recently relocated to the corner of 25th and Larimer in North Downtown Denver, into a unique renovation of a remnant parcel of the Benjamin Moore Paint Factory. This singular redevelopment adds a two-story gallery space to the dramatic architecture of the historic Benjamin Moore complex, serving as a visual anchor for the entrance to the Upper Larimer corridor and River North Arts District. The gallery was named "Art Space of the Year" in 2009 by the Denver Post and has been hailed as the "Best New Gallery" by the Westword Weekly the same year. Plus Gallery is a member of the Denver Art Dealers Association.
