Bright Idea: The Flemmings Create Industrial Art From Junk

You can find art all over town -- not just on gallery walls. In this series, we'll be looking at some of the local artists who serve up their work in coffeehouses and other non-gallery businesses around town.

Oregon-based artists Mandie and Nate Flemming love the Denver art scene so much that they're hauling their upcycled industrial lamps and clocks through the Rockies for Art Denver, which will hold its inaugural edition November 14 through November 16 at the Colorado Convention Center. "The city has a really cool atmosphere," says Mandie, still somewhat shocked that she was accepted into this debut art show produced by the Cherry Creek Arts Festival.
