Pattern Shop Studio
June 2-30
Opening Reception: Friday, June 2, 6 to 9 p.m.
Artist Salon: Saturday, June 17, 4 to 6 p.m.

Pattern Shop opens its semi-private doors in June for a show by topical Colorado collagist Jessica Loredo, whose patchwork pieces unfold in one dizzying pastiche after another in a media-like barrage of politics, movements and information. In addition to the June 2 reception, Loredo will elaborate with a talk on June 17; otherwise, the gallery is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursdays or by appointment at 303-297-9831.

Ryan Rice: A New Beginning
R2 Studio & Gallery
4424 Tennyson Street
Opening reception: Friday, June 2, 6 to 10 p.m.

Longtime Denver pop artist Ryan Rice isn’t exactly throwing in the towel, but he is giving up his studio/gallery retail space on Tennyson Street in Berkeley in favor of a custom home studio he’s in the process of building in Arvada. As a goodbye gift to his fans, Rice is discounting every painting in the gallery (and promising to continue an online presence while the new studio is under construction). Bid farewell to the space and find a bargain at the closing party.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
