Four artists stake their claims in Appropriated: The Chronicled West at Robischon Gallery

There are big openings of shows at the Denver Art Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art that explore international and Californian phenomena -- but don't miss the exhibit opening tonight at

Robischon Gallery

that touts imagery from right in our own back yard.

Appropriated: The Chronicled West, which will be celebrated at an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight, features the work of a quartet of homegrown artists working in the milieu of the West. Four completely different visions -- Stephen Batura's monumental and painstaking recreations of photographs documenting trainwrecks, Edie Winograde's photographs of historical re-enactors, Jerry Kunkel's take on the great romantic painters of the West and Gary Emrich's Western kitsch images -- provide a whole landscape of possibilities.

It's a show as big as the Western horizon is wide, and runs through May 5. For more information, go to the Robischon Gallery's website or call 303-298-7788.
