Materialized, a group show featuring abstract works utilizing unusual materials, opens today at Robischon Gallery; it's a continuation of the gallery's Material Abstraction, which introduced the whole idea last summer.

Comprising three solos by Jae Ko, Lisa Stefanelli and Linda Fleming, with additional works by Derrick Velasquez, Kate Petley, Mary Ehrin, Judy Pfaff, Jaq Chartier and Andrew Millner, Materialized shares a couple of those artists with the Denver Art Museum's related Material World exhibit, curated by the DAM's William Morrow in conjunction with the museum-wide summer aggregation of separate textile-based exhibits, Spun. But it also raises interest on its own, with a sharp juxtaposition of like-minded artists who express themselves in very different ways.

Tonight's reception runs from 6 to 8 p.m.; the show continues through June 27 at Robischon. Keep reading for a sneak peek of what's in store.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
