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.
