There's plenty action of the co-op front this weekend, with all kinds of anniversaries being celebrated by Space Gallery on Santa Fe Drive (don’t miss Susan Oehme’s wall and hanging-glass installations at the main gallery), and happenings at Next Gallery in Lakewood.
Any time is a good time to view art; here's what's on walls around town.
Rochelle Johnson, Release
LMP PDA, Lane Meyer Projects, 2528 Walnut Street
Through May 2, 24 hours a day
Painter Rochelle Johnson is the current artist displaying work in the Lane Meyer Projects outdoor window box, just another in a long line of exhibitions over the past year for the member of RedLine’s newest crop of residents. Johnson is so happy to be there that she’s donating 5 percent of sales from the display to the nonprofit arts center. Go have a look, any old time.
Oehme Graphics Ten-Year Anniversary
Space Annex, 95 South Cherokee Street
Through June 5
It’s master printmaker Susan Oehme’s time to shine as she celebrates the tenth anniversary of her studio in Steamboat Springs with two separate shows mounted under the wing of Space Gallery.

Susan Oehme isn’t the only one celebrating an anniversary with Space Gallery this spring.

Center for the Arts Evergreen, 31880 Rocky Village Drive, Evergreen
April 23 through May 22
Opening Reception: Friday, April 23, 4 to 7 p.m. (RSVP online for a limited-space live Q&A with the artists at 6 p.m., or watch it on Zoom.)

Wanderlust, in the Community Gallery
Next Gallery, Art Hub, 6851 West Colfax Avenue, Lakewood
Through May 9 (Wanderlust continues through May 30)
Plantstravaganza pop-up: Saturday, April 24, noon to 5 p.m.; RSVP at Eventbrite
Spring is popping at Next Gallery with member shows by Terra Marks and Betsy Rudolph, a group show called Wanderlust — the very thing we’re all feeling after a year of being locked up — and this Saturday, a collaborative Plantstravaganza pop-up hosted by Marks and Rudolph. Marks’s show, a sweet contemplation filled with origami cranes, is her first gallery exhibition, while Rudolph gets weird with her collage work; for the pop-up, Marks shares special seed mixes packaged in reclaimed book pages, and newly propagated house plants in repurposed containers, while Rudolph’s contribution is a spread of plant prints: so easy to care for!
Meeting With the Goddess
Artemesia Galerie, 836 Santa Fe Drive
Through July 18
Opening Reception: Friday, April 23, 4 to 10 p.m.
Artemesia continues with its inclination for nudes and fantasy in Meeting With the Goddess, a big group show that focuses on female archetypes and beautiful bodies.
