Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Sketch Wine Bar, 11 West First Avenue, lives up to its name when it hosts an art-show opening from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. tonight.

The artist? Sam Morreale, father of Sketch owner Jesse Morreale, who took up painting again after a ten-year break -- and a diagnosis of Myelofibrosis, a bone marrow disorder. Despite his health issues, over the past three months Sam Morreale has created twenty new, abstract expressionist paintings, many of which will go on display at Sketch today.

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
