CPAC is a proud partner of Month of Photography (MoP) Denver, a biannual celebration of fine art photography with hundreds of collaborative public events throughout the region in March and April 2017. There's something for everyone -- don't miss out!
Processus, The Institute for Art and Life, presents:
Horror & Wonder Works by Michael Garlington
Opening Reception: March 11, 7-11 pm March 11- June 10, 2017
955 24th St. Denver CO 80205
Slides and Records March 15th and April 19th from 7 -10 pm
2 evenings of slides and records including Andrew Novick, Kristin Buck, Bob Collier Jewett, Jody Akers, Christopher R. Perez and Viviane Le Courtois.
Michael Garlington is a photographer, master printer and sculptor who creates installations, photo-sculptures and photographic works with elaborate sculptural frames. The works in this exhibition reflect human emotions and experiences using 4 x 5 film and mixed media. Some of the works are created in collaboration with his partner Natalia Bertotti.
Raised in Petaluma, California, where he lives and works, Michael was influenced early on by a wide mix of characters. He started working at his mother and step father’s photo Lab, Splinder Photographic, at 17. He embarked on an artistic mission at 21, creating backdrops for his figurative photo-sculptures. In 2000, he traveled with a group of artists across the US and Europe in PhotoCar, a car covered with his photos, gaining attention along the way. Since 2004, Michael has been included in Photo LA, Photo NY and Photo SF. He has exhibited internationally. Major projects include PhotoHouse created for San Francisco CameraWorks in 2010, the 40 feet tall PhotoChapel created at Burning Man in 2013 and a 60 foot tall Totem of Confessions in 2014 also at Burning Man. The pieces created for Burning Man were burned down in spectacular fiery deaths. Michael Garlington and Natalia Bertotti, who have been working together since 2013, now plan to create lasting installations such as a four ways confessional to be installed at the Hermitage Museum in Norfolk, Virginia, in June 2017.
It's our favorite time of the year! Starting in March, Denver will transform into a fine art photography feast, with hundreds of collaborative exhibitions, openings, artist talks, and other events throughout the region. To celebrate, CPAC and our partners present three special exhibitions:
Guaranteed to be a highlight of MoP, this solo show by Chicago-based artist Jess Dugan explores the power of identity, desire, and connection through portraits of herself and others. Her images have been exhibited internationally, and she was recognized by The White House as a 2015 Champion of Change for her activism on LGBTQ issues. Presented by CPAC in partnership with RedLine.

Grand Opening of Seidel City: A Multi-Media Celebration of Colorado Art and Community
DECEMBER 2 @ 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Kristen Hatgi Sink "Bonnie" 38 x 48 "
As HOVAB considers the past, we are also intensely interested in the future — fresh, invigorating! And at last there’s a new “seasoned” kid in town. Its name is Seidel City.
Terry Seidel, creator and proprietor of Seidel City ─ a contemporary art gallery and series of outbuildings just outside Boulder city limits ─ thoughtfully designed his studio and surrounding work/play spaces to be interactive, inclusive, and cool.
On December 2, Seidel City officially opens its doors with a grassroots event akin to “where the rubber meets the road” ─ shining the spotlight on the artists and the art itself versus the institution where it’s housed. This, too, is HOVAB’s mission, and in Boulder, this has become essential.
Seidel’s vision is to give participants a multi-media experience that’s a little “rougher around the edges,” yet possessing a soft heart ─ reminiscent of Boulder County’s creative community in the early 1980’s. Seidel is the host of HOVAB@ Mr. Pool Gallery: Objects and Abstractions and we are proud to be associated with him and this exciting new venture!
Seidel likens his approach to the new space as “Guerilla Arts,” where word of mouth is where it’s mostly at.
Reception: December 2, 6-10 PM, free and open to the public 3205 Longhorn Rd Boulder, CO 80302 303-591-1553
