Following the same principle as do Parisian venues, Denver galleries, museums, and art centers have joined forces to present a cross-section of the local scene, without forgetting to attract nationally known artists.

Tahquechi’s photos are almost sensual in nature and speak to the fluidity and softness of the human form. Klafter’s photographs explore her personal anxieties around disability, femininity, and body image.
