Come “Experience” Plus Gallery one last time this week with a tribute exhibition that digs into many significant corners of our past. Over the last 14 years Plus Gallery has built a reputation as one of the leading models for contemporary artist representation and progressive exhibitions in the state of Colorado. Not only have we been the launching point for some of the most significant careers in the nation right now for a growing number of artists but we’ve also supported numerous artists that are considered historic in the context of Colorado’s contemporary art scene, both old and new.
It’s been an amazing experience growing our operation over the last fourteen years, and for our final week in our beautiful space at 2501 Larimer Street, one that has been recognized on several occasions for its architecture and integrity, we will be presenting a tribute exhibition that puts forth artworks that represent an interesting cross-section of our history, some of which haven’t been viewed in quite some time, and others that have never been properly on display in our space before. Experience will be on view through Saturday, October 25th.
Beginning in November, Plus Gallery will be mounting our first group exhibition in a new location, a continuation of our unique artistic experience and the launch into our next exciting phase. Check back for more details soon.
Plus Gallery has enriched Denver’s contemporary art scene since 2001, providing one of the leading, reputable platforms for prestigious artist representation and exhibitions of note in the region. The gallery recently relocated to the corner of 25th and Larimer in North Downtown Denver, into a unique renovation of a remnant parcel of the Benjamin Moore Paint Factory. This singular redevelopment adds a two-story gallery space to the dramatic architecture of the historic Benjamin Moore complex, serving as a visual anchor for the entrance to the Upper Larimer corridor and River North Arts District. The gallery was named “Art Space of the Year” in 2009 by the Denver Post and most recently ranked Number four on the Denver Posts 2014 list of Top Galleries. The gallery has been profiled for its distinct architecture in 5280, Modern In Denver and Art Ltd. Plus Gallery is a member of the Denver Art Dealers Association and the River North Arts District. Gallery owner Ivar Zeile has served as the creative director for the Denver Theatre District since 2009. He initiated Denver Digerati in 2012 as a platform for advancing animation and motion-based art as new forms of public art via Denver’s unique LED screen inventory, a program that continues to evolve as one of the leading platforms of its kind in the world today.
Plus Gallery has released four major artist monographs to date: “Jenny Morgan: We are all setting suns” is a 180 page book that features the artist’s entire body of work from 2010 through May of 2012. “Jenny Morgan: New Territory” is a 240 page book featuring a comprehensive view of paintings by Jenny Morgan from the time she debuted in 2003 through her 2009 Plus Gallery and NYC exhibitions. “Xi Zhang: Dream Dusts” features the majority of Zhang’s paintings from the critically acclaimed exhibition 12921 through his astounding 2011 MFA thesis painting No One’s Wonderland, Form is Emptiness. The 184 page “Colin Livingston – Artist” is the latest Plus Gallery publication to offer an in-depth view of one of the gallery’s most outstanding, celebrated contemporary artists. The book covers Livingston’s last three solo exhibitions from between the years 2006 and 2013, ones that have engaged the gallery context in a most extraordinary fashion, presenting conceptual painting-based installations where the underlying message is distinct and multi-layered.
