Commissioned by Wayne F. Yakes, M.D.

Plus Gallery’s history with Jenny Morgan is amongst the deepest and most remarkable of any artist we’ve represented in our 14 year history. Morgan was the first intern with the gallery a short time after first opening, and since then has gone on to become one of our most revered, exciting and collected artists. Having lived in New York City ever since she left Denver in 2006, Morgan has returned almost every year for either a solo exhibition with the gallery, or subsidiary exhibitions that prominently feature her work. The latest in that line is the solo exhibition “Now you see me (now you don’t),” presented at the beautiful Art Gallery at the Fulginetti Pavilion for Bioethics and Humanities at the UC Anschutz Medical Campus from September 10th through November 5th. Her latest solo will feature a remarkable selection of works from the esteemed collection of Wayne F. Yakes, M.D., one of the world’s most dedicated art collectors and supporter of numerous contemporary exhibitions in Denver and elsewhere over the last decade (including the fabulous Kim Dorland show held earlier this year at the MCA Denver). Like many of Jenny’s best collectors, Dr. Yakes support has been continually steady. But the Yakes’ collection is absolutely singular in its depth, with some of the leading and most hard-hitting examples of Morgan’s output from all of her exhibitions since she turned the corner with her career upon completing advanced graduate studies at the School of Visual Arts in NY. Fulginetti Pavilion curator Simon Zalkind is one of the most respected authorities on contemporary art in the region, and also one of the most passionate when it comes to supporting contemporary artists from Colorado or who have careers centered in the state. His selection of works from Dr. Yakes collection for the exhibition will be accompanied by a full-color catalog that features a recent dialogue between Zalkind and Morgan, making it a must-have for any fans and collectors of her work.Plus Gallery lends our full support for the exhibition during our extended interim phase while considering a new physical space to properly house the program.
