“D’art 3 – D’art Gallery 3rd Anniversary Members Exhibition” The exhibition marks the Third Anniversary for the gallery. D’art Gallery opened at 900 Santa Fe Drive on August 1, 2019 featuring 18 contemporary artists. The gallery has thrived during the past three years in spite of COVID, economic downturns, and changes in the Art District on Santa Fe.
The Artists of D’art Gallery have manifested their original intention of providing a contemporary, progressive, professional art exhibition space. Each member exhibits in a shared solo show once a year and participates in three group exhibitions annually. Last year, with the addition of Gallery East, D’art Gallery has offered exhibition space to artists in the area to exhibit in the Art District on Santa. The gallery continues to persist in providing an exhibition space where members enjoy sharing their creativity, commitment and dedication to the art making process.
This is a community of artists who support each other in their creative exploration and evolution of their personal expression. With deep gratitude and appreciation for the support D’art received during the past three years, gallery members chose “D’art 3 – D’art Gallery 3rd Anniversary Members Exhibition” for the title of the exhibition to celebrate how the gallery has grown into a “gallery to the third power”.
At D’art Gallery, art appreciators will discover a wide variety of artistic techniques, styles and points of view to create a unique collection of contemporary artwork. The work exhibited by members highlights each artist’s personal expression using various media; ceramics, painting, print-making, photography, sculpture and mixed media.
The exhibition features eighteen Denver area contemporary artists exhibiting diverse and thought provoking art: Steve Austin, Terrel Bailey, Jaime Belkind-Gerson, Carol Bivins, Lisa Calzavara, Barbara DeMarlie, Suzanne Frazier, James Holmes, Ashton Lacy Jones, Tara Kelley-Cruz, Carrie MaKenna, Morgan McKenna, Emily Oldak, Lydia Riegle, Kim Roberts, Jean Smith, Vicky Smith and Cheri Vilona.
The work of participating artists can be viewed at https://dartgallery.org History Of D’art Gallery Eight months after opening, COVID lockdown hit and the gallery responded to the Governor’s and Denver Mayor’s requests to close all businesses that were not essential. The March exhibition was closed on March 17, 2020. Immediately, the following Monday, D’art Gallery repositioned a “moveable exhibition wall” so that work hung on that wall, plus the two front walls could be viewed from the front door and set up a group show. The exhibition, “D’art Gallery Walk Up Window Members Exhibition” ran from: 3/23/20 – 5/15/20
In April when online galleries seemed to be the only answer for shuttered galleries, D’art Gallery, in addition to the “Walk Up Window” Exhibition, added an online exhibition, “Through the Portal”, featuring members work on the D’art Gallery webpage from; 4/27/20 – 5/15/20.
On May 15, 2020, D’art Gallery was able to open the doors to the gallery exhibition space again but to a limited number of people (10 or less). The members repositioned the moveable wall and set up a second group exhibition; Andrà Tutto Bene”, translated from the Italian as “Everything is Going To Be All Right”. From 5/15/20 – 6/14/20, D’art opened with limited hours.
On 6/15/20 the gallery continued the limited hours the gallery was open but resumed the exhibition schedule that had been interrupted by the COVID restrictions. The gallery moved forward, against all odds, and reorganized the exhibition schedule to include all the artists whose exhibitions had been interrupted by the COVID restrictions. Since then the gallery has been able to maintain a regular exhibition schedule of member solo exhibitions and group exhibitions.
Thursday Noon – 5pm, Friday Noon to 9 pm, Saturday Noon to 5 pm, Sunday, 1 pm to 4 pm, with special Sunday Hours 11 am – 4 pm the last Sunday of each month for “Sundays on Santa Fe”.
