GUEST CURATED BY ABEND GALLERY & IX ARTS
FEBRUARY 1 – MARCH 11, 2017
At the beginning of each year, Helikon collaborates with guest curators to host unique exhibits highlighting the overlap of our shared curatorial visions. We are honored to feature an exhibit crafted by Abend Gallery, a staple of Denver’s contemporary art community known for their broad, inspired exhibitions of figurative, realist, and imaginative visual artists.
“Inner Visions” was originally exhibited at Abend Gallery, making a second showing at Helikon in Gallery 101. Imaginative realism, as the cutting edge of contemporary realist painting,combines classical painting technique with postmodern narrative subjects, focusing on the unreal, the unseen, and the impossible, offering visions of humanity’s mythic past, its unexplored future and,in some cases, its terrifying present.
