Punks & Monks Art Show – January 8-28th, 2010 – Colorado Springs, Colorado

Punks & Monks @ the Rubbish Art Gallery
* January 8th – 28th, 2010 * Rubbish Art Gallery * 17B Bijou Street * Colorado Springs, Colorado * www.rubbishgallery.com
Opening night began on January 8th at the Rubbish Art Gallery, in the alley across from the 15C Bar at 17B Bijou from 6 pm until 10 pm hosting the inspirational and spiritual artwork of Luke Sheffer who merges together the cultural juxtaposition of the spiritual with the punk musical. Taking the alternative singers, actors, and singers of his time, merged into a Christo-spiritual montage of the divine, Luke brings some remarkable glimpses of those who bring thought and action to words, images, and motion. The evening started out with some appetizers and the display of art, champagne and beer, wrapping up with a punk band called “The Pachisi Champion & the Nicotine Fits” with DJ Tanner and Juicebox spinning the night away. Good times and good conversations, brilliant visuals, and a fun time. Rating: 3 stars out of 5.

Regular gallery hours are Friday and Saturday from “5-ish to 10-ish.” A closing reception will be held February 6 from 5:30-11:30 p.m.

Attending briefly for the night of January 9th, during the 2nd friday art walk, I got a chance to walk down the dark alley into the little gallery hidden down in-between and across from the cigar bar 15-C. Nice catching up with a few friends over some wine and snacks, while listening to some great music, and viewing some spectacular art of “Alterned Pieces and Mythology for the Zeitgeist” by Neil Fenton. I was impressed. Its definitely a nice collection if you get a chance to drop by before February 6th, do so, its worth the trip. Wonderful assemblages of art. Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.

One of the fine events that represents some of the great events they hold each month, this annual event, brings together Self Exhibition art and performances for all to enjoy in the gallery. I attended the latter part of the night getting to see some musical performances and dances, as well as the spectacular art hanging around the gallery. Hundreds were in attendance, and each art room had snacks. A wine bar was also provided. The warehouse gallery space is phenomenal and normally is a great place to see art from local artists like Bob and Kat Tudor. I enjoyed my brief yet fantastic attendance at Future Self. Next year, I’ll be attending for much longer. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
