Blank Canvas Cafe (Colorado Springs)

Blank Canvas Cafe
~ 103 S Wahsatch Ave #106, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80903 ~

A great little hole-in-the-wall restaurant and cafe off of Wahsatch avenue in downtown Colorado Springs. It appears to be a popular hangout and has great reviews. I unfortunately have not yet tried it out. They offer a unique assortment of teas, pastries, salads, paninis, sandwiches, and locally roasted coffee. They offer an artistic space for local artists and hand-made creations from the Studio as well as poetry readings, open mic night, comedy, music, and entertainment. The cafe is the vision of Dream Catchers and funded by Ariel Clinical Services.

Rated: Unrated of 5 stars. This establishment has not yet been reviewed. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

Jenny Morgan Exhibit (DMCA)

Jenny Morgan Exhibit (http://www.technogypsie.com/reviews/?p=31835)

Jenny Morgan Exhibit
2017 at the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver, Colorado.

The Summer 2017 exhibit of Jenny Morgan’s works and paintings at the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art were fantastic. This exhibition in my opinion was the top exhibit of all displayed at the Museum this season. Her work was embracing and drew me into the paintings. Her sense of style was ethereal and enchanting. There was a spiritual essence to her work. The exhibit was characteristic of good art. I was impressed. I’m not usually a fan of contemporary art, but this one instance I was intrigued. ~ Leaf McGowan Rating 5 stars out of 5

Jenny Morgan was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1982 and spent a good portion of her life living and working in New York City. She received her Master of Fina Arts at the New York of Visual Arts in 2008. She embraces the figure as her most compelling subject matter as it feels natural within the ebb and flow of her style of portraits. She prides herself in finding different ways and methods in approaching her subject and realism. She plays around with the paint on the canvas just to stay interested and engaged in the work. She focuses her work on people she knows personally as she depicts them on canvas.

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.

Rubbish Gallery (Jan 2009) (Colorado Springs, Colorado)

Rubbish Gallery * 17B E. Bijou * Colorado Springs, CO 80903 * 719-640-5282

January 6-February 6, 2009: “Altered Pieces and Mythology for the Zeitgeist” Exhibit
Opening reception: 5:30 p.m.-12 a.m.
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.
