(Denver) The United States is living through an incredibly divisive social climate further highlighted by the recent mid-term elections. In times like these, artists play a vital role in facilitating important conversations through their creative expression. The artists of ZEEL are committed to this mission and have created work to address both the issues that divide us and, most importantly, how to bridge the divide in order to find common ground or even unity in the pursuit of Liberty. Their new pop-up exhibit “INDIVISIBLE: Expressions of Union and Divide” brings a truly unique perspective and conversation around this socio-political theme. The public is invited to attend the opening reception for this exhibit on Saturday December 1stfrom 5-10 pm in the historic Zang Building at 1553 Platte St, Unit 100 in Denver (facing the LoHi pedestrian bridge east platform). The show will be open for select hours Wednesdays through Sundays until Dec 15th, and possibly beyond. Visit facebook.com/ZeelArtistGroup for exact hours and updates.
This exhibit features an impressive and diverse group of artists from the Denver community including Dana Barak, Brett Fox, Eric Anderson, Carmen Richards, Ryan Sand, Michael Dowling, Terry Gardner, Mark Benson, Arturo Garcia, Gillian Sargeant, Cody Kuehl, Ndume Olatushani, Noah Travis Phillips, Karin Soderholmand Brett Matarazzo.
ZEEL is proud to partner with Unico Properties, who owns and develops buildings in Denver. They have generously leased the space at no-cost for the duration of this pop-up gallery and exhibit. Due to Denver’s rapid growth and development, artists have been pushed out of affordable spaces and struggle to find places to work and exhibit. ZEEL is not different in this regard, and thus is grateful for the opportunity to exhibit in this prime location and bring art back to the community. ZEEL would also like to thank the generous family sponsors who have contributed to make this show a reality.
The art collective, ZEEL: Awareness through Art started in December of 2016 in a temporary location in the Stanley Marketplace, in Aurora/Stapleton. They work together to create a unique space for community art related to social issues. Follow them on Facebook @ZeelArtistGroup.
