Pedro Barrios and Jaime Molina recently completed their mural located at 34th & Larimer. As you can see from the pictures not even the tiniest details were left out and the result brings both artists’ work alive on the street. Friend and local artist Joseph Martinez stopped by and added a geometric pattern to the mix to top it off. If you are on the north side of town make the trip to check it out – you won’t be disappointed! Thanks to Pedro, Jaime and Joseph for their hard work and to New Belgium Brewery for the support.
Every Here Has A There
Black Book Gallery is pleased to announce “Every Here Has A There”, new works by Colorado-based artist John Fellows, in what will be his second solo exhibition at the gallery. Fellows’ signature “contemporary folk” style weaves together layers of found paper, graphic block prints and handwritten text to create an old time, hands-on feel. The artist collects a variety of found paper, maps and books dating from the 1880’s to the present to create unique linoleum carving collages that while at the very base reflect his personal experiences, are more like a brief glimpse into another person’s story.
For this new body of work, John once again draws inspiration from his recent travels to the Swiss and French Alps, Sayulita and Baja, Mexico as well as the mountains of his home state of Colorado. Grizzled mountain men, salty sailors, stormy seas and rugged mountains layered on used nautical charts and topographic maps draw the viewer in and hopefully trigger memories of their own past travels and experiences.
John Fellows currently lives and works in Denver, Colorado. He travels constantly and spends much of his time in the outdoors, both of which impact his work. John has shown work in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, The Netherlands, and around the US. Recently his worked has been used on t-shirts for Element Skateboards, Vail Resorts and Shaun White for Target, wine labels, and featured on the cover of BombFlow magazine.

Horne and his partner, Will Suitts, at Black Book Gallery, have been working tirelessly to put together an amazing group of both national and international artists; many of whom are creating original works specifically for this show. These artists are leading the way in supporting LHSF’s “Get On the List” campaign, as well as LHSF’s Children’s Cancer Center in Tanzania. The night will be filled with art, music, fun, and a bone marrow drive which will allow you to register with the Get On the List Campaign. Black Book Gallery hopes to make a donation of $10K from original artwork sales that will help fund a Doctor at the Love Hope Strength Children’s Cancer Center in Tanzania.
About Love Hope Strength Foundation:
Love Hope Strength Foundation, is a music-centric charity dedicated to saving the lives of people with cancer, one concert at a time. LHSF was founded in 2007 by leukemia survivors Mike Peters (of the Welsh rock band The Alarm) and James Chippendale (president of CSI Entertainment). As the world’s leading rock-and-roll cancer foundation, LHSF primarily raises its funds through musical pilgrimages to majestic sites like Mt. Everest, Mt. Fuji and Machu Picchu. Through its partnership with DKMS (the world’s largest marrow registry), they head up bone marrow drives at concerts and major musical events like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and Austin City Limits. With more than 400 drives conducted, LHSF has added over 32,000 people to the national marrow database and found over 500 matches for patients in need of bone marrow transplants.

For the month of March we are going in a new direction with a great photography exhibit. Long time friend of the gallery Mark Sink has been working the past several years to create a city wide photography exhibition known as Month of Photography (MOP). A selection of art galleries and museums in Denver will contribute photography exhibits and we are excited to be a part of it.
“Unforeseen Coexistence” features three talented photographers with an individual focus on subject matter with an unforeseen outcome of similar emotional and physical moments captured in time.

The artists in this show are all friends from different areas of the world. They
have background’s in design, and all their work is graphical in nature but
the output and style is drastically different. “Happy Journey” is a random name
that came about over beers when checking out Hari’s collection of Indian
souvenirs in his wallet. It captures the different paths the
artists have taken in terms of life and art combined with their strong mutual
appreciation of each other – This show is an intersection of their happy
