Best Of Award
Best Abstract Trio – 2013
Amy Metier, Michael Clapper and Emilio Lobato
William Havu brought together three of the state’s top abstract artists last spring. The main event was Amy Metier. Metier begins with an actual subject, and then, using her expressive brushwork, turns it into an abstract composition; though more representational than usual for her, these paintings were still very much a part of her classic style. Meanwhile, the floors at Havu were filled with small, simple sculptures based on organic shapes by Michael Clapper. One of Clapper’s greatest strengths is the way he combines different materials. Finishing off the trio were Emilio Lobato’s recent wall relief sculptures made of found materials.
Now proudly representing painter Kevin Sloan
We are pleased to announce the Denver Art Museum has once again revealed William Havu Gallery artist Rick Dula‘s 18 x 32 foot mural A moment in Time: Here.
A Moment in Time: Here
February 10, 2013 – April 14, 2013 | Hamilton Building – Level 2 | Included in general admission
Denver-based painter Rick Dula, who photographed the Hamilton Building throughout its construction, created hyper-realist painting A Moment in Time: Here, in 2009. It appears to peel back the interior walls of the building to expose its steel girders and underpinnings, and reveals the angular skeleton of the structure, which opened in 2006. Popular with museum members and volunteers, the artwork originally was on view in 2009 and 2010 in the exhibition Embrace!
We are proudly welcome emerging Colorado painter, Laura Truit to our stable of artists.
