In a translucent reality, reality and fantasy overlap; both are present, but they cannot be easily distinguished from one another. Instead, they morph back and forth, and potentially create a dynamic that allows humanity to recreate itself, bringing ideas together to get a clearer world-view. The six artists in this exhibition are striving for a sense of enlightenment by shining through the veil to express their truths and mysteries. The featured artists in this exhibition utilize traditional and alternative photographic methods, in conjunction with Denver’s Month of Photography.
Walker Fine Art Gallery, 300 West 11th Ave, #A

The Runnin' of the Green will be in-person for 2021! You will notice some changes this year, including a return to the event's roots in Wash Park.
