Artists Reception: Thurs Feb 7, 5-8p

Andrew Speer’s new series “Works on Paper” is a re-invention of his own style. Intentionally challenging his long-time processes and formats, a new, exciting abstract art series has emerged. Laced with layers of patterns, shapes and organic marks, the paintings have both depth and immediacy. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Andrew earned his undergraduate and MFA degrees at the University of Kentucky. He completed graduate studies at the University of New York and began a teaching career in New York, California and Kentucky. In 1990, he moved to Colorado to begin a 25-year career as the chair of the art department at Metro State University. His work has been featured in numerous shows, has received national acclaim and is in many private collections. SEE HIS WORK HERE.
By contrast, Leslie Jorgensen’s “Bike Paintings” are a move from small to large. The series began last year as a set of small exploratory pieces and has grown in size and format to include some major paintings. Described as colorful and kinetic, Jorgensen’s bike paintings reflect a thriving bicycle culture in Denver. Leslie is a contemporary painter working from her studios in Salida and in Denver’s River North (RiNo) Art District. Her work can be seen in galleries in Salida, Louisville, CO and Jackson, WY. www.lesliejorgensen.com
