Denver Photo Art is arguably one of the best photo galleries in town. The huge space has bi-monthly rotations of photographs by some of the best artists that Denver has to offer. Mostly large photographs take visitors to places near and far – from Colorado landscapes to African savannas and Italian urban displays.
One of the featured artists, Armen Malikian, exhibits his stunning outdoors photos here. Whether urban skylines, mountain outlines, or sandy dunes, Malikian captures viewers with interesting angles and details. His unique viewpoints draw in and magnetize, so people spend more time exploring the photos rather than just glazing over them. His dramatic skies are magnificent, and have more depth than you'd think could be captured with the lens of a camera.
Russ Shugart’s images capture the enigmatic magnificence of nature and bring this feeling to viewers as if they were there. Shugart catches subtle moments in any season and all times of the day. His dreamy pictures demonstrate the majestic beauty of environment, coupled with mystery and artistic intent.
Brent Stone of Axcent Photography is passionate about automobiles. He is drawn to older cars and trucks—particularly their hood ornaments. Because of his unique blend of nature and “Golden Age” automobiles, his pictures have a true Western American vibe.
Artists Pat and Emi Kanan exhibit tasteful European architecture. This couple has photographed around the globe for more than 30 years. Tranquil, well-composed photographs invite visitors to examine the splendor of countless European cities.
Recently, the DPA gallery presented a collaborative exhibition “Fire! Colorado Under Siege” on view through November 27, 2012. The exhibition depicts recent Colorado wildfires and is dedicated to those who helped battle the disaster, the firefighters. The powerful photographs are distressing, yet you can find a subtle beauty in the terror.
Dynamic photographs balance on the edge of photojournalism and art. The selection of 21 aerial and ground pictures by photographers John Wark, Aaron Ontiveroz, Richard Saxon, and Steve Smith will benefit the Colorado Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
This impressive gallery also features John Fiedler, a renowned Colorado photographer. The photographer’s passion for Colorado is apparent in his nationally-acclaimed scenic photographs. He is also a publisher, whose book, Colorado: 1870 – 2000, is a best-seller. Not only that, but Fielder is a preservationist. His photos have affected related legislation and earned him the Sierra Club's Ansel Adams Award in 1993, and the Aldo Leopold Foundation’s first Achievement Award in 2011. Visitors have a chance to see more than 100 of Fiedler’s photographs.
Furthermore, this fine art photography gallery often hosts events, lectures, and unsurprisingly, participates in Santa Fe First Friday Art Walk.
