“VERISIMILITUDE, THE APPEARANCE OF BEING REAL” AT REPUBLIC PLAZA
2018’s First Art Exhibition at Republic Plaza Opens March 15 With Free Reception From 5:30-8 p.m.
DENVER, February 26, 2018 The first spring art exhibition at Republic Plaza in downtown Denver be on display in the Mile High City’s tallest sky scraper. The show, titled Verisimilitude, the appearance of being real, runs from March 15 through May 16 and features multiple artists in a wide range of styles within the idea of realism from photo-realism to realistic fantasy. The public is invited to a free opening reception on Thursday, March 15 from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. in the lobby at Republic Plaza.
Verisimilitude offers various artists’ portrayals of reality as well as a thought-provoking intertwining of what is seen and what is imagined. Two of the featured artists include Robert Gratiot and Jean Albus.
Gratiot is one of the best photo-realists in the region who has also dipped into the art of painterly photo-realism. Of his work, Gratiot says he “mostly deals with shiny surfaces, reflections, and often shows the viewer many planes of space all at once.”
Albus paints mesmerizing images that combine beautifully detailed landscapes with suspended clusters of items found in nature. She states, “My recent work has become an homage to the ineffable force that erodes all living beings, that returns me to the ground.”
