RETRO / Activ
An art studio event that combines the past, present, and future. From Sept 24 to Oct 11, accomplished Colorado artist Peter Illig will host a unique event in the
Mai Wyn Fine Art gallery space on Santa Fe Drive in Denver, CO. Both a working studio with art works in progress and a special showing of past art works, the back studio area in the gallery will become an active, energized workshop of ideas, painting, critical writing, image-making, planning, and discussion.
Known for his large figurative paintings and drawings, Peter Illig has been developing three new series of works in his studio, unseen by the public. His paintings can be viewed as metaphors for relationships between men and women, our darker unconscious motives, for the heroic and dramatic in everyday life and urban experience, and our searches for meaning. He mines the past for provocative images that have relevancy in contemporary life.
You may visit this studio space in the coming weeks to meet the artist and see what’s being created. You might be surprised.
This pop-up open studio will run from Sept 24 to Oct 11, 2014.
Visiting times are during regular gallery hours, Wed thru Sat 12-6 pm. And anytime by appointment. Peter Illig 303 913 0973
Mai Wyn Fine Art is in the Santa Fe Arts District at 744 Santa Fe Dr, Denver, CO.
