The Leon Affair: A Reading Series

Join us at Leon for our monthly series: The Leon Affair! This reading series is presented by Derrick Mund and Sommer Browning of Spring Gun Press. Each month these two talented writers and editors bring us a stellar line up of writers to present their works to you.

From our curators of the Leon Affair:

Green & Lewis & Drager & Cabrera & Svalina will be gracing us with their prose and poems and bodies and voices and pheremones this month!

Also, a rare Friday night Leon Affair (our spouse is back from a Nihilist Arby's Convention Saturday night. And even though they said, "I don't know, probably later, like half till dawn past dusk. The world is a bleak and meaningless endless pumping of Arby's cheddar sauce over the mound of nickle thin sliced proccessd beef we harbor as a relationship." It just seems safer to Affair on Friday.)

Nathan Abels Artist Reception of "Dust" at PACE

Join us at Parker Arts, Culture & Events Center in Parker, Colorado as we celebrate "Dust" by Nathan Abels. 

May 19th, 2016 6-8pm

Parker Arts Culture and Events Center
20000 Pikes Peak Avenue, Parker, CO 80138

"Dust" was inspired by Wonderbound's newest production about the Dust Bowl. Nathan has created an entirely new body of work centralized around the theme of Dust. Leon Gallery is proud to collaborate with Wonderbound and Rule Gallery to present this spectacular new show at Parker Arts, Culture & Events Center.

Check out this VIDEO created by Samuel Pike and Wonderbound to learn more about Nathan's process and his inspiration for this exhibition.
 

Artist Statement: My work explores the landscape and its inhabitants. The current series is based on the subject of dust. Some of the pieces in this series reference the historic Dust Bowl directly while others are more obscure. Obscurity itself is also one of the central themes of the recent works. Many of my images depict a paused narrative, such as headlights in the distance or standing at an overlook. What I am capturing in these paused moments is a sense of, as Keats wrote, “straining at particles of light in the midst of great darkness.”

Bio: Nathan Abels is an artist living and working in Evergreen, Colorado. His works typically take the form of paintings and drawings with an emphasis on landscape, atmosphere, and reduction. Nathan is represented by Rule Gallery in Denver, Colorado and Marfa, TX.

The Shadow Knows

Jaimie Gershen and Douglas Spencer

Exhibition: May 7th-June 4th, 2016

Opening Reception: May 7th, 2016  7pm - 11pm

 

Artist Statement:

You can hide down in the alley

With your hat pulled over your eye

You can wear a wig or moustache

Or any old disguise

Well, you can change your name and your address

Even change your style of clothes

But the Shadow knows

The Shadow knows

- The Coasters "The Shadow Knows" (1958)

Not all ghosts are meant to haunt and shadows never rest. We've built a home for the lightness and the darkness to get some R&R; an un-haunted house for the un-seen to rest in peace.

Leon Gallery will be transformed into a phantasmal installation by Douglas and Jaimie, creating an eidolic atmosphere where viewers are invited to witness the spectre of an old party, a bedroom full of mystery, or a mantle-piece from times gone past. 2 dimensional works full of mystery and intrigue by both artists will adorn the gallery walls. 

Jaimie Gershen works in ink, fabric, thread, gold leaf, and found photographs, matches, and book pages. Douglas Spencer works primarily using smoke on glass, gold, mirrors, paint, glow in the dark paint, glitter, and found photographs and objects. Both Jaimie and Douglas have had several pop-up shows in alternative gallery spaces across Colorado, but this is the first gallery exhibition for both artists, as well as their first time collaborating.

Bio:

Jaimie Gershen is an artist living in Denver with a background in printmaking, though her current focus is on embroidery, pen drawing, and found objects. In her art, Jaimie likes to play with matches and hide secret messages.

Douglas Spencer is an artist living in Denver working with a variety of mediums including layered glass, manipulating smoke, gold-leafing and sculpture. Douglas is also a master fine art framer, working for over 10 years in the custom framing industry.

Strings & Wood Presents: Cabin Project with Jen Korte and The Loss

Strings & Wood is proud to partner with Leon to bring you Portland, Oregon's The Cabin Project and Denver's own Jen Korte and the Loss. This is our first show of the year and it promises to be a special night. Spots are limited in the gallery so get your tix soon!

Doors at 7pm

 

The Cabin Project is an orchestral indie pop band from the Portland whose sound stems from anthemic choruses, three-part harmonies, octave pedals, and string sections. The songs are musically expansive, yet retain an intimacy similar to that of The National, Bon Iver, Feist, and Warpaint.
http://www.thecabinproject.com/

Jen Korte blew into Colorado from Austin, Texas in 2005. She came guided by the momentum of Americana and Caribbean rhythms, a prowess for distinctively intricate guitar lines, and the grit and power of a Western storm in her voice. Since forming her Denver-based band, The Loss, Korte has been mesmerizing audiences at festivals and concerts across Colorado, for almost a decade.

Opening Reception and Exhibition of: "Escapism" eScapes by Tim Schwartz

Escapism

eScapes by Tim Schwartz

Opening Reception: March 12th, 2016. 7-11pm

On Exhibition: March 12th-April 24th, 2016

 

Escapism explores the spaces between worlds. It asks us, as viewers, to place ourselves somewhere between the analogue and the digital, between the physical and the virtual, challenging us to consider the ways in which these seemingly disparate worlds interact and overlap.

As active participants in a booming technological society, we are constantly glued to screens. But the visual images we see on them are fleeting, transient, and often difficult to retain. ePaper screens, developed to imitate paper, display information that is generated through reflection rather than projection from the screen itself, allowing for a longer meditation on the content appearing on the screen, notably the text of books. The works presented here use ePaper technology to capture fleeting digital images and lock them into a physical form, freezing them in time. These are digital images in their native state, with no mode of translation — no print out — and yet they have materiality. The technology has been stripped down to its very core, to the point of losing its utility. The ability to change the images has been removed, leaving just raw screens with components exposed and the images embedded within them. The imagery on the screens implies a liminality, an enigmatic edge between physical reality and virtual reality by approximating landscapes, seascapes, and skyscapes. Mountains, oceans, and clouds, are the primary scenes, but they have been created using the standard 3D programs used for movies, advertising, and animation, but in ways the programs were never intended to operate. Although the images are experienced by the viewer in two dimensions, the digital information used to virtually create them is actually three dimensional, employing coordinates on x,y, and z planes

Lake Mary & The Ranch Family Band + Saskatoon + Eric Rich Ensemble Live at Leon

In honor of Jess Webb's solo exhibition, In Between Life & Death, we are proud to present a select performance by Lake Mary, Eric Rich Ensemble, and Saskatoon (featuring Jess Webb and Paul DeHaven). 

Doors 7:30p

Music: 8pm-11pm

Saskatoon:

Saskatoon is a musical collaboration between lovers and friends paul Dehaven and Jess Webb. They incorporate found sounds, looping,  Rhodes, guitar, cello and electronic shenanigans. There first two albums are ambient soundscapes.  This will be there first live show.

Lake Mary:

Lake Mary is not an island. Nor a lake. Lake Mary is a billowing white canopy in which friends crouch beneath and play their instruments for a season. Some come and go. Anchoring Lake Mary as a home to return to after some spring-time roaming. Others stay for a time. Make themselves cozy, and pick and play and drone and zone for a few revolutions under radical hospitality and pro-active selflessness".  -Ryan Hall (heligator records)

The Ranch Family Band consists of dream whales, gemstars, droners, shredders, & really good swimmers. We came together in the mountains of Colorado and began to create sounds around what it means to be in community, human, animal, cosmic, and otherwise, and to also spend as much time swimming together as we can. I can't tell you how big my heart is knowing we get to get to reunion for this special night. 

We invite you to partake in all of these with us. 
Especially (in no particular order) music, swims, and slapshots

Eric Rich Ensemble: 

Eric Rich is a self-taught pianist and contemporary composer with punk roots in Salt Lake City. Born and raised in the mountains, he draws inspiration from wilderness, anarchism, and meaningful human interaction. First turned on to minimalism through Steve Reich and post-rock via Godspeed You! Black Emperor at 20 years old, Eric Rich's music has evolved to incorporate elements reminiscent of composers Nils Frahm and Peter Broderick, and ensembles like Austin-based Balmorhea. 

The Eric Rich Ensemble is a fluid organism, changing in size and scope to fit diverse compositions and venues, with instrumentation including strings, winds, vibraphone and marimba. The ensemble has performed in a public library, a piano showroom, a repurposed church, and many welcoming living rooms.

Eric Rich is joined on this tour by world traveling violist Sarah Custen (formerly toured with Will Sartain); Salt-Lake based percussionist Matt Laser (current drummer of Tavaputs); and Denver-based guitarist Chaz Prymek, also known for his work as Lake Mary.

The Art of War

New Paintings by JOLT

Exhibition:December 12th, 2015-Jan 24th, 2016

Opening Reception: December 12th, 2015 7-11pm

Artist Statement:

The only way to win the war with ones self and to process that struggle through art is with strategy. The ability to strategize expressing your deepest emotions and gain a new understanding from that process yet walk away the victor of your own personal battle can only begin with not only knowledge of self, but knowledge of your craft. I battle against myself and the system that I was born into. I battle with wild style letters and their symbolic warfare against any standardization enforced by the rules of the alphabet and its oppressive nature by arming those letters with arrows, shields, and by manipulating the angles. I defend myself with symbolic masks that sometimes mirror the adversary opposing me, represent my emotions and look to human ancestry for the necessary symbology to face spiritual dilemmas. I’m often the casualty of the wars in which I choose to engage. Strategy is always at the forefront of that engagement, the ability to express deep emotional turmoil and advance ones technical ability while conquering all fears and challenges is what brings the war into art and the strategy of The Art of War into my work.

It’s about power. The work is candy coated with vibrant, sweet and sour color.

Opening Reception and Exhibition of "NOBODY DESERVES YOU THE WAY THAT I DO", new works by Jackie Barry

  • Leon Art Gallery

Join us at Leon on June 13th, 7:00pm - 11:00 pm for the Opening Reception of NOBODY DESERVES YOU THE WAY THAT I DO; new works by Jackie Barry. 

On Exhibition: June 13th - July 11th, 2015

This is Jackie Barry's first solo show in Denver. As she describes, "this grandiose statement echoes a sentiment I witness in my media-driven generation: a generation that thrives off of larger-than-life, often misguided declarations of adoration.
It is my experience that this is a product of the denial of self-love. The result is a perpetual projection of lofty promises and false affectations toward other people exhibiting the ways in which we wish to love ourselves.
This is about the struggle of selfish vs. selfless love."
