"Strange Times"
Online Exhibit

April 1 - "whenever the world gets closer to normal"

Online Only - Ongoing Exhibit

We are all trying to cope in our own ways with having to stay at home. Many artists have found the time to do more painting, process old photos, try new processes, or experiment with new ideas. This exhibit has been created to showcase what they have been doing or what has inspired them during these "Strange Times".

Check back often. More works will be added daily until life gets back closer to normal.

Exploring Sunlight

March 3rd - TBD

Light is a key element in a successful and evocative piece of art. The sun is the source of all life. We are all familiar with beautiful images of sunrises and sunsets, but what about artwork that explores the varying and often dramatic effects of sunlight in an image or scene in unexpected and moving ways? 

R Gallery’s newest exhibit, Exploring Sunlight, invites us into the subtle, sublime or dramatic influence, implications, and effects of sunlight in a dynamic range of artwork, including photography, painting, and sculptural pieces. In each work, the light of the sun is a principal character or force and is employed and interpreted in diverse unique and intriguing ways.

The Exploring Sunlight show runs from March 3rd to TBD

Upcycled: Creative Reuse

March 17th - April 26th - POSTPONED

Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into new materials or products of better quality and environmental value. Upcycling encourages creativity and innovation as well as the wise use of resources.

R Gallery’s exhibit Upcycled: Creative Reuse displays artwork embodying the principles of upcycling in imaginative ways. The artwork interprets the theme of creative reuse by incorporating materials or elements that have had a previous life or purpose. The show includes wall art and free-standing works.

The Upcycled: Creative Reuse show opens March 17th and runs through April 26th.

Night Skies

March 31st - May 3rd - POSTPONED

R Gallery’s Spring National Exhibit

During the daytime, our skies are filled with light, clouds, and the vast blue atmosphere. However, when the sun goes down, everything changes. We get a glimpse of the universe beyond and see our world transform under the blanket of darkness.

Artists are invited to submit their original artwork for the Night Skies exhibit. We are looking for works that show the night sky in all it’s glory and mystery. 

R Gallery is a fine art gallery in downtown Boulder, Colorado. We normally focus exclusively on Colorado artists. For this exhibit we are opening up for a special nation-wide exhibit. We invite all artists across the country working in all styles in all mediums to join us for this exhibition.

The Night Skies show will run from March 31st through May 3rd, and is open to artists working in all mediums.
