Events & Exhibits


Energeia (Energy)

January 21st - March 1st

R Gallery’s exhibit 'Energeia (Energy)’ explores themes and expressions of energy in art. The word energy derives from the Ancient Greek: ἐνέργεια, or energeia, which literally translates to 'activity, operation'. In contrast to the modern definition of energy, energeia was a qualitative philosophical concept that included cosmic forces, workmanship, supernatural action, happiness, and pleasure. Through the use of form, composition, color, and motion, the work in this exhibit conveys the energy that physically or emotionally influences our world. The show opens January 21 and can be viewed through March 1.

 


Showcase: Monochrome

February 4th - March 15th

Monochrome is defined as involving or producing visual images in a single color or in varying tones of a single color (such as gray).

By limiting the visual palette to one color, monochromatic artwork explores shades and gradients, composition and line and can range from hyper-realism to nuanced subtlety and abstraction.

R Gallery invites artists to submit their original artwork for the “Showcase: Monochrome” exhibit to be held at R Gallery in Boulder, Colorado. Artwork should be primarily monochromatic with a little room for creative interpretation. The show opens February 4th and can be viewed through March 15.

 


Exploring Sunlight

March 3rd - March 29th

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 how about artwork that explores the varying and sometimes dramatic effects of sunlight in an image or scene in unexpected and moving ways? 

R Gallery invites artists to submit their original artwork for the “Exploring Sunlight” exhibit with these ideas in mind. We are looking for work that explores the impact, implications, and effects of sunlight beyond more typical representations of the rising and setting sun - work that examines the light of the sun as a principal character or force in the piece. Of course, sunsets and sunrise images may be accepted. However, we are more intrigued by pieces that are dynamically inventive and unique in their interpretation and use of the light of the sun.

The show runs from March 3 - March 29, and is open to Colorado artists working in all mediums.

Night Skies

March 31st - May 3rd

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 show runs from March 31 - May 3, and is open to artists working in all mediums.
