Art Gallery at the Denver Performing Arts Complex (DPAC) says
Art Gallery at the DPAC at Backstage Coffee presents "Grounded in Flight” - a trip that explores modern day relics and ends up on the other side of the moon. The multimedia showcase features Daniel House Kelly, Chris Tidd, G Cody Day & Richard Hart! The show will display from May 15 – June 27.

Please join us for our Opening Reception May 15 (7:30 – 11 PM) Live music will be performed by Ethos Music with Francis Ryan & Nicky Tidd! Our full Art Bar will be open and Backstage Coffee's delectable hors d'oeuvres will be served!

Daniel House Kelly begins each piece by gathering found objects and materials that are familiar and used...things that are forgotten, fragile and flawed. By incorporating these objects with other multimedia, Kelly creates images that become personal and reflective for the viewer. Much like the flawed objects he finds and uses, his work presents the story of life - fragile, imperfect and temporary.

Chris Tidd creates paintings that reflect the subconscious experience and the effect it has on shaping the consciousness of humanity. Using imagery and content that are relatable to the human condition, Tidd helps to make sense of the complex emotions and reactions that our subconscious has to the world around us. Tidd will accompany his paintings with hand painted ball caps that further direct his audience to the impact of imagery on the subconscious.

G Cody Day paints the opposite of words, creating layers of unobstructed meaning through color, form and texture. Instead of painting the rock, the mountain, or the cloud, Day paints the relationship between them. By painting the energy he feels from a landscape, from a person or from an experience, Day invites the viewer to experience his abstract images without the obstruction of meaning or connotation.

Richard Hart lets his imagination emerge as he explores the creative design of ceramic space crafts. Starting with a vague idea of shapes, Hart allows each piece to take on a life and form of its own where the clay guides him as its architect. With each creation, Hart inspires the viewer to reclaim their zest of youth where anything and everything is possible.

Art Gallery at the DPAC is located within Backstage Coffee at the corner of Curtis and 14th streets at the entrance to the Denver Performing Arts Complex, directly across from the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, and conveniently located within walking distance of the Convention Center/Arts Complex light rail station.
