Helikon Gallery & Studios says
Please join us for the openings of two shows guest-curated by Sally Centigrade Gallery: 'Opiates for the Masses' in the main gallery and 'The New Masters of Dada' in Gallery 101.

'Opiates' is inspired by mural artists who create stunning public works of art on a massive scale. Over a dozen artists from around the country will create colossal paintings on rolled canvas or wood panels, with some works as large as 12 feet by 6 feet. Artists are creating work based on modern interpretations of 'opiates for the masses,' from fickle creature comforts and daily distractions, to the soul-soothing outlets and philosophies we lean upon.

Featured artists include Lauren YS, Amandalynn, Dirty Bandits, Hollis + Lana, Dread, Gamma, Robert Bowen, Sandra Fettingis, Kelly Ording, Jet Martinez, Lauren Napolitano, and Mark Penner-Howell.

'The New Masters of Dada' features paintings by Naomi Haverland. The Denver-based artist is well-known throughout the city and beyond for her large-scale chalk drawings and murals-- you may have seen her "My Name is Awsum" mural at 15th an California. For this show she presents a series of paintings in her signature bold and fun-loving style, exploring the silliness and spontaneity of childhood.

Entry to the exhibit is free and open to the public, with complimentary food and drink. The entire listing of works will be available online at following the opening.
