Visions West Contemporary is pleased to announce the 2nd annual group exhibition Mountain Standard Time. This show will span across all Visions West Contemporary locations in two states and have a virtual companion to access from home. Mountain Standard Time will embody art in dialogue with the West, from environmental, historical, and cultural viewpoints that will explore the many facets of the West as a space in the American psyche. The exhibition will be in two parts, meaning that throughout the exhibition we will be switching out pieces to include more variety of pieces and artists. In keeping with the mission of Visions West Contemporary, Mountain Standard Time brings contemporary art from across the United States and brings it to the forefront of the art community of the Rocky Mountains. The range of artwork will be vast, from paintings to works on paper to sculpture.

Mountain Drag II

DENVER | 09.10.2020 - 10.21.2020 |

Artists: June Glasson

June Glasson is a native New Yorker who became fascinated by the idea and cultural interpretations of the Western “Mountain Man” after transplanting to Wyoming. Her first series of Mountain Drag was created in Wyoming on paper with white backgrounds and presents women dressed in trapper gear turning traditional Western gender roles on their heads. Her newest series, Mountain Drag II, finds Glasson’s work being created back in her New York studio and her paintings continuing to explore the ideas of the “Mountain Men” of the West now on panels with oil paint and intense backgrounds of brightly saturated colors.

DENVER | 10.29.2020 - 12.05.2020 |

Artists: Adonna Khare

Adonna Khare is an American master carbon-pencil artist. Her style has been compared to the photo-realistic illustrations of Audubon, but the surreal worlds and strange inhabitants she creates can only spring from her imagination. Khare’s life-size works possess the scope of a painting, but with enough detail and realism to give viewers the impression they can step through the paper and into Adonna’s worlds. Though she stays steadfast to her chosen mediums, pencil and paper, her work spans from 8” x 11” to massive murals covering entire walls. She says of her process, “I draw how one might sculpt,” and the final artworks contain far more layers of pencil than the surface belies. A review of her in-progress pieces reveal hints of skeleton, almost as if she is drawing her fictional subjects from the inside out.

DENVER | 10.29.2020 - 12.05.2020 |

Artists: Rachel Denny

We surround ourselves with elements from nature in the form of manicured lawns, sculpted trees, and our domesticated companions. We bend the natural world to our tastes and create a comfortable place from which to appreciate its unpredictable beauty. My sculptures weave every day objects with the animal form to create new layers of information. I use tactile materials to create beautiful yet absurd creatures that are half wild yet domesticated by human intervention. My work approaches topics of femininity, domesticity, and our perceived place in nature. My animals are transformed by the texture and colors of human detritus into poetic creatures that reflect our conflicted desire for control over our environment and our search for a feral beauty. We sometimes move through this life at a frantic pace, and my creatures are a reflection of the ebb and flow of our actions.

DENVER | 12.11.2020 - 01.22.2021 |

Artists: Jennifer Nehrbass

Landscape paintings once used to romanticize and to politicize notions of manifest destiny, are now recreated. The landscape images are created through the use of various locations combined to become idealized vistas. They are moments in time captured for posterity. In the time of climate crises these idealized landscapes may present to future viewers a skewed version of past environments.
