15th Street Gallery represents many museum-track contemporary artists and a few carefully selected emerging artists with exceptional vision and depth.
Most gallery artists have work included in the permanent collections of art museums across the US. Our art gallery in Boulder hosts several openings each year, often including a talk by the featured artist. It is particularly important to us that we bring artists to Boulder from across the country. Additionally, we are pleased to support and advance the careers of a few local Colorado artists.
A common theme we hear from featured artists who have come to Boulder for our openings is that the focus during the opening is almost totally on the art. Sure, people enjoy some good Colorado wine and imported cheese, but by and large, those in attendance really look at the art.
They talk about the art and they ask questions about the art. It is then that we feel our gallery mission has been accomplished: to generate interest and passion for art and to see something they may not have seen before.
The exhibitions are constantly changing. But if you stop by, you’ll always see a wide range of media including oil paintings, lithographs, woodcuts, hybrid collages and wood sculptures.
