LivAspen – Local treasures for the Gatsby and Grimey…..

LivAspen Art


I went to the “Local’s Visual” last night at LivAspen on the “walking mall” in downtown Aspen. It was a great Fall evening of cool breezes, cobblestone, and artistic chatter. The people filled the gallery and were enjoying the beverages, food, artists, and their pieces. The studio is a great addition to the environment. Near the new Red Onion, they had music flowing through the event with family, friends, collectors, local’s, and critics. It was a blessed evening with great vibes from those home from Burningman to those talking about their time shares in the Hampton’s. Eclectic Aspen never comes up short for the Gatsby!!
You can contact them and also should follow them on Facebook. 
Their outlook on the Future is Bright like the Sunrise over Aspen. 
“Sleep” 120″x73″, Inkjet on Vinyl, AP, $5000
Cooper Holowski

Cooper Holowski, of Detroit, brought this piece for the gallery. Great piece for any office or large room. “I endeavor to relate the narrative of machines and investigate the unseen structures that support global economy and enables us to comfortably autopilot through our daily routines, faith, and pensions intact,” He puts it so elegantly and in-tune. 
“Megatron”, 42″x72″, Acrylic on Double Canvas, 2011, $5000
Mark Brendon Smith

Mark Brendon Smith, of New Zealand, takes people on a “visual journey combining graphics, layers of canvas, ancient cutting techniques, and color.” He’s touch on art is great for interaction. The 3-D effect of the canvas and also the colors that are used. I have seen many of his pieces in town and at his studio. His eye on modern art and contemporary touches is exquisite. 
“Dimensional Mind Trap” 06-2010, 33 1/2″x27 1/2″, Cut paper and
plexi-glass with Oak Frame, $4500
Mike Milota
Mike Milota, of Omaha, NE, says, “my art was an escape from my daily stress. I spend hours lost in each piece.” Quantumola is his art-form. It is formed by multiple layer of cuts and escapes into a release of life and art. Mike is a great friend, yoga instructor, and father to 3. He hand is steady and his soul is soft. 
The back room was filled with food & drinks for all.
Great turn out for this event and Great art!!!
More great exhibits from the show

“The Distance of Existaence”, 2011, Concrete casts with acid stains, $400/each (3 total)
Skye Weinglass
Skye Weinglass, of Aspen, shows us great use of materials and also the “voyage and the landscape in which it takes place. My work is a narrative pertaining to my mental and physical progression.” Her artwork is vast in mediums and also in inspiration. It was great to see her home from Burningman and to hear of the extremely soulful journey of her and the tribe. 
Art is always in the arsenal!!!!!
