Today’s featured event:

See “Black, White and Color,” a two-artist show, at JRB Art at the Elms, 2810 N Walker in the Paseo Arts District.

The gallery’s June exhibit features black-and-white photographs by internationally acclaimed photographer Connie Imboden and plein air landscapes by Colorado artist Karl Brenner.

The exhibit showcases Imboden’s “straight shot” unclothed human figures reflected in mirrors and/or submerged in water. Imboden’s photographs are in the permanent collections of many museums, including The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Baltimore Museum of Art, The National Museum of American Art, The Bibiotheque Nationales in Paris, France, Ludwig Museum in Cologne, Germany, as well as many other public and private collections throughout Europe and the Americas.

Living and painting landscapes in and around Durango, Colorado has occupied Brenner’s life since he retired from surgical practice to paint full time. Brenner says in a news release, “Capturing the special color harmonies, the interesting perspectives in nature, and the changing seasons keep drawing me back outdoors to paint on site.” “Despite the gusts of wind which blow down my easel and the freezing temperatures which occasionally render my oil paint too stiff to use,” he says he paints plein air because he constantly seeks “that rare moment when everything comes together and a worthwhile heartfelt declaration happens.”

JRB Art at the Elms is open 10 a.m. to 6 pm. Monday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. The exhibit is on view through June 28.
