Elusive: Works by Andrew Roberts-Gray
February 22 – May 14
Included with Gardens’ admission
Artist Andrew Roberts-Gray combines formal abstraction, the painted landscape and areas of unpainted canvas to create dynamic works that defy traditional genre. His work hovers between painterly abstraction and sculptural space, peppered with symbolic elements.
April 28 – September 24
Calder: Monumental is a survey of iconic American artist Alexander Calder’s bold sculptures. It is the first outdoor show of Calder’s work in the west and the first solo outdoor exhibition in the U.S. in more than a decade. True to his practice, Calder’s monumental works are made of industrial materials and bolted steel plates, and the works exhibited in Calder: Monumental are no exception. In some cases, a mobile structure sways at the top of the sculpture to create a “standing mobile.” In addition to the outdoor sculptures, one indoor mobile in monumental scale is presented in the Boettcher Memorial Center, on loan from the Denver Art Museum. The featured abstract and figurative sculptures span from 1956–1976.
