Wall Assembled Variation
Group exhibition titled More Than Friends at Ironton Gallery and Studios
December 12, 2014 - January 10, 2015
More Than Friends presents the work of 23 local artists who share studio space at TANK Studios in South Denver. TANK Studios was founded in January of 2013 by nine local artists with the aim of creating a strong and sustainable community for working artists at all career levels. Today, just one year later, TANK has grown to host 23 artists working in a variety of media. The work shown here is a cross-section of the studio practices present at TANK, ranging from painting to digital media, collage to collaborative performance, sculpture to photography and video. While the subject matter, conceptual concerns, and media differ, the works reflect the open critical dialog that TANK fosters. TANK is more than a building, it is a community. And the artists of TANK are, in fact, more than friends; they are colleagues, supporters, collaborators, and instigators.
