Will have to go see this....kind of tired of the same old.... and in this economy, if I spend some $ on a show, I want to see something new and fresh. SWL
You gotta love when blowhards like Beck open their mouths to pontificate about how a film like Leonard's is "unbelievably wrong on just about every fact" yet when pressed for explanation and refutation he can give nothing but opinion and assumption. He truly is the blind leading the blind. But what's most scary is he's paid millions to do it.
"Similar to Andrew Wyeth's hyperrealism, Pérez's almost disturbing level of clarity hints at such a metaphysical world."?
This person is being paid to review art?
Dear Edie, Are you really comparing this work to Thomas Kinkade's Landscapes?
Please take another look at his Mountain, Seascape, City Scene, etc. landscapes in
the Plein Air and French Impressionism and Studio paintings.
I would buy a Thomas Kinkade over these anytime! Thank you, God Bless!
The instincts of mating go back to a time before we talked. A million or more years?? Romantic, comes from Rom, it means sophisticated by what, two thousand years ago??. The sexual part of our existence, by today's standards has shrunk to a small percentage of our drives. This in fact means that those of us who lack enough libido will not procreate and our genes will die out. This reminds me of a friend who values his wife, his Mercedes and his high rise apartment in Mississauga. He is not the only friend of mine who has that kind of life. A person who seeks a mate is an amateur at that. It is little wonder that in the past parents decided who their offspring should mate with, marry? Most of the people writing about things learned to write but often not to understand what they are writing about. The yearning of a missed opportunity, is mostly for what one imagined was that and a fleeting smile is not much of a valued missed opportunity. Our culture teaches us more wrong decisions than right ones. Wisdom is not taught in school but an inherited talent few of us will ever experience except by meeting such a person and I am sure it will be a large, if not devastating, surprise every time.
What an inspiration ~ Dillon is an amazing example of the sheer potential that lies within one young person! We need to support and encourage someone so obviously gifted.
Many will be watching and listening for more to come ~ Many thanks to his proud papa for sharing this with us!

Wow, the new site looks just like the Onion. I wonder if you'll be as dedicated to truthful reporting as they are now that you've got this new fancy look.
Welcome to the Indy’s new site, which we’ve revamped in many ways to make as streamlined and user-friendly as possible. But during this transition, any comments that posted between Wednesday and Friday will not appear until Monday, as we move all the data.
All postings sent now will appear as usual, with the most recent comments on the home page.
You’ll also see constant changes and revisions on the home page each day, as we focus on events coming up that day and highlight different stories. You can check out full menus from the list of topics (News, Music, Film, Visual Arts, etc.) across the top. You can also see the electronic version of our latest issue by clicking on "Digital Issue."
We hope you enjoy the improvements, and we appreciate any feedback you might have. Thanks.

Great article! I have seen a few shows and it is totaly worth going! love the Simpich family
Very interesting its cool that we have something so unique to colorado springs.
I remember going to the Simpiches store when I was younger and was always fascinated by the wonderful craftsmanship. Its great to hear about the Simpiches again and I love that the Independent wrote an article about them so people can see how talented they are! A wonderfully written article!
I am shocked, an inspiring article on the continuation of a family held craft that has world-wide appeal right in Colorado Springs. Talk about edgy for the Indy, no skeleton or spray paint art expelled from the expatriated, upper class youth we find hawking their wares locally. It is refreshing to hear about a local artist with worldwide appeal whose notoriety is not gained from shock and awe but through skill.
