Toying with art at the William Havu Gallery

Posted By on Fri, May 6, 2011 at 1:24 PM

The William Havu Gallery in Denver is pretty consistent in its exhibitions — that is to say, they all kick ass. This place houses displays the work of Colorado's elite artists, like Emilio Lobato, Sushe Felix, Homare Ikeda and Laurel Swab.

As for thematic shows, the gallery keeps up with the museums with exhibits like its upcoming Toy Stories, which is a collection of art that uses toys, literally or thematically. This group show, which opens June 10, features paintings and sculpture by artists including: Swab, Esteban Blanco, Michael Brennan, Frances Lerner and others.

Here's a taste of Toy Stories:
