With meticulous draftsmanship, Bill Amundson infuses social commentary and satire in portraits and in images of Middle America. He captures the absurdities and eccentricities of life in witty and humorous visual critiques. In works such as Teen Excavation andNervous Patriot – both in the Denver Art Museum collection – he addresses existential predicaments, from typical teenage angst to grown-up political anxieties. Amundson’s work has been widely exhibited and is in many public and private collections.

Yves Saint Laurent leaves on July 8, 2012

Yoohoo, all fashionistas…The 40 Year Retrospective of Yves Saint Laurent’s exquisite works are still in Denver, don’t miss it. You have until July 8th.

Yes, it’s definitely kudos for Denver and its selection as one of the premier stops on this 3-city exhibition that has traveled to Madrid, Paris and Denver.  Rarely does one get to see the up-close and personal handiwork that Yves Saint Laurent incorporated into his classic and renaissance-esque fashions. You will swill over the tuxedo wall. He designed the first formal suit for women. How did we survive before Yves, I ask? Most admirers of his couture designs have viewed them only in Neimans, Saks, books or vintage magazine fashion shoots.  It really is a must see for any one who can get to Denver. My advice ride, drive, fly, however you can get here. Honestly,  no excuse for Denverites. It is a rare glimpse of fine art from the creative mind of a skillful thoughtful artist seen through his timeless designs. This is a body of work that has put Denver on the map and it is an honor for all Colorado.
