INFLUENCE June 21 - August 10, 2013
Opening Reception: Friday, June 21 5-9pm
INFLUENCE is the inaugural exhibit of MAI WYN FINE ART, the new combined gallery and studio space of artist/owner Mai Wyn Schantz.
“Nothing in my life has been more exciting than taking on this new space. As I set about planning my first exhibition, I couldn’t help but think of all the artists who have inspired me over the years; my first show at Mai Wyn Fine Art is a tribute to them. I sent out letters and am thrilled that all nine artists accepted my invitation to include one work in this exciting first show INFLUENCE. The artists are teachers, friends, peers, mentors and heroes, whose work is known locally, nationally, and internationally. Some are from here in Denver; some come from the Midwest where I grew up; some are painters and some are sculptors. Whether by personal relationship, shared inspiration, academic influence, or just plain admiration, these nine individuals are all part of my art identity. I am incredibly honored and humbled to showcase such diverse and amazing talent together in one show.”

So great to share this wonderful review from Michael Paglia of the Westword for INFLUENCE. The show also made Artlook's list of must-see summer shows!
