Denver Art Museum - Rocky Mountain Majesty

Hi Everyone!
Happy Wednesday!
Fred and I love going to the Denver Art Museum whenever we can. :)
Recently we went to enjoy the amazing & unique Becoming Van Gogh Show that is still on exhibit for one more week.
The Denver Art Museum will be open 24/7 this weekend for people wanting to see it before it leaves forever!
We missed all of the crowds back in October to see it and now we went around them again to see Rocky Mountain Majesty ~ The Paintings of Charles Partridge Adams

I loved all of the oil, watercolor and charcoal paintings that this unique and prolific artist shared with the world of scenes from my favorite places to visit!
I am so lucky that all of these places he painted are within driving distance from my house and I have visited many of the gorgeous peaks he loved to capture with his pigments.
"Charles Partridge Adams was a Colorado landscape painter active during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Rocky Mountain Majesty: The Paintings of Charles Partridge Adams marks the first time that Adams’ paintings will be displayed together at a major art museum; and the Denver Art Museum will be the sole venue for this important exhibition that highlights his greatest paintings of Colorado."
Fred & I were taken a back by the grandeur he captured in his oils as well as the fine details he delicately painted in his small watercolor paintings.
We cannot wait until February to return to see the installation of Georgia O'Keeffe in New Mexico. :)
"The exhibition brings to light a relatively unknown aspect of Georgia O’Keeffe’s art and thinking—her deep respect for the diverse and distinctive cultures of northern New Mexico. The exhibition features 53 O’Keeffe works including 15 rarely seen pictures of different Hopi katsina tihu, along with examples of these types of figures. Chronicling her artwork created in New Mexico, the exhibition explores O’Keeffe’s paintings of New Mexico’s Hispanic and Native American architecture, cultural objects, and her New Mexico landscapes."
What FUN things are you looking forward to doing and seeing this year?
Please leave us a note and let us know!
We cannot wait to hear all about them!
