Denver Icon DD LaRue and artist Janis Decker Moore expose their Mystical nature

Denver Icon DD LaRue and artist Janis Decker Moore will collectively expose their new works “Reflections of a Mystical Nature” from August 6th thru August 29th , 2009 at RedShift Framing, 2266 Broadway, Denver, CO 80205; (303) 293-2991. Receptions will take place on Thursday, August 6th, 6 p.m.-9 p.m. and transition to First Friday, August 7th, 6 p.m.–8 p.m.  

DD LaRue, initially recognized by her flamingo art on dumpsters, has continued to create award-winning art, i.e. her multi-media works have, for example, taken First Place in the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, and the prestigious Art Show at the Dog Show in Wichita, KS. Several of DD’s dog sculptures are permanent acquisitions of the Dog Art Museum, Wichita, KS, and the AKC Museum of the Dog, St. Louis, MO, Kaiser Permante Hospitals, and Children’s Hospitals throughout the United States.

August 6-29th, DD will be spotlighting her spectacular glass mirror mosaic tiled/sculpted animals. Recently she received a Juror’s Award for her “Shiny Goose” at the Curtis Arts in Humanities Center, Greenwood Village, CO.

Janis Decker Moore will be presenting her colorfully brilliant paintings and drawings of nature. A student of Harold A. Wolfinbarger, Jr., (student of Frank Lloyd Wright), she often uses the Pointillism method to execute her mystical fish/water drawings. Janis shares, “A near death experience and recovery time allowed me to open my eyes and journey into three dimensional art where I was able to transform the natural world into fantasy”.

DD LaRue and Janis Decker Moore are focused, small business entrepreneurs. Art and small business are vital to economic and inspirational expansion. Janis, employed by the City and County of Denver, often cites the affirmation Mayor Hickenlooper stated in his January 20, 2005 launch of the “Business Assistance Center”:

“Healthy, expanding small businesses are a fundamental part of strong, sustainable and prosperous communities……………………”

Support the small business entrepreneur. Support artists. Attend art shows.  Be it on a dumpster, sculpture or canvas, may art prosper and be sustainable.
