Colorado Springs Art Gallery
We are a local downtown Colorado Springs art gallery
The Modbo is honored to present October’s First Friday: “blu” romanodaniel, showcasing dynamic pieces by local artist Daniel Romano. The opening reception is from 5:00 pm until midnight on Friday, October 4th. The show runs through Friday, October 25th, with a free artist talk that evening at 5:30 pm. In addition to the opening reception, the gallery is open on Friday evenings from 4-7 pm or by appointment. The Modbo is located in the Arts Alley in downtown Colorado Springs at 17C E. Bijou. Find the stretch of Bijou that is between Cascade and Tejon, and go south down the alley. Street parking is available, but The Modbo recommends the lot on Cascade just north of Bijou, which is only $1 after 3 pm. The Modbo can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, themodbo.com, or 633-4240. This collection includes sculpture, sculptural relief on painted panels, and the popular EYEBOX series.

The remaining pieces in the collection simply intrigue the senses or are depictions of anatomy, and include a large, fresh sculpture which Romano has been developing since 2012. The show “blu” romanodaniel is intriguing, thought-provoking, current, and fresh. Daniel Romano is a self-taught Colorado based artist who works in fabricated metal sculpture, relief, and painting.

NOW that’s what I call art
This art is a wonderful example of art from this period of art production. Some say its the best of those arts while others reserve judgement. First painted by world renowned art guy “Arty” it has since been aged like fine wine and had a fancy frame put around it to enhance its aesthetic assault on your taste.

Put together as a tribute for the great “hair de jur” of 1890 this piece features exquisite use of water color, crayon color, and sun color, truly displaying the mastery of the artist and his wide range of talents. The authors identity remains a mystery to this day but some say it was the work of a poor farm boy in the Mississippi Delta who learned to read by way of twig bundling.
