Leon Gallery’s directors are in no rush to reopen

Denverite | 05/07/2020

Retail and other businesses that were shuttered during Denver’s coronavirus stay-at-home will start to ease open this weekend as the city transitions to safer-at-home.

Retail is part of their business, so Leon Gallery’s directors believe they can open. But Eric Nord and Eric Dallimore are in no rush. They’re keeping the focus on an installation series that can be viewed from outside the closed gallery and an online performance art festival they developed during the stay-at-home orders. It will be June before they start inviting art lovers back into the nonprofit art and event space at 1112 E. 17th Ave. in City Park West.

JAIMIE GERSHEN – ART –

04/05/2019 | Cicada Wheels

I had a joint show at LEON Gallery with my friend Doug Spencer, and it was my first time collaborating with another visual artist. It was an amazing shift in perspective for me to scheme and execute ideas with another person and I learned a lot about myself as an individual and as an artist.
