America’s Art Scenes Off the Beaten Track

Aspen, Colo.

Known For: This former silver-mining boomtown and ski resort is now a playground for the world’s top collectors, so the trading-post shops are steadily making way for blue-chip galleries like BaldwinMarianne Boesky and Casterline Goodman. Young upstart Skye Gallery just offered a plant-foraging hike with one of its artists.

Jody Guralnick’s fungi art grows at Skye Gallery in Aspen

“Aspen artist Jody Guralnick's collaborators on her latest body of work have been living in the local forests for thousands of years, others have made self-portraits for her.

Her collaborators on "The Fifth Kingdom," which runs through Sept. 20 at the Skye Gallery, are local fungi, mycelium and lichen.

It has the sense of working with a partner, Guralnick explained as she walked through the downtown Aspen gallery. Not just working with a blank piece of paper and a tube of paint, but finding something in nature to work with you."

Sculptor Ajax Axe imagines ‘Palace of the Beast’ at Skye Gallery in Aspen

“Ajax Axe's new show at the Skye Gallery invites you to cast a spell, to perform a ritual, to spin a wheel of fortune, to step inside of a sculpture and peer out from it. The interactive and playful 21-piece show uses fun and tongue-in-cheek magic as a sugar-coated hook while offering some fierce commentary on the stories we tell ourselves as individuals and as a society.

It makes you think about the relationship between humans and nature a lot, she said. And I don't feel as compelled to conform, I think, with social norms because I can always escape civilization here. Deconstructing the nature of human identity and belief, you could spend a lifetime on that, she said. People have."

Skye Gallery opens Saturday in Aspen

"Skye Weinglass is back on the corner of Cooper Avenue and Hunter Street in downtown Aspen.

The artist and gallerist, who managed the Lil' Boogie's kids clothing store for her father here for eight years, is opening the new Skye Gallery in the space this weekend.

"This space is so special to me," Weinglass said this week in the remodeled gallery.

Each of those galleries became a showcase for local and national artists while also serving as a sort of clubhouse for a youthful and creatively inclined segment of Aspen. Art classes and parties drew the kinds of crowds — huge in number and young-ish in age — rarely seen on the downtown gallery scene."

The Gallery is returning to Aspen for the winter

"When Skye Weinglass opened her gallery last winter in the building formerly occupied by her father's Boogie's Diner, a lively scene quickly grew around it.

Lines of young locals snaked down Cooper Avenue for art openings, packed houses rolled in for line-drawing classes and parties. The gallery, and the BLK MKT boutique it shared the space with, became a hub for a youthful and creatively inclined segment of Aspen.

And then it was gone."

"This spring, the building is planned to be torn down and redeveloped. But first, the next generation of Aspen’s small business owners are making their mark.

The vaulted glass ceiling in the old diner upstairs lets in the muted winter sunlight - it falls perfectly on the paintings, sculptures and photographs that adorn the walls of the gallery - a temporary display of work by local artists. The works were curated by Skye Weinglass, Boogie’s daughter."

The final, temporary tenant set to open in the Boogie’s space before it’s redeveloped is a retail, art gallery and event space collective that thrives on riding out the final days of a building before gentrification takes hold.

“Finding places that will soon be torn down, and getting in there after the last tenant has left and in that special zone where it’s taking too long for construction to start,” is how Rueben Sadowsky describes the group’s real estate strategy.


 

MESSENGER ASPEN - JanuarY 11, 2017

"Inspiration. Collaboration. Local. Culture. Global. Community… It’s quite hard to put into words what exactly the new concept space occupying the old Boogie’s will entail, but rather, it is more of an unique perspective that one has to see and feel to understand the multi-faceted project. Based in the infamous Boogie’s Store & Diner, the upstairs will feature a diverse collective gallery of emerging and established artists, curated by Skye Weinglass, a local artist and daughter of the infamous Leonard “Boogie” Weinglass. In the downstairs, the BLK MRKT returns for their Aspen 2.0 debut, dubbed a “mixed media concept store” featuring a collection of different creators and designers."
