Named the Art Space of 2009 by the Denver Post, the decade-old Plus+Gallery, located in an old paint factory north of downtown, revels in the shock of the new. Local work is the focus, be it Tsehai Johnson’s strange arranged squiggles of porcelain and silicone, Devon Moore’s elegant metalwork, or Riva Sweetrocket’s Magritte-like canvases in soft pastel; owner Ivan Zeile also curates an Experimental and New Media Series for film projects and performance pieces. Of course, exhibitions aren’t all Plus hosts (hence the name); salons, wine tastings, and concerts make it a prime gathering spot for the Denver arts community as well.
