Works from Target and IKEA Counterpath, 7935 ...

Works from Target and IKEA Counterpath, 7935 East 14th Avenue February 24 through March 15 Opening Reception: Saturday, February 24, 7 to 10 p.m. Counterpath is hiding a fundraiser inside of a clever exhibit, by inviting friends of the gallery/event space to donate pieces of generic artwork bought at Target and IKEA, along with a 100-word explanation of the art and why it was chosen. The works will be priced at a 150 percent markup, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the original owner — minus a 50 percent contribution. It’s a win/win situation that also slyly makes a point about the state of the commercial art world. Donated works will be accepted right up until Saturday evening (e-mail first to make sure someone is there). Plus, bonus: Counterpath will concurrently be hosting free readings by poet Linda Norton and novelist/essayist John Cotter on the same evening. http://www.westword.com/arts/gallery-openings-and-art-exhibits-in-denver-february-21-to-24-10010518
