As we’ve nearly cleared our way through mud season, spring’s coming to a close, making way for all the excitement that spells summertime in the Rockies. Taking advantage of beautiful conditions and settings outside of town, many locals have hit the road for weekend respites. A group of fun-seeking dads orchestrated their third annual fathers/sons and daughters’ trip on the Colorado River to Ruby Horsethief Canyons recently. Weddings in Utah and Arizona are documented below with brides, grooms and ring bearers from the Roaring Fork Valley. Denver beckons for those interested in its burgeoning restaurant scene (Beast + Bottle on Capitol Hill is one of my new faves) to its acclaimed art museums and galleries. On view now through July 16 is an exhibit not to be missed titled “Shade: Clyfford Still/Mark Bradford,” a collaborative presentation at both the Denver Art Museum and Clyfford Still Museum. Paintings by contemporary American artist Mark Bradford are on view at the Denver Art Musuem with canvases by Clyfford Still featured alongside them. Counterpart to this is an exhibition of Still’s work at CSM that was curated by Bradford, who will represent the U.S. at the Venice Bicentennial this year.
