Heroes of Zero

| February 23, 2015 | Parties

The Party
Gallery 1949 threw a grand opening party Dec. 23 that attracted more than 170 people to the new space to view the exhibit Zero in Aspen, curated by Andrea Crane and Caroline Schmidt-Barnett from New York-based RambleOnProjects.

The Players
Trish Backal, Barbi Benton, Patricia Eltinge, Mike Ferrel, Bob Gersh, Christine Aubale Gerschel

The Scene
Art dealers, patrons and friends of the new gallery braved copious amounts of snow to see the highly anticipated show, which highlighted works from the experimental midcentury German movement Zero. In addition to pieces from core members Otto Piene, Heinz Mack and G√ľnther Uecker, works from other like-minded artists were on display. Servers from the Caribou Club handed out flutes of Champagne and glasses of white wine to the celebratory crowd. –Photos by Red Mountain Productions
