Roland Bernier feted at Spark and Walker

The Denver Post - - LIFE&CULTURE -

The artist Roland Bernier, who died in June, was one of Den­ver’s most re­spected tal­ents. He had a way with words, as they say, ex­plor­ing let­ters as both sym­bols of mean­ing and as sim­ple shapes to be ex­plored. Bernier’s skill was to strip ob­jects down to their essence and re­con­fig­ure them in ways that were to­tally new, or “to make some­thing so sim­ple say so much,” as critic Mary Voelz Chandler once wrote in the Rocky Moun­tain News. Spark Gallery (900 Santa Fe Drive; spark­gallery.com) and Walker Fine Art (300 W. 11th Ave.; walk­erfin­eart.com) are cel­e­brat­ing his ac­com­plish­ments with ret­ro­spec­tives. Free.
