  • Bitfactory Gallery is Back: SALT Magazine

    "Bitfactory Gallery in Denver is opening back up with its postponed art exhibit Open Spaces now running from July 17 through September 10th.

  • Bitfactory Gallery reopens with postponed Open Spaces exhibit: Denver Post

    "The inspiration for Topher Straus’ art comes from decades of living in, and exploring Colorado and the Rocky Mountains, admiring tree-flooded valleys and silhouetted, mountain peak sunsets. His process includes modern technology and methods that result in a well-known landscape engulfed in contoured lines that superimpose the autogenous beauty of the original photograph. He takes recognizable, natural landscapes and converts them into a modern array of sharp lines — blending and contorting them up the slope of a mountain or shaping the soft, blurred lines of a waterfall. His zest for transcending established iconography makes for a unique combination of traditional vistas and modern style."

  • Topher Straus In Celebration of Our National Parks: Saatchi Art

    "Working out of his picturesque hometown of Golden, Colorado, it’s no wonder that Topher Straus finds inspiration in the natural world. In his recent series “The Parks,” Topher blends photography with digital painting to create colorful, large-scale renderings of the United States’ National Parks. Printed on aluminum and finished with high-gloss acrylic resin, Topher’s sweeping vistas bring the outdoors in. The unforgettably impactful series has been exhibited at the Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, New York; Bitfactory Gallery in Denver, Colorado; and the American Mountaineering Museum in Golden, Colorado. We spoke with the artist to learn more."

    The City of Littleton Fine Arts Board proudly presents the 54th Annual Own an Original art competition. Open to Colorado artists, the competition is for any art medium except photography.
