Art Bazaar opens at DAVA December 5th

Start your holiday season at DAVA (Downtown Aurora Visual Arts) this year! Join us for our annual holiday show and sale of original art by DAVA youth and local artists. Youth at DAVA create special works of art year round and this is their contribution to the holiday spirit of giving. Proceeds from this exhibit support year round art programs for youth at DAVA.  DAVA is located at 1405 Florence Street, one block south of East Colfax Avenue in the Aurora Arts District. The exhibit opens with a reception from 4 pm to 7:30 pm on Friday December 5th, 2014. Works will be on display until January 9th, 2015.

DAVA is a wonderful destination for handmade holiday gifts. Following the theme of cultural connections, youth experimented with a wide range of materials and techniques to create original pottery, jewelry, wearable art, lamps, paintings, prints, baskets and ornaments. Many students used traditional craft techniques and patterns in their work. You will find treasures to keep or give away!

Guest artists contribute to the wide selection of artwork. The exhibit will include ambrotypes and cyanotypes by Ameet Patel reflecting his cultural heritage, original collage works by Elizabeth Truglio highlighting Colorado’s cultural landscapes, and original pendants by Nicole Banowetz. In addition, Kuru Street will contribute recycled plastic gift boxes and animal sculptures made out of flip flops rescued from the shores of South Africa.

The exhibit is free and open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday and by appointment. For more information, e-mail or call 303 367 5886.

DAVA is a nonprofit arts organization whose mission is to strengthen the community through the arts with youth as its primary focus. For more information about our programs, visit our new website at, or call DAVA at 303 367 5886.
