It may be a long haul for most art fans, but for Denver residents, JOSH KEYES' current show at LIMITED ADDICTION gallery is a must-see affair before it closes its doors this Saturday, November 16th. Hailing from Oakland, CA, this young Washington State-bred artist creates compelling photorealistic and sharply satirical vignettes exploring the issues plaguing the natural world, most notably habitat loss, pollution, overpopulation, and the general evils of human infringement. Serious degrees from the Art Institute of Chicago and Yale attest to his formidable rendering chops which must be witnessed in person to be fully appreciated—a trait that is in short supply in much of today's fine art world.
