Seen In Passing: Photographs by Chuck Forsman

Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until May 25 @ Denver Art Museum


Boulder photographer and painter Chuck Forsman is like the Ansel Adams of the ordinary, and it's worked very well for him, as in the series Western Rider, for which he snapped plain but skillful landscapes from a car window, or Walking Magpie, where he observed with the lens while walking his dog. Forsman eschews fancy equipment in creating these photographs, though some of them take on an otherworldly sheen. “Some people think they have to go to exotic places or the far ends of the earth to find excitement,” Forsman says of his low-key style. “I’ve always liked the idea of finding interest at home; just walking around the block can be an experience.”

Forty black-and-white images from both bodies of work make up Seen in Passing: Photographs by Chuck Forsman, a new exhibit that opens today at the Denver Art Museum, 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway, and runs through the end of May. The show also includes three landscape paintings by Forsman.

Think of it as a contemporary, down-to-earth and contrasting companion to the heavily impressionistic landscape exhibition (Nature as Muse) on view as part of the DAM's Passport to Paris program. Seen in Passing is included in the regular museum admission of $3 to $13. For details, go to denverartmuseum.org or call 720-865-5000.
