First Friday: Matt Verges
For the month of January, Balefire Goods welcomes local artist Matt Verges for an exhibit of his unique illustrations.
Matt Verges has been making art as long as he can remember and has been working professionally in the art industry for most of his adult life. Originally from a small river town in Missouri, he moved to Colorado in the early 2000’s and began creating art for international bands, clothing labels, films, children’s books and much more. He has pride in his ability to work in a diverse range of styles, but his most prevalent themes are the strangeness of nature, the duality of life and death, and dark humor. When he’s not hunched over a drawing tablet, you can find him skateboarding, rock climbing, or sword fighting a two-year-old.
Join us for drinks, snacks, and a wonderful evening celebrating local art. In addition to our opening, Olde Town Arvada is a great destination for First Friday with openings at Vouna, The Cereal Box, Hunter Bay Coffee Roasters, Gallery 1874, Light Rail Gallery, Grand Lake Brewing, Arvada Ceramic Arts Guild, New Image, and more.
