ART - FOOD - LIVE MUSIC, All for a GOOD cause... Join Project HARTwork and La Cour Art Bistro & Cabaret for a First Friday art opening on October 5th, featuring local and international talent. The event takes place at La Cour at 1643 S. Broadway, Denver, CO just south of I-25 from 7 – 10 pm. La Cour, the brainchild of Janet Proth and her partner Joseph Monley, is one of Denver’s most unique hidden gems. La Cour brings to mind a Parisian traditional bistro with live jazz every evening and new works of art rotating in every month. Over 40 French wines are available to choose from, along with soups, sauces, homemade French bread, pastries and ice cream, traditional French appetizers and entrees including braised beef short ribs, Cornish game hen, wild caught salmon and vegetarian gnocchi. La Cour strives to use only locally sourced products in addition to specialty items imported from France and Europe. Janet, a native of Connecticut, lived most of her adult life in France providing language coaching to a French pharmaceutical company. She moved here with Joseph, who is a Denver native, four years ago. They became aware that the personal charm of individually owned cafes, bistros and restaurants that Paris is famous for is absent in Denver. They decided to open one themselves and bring with it the experience of art, which, Janet explained, “impacts people in significant ways,” though neither had any experience in the restaurant business. “Approaching my sixties, this was quite a risk because of my age and my gender,” Janet explained, “we now have a formula with art, food, jazz and European charm that people enjoy and bring their friends to experience.” The Julie Monley Jazz Trio will be performing their original and eclectic repertoire, as well as music from Antonio Carlos Jobin, Stevie Wonder and Miles Davis. Come meet local painters Margy Foertsch and Gary Haney, along with photographer Yuni Groff. Margy uses water-based mixed media as a means of expression, focusing on color, texture and movement in her paintings of landscapes that range from representational to the abstract. She hopes to use her passion for art to help raise awareness about “the silent epidemic of human trafficking happening right here in our own backyard.” Work from Project HARTwork’s international team that will be on display throughout October includes: Nigerian artist Silas Adelanke Adeoye who paints small, distinct dots of color in the pointillism style in telling stories of Nigerian culture and traditions. Witness to the smuggling of children into his country on a daily basis to work as cheap labor, Silas says “My goal is to present paintings that will promote love and freedom, condemning man’s injustice to man.” Ba Djbril Ngawa represents Mauritania, the last country on earth to abolish slavery, in 1981. He shares Project HARTwork’s belief that art is the antithesis of slavery: “My art is freedom of creation, expression and an invitation to a permanent and endless journey of learning depicting, discovering the invisible and trying to understand the unknown, the mystic.” From Hanoi, Viet Nam, Duc and Nhung represent one of the top countries in Asia for trafficking victims into Europe and the United States. The couple owns a gallery in Hanoi where they display their vibrant work. “Our art work is about life in Vietnam, landscapes and people. The Vietnamese people try very hard to live and save life after so many wars,” says Nhung, “with my art, I hope to eliminate the sorrow in the world caused by human trafficking.”  For more information about this event click here...
