Adam Gildar of Gildar Gallery hands over his curatorial powers to Los Angeleno gallerist Charlie James for Takeover, a fresh summer show featuring artists we're not used to seeing in these parts. Some are from James's own stable, others have international creed and one, Adam Milner, is the lone Denverite, though he's preparing to pack up for grad school in the fall. Bonus: While you're in the neighborhood, catch Dimensions, a group 3-D sculpture pop-up lowbrow show curated by Plastic Chapel's Dea Webb, next door at IndyInk.
