Recently there have been signs of life in the old Temple Emmanuel building at 24th and Curtis streets, a Frank Edbrooke structure that's stood vacant and boarded-up for years after serving as home to three consecutive Jewish congregations. And while the Temple, as it's now called, is already being occupied by artists in newly created studio spaces, as well as such organizations as the Denver Zine Library and Dylan Scholinski's Sent(a)Mental Studios, it's also still a work-in-progress, bringing vitality to the Curtis Park neighborhood.

It's not unusual for Plus Gallery to throw a group show in the summer, but Ivar Zeile says this year's offering, Super Human, is his biggest multi-artist exhibition ever, with work from more than 25 local, national and even international artists. More than just a collection of portraits, Super Human is a sleek study in 21st-century trends in portraiture. Here's a sneak peek at some of that work; see the rest when the show opens on Thursday, July 10.

Sheila Hydle embarked on her new venture after the death of her father. "I wanted to use my inheritance to start something I'm passionate about," she explains. "I decided to do something different. Glass-cutting was the first thing that I felt passionate about. If my dad was here, I would still be in corporate America and unhappy."

But instead, she opened Glassateria, a studio that allows customers to become artists by working on their own glass-fusion project. "I love helping people feel creative and providing a place for them to let go of logic," Hydle says. "You can manipulate glass, but you can't control it."
