Sweet Talk w/ Dirty Teeth

Brooke Sargent

First Friday was a huge success here at Buffalo Exchange this month. We had the pleasure of hosting the work of Boulder fine artist Sarah Colbert, and Matthew Reyer, up and coming local fashion powerhouse behind the label Black/Tuesday. Their respective works perfectly complemented each other in simplicity and minimalism, and Deep Eddy Vodka topped the night off with cocktails. We had a chance to sit down and chat with the artists about their respective displays.

Matthew Reyer and Sarah Colbert.

Sarah Colbert got her artistic start at age twelve, and her strong background in craft work has begun to play a major part in her work as of late.  Initially more of a 2D artist and painter, the works of Sheila Pepe and Ron Nagle in particular were significant in her switch to 3D sculptures.  This series is all about "creating an interesting [relationship] between soft materials and hard materials", or creating a play on how we aesthetically perceive certain things.  Organic materials such as dirt, moss, fur, and even dryer lint are handles in a very intricate and intentional way, combined in various ways with wood, ceramic, and other hard materials gives the delicate, miniature sculptures an excitingly eclectic and creature-like feel.  Ms. Colbert says that she would like to start moving more into installation pieces, "playing more with the space the art is in rather than the pieces themselves."  As for inspiration outside of her are of expertise? "Bjork is one of my favorite musicians, she's an artist in a lot of different ways that I'm not...she's very true to herself, and her fashion sense is amazing."  Sarah's work will be in our gallery for the month of November, and you can see more of her work on her website sarah-colbert.com.

Matthew Reyer created Black/Tuesday, a very minimal high fashion men's line. He lists Daniel Patrick, Stampd, and Rick Owens as his major aesthetic influences, as well as a hint of Goth. Reyer's minimal lifestyle in general also has a lot of influence on the work he produces. Black/Tuesday blends the simplicity of both east and west coast style; black and white basics with a touch of androgyny makes the label stand out among the Denver fashion scene.  Steadbrook, men's streetwear boutique, is on Reyer's list of local favorites.

Kork-Ease POP Boutique at The Denver Buffalo Exchange

buffalo exchange

The Kork-Ease story begins over a half century ago in Brooklyn, NY, where the original cork wedge sandal was born. The soft, rich leathers and lightweight cork heel were the perfect choice for women seeking chic, comfortable style. 

As time went on, the natural simplicity and organic design of the sandals was right in step with the free -flowing, earthy fashion of the late sixties. In the 1970's, Kork-Ease took center stage during the height of the disco era-with the iconic platform wedge that would become symbolic of the era. 

Today, Kork-Ease is forever immortalized in fashion history, with the original AVA wedge as one of only 25 shoes on display in the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute's Landmark Shoe Collection. 

The collection that you will see on display this month at the POP Boutique inside the Denver Buffalo Exchange will celebrate the core spirit of the original design, infused with a few fresh, new elements-reflecting the perfect fusion of retro and modern.
