Great Divide Releases Third Edition of Denver Pale Ale Artist SeriesWe brought you a peek back in early March, and now this from Great Divide:

New can artwork from local artist Rachel Jablonski to be unveiled in June

DENVER, CO -  June 7, 2018 - Great Divide Brewing Company is releasing the third edition of the Denver Pale Ale Artist series with artwork created by Denver-based artist and illustrator Rachel Jablonski. Available nationwide, the Denver Pale Ale Artist Series is an ode to the city the brewery has called home since its inception 24 years ago. Great Divide will celebrate the launch with a party on Thursday, June 28 featuring Jablonski’s artwork, beer, and an opportunity to meet the artist.

The Denver Pale Ale series was created in 2016 as a way to commemorate the brewery’s expansion into the RiNo Art District alongside the release of Denver Pale Ale in cans. Each year the brewery works with a different local artist to design a concept that represents what the city of Denver means to him or her.

Jablonski looked to the Denver Pale Ale can as a canvas to showcase her love for the city in a very Denver way — with beer.

“I view the Denver Pale Ale Artist series as an iconic love letter to the city, and I knew I wanted to be a part of it,” said Jablonski. “It's awesome Great Divide gives local artists an opportunity to pay homage to their home. I'm very proud and honored to be chosen as the third artist in the series.”

Jablonski’s work includes hand-drawn pen and ink illustrations that have been featured in The Guardian and Nautilus. The illustrator often draws upon inspiration from pop culture, symmetry, and nature and utilizes these elements to create a window into a world that can challenge the viewer's sense of reality. For this year’s Denver Pale Ale can design, Jablonski used frames and vignettes to showcase iconic imagery from the mile high city.

“By framing a guy drinking beer in a hammock and looking out onto the Denver skyline, you get a snapshot of a popular Denver perspective on every can,” said Jablonski. “Meanwhile, the framed icons of a hiker, wolf, deer, and the state capitol hang like family portraits and colors of green, orange and blue bring the artwork together.”

Denver Pale Ale Launch Party:

Celebrate local art, beer, and the vibrant city of Denver at Great Divide’s Denver Pale Ale Artist Series No.3 Launch Party on Thursday, June 28 from 6 - 9 p.m. at Helikon Gallery & Studios (3675 Wynkoop Street Denver, CO 80216).
