The art of buying, blended
Two of the four owners of Svper Ordinary, a self-described “well-curated and fun” art gallery and retail space in The Source at 3350 Brighton Blvd., are Denver natives; the other two arrived the usual way (i.e., they came for the mountains and snowboarding, and never left). The original husband/wife business launched at 31st and Larimer three years ago, and then expanded their ownership team and re-branded last November when they were invited to join other elite vendors to occupy The Source.
Being in Denver and now being in one of the hottest new redevelopments has been a great fit, says co-owner Tran Wills. The gallery/shop consciously defies occupying a traditional niche, opting instead for a range of shows featuring veteran artists along with trendy up-and-comers and students. The owners’ tastes embrace street art, graphic design, and photography across a spectrum including painting and prints, sculpture and fashion. Their fans and customer base are equally diverse, and The Source is a must-see draw for visitors.
Their space even blends its gallery and retail seamlessly, shifting and interspersing displays with each show. Like so much about Svper Ordinary, its philosophy, location and happy success just seems to work.
