Welcome to MANGELSEN – Images of Nature Gallery in Denver, Colorado
MANGELSEN – Images of Nature Gallery opened in Denver's prestigious Cherry Creek North February 14, 2007. This charming, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood is home to over 320 galleries, boutiques, restaurants and spas, and is often recognized among Denver's best amenities due to its delightful ambiance and Denver's largest collection of independently owned shops. With over 40 restaurants and cafes, Cherry Creek North is the place to be and be seen! For the savvy shopper, art lover, or 'foodie' begging for a thrill... Cherry Creek North is a must.
The sixteen blocks of Cherry Creek North are located just five minutes from downtown Denver where you will find the Denver Center for Performing Arts, the Colorado History Museum, Denver Botanic Gardens, the Denver Art Museum, Elitch Gardens (the only downtown amusement park in the country) and major league baseball, basketball, football, hockey and soccer teams. And, of course, the nearby 14,000 foot high Rocky Mountain playground is just 30 minutes west.
We invite you into the gallery where you can, at your leisure, view the Colorado Rocky Mountain's White River National Forest, the Raggeds Wilderness Area, and the Yampa River... as well as experience the many wild places of the natural world as seen through the lens of legendary photographer, Thomas D. Mangelsen.
