Artist Reception for Mike Teubner + Aaron Sager
October 14 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
It’s a double-header artist reception for photographers Mike Teubner and Aaron Sager on Thursday, October 14 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Rhyolite Gallery in downtown Castle Rock! Mike and Aaron are both first-time exhibitors at the gallery, and their photography is stunning. We will be enjoying adult beverages and snacks, and you’ll have the opportunity to meet Mike and Aaron and talk to them about their photography. And, as a bonus, we will be welcoming special musical guest SugarFoot back to rock the reception!
Over the last 30 years, Mike Teubner has lived in, worked in, and visited more than 50 countries (and counting). In doing so, he’s developed a visual appreciation for the world we live in — the people, places, things, and cultures that define the collective who and what we are. His take is that humans are observers by nature, and that is why we are drawn to photographs — they invoke memories and emotions in a way other media cannot. As a photographer, Mike is continually fascinated by the thought that everything he captures with a camera has never been exactly that way before, and never will be again.

Aaron Sager grew up in Mr. Roger’s neighborhood, known as Squirrel Hill, located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Other than Pittsburgh and Colorado, Aaron lived in Germany, (the former) Yugoslavia, the Republic of Korea, and Chicago. His photography training comes from his father, Ray, his uncle Robbie (Iron Horse Magazine), a lightroom class, and more than a few YouTube tutorials. The style of Aaron’s small urban photography strikes bright into black-and-whites. His pictures render a slighted skew to what we view during our daily walks and drives. The native Yunzer’s other artistic hobbies include hosting trivia and writing. His education includes a Master of Science in Finance from the University of Illinois and a B.A. in English from the University of Colorado. Aaron serves as a Command and General Staff Instructor in the Army Reserves, District 6 Historian for the American Legion, Board Member of the University of Colorado Army ROTC Alumni Association and he works in public finance.
