EDGE Gallery has 5 openings for new, full member artists. As one of Denver’s preeminent alternative galleries, we are looking for serious experimental and contemporary artists interested in pushing the boundaries of their medium and/or subject matter with a coherent body of work.
Edge is looking for a new, affordable gallery space–$1.00 sf, 1200-1500 sq ft. Prefer 40 West Arts District Locations, near Pirate and Next. Suggestions and leads are welcome from friends and patrons of Edge and supporters of alternative arts.
(Aug 7, 2017) Well, the city of Denver did it again. First, we were priced out of our 25+ years on Navajo Street because of gentrification, and now we have been asked to move by the owners of Prism Workspaces–not that they don’t want us, but because the city’s absurd requirements have overburdened them and us. We can’t thank Prism enough for the support they have given us, we will miss the connection we’ve had with them.
We are looking for a space in Lakewood’s 40West Art District hopefully near Pirate, and Next. Lakewood wants alternative art, stay tuned!

Stories with Earth and Water – Rachael Amos
My attention swings from personal landscape to landscape in the myths of native Americans, but always earth and water are part of the story. This is due partly to the earthy nature of the pastel medium, which attracts me back again and again to its gritty contact with paper, and partly I think, due to the way my consciousness of nature has been raised by the reading I’ve done in the Land Library book club. It would be pushing it to say It’s an ecoconsciousness, but it’s much more like that than previously.
Illumination : Funky Industrial Lighting – Maggie Stewart and Michael Cousins
Married team Maggie Stewart and Michael Cousins create funky industrial lighting instruments through the process of salvaging, repurposing, unraveling and plugging it in!
Katherine Johnson – No Solid Ground
So much of what once seemed unchanging in life is changing more quickly than ever. In this time of personal, societal and environmental turmoil, I paint from a place of groundlessness where nothing is certain. Using color more intensely or not; defining shapes with lines or running lines alone; looking to previous context or jumping into a new way that defines itself. How does it feel to let go in this way? The act of working with whatever comes brings solace where it is much needed in order to live with the uncertainty of an evolving world.
id-Dania Pettus The non-pictorial image gives intrinsic (belonging naturally) substance to my images. The innate impulses of my mark making on the negative and the addition of collage scraps symbolize my thoughts and visions. My self-critical conscience struggles to find my place. The results of the mark making are the mediations between my conscious and subconscious.
Edge Gallery is pleased to announce our 3rd Annual Open Entry Community show, “Open at the Edge,” featuring work from the Denver art community and beyond. Edge is dedicated to highlighting artists outside the domain of commercial art venues. Our annual Open Entry exhibition allows us to showcase the creative variety in our surrounding community. Please join us for the Opening Reception Friday, August 19th, from 6-10 p.m.
Water: A Reflection – Mala Setaram-Wolfe
Water: A Reflection is a video installation that addresses water as an element of culture, history and controversy. The work is a melange of eurasian cultural images and enviromentalism. As our global cultural struggles with increasing corporate ownership of this precious resource, we must reflect on the impact this will have on us and our future.
Lawn & Garden – Hans Wolfe
Immersion –Bennett Onsager
Conduit tubing, wires, and circuitry are seamlessly connected to human anatomy. Onsager explores a theme about combining biomorphic and mechanical sides of humanity. His work features stunning realism achieved only using the ceramic firing process. Achieving such affects is one of the hardest things to do in ceramics and Onsager demonstrates great skill and detail work in the medium.
