Edge Continues Hunt for New Gallery Space

Edge continues our search for a new home.  In the booming Denver commercial rental market we, and other co-op galleries in general, are finding new challenges in finding a space that will be accessible to our patrons, fans and art lovers.

In the meantime, our members continue to meet and produce  thought-provoking contemporary and alternative works of art.


Artist Peer Critiques – Facilitated by Edge Member Faith Williams

This is an open group of artists, creators, and anyone seeking feedback on their ideas, meeting every Third Thursday in Denver, 7:00-9:00pm.

Location this Month (March 16, 2017):

 Art Students League
200 Grant St, Denver

We have Studio 106 reserved for the group. You can access the studio on the main floor (North East corner). The front desk will be able to direct you to the room if needed.

What to Bring:

  • Artwork, sketches, ideas, drafts, images, etc
  • Questions for the group
  • Resources
  • Bring snacks to share

Edge recommends the website, One GoodEye, for reviews and listings of art exhibitions around Denver. Check it out!


If you are interested in applying to our Gallery as a full member artist, please contact  Mala Setaram-Wolfe.


As we continue our search for a new home, our members hope to see you around the  Denver art scene and encourage everyone to get out there and support the arts and check out all the great art Denver has to offer!

Opening Reception: Friday, November 11th, 6-10 pm

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.

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.

September 15 – October 9, 2016 : Dania Pettus, Jane Davis & Susan Berkley

Opening Reception – Friday, September 16,  6-10pm

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.

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

Bennett

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.

 

June 23 – July 17: Stephen Shugart & Dennis Pippen

Stephen
Patterns of Consciousness — Stephen Shugart
Found objects and scrap material are transformed into light works investigating patterns of our daily existence in a disposable society. The works play with visual perception and are meditations on our individual and collective consciousness. For Shugart, working with light refers to quantum physics, chaos theory and ancient learnings about the nature of reality; light is a metaphor for consciousness and the horizonless, diaphanous interior light of the mind when eyes are closed.

Dennis
Where Fun Lives – Dennis Pippen
Pop art paintings using vivid colors and optical effects. Featuring amusing rodeo themes and satirical gun culture. Large mash – up paintings with pop culture images incorporating 3-D objects. Brightly colored sculptures with geometric shapes on mannequin bodies.
