This show is open to contemporary art of any medium, with an emphasis on work that challenges the margins of material, content, artistic process, and technology. The merits and definition of “contemporary” will be defined by the juror.

This year, Gwen Chanzit will jury our 2018 show, Curator Emerita of Modern Art and the Herbert Bayer Collection and Archive at the Denver Art Museum, and Professor of the Practice and Director of Museum Studies in Art History at the University of Denver.

Over her 36-plus years at the DAM, Dr. Chanzit organized more than 30 exhibitions. Some highlights were Figure to Field, Mark Rothko in the 1940s, Herbert Bayer: Berlin Graphics 1928-1938, Fracture: Cubism and After, Joan Miró: Instinct and Imagination, Starring Linda: A Trio of John DeAndrea Sculptures, Overthrown: Clay Without Limits, Herbert Bayer: New York and Aspen Paintings 1938-1974, and Abstract Expressionism from the Denver Art Museum.
Her major curatorial project, Women of Abstract Expressionism, opened at the Denver Art Museum in June 2016 and was on tour for a year. This traveling exhibition received vast praise in the national and international press. Its comprehensive catalogue is into a third printing.

Dr. Chanzit is regarded as the world expert on Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer; she has published several books highlighting Bayer’s wide-ranging artistic contributions. Chanzit holds a Ph.D. in art history and contributes to future generation of museum professionals as director of the art history graduate program’s concentration in museum studies at the University of Denver’s School of Art and Art History.

Edge Forced Out of Prism by Burdensome City of Denver Construction Regulations

(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!

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.
