Since opening in 2008, RedLine Contemporary Art Center has held an annual exhibition featuring work by artists in the residency program. 2017 will launch with Nice Work If You Can Get It featuring RedLine Resident Artists and curated by Daisy McGowan – Gallery Director & Curator for the Gallery of Contemporary Art, Colorado Springs. This exhibit will explore the reality of “making it” as an artist demands hard work, space and funding.
RedLIne is excited to host the 20th Anniversary Exhibitions of Artnauts, an art collective that has enlisted over 300 artists to serve as goodwill ambassadors who acknowledge and support victims of oppression worldwide. Their creativity has generated over 230 exhibitions on five continents. Founder, Dr. George Rivera, explains, “As long as inhumanity exists throughout the world, the Artnauts will not cease to try to change the world through the power of art.”
Opening Reception: July 9, 2016 at 6PM
Perhaps the oldest and most basic art act, drawing remains relevant despite significant changes in technology and the nature of art. The definition of drawing is blurry and often serves as a basis for study in most every other medium. Drawing is rarely is given the same attention as other disciplines within visual art, but is regularly a root for other artistic practices, as well as being a valid realm on its own.
Drawing Never Dies will survey the range of drawing taking place today. Approaches may span from minimal to maximal, meticulous to messy, monumental to miniature. From commonplace and traditional materials such as graphite and pens on paper, to drawing on the surface of the earth, to artists working with technology such as 3d pen drawings in space or forms intended for experience on the screen; we are interested in a broad/expansive survey of drawing now. We invite artists who consider their work from the vantage of drawing to submit to this juried exhibition.
RedLine is pleased to announce Donald Fodness (artist & curator) and Daisy McGowan (Director & Chief Curator of Gallery of Contemporary Art, Colorado Springs).

ArtCorps Mentoring is a year-long mentorship between community artists and youth at Whittier School, and a six week pilot mentorship at Manual High School. Both are under-resourced neighborhood schools in Five Points. Through a one-on-one mentorship, students explore the arts and design a social engagement project related to their lives and communities. In collaboration with their mentor, students act as socially engaged artists and learn to approach life with the inquiring mind of an artist.
