Join us for open work sessions in RedLine’s Community Studio on the last Sunday of the month, 1:30-4:30PM. The Denver Papier Mache Club's mission is as serious as it is silly: to offer time and space for artists to gather and experiment with papier mache while having fun.
Place is often defined and described in relationship to geographic and social attributes. In Place In Line, place emerges through use of lines as a form of mark making that both captures and translates placeness or placelessness. Within these works, repetition of line is utilized to demarcate and shape the moments within and between physical, biographical and abstract locations to capture or reflect our perception of the places around us.
Join RedLine resident artist Tya Anthony and heartfelt creative Kalina Ross for a radical mid-year vision quest as we focus on good intentions, goals and objectives for the rest of this year by creating a vision board!
