I have always been amazed by how a picture can tell a story without any words. I found great beauty could be made when the viewer is forced to ask questions. I create questions in my paintings by depicting people who exist in unfamiliar landscapes. It is my belief that people look within their own life and experience to give the painting they are look at meaning. I try to create landscapes that seem familiar to most but where no one can name the exact place. Read More.
Born in Canada in 1984, I was lucky enough to spend the first part of my life growing up in my mother’s art gallery. I moved to Colorado with my mom and sister in the fall of 1996. I had had success in the past painting the sky, but I was worried about the art falling into the whole cliché category of “pretty sunsets.” Read More.

Painting is an exploration for Margaret Neumann. Her paintings define a space that hovers between two and three dimensions.

Gretchen Marie Schaefer was born in Denver, Colorado and received a bachelor’s degree in English and Visual Arts from Regis University. She is a current artist-in-residence at RedLine, Denver. and works at the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless. Gretchen's work evokes organisms and growth through indefinable figures. Similarities between macro and micro, internal and external allow her work to investigate relationship and difference. These relationships have moments of unease as the delicate, strange globs of shinny mass reference internal organs. Graceful, fragile, organic growth and ridged, mechanic systems co-occur and awkwardly balance. Organic objects made from synthetic materials heighten a sense of difference and these objects become specimens to be examined. Gretchen explores the tension that a thing can be strange, gross, awkward, while at the same time beautiful and astounding. Gretchen strives to communicate this through various media and processes including printmaking, film, painting, drawing and installation. Read More.
Beau Carey received his MFA in painting from the University of New Mexico in 2010. He has been painting for 10 years. His landscape based work focuses on liminal spaces; spaces that look at the ambiguous line between what is manmade and what is natural; spaces that lie between as they transition between one thing to the next, from farmland to a housing development, from a housing development to a vacant lot, from open space to a designated wilderness.

I seem to be a verb. I keep “doing, making, thinking, and painting”. I change. I make things and I make paintings. (A sculptor I worked with once said, “You treat a painting as a thing.”) Each work is a stepping-stone to the next. The exploration is not linear. I try to not know as much as to know. I feel that what is omitted is the rest of the truth. I deal with the possibility of meaning. I point for you to look. Read More.
