"Our collection is a very personal one, shaped very much by the places we’ve lived: Swaziland, South Africa, India, Egypt and the UK. We collect art because we love it and the key question we ask when considering a purchase is, “do we want to live with that piece?” To us the point of owning art is that we get the privilege of living with it, every day and everywhere in our home.
Some pieces have a particular meaning to us because the context from which they come is one that we experienced on a daily basis when we lived in a place—the concepts of space and privacy in India; the urban landscape of Johannesburg.
Some come from artists with whom we have established close friendships, and so the context of those works is even deeper for us, informed by our relationships, by spending time with the artists in their homes and studios.
Some are just, to our eyes, beautiful; and while concept is meaningful and important, so is care and craft.
Not every piece you’ll see has a story, but many of them do, and those stories comprise much of the last twenty years of our lives."
-Fred Glick and Donna Bryson

RedLine is a nationally-recognized venue for contemporary art exhibitions. Along with its robust exhibition schedule, RedLine provides studios, exhibition space, and resources for emerging contemporary artists. RedLine partners/collaborates with/selects approximately 20-25 artists at any given time who remain “in residence” for a two year fellowship. Artists receive studio space and mentoring from up to four accomplished artists per year. Interactivity is a core element at RedLine: artists engage in healthy art criticism and vibrant debate as each develops their practice. It is a place for artists to explore, to create, and to interact with other artists and visitors alike.
In addition to the residency program, RedLine is working to establish art as an integral dimension in the holistic education of students in the Denver area by offering intensive and experiential arts education programming to area youth through programs like EPIC Arts. EPIC Arts provides a platform for RedLine Resident Artists to work in collaboration with educators from Denver area K-12 schools to implement an experiential curriculum that creates a body of artwork through a lens of contemporary social justice. Future programming will continue to engage youth in schools and eventually extend to workshops at RedLine’s Community Studio.
RedLine believes in art’s ability to enrich, inspire and transform. We are fully committed to bringing that vision – as well as practical strategies for its realization – to the community. It is in this spirit that Reach Studio, a program that uses art as a medium for assisting homeless clients in moving toward self-sufficiency, was born. A means to transforms public spaces abdicated to blight by reclaiming them, through art, as public commons, Reach Studio challenges participants to consider art as a career and teaches them business of art-making.
