Edge Gallery, a Denver landmark, is ending its run in the Navajo Street arts neighborhood with one final show, and a blow-out closing party.
Like other galleries in that area, rising real estate prices have made it difficult for the non-profit, co-op to stay in the the city’s urban core. It’s moving to the new, 11-acre Concept Colorado space in Commerce City, which is set to open in the first half of 2017. Concept, which is being developed by art scene veteran Jeanie Nuanes King, will “offer art studios, galleries, food and other amenities; and eventually live/work spaces,” according to its website.
Edge’s final show runs for one weekend only and starts with an event on Dec. 9
Here’s the info, from member Susan Berkely:
December 9, 10 & 11
Reception and Artist Tree auction: Friday, December 9, 6:00-10:00 pm.
An artistic celebration of the holiday season, featuring interactive wishlist-inspired toys by Susan Hazaleus. Iconic religious imagery transformed by found materials and 52 painted ornaments that reflect a year of random Google questions by Faith Williams. Join us for a silent auction of 12 “Artist Trees”, fanciful and quirky interpretations of the standard 2 foot imitation tree. Deck your halls.
The gallery will remain in its space through December 17, when it plans to hold a closing party. Details on that to follow.
