“On Beauty”: The Denver Collage Club
As part of the Month of Photography, The Robert Anderson Gallery and The Denver Collage Club present a large and powerful exhibition of collage works from 20 artists from Denver, the US, and Europe.
The Denver Collage Club is a group of local and international collage artists who have been gathering, sharing and exploring ideas on the topic of collage in physical spaces in Denver and globally through the Internet. The Denver Collage Club was founded by Denver photographer Mark Sink and assisted by Denver collage artist Mario Zoots. The two artists have put together a selection of new works by the club’s artists. They are also grateful to receive works from the Teresa and Paul Harbaugh Collection, including select works by Jerry Uelsmann, Alexander Rodchenko and Herbert Bayer. Being able to pull from historical photomontage and collage works and integrating them with the club’s young, contemporary artists creates a thread that spans over 100 years. This inaugural exhibition is a celebration of collage, finding the absurd the beautiful and the strange in the images we find around ourselves.
Artists exhibiting with The Denver Collage Club in “On Beauty” include: Adam Milner, Alexander Rodchenko, Colin Ward, David H. Tippits, Freddie Max Levenson, Gary Emrich, Herbert Bayer, Janice McDonald, Jeromie Dorrance, Jerry Uelsmann, Kyle Huninghake, Laura Shill, Libby Barbee, Mado Reznik, Mario Zoots, Mark Sink, Matthew Rose, Melissa Lynn, Paula Gillen, Samuel Mata, Steve Wilson, Susan Goldstein, Taylor Balkissoon, and Travis Hetman.
