The Denver Collage Club is a gathering of local and international collage artists who have been gathering, sharing and exploring ideas on the topic of collage today. The Denver Collage Club is membership by invite. Founded by Mark Sink and Mario Zoots.
"In the beginning we invited our community of collage artists to gather on the second Tuesday of each month at RedLine Studios Denver.
The idea is to share and learn about current and historical work and forward-thinking ideas on the topic of collage today and form a group that will get international notice.
The meetings are a very informal social. Members bring something to show and tell or just drink and snack and listen. This is not a workshop or a club you simply join. The core members are formed out of quality of work and passionate drive in the field and their career. Some will stick and rise into the core membership...some will fall off, it not being their thing. Some will be core members and never come.
I have personally found success in the past with a Denver photography salon, curating serious and talented artists with common interests. From the core group, exhibitions are assembled and traveled to hub cities around the world. Success is high when presenting a pre-curated show of great talent to top galleries and museums. Power in numbers. Everyone got a lot out of it at many levels. I hope to achieve this with our group." -- Co-founder, Mark Sink.

About Alto Gallery: Alto Gallery opened in February 2016 in the Berkley neighborhood of Denver, CO. "Alto" means "high" in Spanish, and it's a reference not only to our "Mile High" locale, but to the heights for which we strive. While considering a long list of names, Alto was undergoing extensive remodeling that exposed our beautiful, high barreled wooden ceiling. Altogether, the name fit.
Alto Gallery shows a wide range of contemporary art from local and national artists, aiming to bring a little bit of the RiNo vibe to the Tennyson Street Cultural District.
In addition to being a traditional art gallery, Alto is the visual arts headquarters for Birdseed Collective, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that services Denver’s urban community through arts, entrepreneurship, and food drive programs. One such program is called 1of1 Magazine, and it’s a local publication dedicated to highlighting and promoting Denver metro’s fantastic visual arts community through reviews, interviews, q + a’s, and extensive event photography.
