We have monthly meetings to discuss Art and NEXT Gallery's involvement in the Art community. We are a cooperative so each member pitches in by paying dues to cover rent, coming to monthly meetings, supporting each others' shows and performing duties at the gallery.

At the culmination of the four-week residency, the artist will have the opportunity for a reception or presentation of their work open to the public.

Theme: “Just Try It” In the spirit of the Library’s commitment to innovation and experimentation, the "Just Try It" Residency aims to enrich the lives of customers at DPL by connecting them with members of our community who demonstrate extraordinary talent and dedication to their work. The program also aims to support our artist community by creating new opportunities and providing in-depth experiences with the resources already available at the Library. The goal of the program is to further the applications of the Denver Public Library’s mission: The Denver Public Library connects people with information, ideas and experiences to provide enjoyment, enrich lives and strengthen our community.
