The Denver Hospice produces The Mask Project – a gallery of handcrafted clay masks by renowned artists, celebrities, sports figures, heroes and community leaders.

Through the online auction of hundreds of masks and generous community sponsorships, this biennial community event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for end-of-life care throughout the Denver area.

More than 1 million visitors to the Cherry Creek Shopping Center viewed The Mask Project. The online auction of masks generated hundreds of thousands of hits on The Mask Project website where bidding gets fierce – especially during the final days.

Since its founding in 1998, The Mask Project has captured national attention and raised nearly $4.5 million for end-of-life care.

Call for Entry: Drawing Never Dies at RedLine

Call for Entry: Drawing Never Dies at RedLine

Entries due by Saturday May 14th 2016

Show runs July 8 - August 5, 2016

Donald Fodness

Perhaps the oldest and most basic art act, drawing remains relevant despite significant changes in technology and the nature of art. The definition of drawing is blurry and often serves as a basis for study in most every other medium. Drawing is rarely is given the same attention as other disciplines within visual art, but is regularly a root for other artistic practices, as well as being a valid realm on its own.

Drawing Never Dies will survey the range of drawing taking place today. Approaches may span from minimal to maximal, meticulous to messy, monumental to miniature. From commonplace and traditional materials such as graphite and pens on paper, to drawing on the surface of the earth, to artists working with technology such as 3d pen drawings in space or forms intended for experience on the screen; we are interested in a broad/expansive survey of drawing now. We invite artists who consider their work from the vantage of drawing to submit to this juried exhibition.

Drawing Never Dies is open to all artists over the age of 18 working in any 2D, 3D, or new media. Artists are encouraged to submit their best work.

Guest Jurors: RedLine is pleased to announce Donald Fodness (artist & curator) and Daisy McGowan (Director & Chief Curator of Gallery of Contemporary Art, Colorado Springs) will serve as co-curators for RedLine's annual juried exhibition in the main exhibition hall.
