RedLine Residency Artists

RedLine Residency Artists is presented by the Denver office of Ascent Private Capital Management of U.S. Bank and curated by the Elizabeth Leach Gallery. Located in Denver, RedLine Contemporary Art Center fosters education and engagement between artists and communities to create positive social change. Founded in 2008 by Laura Merage, RedLine was created to support emerging artists and provide creative opportunities for local residents.

RedLine serves as an incubator for a group of resident artists through an in-depth, two-year residency program that includes free studio space, community engagement opportunities and professional development. The organization also offers a range of programming that responds to the needs of the varied communities that live in the surrounding neighborhoods. Viewing art and arts education through a lens of social issues, the organization ensures equitable access to the arts for under-resourced populations by working to fulfill a vision of empowering everyone to create social change through art.

    Jaime Carrejo is a multi-discipline artist and his projects involve painting, sculpture, video, and immersive installations that use layered materials such as rusting oxidation paint, colorful vinyl, and poured acrylic paint. Carrejo considers the layering of materials and imagery pivotal in exploring the collision of multi-hybrid identities and alterity (the state of being other or different) that form complicated relationships.

    Thomas Evans, aka Detour, is an interactive visual artist experimenting with the intersections of art, music and technology. With his ever-evolving approach to art, Detour’s focus is on expanding customary views of creativity and challenging fine-art paradigms by mixing traditional mediums with new technologies — all the while opening up the creative process from that of a singular artist, to one that thrives on multi-layered collaboration and viewer participation.
