Years before Santa Fe Drive’s first First Friday, artists bought into Denver’s west side

By Ashley Dean, Denverite

It’s a blustery but mercifully cool summer evening in Denver, and Santa Fe Drive is buzzing. Four blocks along the gallery-laden strip and its side streets have been fenced off and occupied by 15,000 people and dozens of food trucks for the biggest First Friday Art Walk of the year.

Every month, galleries on and around the stretch from Seventh to 11th avenues leave their doors open late for a neighborhood-wide reception. The event has been happening for more than a decade, drawing a growing and changing crowd in a growing and changing city. On its biggest night of the year, galleries were packed as people wandered, beverages in hand, from studios to food trucks to a live music stage.

“The First Friday Art Walk, on one hand, it’s not always a revenue generator for the businesses. However, it’s a really unpretentious foray into the art world if you’ve never stepped foot into a gallery,” Art District on Santa Fe President Amy Phare said. “Everyone is open, and it’s open to everyone. There’s highbrow art, there’s lowbrow art, there’s contemporary studios, there’s performance art. Whatever your price point and interest in art, there’s something for everyone.”

It’s been the Art District on Santa Fe’s best advertisement since before the district formally existed and it embodies much of what it’s about: accessibility and community.

August 2018: "Blue" - Member Group Show

The members of Artists on Santa Fe Gallery have once again undertaken a fun and exciting group show. As in the past group projects, we've expanded our typical approaches, but this time we've decided to focus on a single color  -  "Blue".  As expected, we have fun and surprising ways of solving this concept.  Thirteen of our members have each finished five 8"x8" panels using various materials and imaginative techniques, resulting in 65 panels that will be installed as one huge grid.  Be sure to visit the gallery during August to see the results!

Here's a sneak peak at a bit of what you'll see:




Manifestation: Paintings by Nicole Korbe July 5 - 30, 2018

Don't miss our next exciting exhibition featuring Nicole Korbe's abstract paintings.  This body of work rides the edge of imagination and reality.  Her use of colors and non-traditional painting tools result in images redolent of natural landscapes or city scenes.  This collection includes many of Nicole's newer pieces created in oil media including oil pastel or oil pigments cibined with cold wax medium.  A "must see" show!


July 5 - 30
1st Friday  -  July 6, 6-9 pm
3rd Friday Artist's Reception  -  July 20, 5-8 pm
