Denver artists guild - colorado artists guild


In 1928-29 a group of 52 Colorado artists banded together to form the Denver Artists Guild with goals ???to encourage the practice and appreciation of the fine arts and to promote the highest professional standards in original art.??? These founders were a diverse group geographically and stylistically with influences of Impressionism, Cubism, Expressionism and later Abstraction. Some of the better known founders include Vance Kirkland, Arnold Ronnebeck, Gladys Caldwell Fisher and John Edward Thompson. Source: Deborah Wadsworth, curator of ???Denver Artists Guild Founders ???
