Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Gretchen Marie Schaefer

#68: Gretchen Marie Schaefer

Artist Gretchen Marie Schaefer, another TANK Studio member with roots as a RedLine resident, explores issues of mortality, decay and rebirth in two and three dimensions, building installations that take off from where her drawings leave off, using and reusing materials from one work to the next. Leading a busy life that includes coordinating the visiting artist program at the Rocky Mountain Collage of Art + Design, Schaefer still finds time to generate and regenerate works for exhibits at a variety of gallery venues. Learn more about what motivates and inspires Schaefer via her answers to the 100CC questionnaire.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
