100 Colorado Creatives: Alicia Bailey

#45: Alicia Bailey

Alicia Bailey is an exacting artist who works in -- but isn't limited to -- the book arts, which are the original focus of her Abecedarian Gallery in Denver's Art District on Santa Fe. Creator and curator, Bailey displays a rare attention to detail, difficult processes and the intellectual and personal intimacies tucked between the pages of artist books, prints and box installations. Bailey adheres to that private branch of artistry that is partly scientific in nature; like an art librarian, she amasses work by artists of a similar mind from across the nation.

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.
