Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Sandra Fettingis

#55: Sandra Fettingis

Sandra Fettingis, one of RedLine's newest artist/residents, works in geometric patterns that powerfully repeat in sculptural installations, murals and even jewelry, with a result that's both decorative and smartly modern. Chicago-born, but now a Denverite whose latest forays include "I Know You Know That I Know," a site-specific public installation at the Colorado Convention Center and a local product partnership with the West Elm home-furnishing store in Cherry Creek, Fettingis also helped spearhead Project Hello, a networking incubator for local artists in all disciplines, in 2010. We asked Fettingis, whose work is equally at home in large-scale iterations and small-scale exhibitions, to share her take on being an artist in the 21st century by answering the 100CC questionnaire; read on to learn more.

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.
