Hands-On Art

Red Delicious is a printing press, and it's also a place: The printmaking facility and co-op named after its centerpiece — the candy-apple-red enameled press that gives the space life — offers opportunities and classes for artists, as well as an exhibit area. Even the venue itself, housed in the old public library building in downtown Aurora (designed in the 1950s by notable Denver architect Victor Hornbein) is a work of art.

The fledgling Red Delicious Press gallery, 9901 East 16th Avenue, demonstrates the collaborative process of printmaking and highlights a limited-edition portfolio of woodcuts by co-op members with its second show, Beginnings. The display continues through April 5; for details, call 303-366-2922 or go to www.reddeliciouspress.com.

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.
