For the past eight weeks, Red Bull House of Art has given eight artists the tools, time and space to create, explore and refine their craft.
The gallery is located at the E & B Brewery Lofts in Eastern Market 1551 Winder St. Detroit, MI 48207
Selected by curator Matt Eaton, each artist works in a slightly different medium from Crystal Vinson’s encaustic-infused photography to Ben Saginaw’s ancient ink-and-pen nib drawings, back through Keri Mortimer’s abstract take on industrial landscapes and Franklin Jonas’ geometrically and mathematically stunning laser-cut metal sculptures.
The gallery built out directly below the artists’ dedicated workspace in E & B Brewery Lofts is stunning and like no other.
Built in 1891, Red Bull House of Art blends traditional New York-style gallery space with raw, cavernous rooms unique to Detroit’s rich architectural history.
Eight local Detroit artists were selected to participate in the first gallery showing. Resident artists range from emerging talents like Jeff Risk....
...Crystal Vinson to Peter DeAngelo (work has appeared in the pages of GQ,Playboy and Juxtapoz) and Matt Gordon (a resident artist for clothing company for RVCA).
