The Gallery at the Red Brick


The Gallery at the Red Brick Center for the Arts can be found down the building's main hallway. Per the Red Brick's mission, the Red Brick Gallery only features local, Roaring Fork Valley artists. The Gallery has rotating shows throughout the year, and all art work is for sale. The Red Brick Gallery provides a unique opportunity to view and purchase art from local artists. For artists, the unique opportunity lies in the chance to exhibit a body of their artwork in a prominent place in Aspen. We value the opportunity to expose our community to new and emerging artists in the valley.

Each exhibition has a theme and features work by 6-10 local artists.  All are welcome to our free, community-oriented Opening Receptions. This is a great chance to talk with the artists and network with the art community in both Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley. We have free appetizers, music, and libations at these opening reception events. It's important to note that 20% of the Red Brick Gallery proceeds from art sales directly support the Red Brick's arts programming, while 80% goes straight back to the artist. Come support the arts at the Red Brick!
