Few living artists in Colorado can claim the wide-spread influence and impact that Margaret Neumann has had on the art-practice of generations of artists – both those who have already been critically and institutionally embraced as well as a cohort of younger, aspiring artists, many of whom have never met her but whose work is clearly indebted to Neumann’s enduring imprint. Neumann has achieved a near mythic stature and she has served as mentor, teacher, guide and inspiration to countless artists in Colorado and the surrounding region.
Margaret Neumann was a singular figure in the emergence of RedLine as an “incubator” for young artists and her role as one of RedLine’s first “mentor” (Resource) artists speaks to her centrality in this institution’s visibility and mission. This retrospective exhibition - “What Lies Between” - celebrates Neumann’s return to the place that deeply nourished her and those artists fortunate enough to have encountered her.
