Made Known

March 31, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for the opening reception of the final Rough Gems 2022 exhibition: Made Known, on Thursday, March 31st from 6-8 pm at Union Hall.

In Made Known, the makers, artists, and artisans place themselves, their story and personhood so intimately into their craft that it is impossible to separate the maker from object. Those experiencing the work are indelibly connected to the maker as individual human in their autobiographical storytelling, rejecting capitalism’s division of labor. There is no way to view these works and not think about the artisan and the movements of their hand and heart. The care in craft, the process of skill, the movements of the hand, connected to a body, manipulating the material, becomes the medium which these artists make themselves known to the world.

Rough Gems is an annual open call and collaborative curatorial project at Union Hall. The goal of this ambitious rotating exhibition series is to showcase local curatorial and artistic talent by turning over Union Hall’s gallery space to emerging curators, inviting them to share an exhibition in an active and experimental environment and providing them tangible support in the form of time, space, mentorship, and funds. With Rough Gems, Union Hall hopes to impact the lives of emerging artists and curators with a platform for exhibition that is inclusive, supportive, and committed to the artists we serve by paying them for exhibitions and performances.

Union Hall is located inside The Coloradan, next to Union Station, across from Whole Foods. The address is 1750 Wewatta Street, Suite 144, Denver CO, 80202.
