Robischon Gallery, Denver, Colorado, has been producing compelling exhibitions of regional, national and international artists since 1976. Embracing the current pluralism in art, the exhibitions and artists represented purposefully address a wide range of stylistic and contextual concerns. Ongoing dialogues in the art world, such as the rise and impact of Middle Eastern and Chinese contemporary art, are consistently included in the thoughtful and wide-ranging exhibition program, as well as extensive showings of represented artists of influence such as Judy Pfaff, Ann Hamilton, Bernar Venet and Manuel Neri, among others. In its history, Robischon Gallery has premiered many extensive exhibitions in the Mountain States Region of such ground-breaking artists as Robert Motherwell, Christo, Robert Rauschenberg and Richard Serra, while maintaining its on-going commitment to exhibiting mid-career and emerging artists of integrity and vision.
Within its 9000 square-foot space, Robischon Gallery’s thematically driven exhibitions are scheduled seven times per year, with each exhibition typically composed of two to three concurrent solos and a featured group presentation. The gallery is designed to address up to twenty solo exhibitions within its yearly program. Painting, sculpture, photography, video and installation are regularly presented by those established and emerging artists who are engaged in a diverse range of art making practices.
The lengthy artist’s list reflects a wide range of relationships throughout the gallery’s nearly 40 years in operation - including the names of currently represented artists and affiliated artists as well as those artists who have been primarily associated with the gallery through its exhibition program. The gallery has long been recognized for premiering important artists and artworks over the last four decades in the Mountain States region.
Robischon Gallery is located one block from the newly renovated Union Station in the historic district of Lower Downtown (LoDo) Denver, Colorado.

Mayer, distinguished Colorado collectors and philanthropists. Additionally, the gallery is neighbors to other commercial galleries located in Lower Downtown and noteworthy as a visual art destination area.
