EDGE is a contemporary, non-profit, co-op art gallery dedicated to artists outside the domain of commercial art venues. Because we are not dependant on sales for our survival, we have the freedom to pursue more experimental modes of expression. Our primary objectives are to celebrate individuality and uniqueness, to encourage our shared vision, and to maintain our intensity and integrity in addressing the often contradictory messages occurring in contemporary art.
Over 25 years ago, Pirate: contemporary art opened in Denver, Colorado as an audacious and eclectic alternative, cooperative gallery. Today, little has changed - although our space has gotten slightly smaller and our front door relocated about 50 feet south of the corner. Many member artists have come and gone, but Pirate persists. It's an institution that remains flexible and edgy.

Although NEXT is one of the newest co-op galleries in Denver, it certainly is not green. NEXT is comprised of seasoned, well-established artists, as well as the next "up & comers" of the art community.
Our goal is to create a community that fosters an investigation of art practices on all levels, from concept to material practices, traditional to avant-garde. NEXT aims to function similar to a co-op, and act as an artists gallery.
