I got news today of yet another death on the Denver art scene. Ironton, in the RiNo Arts District, has been sold and will be converted into a distillery. Just what this town needs. Aren’t there enough distilleries and craft breweries in Denver? Read this and weep.
Dear Friends of Ironton,
After 18 years we have decided to end our partnership and sell Ironton. On February 28th we will change hands, the new owners will be the Ironton Distillery.
We are having one last party and show on Friday February 24th.
Please stop by and help us toast a longer and more varied life than was ever imagined for this space; we’ve had over 150 gallery shows, 10 solstice parties, a couple weddings, 2 wakes, 2 iron pours, many fundraisers, and the first ever RiNo parties.
We want to express our sincere gratitude for everyone who visited the gallery and studios over the years, without your interest and support this would not have endured.
Thank you to the artists who showed their work in the gallery. The responsibility of putting on exhibits here was theirs, from installing the art to buying the beer and hosting the opening. You made us look good.
Finally, thanks to the artists who rented studios from us, some as long as 14 years. They were the folks that made our daily lives go ‘round and made all our Ironton endeavors possible.
Party starts at 6pm.
