We’re back and we could not think of a better show to end the summer with than our annual all inclusive group show.

This DCAC tradition reflects our core commitment to supporting and showing under-represented artists. At 1460 Wallmountables, we present over three hundred artworks on practically every inch of our gallery. We divide the gallery walls into two foot by two foot squares, in which everyone and anyone can hang their artwork on a first-come basis. There will be work by children, students, self-taught artists, emerging, mid, and late career artists alike.

Since 1989, thousands of artists have participated in this show, including Richard Seigman, JoAnne Kent, Michael Booker, Chris Combs, Pat Goslee, Megan Maher, Karen Joan Topping, and Charlie Visconage to name just a few. The inclusive nature of 1460 Wallmountables makes it one of the most diverse exhibitions in Washington and it stays up all summer long, so participating artists can enjoy a substantial amount of exposure.

Artists can purchase up to five 2′ x 2′ spaces to hang their artwork. Spaces sell on a first-come, first-served basis for $15 per square. Current DCAC members receive one free space and brand new members receive 3 spaces for their membership fee of $30.

Installation and gallery visits by appointment only. Artists are responsible for hanging their own work. Don’t forget to bring hanging materials! Work is accepted from a wide range of media created by artists at various stages in their careers. There is no curating; if it fits, it shows.

This year gallery attendees will vote for artists who made the most innovative use of the limited space. There will be 3 winners who will each receive a $100 “Best Use of Space” prize which is presented during the online reception.

(De)composition

by Stephanie Garon

curated by Jerry Truong

February 21st – March 22nd 2020

Closing/Artist Talk: March 22nd, 5-7pm

Stephanie Garon’s current body of work, presented in “(De)composition,” includes drawings, sculptures, and a hanging installation. Each piece contains industrial elements, such as steel, combined with natural materials she personally collected. While deceptively formal, the resulting artworks are actually ecologically motivated interventions. As the pieces move and change over time, the physical process of decomposition becomes evident, emphasizing the fragility of nature. In this exhibition, Garon continues her exploration of the ways in which the environment is vulnerable to humanity, as well as her own evolving role as an artist, poet, and activist.

This visual arts group show by Iranian women features photography, mixed media, drawing and sculpture. Iran is a millenia-old nation made up of many cultures and multiple stories. Those cultures and those stories have been transported with women who brought their roots to this country, to remember those cultures, patterns and surroundings and recreate them in their art.

Out of Joint – Small Drawings

by Karen Schiff

November 22, 2019 – February 23, 2020

Opening Reception: Thursday, December 12th, 6-8PM
Closing Reception/Artist Talk: Sunday, February 23rd, 5-7PM

These playing-card-sized drawings, made with graphite and watercolor pencil, twist and pull at the classic forms of the modernist grid. Space is revealed to be delightfully unpredictable and lumpy, no longer smoothly consistent or mathematically measurable. The exhibition title derives from a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet: the beleaguered title character laments, “The time is out of joint.” But the drawings add a touch of humor, as their forms persist in singing a bit “off-key”.
