DCAC’s Curatorial Initiative program has given aspiring curators the opportunity to work with and be mentored by established and experienced curators since 2006. The resulting exhibitions have brought over 200 artists to our gallery, and in celebration of those shows we have assembled a small sampling of their work.
Join us on November 18 for a reception to celebrate the arrival of a two volume collection of all the catalogs from Curatorial Initiative exhibitions from 2006 to 2016. Several of the artists will be on hand to discuss their work and there will be a brief discussion about the program and its resonance in our community.
On view: September 9, 2021 – January 2, 2022
Reception & Artist Talk: October 9th @ 7pm
“The pandemic gave my mother and I time to talk about our traumas. I felt claustrophobic and isolated – a combination previously real, while hiking Montserrat. I began painting the mountain in acrylic on panel and left the sky empty. Mountains take on bruises, to examine domestic violence, bared strength, isolation.” – Elizabeth Ashe
