The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is pleased to present our Summer Group Exhibition featuring artists Carlos Beltran, Ching Ching Cheng, Valérie Daval, Tiffany Anne Jordan, Echo Lew, Juan Pierri, Molly Schulman and Thomas Sedgwick. The featured artists were selected by DAC Gallery curators from a pool of over 100 candidates who submitted works in a variety of 2D mediums.
Beltran’s mixed media on paper and canvas investigate human relationships with manmade environments using everyday materials and surfaces; Cheng’s ”Watercolor Engine” series express a fascination with the inner-workings of machines and re-interprets them as bright, pulsing organisms in translucent color; Daval draws from personal photographs to create paintings which elicit a sense of temporality and introspection; Jordan’s freestyle drawings depict everyday objects in black linework reminiscent of a mad scientist’s doodles; Lew’s process can be called photographic, however the result is a multitude of delicate, organic lines that are “drawn with light”; Pierri’s monotype prints and mixed media paper works depict map-like renderings of people and organs; Schulman’s paintings play with the potential for absurdity to be found in common places; Sedgwick’s compositions feature tightly-packed figures evocative of cellular clusters.
An opening reception will take place during the July Downtown Art Walk on Thursday, July 9th, from 7 to 9 PM. The exhibition will be on view at DAC Gallery from July 9th to August 28th, 2015.
• Free to attend; light refreshments served

Come out to BLANKSPACES in Downtown for our featured artist, Sage Gallon, an abstract artist with an abstract approach. He uses a myriad of color tones to create a movement of brush strokes that is reflected in his art. He also takes the hardships he's endured and has used art to channel it into a positive energy.
Sage Gallon will also be doing live poetry reading from his debut c.d. entitled, "Naked Under My Clothes", which takes you on a journey through the struggles in his life. Join us on July 9th, from 7-9 p.m. to experience one mans journey and the paths he took to reach the point he's at.
