Group Exhibition: DDAY Collective Portrait of an Artist
Opening Reception, Friday, October 24th, 6-8pm
Gallery Hours: Thurs & Fri 2-7pm, Sat 1-6pm
Pleasant Plains Workshop is pleased to present a group exhibition featuring members of the local arts collective, DDAY. DDAY Collective was established in 2013 by DC-based artists David Ibata, Danielle Scruggs, alice wonder, and Yodith Dammlash to promote and support emerging artists in the DC Metropolitan area through independent curatorial projects and cultural programming.
‘Portrait of an Artist’ explores the nature of visual work as a reflective surface, one that gives insight into artists’ processes, practices, influences and distinct personalities. Within this exhibit, each artist evokes their working space (internal/external) by placing physical items and ephemera around the completed work, to provide the audience context into personal influences that inform their craft, helping to complete a “portrait” of the person who created it.
