VISIONS OF HOME

I'm very proud to be apart of the Visions of Home exhibition which is
an exhibition and art placement project organized by The Art
Connection in the Capital Region in conjunction with the Arts
Management Program at George Mason University, a component
of GMU's College of Visual and Performing Arts.

March 18 - April 16, 2015

Reception:
Wednesday, April 1st 2015
6:00Pm-8:00PM

Founders Hall Gallery
George Mason University
3351 Fairfax Drive
Arlington, VA 22201

*********************************************************************
I'm pleased to present that I will be in a new art exhibition
at Epicure Café entitled....Subliminal. Curated by
The Bunnyman Bridge Collective, Subliminal brings
together an eclectic group of artists working in a variety
of media. Spend an evening with the artists:

David Barr
Abner De Jesus
Justyne Fischer
Toni Hitchcock
Richard McMurry
Javier Padilla
Veronica Perez
Matt Riegner
Julia Rivera
Asad Walker

Music for the evening will be provided by
The Shadow Girl Sound Collective. A foursome with an
affinity for sharp corners and crooked lines, The Shadow
Girl Sound Collective begins with a charcoal hologram of a
post-jazz, post-hip-hop, pre-apocalyptic world and arrives at
off-axis melodies, pulled by the leash of an insatiable groove
and delivered with the essential sting of a horn.

Below the threshold of our conscious minds lives a world of
images that flow and flash but are left only partially processed
or entirely unprocessed by our psyche. Subliminal tempts you
to delve into concepts of perception, imagination, play, consumption,
and memory through an enveloping new collection of art. The
artists of Subliminal invite you to inhabit a world immersed in
inspiration from pop culture, dream-life, myth, religion, deep memory,
and everyday lived experience.

Epicure Café, located at 11104 Lee Highway in
Fairfax, VA, is open 7 days a week from 5 – midnight.
Subliminal will be on view at Epicure Café from
February 7, 2015 through April 18, 2015.

*********************************************************************
I'm very pleased to be included in Epicure Cafe's new art
exhibition entitled Fallen. Curated by The Bunnyman Bridge
Collective, Fallen brings together eight remarkable local
artists from across the DMV. Saturday, October 11,
from 8pm to midmight, spend an evening with the artists:

Lina Alattar
David Barr
Alex Beck
Michael Brown
Abner De Jesus
Javier Padilla
Kathy Turner
Asad ULTRA Walker

Music for the opening reception will include the unique
and darkly ethereal electronic sounds of local indie
project Den-Mate.

Fallen calls to mind a haunting and gorgeous otherworldly
autumnal embrace of dismantling degeneration. This
new exhibition explores not only an unfolding of new
desires and the yearning that comes with the change
of seasons, but also the dark spaces of our imaginations
and relationships regarding decay, the fallen world, falling
from grace, and fallen women. What tricks are at play in the
turn of a season? What is real in this supposed postlapsarian
world? What is fantasy? What illusions do we fall for in the
midst of our everyday? What lush and luminous tarnished
treasure can be found only through the process of rust,
corrosion, destruction, and descent?

Opening reception Saturday, October 11th at 8PM - 12AM

Sherwood Community Center Rotary Gallery
Opening Night - Artist's Preview Event
Friday, February 4th 7-9PM
3740 Old Lee Highway Fairfax, VA

The City of Fairfax is proud to announce the opening
of it’s first visual art exhibition at the new Sherwood
Community Center. “The Color of Time” will feature a
selection of artwork by eight contemporary artists from
around the country.

This exhibit brings together artists that address ideas
relating to systems of color theory, abstraction and
perceptions of time and space. Connections are constantly
being made within active environments, we associate one
thing with another thing, without even noticing that it’s
happening. Through this natural act of constructing our own
views of the world around us, images become distorted,
exaggerated and blended in our minds. “The Color of Time” is
about the infinite variety of these visual states that we can
perceive. Both color and time are concepts that revolve
around their own polar opposites, therefore defining
themselves not just by what they are, but by what they are
not. The artwork in this exhibit highlights each artist’s
approach to creating physical, psychological and emotional
responses for viewers.

Artwork by: Diana Adams, David Barr, Jennifer Bock-Nelson,
Seth Haverkamp, Craig Hill, Adam Lister, Stephanie Rivers,
Crystal Wagner

"Tinner Hill: Portraits in Black and White"
FCA Artists Participate in New Production


The work of FCA artists David Barr and Teddy Wiant
can be seen in June in "Tinner Hill: Portraits in Black
and White." The artists were invited by Creative Cauldron
to join the design team for this new production, opening
June 3 at ArtSpace Falls Church, 410 S. Maple Ave., in
Falls Church.

Teddy is creating the digital art/media for the show,
working with Creative Cauldron's set designer, Margie Jervis,
who is doing the overall design. David will have a major
wall devoted to his painting/collage.

Produced in collaboration with the Tinner Hill Heritage
Foundation, this original theater piece is being created
from oral histories and original source materials that
chronicle the lives of Falls Church's African American
citizens. The project received funding from both the Virginia
Commission for the Arts and the Arts Council of Fairfax
County and has been in research and development for
over a year.

"Tinner Hill: Portraits in Black and White" opens on
Thursday, June 3, and runs for two weekends in
conjunction with the Tinner Hill Blues Festival.
