Please join us for a joint closing event of Hillyer Art Space's exhibition Structured Turbulence by Dana Frostick and IA&A's membership exhibition Constructing Differences, Uncovering Connections curated by Maria Barbosa.
The event will take place from on Friday, February 26th from 5-8pm at Hillyer Art Space located at 9 Hillyer Ct (behind the Phillips Collection in Dupont Circle).
Structured Turbulence by Dana Frostick:
The origins of the paintings in this exhibit come from the chaos and motion found in the artist's subconscious. Her mystical process involves allowing lines to flow through her until becoming realized into more significant forms and spaces. Once these forms have been established, Frostick then revists with conte crayon and oils to define the patterns and themes which begin to make themselves known. The results are turbulent and intriguing. Dana Frostick was born in Richmond, VA where she attended Virginia Commonwealth University and studied sculpture. We are proud to provide Dana with her first opportunity to exhibit in Washington as a result of her selection by Hillyer Art Space's Artist Advisory Committee from our 2009 Call for Artists.
