> DESCRIPTION

The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is proud to present Transmissions, a group exhibition featuring sculptures and mixed media works on paper by fifteen local artists. Curated by Virginia Arce and Nat George, the exhibition focuses on works produced by this group while sharing studio space, influencing and informing each other’s art practice as colleagues and mentors.

Unconsciously, certain common traits started to emerge, such as strong subversive and “outsider” influences, resulting in non-traditional sculpture, portraiture, and abstract work. Gestural paintings mixing oil pastel and acrylic; sculptures made with wood and found objects, or ceramic and wire mimicking the look of hair; ink doodles on paper scraps; prints on top of leaf-like objects collaged on paper – all point to a rejection of tradition, while some celebrate an almost counterintuitive use of materials. Transmissions speaks of the unconscious connections formed while working creatively in a shared environment: the free flow of ideas, the transmittable nature of creativity, and the intuitive language of art making.

Transmissions is the DAC Gallery’s first formal opening in its new space at 431 S. Broadway, in Downtown L.A.’s Gallery Row. The DAC participates in the Downtown Art Walk, on the second Thursday of every month. 

Featured artists:  Mildred Anderson, Eugenia Barbuc, Shaka Gaston, Bessie Kunath, Jameel Linzy, Adriane Mota, Juan Carlos Ornelas, Juan Pierri, Arturo Retana, Leonard Salazar, Michael Schaeffer, Harvey Schwartz, Marvin Singer, Thomas Sedgwick, Jesse Warford.

About DAC Gallery
Throughout its years of operation, the DAC has sought to create a point of convergence for emerging local and international artists, as well as bring attention to a community of individuals whose works reflect experiences rarely presented to mainstream audiences, promoting disabled and outsider artists. Adjacent to the DAC is ECF’s Downtown Art Center, a large studio space where adult artists living with intellectual disabilities develop their work, and receive ongoing training in the field of visual arts. This professional art studio (one of four in Los Angeles) is staffed by gifted instructors, all of whom are working and exhibiting artists in their respective fields. ECF Art Centers is an adult program of the Exceptional Children’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded in 1946 to help children, students, and adults with special needs reach their greatest potential, at www.ECF.net
