DESCRIPTION

Lloyd Dobler Gallery is pleased to announce 6/6/6: Six Artists, Six Cities, Six Connections, opening with an Artists’ Reception on Friday, April 1st from 6-10pm. 6/6/6 is a traveling exhibition that created itself through connectivity. With the proliferation of social networking and technology-based communication, making real connections becomes more important than ever. Each artist in this exhibition has selected one other artist who lives and works in a different community, forming a network of art communities and developing personal connections among artists and audiences. This effort makes introduces new practitioners to each locale and infuses each region with new energy from around the country. Like a chain letter, this process is expansive and like an exquisite corpse, the results are surprising and unexpected. Appropriately for a show about drawing connections, the show takes the drawn line as its subject and features artists from all over the country. The exhibition, in a sense, created itself by means of connectivity. *Hi-resolution images available on request through the gallery.
