DESCRIPTION

The DAC Gallery is proud to present “Under One Sun”, a group exhibition of twenty-two Los Angeles based artists. The exhibition encompasses a dynamic collection of prints, paintings, photographs and sculptures. Common genres explored in this exhibition are portraiture and landscape, with contemporary abstract interpretations of both.

The exhibiting artists are all instructors at the Exceptional Children’s Foundation (ECF) Art Center Program, a non-profit organization mentoring artists with special needs. Where some of the participating artists in “Under One Sun” take inspiration from the services they provide at ECF, others use their experiences to supplement their other creative endeavors.

This exhibition opens on the coattails of the large-scale project “Pacific Standard Time”, a historical retrospective of LA’s contemporary art scene up to the 1980s. “Under One Sun” pays homage to that historical lineage, specifically inspired by MoCA’s current exhibition, described as: “the dystopian atmorphere of the 1970s [which] created an artistic milieu that seemed to include everything under the sun”. This exhibition envisions a sampling of contemporary artwork being produced in Los Angeles today, albeit in a more utopian cultural atmosphere.

A preview will be held Friday, December 16th from 7-9pm, and is open to the public.

The official opening reception will be held Thursday, January 12, 2011 from 7-9pm
