Resonate Opening Reception

DVAC’s Biennial Juried Members Show

The emotional resonance of objects, common or curious, is something that drives artists to create new work from what has been discarded.  Over the past century, many artists—painters, writers, poets—have seen potential in the ephemera of life, inspiring works that strive to preserve memory, beauty, history or simply the mystery of the past.  This exhibition of juried work by DVAC members—selected by curator Eileen Carr and artist Christina Pereyma (the collaborative team of Remnants, on view at DVAC during the same period)—will present a range of works that reflect the resonant potential of objects drawn from life.

Art Talk- Mychaelyn Michalec, The Dig, Kelsey Projects

Art Talk- Mychaelyn Michalec, The Dig, Kelsey Projects

Thursday, April 7th 7- 8 PM

@  Miami Township Branch Library

 

Mychaelyn Michalec is an exhibiting artist in The DIG: Gem City Art Excavation and recipient of a ReImaging Works commission with The Dayton Metro Library & The Dayton Arts Institute. 

 

Michalec explores reconstructed memory and creative misuse of history using personal images as an autobiographical narrative. Remembering becomes a creative act and a way to redefine the past. Remembering becomes about reinvention and nostalgia for something that never existed. Using collected left over house paint from stay at home moms is symbolic of the idealized beauty of home life. Come learn more about Mychaelyn Michalec journey as an artist this Thursday night.

The DIG: Gem City Art Excavation is a mail art exhibition made up of work by artists who live and/ or work within a 30-mile radius of Dayton, OH.  Mail art, otherwise known as postal art or correspondence art began in the late 50s with artist Ray Johnson and the New York Correspondence school. The DIG utilizes this egalitarian form breaking down the boundaries of the hierarchical art establishment by creating a system in which all local emerging and established artists are invited to participate.  This installation celebrates the diversity and talents of the Dayton art community with works on canvas, paper, sculpture, textiles, dress making and ceramics.
