I have been invited to take part in the Academy 2009 group show at Conner Contemporary Art in D.C. Academy 2009 is an invitation-only "survey dedicated to outstanding work by recent fine art graduates of regional college art programs."
Since opening in 1999, Conner Contemporary Art (CCA) has mobilized the careers of artists who excel in diverse media. Together with co-founder Jamie Smith, Ph.D., Conner has steadily developed a contemporary curatorial program grounded in the history of art, presenting the art of Washington-based artists in meaningful dialogue with the art of established international artists. Conner Contemporary represents Mary Coble, one of my favorite photographers.
Pulse Art Fair Miami/ New York will award exhibition/installation space to one artist participating in Academy 2009 for Pulse Miami (2009). Additionally, the Washington Project for the Arts will co-host a an emerging artist talk : No Artist Left Behind: The Top 10 Things Every Artist Should Know with Heather Darcy Bhandari and Jonathan Melber, authors of the recently published book ART/WORK: Everything You Need to Know (and Do) As You Pursue Your Art Career.
