In Unison: 20 Washington, DC Artists

Millennium Arts Salon Opens "In Unison: 20 Washington, DC Artists" at Capital One's Reston, Virginia Executive Center
February 6 through April 30, 2012

"In Unison:  20 Washington, DC Artists" represents a collaboration of a group of Washington, DC area artists, distinguished by their diversity in terms of accomplishments - emerging, mid-career, and masters; ethnicity - African American, White American, Asian American and Latin American; age - from the 30's to the 80's; gender - male and female; and varying artistic approaches - painters, sculptors, digital media and installation artists, and a few printmakers. 

These artists came together in the welcoming space of the print studio at George Mason University School of Art to each create 5 monoprints (from February to June 2010 and during the month of June 2011).  While they were exploring their artistic expression individually through the printmaking process, the environment provided opportunities for interaction among the artists and promoted a true sense of collaboration. In the Washington, DC environment where art communities remain largely segregated, these artists crossed the color line both literally and figuratively, fostering hope for our world's future. Selected works from the over 100 monoprints created were initially shown at the Kreeger Museum and then selected works of the 20 at the Hillyer Art Space in 2011.
