DNA Summer Artists' Residency Exhibition 2012
DNA Gallery is pleased to present the results of its inaugural artist-in-residence program for Summer 2012. Twenty artists were selected for one- and two-week residencies on the Cape this season, to create new work inspired by their environment, either created in the gallery or offsite. They were offered an apartment in nearby Eastham and workspace at the gallery in Provincetown, and the ensuing art they produced is spectacular. Mostly New York-based, many of the artists exhibit regularly at curator and gallery-owner Nick Lawrence's sister gallery in NYC, Freight+Volume (while others traveled from as far away as Portugal to participate).
Featured Artists: Peter Allen Hoffmann, Kristen Schiele , Black Lake (Susan Jennings + Slink Moss), Daniel Heidkamp, Erik den Breejen, David Baskin, Elizabeth Huey, Aaron Johnson, Rosa Almeida, Russell Tyler, Maria Calandra, Trudy Benson, Nicole Wittenberg, Jessica Wynne, Mi Ju, Ilse Murdock and James Franklin
In many cases the artists shifted their preferred media (painting to photography or sculpture to sound work, for example), to better interpret their new surroundings. Some brought studio work they had begun in the city to complete, with fresh eyes, in the country. Others created work specifically in response to the gallery space and their explorations of the Cape. All are unique and original reactions to an inspirational area - like the shifting dunes and tides - always in flux.
Please join us for a reception on Friday, August 31st from 7-10pm to meet several of the artists and see the fruits of their labor.
