Events at DC Arts Center August 22-August 29, 2014

In the Gallery

1460 Wallmountables
July 25 to August 31
Deinstallation: August 27-31, 2-7pm

One of our most popular and inclusive exhibitions is also one of our oldest traditions. Since 1989 1460 Wallmountables has offered the opportunity for artists of all disciplines and abilities to show in this open hanging. We divide our wall space into 2 foot by 2 foot squares with strings, which creates a floor to ceiling grid on which artists hang their work. The work must fit into the space, and while artists can acquire more than one space, the work may not overlap the squares. The result is a most remarkable salon-style show that despite its diversity has a distinct rhythm. On the last day of hanging the strings come down, we clean up the gallery and have one of the most populated openings in town.

All events take place at:
