The opening reception last night was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who came out despite the swirling snow and slushy roads! The installation of Nicole M. Gibbs is a sight to see, so if you did not make it out, please swing by today (Saturday) the gallery will be open from 2 - 7pm.
We are happy to announce a CALL FOR ENTRIES for our upcoming show.
The exhibition is a group show called: Conversely. February 4 – 26, 2011
Submissions should reflect how we interact, correspond, and engage with others. Ideally, the work should speak to how two people might connect or demonstrate a lack of connection. This exhibition is exploring concepts of reciprocation and exchange. A second component of the exhibition is a participatory element in which the CAC will accept letters with instructions for the guests to perform in the space from individuals from across the country. These performances will ensue at the opening reception on Friday, February 4, 2011, from 6 – 9 pm.
