International Arts & Artists’ Hillyer Art Space presents Six in the Mix: Selections by Renee Stout this Friday

Hillyer Art Space at 9 Hillyer Court, NW, is proud to present Six in the Mix, a group exhibition curated by famed D.C. artist Renee Stout. The exhibition opens Friday, July 3rd, 2009, with a reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. featuring music by DJ Deep Sang. $5 suggested donation. The exhibition closes Friday, August 28, 2009. Reception Opening: July 3, 2009 6 - 9pm

Six in the Mix: Selections by Renee Stout brings together a divergent company of mid-Atlantic emerging and mid-career artists for Hillyer Art Space’s summer program. This show will feature the work of Cianne Fragione, Kenyatta Hinkle, Adam Griffiths, Marc Roman, James Swainbank, and Gilbert Trent.

Stout has set out to create a mixed bag of local talent not based in the obligatory conceptual framework predominantly exhibited in group shows. Instead of the varying inspiration and ideas behind the individual bodies of work, it is the "natural dialogue that may occur between these works" which Stout would like the audience to experience.
