Please join us for an Artist & Curator talk and a closing reception for __lineation__ a solo show by John Ros curated by Stephanie J. Williams.
John Ros reacts to the thirty-year history of DCAC’s main gallery by creating a site-specific, subtle installation of line-work in order to help visitors become more aware of their surroundings. Ros’ aesthetic, both clean and deliberate, exposes a need to make visible through form and line that which is easily overlooked. __lineation__ is an intervention that in its simplicity and directness encourages contemplation.
Opening Reception: Friday, January 18, 7-9pm
Exhibition on view January 18 — February 17.
