Art. The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is pleased to present, Lore: Temporal and Sublime, a juried exhibition featuring eight artists working in drawing and printmaking.
Linking a body of innate knowledge and traditions passed through unspoken imagery and symbolism, Lore: Temporal and Sublime focuses on the uncanny and surreal aspects of visual storytelling. From the personal to the cosmic, each artist, in his or her own way, addresses the passage of time while hinting at a deeper meaning; archetypes, fables, mythology and personal histories are linked by a simple yet visceral aesthetic, prompting viewers to add their own interpretations, and pass this knowledge on to others.
The works in this exhibition seek to capture the delicate nature of memory, reveal the precariousness of the present, underscore the ambiguity of our origins, and embrace the uncertainty of the future. Drawing, printmaking, and some mixed media elements are rendered in subtle linework and transparent hues, with an almost otherworldly filter.
The impetus for Lore: Temporal and Sublime grew out of the universal themes of transience found in these eight artists’ works, each discovered through the DAC’s first juried call since 2011. The exhibition runs August 4 – September 4. An opening reception will be held on Thursday August 14, 7-9PM in conjunction with the Downtown Art Walk. For daytime visitors, the gallery will be open from 11:00AM-3:30PM.
Exhibiting Artists: Donna Abbate, Joanne Cervantes, Marie-Noëlle Deverre, Sy Hearn, Shannon Keller, Molly Rose Purcell, Kaitlynn Redell, Hannah Spitz.
- Free to attend.
- Light refreshments served.

About DAC Gallery:
Throughout its years of operation, the DAC has sought to create a point of convergence for emerging and mid-career local and international artists, while bringing attention to a community of individuals whose works reflect experiences rarely presented to mainstream audiences. Adjacent to the DAC is ECF’s Downtown Art Center, a large studio space where adult artists living with intellectual disabilities develop their work, and receive ongoing training in the field of visual arts. This professional art studio (one of four in Los Angeles) is staffed by gifted instructors, all of whom are working and exhibiting artists in their respective fields. ECF Art Centers is an adult program of the Exceptional Children’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded in 1946 to help children, students, and adults with special needs reach their greatest potential, at www.ECF.net.
