Evolution of an Initial Impact - Gallery Reception

Featuring the artwork of Jessica Phelps, Chris Green, and Vernon Akili.

This exhibit was developed while considering "Decades and Generations" as the theme of the season for Downing-Gross. The process of establishing the Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center mirrors the creative process of art. During the process, those initial building blocks develop into a completely transformed space.

Success is only achieved after we evaluate where we started and evolve into something better - establishing a dialogue that we choose to nurture. This exhibit displays the evolution of a piece of art from the first brushstrokes to the final multi-layered and colorful work of art. Take your time and take in each painting, noticing the depth and truly seeing the process for what it is - an evolution of an initial impact.
