DG Guest Curator, Clayton Singleton presents this radiant exhibit on display in the Newport News Community Gallery beginning in January 2021. Light From All Sides is a multi-artist exhibit that examines interpretations of love through exhilarating artistic expression. The featured artists have each translated the often esoteric and individualized experience into works of art. The resulting expressions are as unique as the combinations of styles and mediums on display, with the common thread being the feeling - best described as stepping out of the darkness and into the sun to feel warmth and light from all sides.
Pictured above are the artists featured in this exhibit (from left to right): Ray Johnson, Rain Spann, ChaVonne Whisonant, Jasmyne Hampden, Alyssa Pickens, Poetry Jackson, Parrish Majestic, Julian Haskins, and Mensah Bey.
Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center is hosting the LFAS art show and related programming for the exhibit. The opening reception, community poetry, children's event, and artist panel discussion are a mix of physical, hybrid, and virtual events all in accordance to COVID-19 guidelines.
