Art Exhibit: "Synergy"
Site 2 & 3 Galleries
Synergy is an exhibition featuring work from the Torpedo Factory Artist Association's 2012 Visiting Artist Program. Completing its third year since it began in 2010, the Visiting Artist Program invites artists both emerging and experienced from around the nation to become a part of Torpedo Factory's art-making community by offering one, two, and three month residencies.
Synergy stems from the cohesive objective expressed by the visiting artists to fill their time at the Torpedo Factory Art Center (TFAC) with new audience exposure, fresh inspiration from within the TFAC, and abroad, and productive studio time that, in totality, amounts to an influential and wholesome experience. Conversely, their synergy translates into quite diverse works that ranges from stop motion animations to meticulously detailed drawings. The exhibition Synergy is centered on this aspect and displays artwork created by each artist during residency.
2012 Visiting Artists:
Jill Banks (VA), Dianne Bugash (MD), Judith Giuliani (MD), Regina Davis Izaguirre (DC), Hiromi Katayama (PA), Colleen Lochausen (MD), McCain McMurray (DC), Jan Moffatt (VA), Rindy O'Brien (DC), Joseph Shetler (AZ), Nancy Varipapa (VA)
About Art in Public Spaces:
This exhibition is part of the Torpedo Factory’s Art in Public Spaces (APS) program, which serves as the community outreach arm for the Torpedo Factory Art Center (TFAC) by providing rotating exhibition and educational program opportunities. APS does this by utilizing the public space on all three floors of the art center. They work with DC-metro area organizations in an effort to reach out to new and neglected groups, expanding the diversity of the audience to the TFAC. The Target Gallery, National exhibition space of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, manages APS.
