AAC announces the 2017-2018 SOLOS artists

AAC announces the 2017-2018 SOLOS artists, Ryan McCoy: To Sleep in Flames and Dream of Rain, and the annual Día de los Muertos program

ARLINGTON, VA – Arlington Arts Center (AAC) presents its biannual SOLOS exhibitions as a means of engaging the community with the works of talented regional artists. This series, on display in the fall and spring, allots one of AAC’s main galleries to each of the 14 Mid-Atlantic artists selected to participate in the exhibitions.

Over a hundred artists submit proposals, which are evaluated by jurors representing some of DC’s most esteemed art professionals.
The selection process is based on a variety of criteria, including media, content, artistic career, and compatibility with AAC’s mission. Previous SOLOS exhibitions have included an eclectic mix of painting, sculpture, installation, photography, performance, and more. This year’s jurors were Kate Haw and Mika Yoshitake. Haw is the Director of the Smithsonian Institution’s Archives of American Art, Yoshitake is a Curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
SOLOS artists often respond to their designated gallery space to create site-specific installations and present brand new works, making each SOLOS show a unique experience.

2017-2018 SOLOS ARTISTS:
Mary Baum, Atsuko Chirikjian, Aschely Cone, Catherine Day, Sean Derry, Adam Griffiths, Phaan Howng, Anna Kell, Giulia Livi, Jen Noone, Nick Primo, Mojdeh Rezaeipour, Jerry Truong, and Julie Wills
