Opening Reception: Friday, July 21 from 7pm to 9pm
VisArts presents, NextGen 4.0, an annual juried group exhibition for 17 to 27-year-old aspiring artists in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area. The exhibition was developed to address this demographic of artists who are serious about making art and have little to no experience exhibiting their work in a professional gallery. It provides a stepping stone to not only showcase their artwork, but also to practice their professionalism. This includes responding to a call by creating an artist statement, resume, preparing their work in digital format for submission, and planning how to deliver and install their works as needed. While giving exposure to these young artists, VisArts’ gallery interns and volunteers work behind the scenes to promote, install, and curate the exhibition.
This year’s exhibition features: Kandora Acadia, Caitlin Angulo, Luisa Carson, Brennan Cox, Matailong Du, Allison Gong, Heather Hannan, Caroline Hatfield, Elli Hernandez, Mia Navarro, Shelley Picot, Nicholas Seitz, Sarah Tilton, You Wu, and Joy Yi.
NextGen 4.0 is generously sponsored by Cambria hotel and suites.
