Looking Forward - April 4th -15th
A Da Vinci Art Alliance Members Exhibition

Open Call to DVAA Members
"The artist sees what others only catch a glimpse of"
- Leonardo Da Vinci

       In the wake of a tumultuous year we, as artists, nevertheless have a responsibility to explore, challenge, and innovate within our artistic practices and daily lives. Looking Forward will seek to encapsulate this momentum by exhibiting new and exploratory artwork happening in our membership now. DVAA members submitting to Looking Forward are encouraged to send us artwork that is forward thinking or experimental in its undertaking.  Are you working on a new body of work, introducing new processes or mediums into your repertoire, or concerned with ideas that are critical of contemporary artistic conventions? We urge you to apply. This exhibition is open to all forms of artwork, capturing any subject, of any theme, using any artistic discipline.

       In keeping with the theme of this exhibition, Looking Forward will be the first Members Exhibition held in DVAA’s newly renovated (and beautiful) main gallery space! We are very thankful for the accumulated hard work of so many members that helped make this transformation a reality and are excited for the things to come. So let us all take a cue from our organization’s namesake, Leonardo Da Vinci, to be on the forefront of artistic, cultural, and political discourse.


Submission deadline:  March 4th, midnight
Artwork Drop-off:  March 25th, 11am-1pm and 28th 6-8pm
Opening reception:   April 4th, 6pm - 8pm
