Event Information

Join Brentwood Arts Exchange on Saturday February 17, 2024, at 2pm for a two-part Artist and Curator Talk on the current exhibitions, “The Chosen Family,” and “The Genesis Project: Volume 3.”

“The Chosen Family,” curated by Lauren Davidson and Jarvis Dubois includes the work of three sets of emerging African American artists who are also close friends: Omari Jesse, Bria Edwards, and Olivia Bruce; Wesley Clark and Rodney “Buck!” Herring; Austin “Auz” Miles and Angelique Scott. What makes these friendships unique? How have their artistic practices influenced each other? How do artists support each other in a challenging industry? The talk will explore these questions and more which shaped the exhibition.

“The Genesis Project: Volume 3,” features artists Erwin Timmers and Ellyn Weiss in the Lab Gallery. The talk will explore their own collaboration on the gallery walls, and the processes of building off past “Volumes.” “The Genesis Project,” an ambitious, year-long collaborative wall exhibition, featuring a group of 10 artists who have been selected by many of the visual art stakeholders in the Gateway Arts District, including Portico Gallery, Washington Glass School, Otis Street Art Project/Behind the tracks Studios, and the Gateway Arts Center.
