Richard Keen: CONVERGING FORMS
Richard Keen’s work comes from the sea. His distillations of oceanic forms and the natural phenomena of the sea pulsate with the rhythms of life underwater–which, incidentally, is where Mr. Keen spends much of his time, as a professional diver. Distilled, confident, and dynamic, Keen’s canvasses are repositories of our collective, watery dreams. Come join us for an opening of works new and old here at the DAC.
Note: Mr. Keen will also teach a workshop on encaustic painting on Saturday, June 28. See here for more details.

Anne Buckwalter: ARTILLERY PARK
Anne Buckwalter’s world is may derive from ours, but it is an entirely foreign place, populated with a family of characters that range from the sinister to the sublime. Using characters and objects from nightmares, news stories, traditional folklore, and fiction, Ms. Buckwalter’s images animate obscure competitions and esoteric rituals with a playfulness that belies their depth of thematic intent. Imagine Marcel Dzama suffering from some childhood from of PTSD. We are pleased to present a show devoted to Ms. Buckwalter’s unique stories, so come welcome her to our walls.
