The Visual Arts Advancement Collective presents their first exhibition as an entity. Comprised of both emerging and established artists, their styles range from abstract expressionism, to portraiture, to surreal.

In “We Still Here”, the artists make a statement as a collective about the purpose of art as a vehicle of truth, societal reflection, culture, collaboration, and support. Each member will sponsor an emerging artist to display alongside them in the exhibition.

The Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center is honored to host this exhibition as we continue to build bridges to artistic entities throughout our community.

The Collective will record an artist talk based upon your questions the week after the exhibition opens. Submit your questions via social media or the website.


The reception will be held on November 7, 2020 at 4:00 - 6:00 pm and is free and open to the public, but gallery capacity is limited. Please RSVP. Refreshments will be served.
