Hillyer Art Space

Hillyer Art Space is a contemporary exhibition site dedicated to serving the public with quality exhibitions and programming. Established in April 2006, HAS is a program of International Arts & Artists, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to increasing cross-cultural understanding and exposure to the arts internationally. HAS presents a dual series of exhibition programs in its two-room space. Exhibitions feature artists of both emerging and established stature and are solo, group or thematic in orientation. At HAS work from artists living and working in the mid-Atlantic region, particularly the DC area, exists alongside the work of their international peers. By exhibiting this variety of international art adjacent to local works, HAS creates a dialogue of cultural exchange. HAS gives its partners extensive creative autonomy in the development and curation of their exhibitions. HAS partners with artists, curators, arts organizations and cultural institutions to foster a collaborative spirit within the local and global art scene. In this way, HAS serves as an open forum for a variety of artistic visions and disciplines from the local community and abroad. An esteemed mix of artists and arts professionals make up Hillyer’s Artist Advisory Committee and guide HAS on its local programming.

Chandi Kelley: Unnatural Histories
By Partner Events

Exhibit Dates: Friday, November 1 – 27, 2013 OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, November 1st, 6-9pm

Chandi Kelley’s exhibition, Unnatural Histories, highlights the tension between fiction and documentation through constructed environments and the objects that inhabit them. Kelley seeks blurred lines between the real and the unreal, and the points where these two worlds intersect. In this body of work Kelley has applied artifice to natural objects, and sometimes to artificial objects that mimic the natural. The application of gold in various forms is an over the top gesture to draw attention to natural beauty, create a spectacle of nature, and perhaps even to assign value to waning preciousness. By adding superfluous attributes, Kelley manipulates these objects until they become relics of a false natural history, teetering on a line between the familiar and the unfamiliar.

D.B. Stovall: A Slower Way of Seeing: Photographs of the American Vernacular
By Partner Events

Exhibit Dates: Friday, November 1 – 27, 2013 OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, November 1st, 6-9pm Artist Talk: Thursday, November 7th at 7pm Where: Hillyer Art Space, 9 Hillyer Court NW, Washington, DC 20008

D.B. Stovall presents A Slower Way of Seeing: Photographs of the American Vernacular, a series of photographs of buildings – random store fronts and taverns, gas stations and garages, run down theaters – from across the United States. He considers his subject matter to represent the “American Vernacular,” things that seem mundane or commonplace to others, yet define our existence. View cameras, both 4x5 and 8x10, were used to create this work, both for total image control and because they facilitate what he describes as a “slower way of seeing” that has become a hallmark of his work.

Pamela Viola: Having a Ball
By Partner Events

Exhibit Dates: Friday, November 1 – 27, 2013 Opening Reception: Friday, November 1st, 6-9pm Artist Talk: Thursday, November 7th at 7pm Where: Hillyer Art Space, 9 Hillyer Court NW, Washington, DC 20008

Pamela Viola will show Having a Ball, a series which grew out of her desire to loosen up her work. She felt it had become too tight and organized, and wanted it to be lighter and more whimsical. Along the way Viola experienced the newness and excitement of falling in love with photography all over again. This series initially developed from photographs made with an iPhone and composited on an iPad. Combining unrelated images with a variety of creative apps felt like play, energizing her. She started using elements of one piece in the next, layering metaphor, symbolism, and subtle mystery as the series progressed.
