Works by Daniel Ash & Julianna Karr in the “By Others” Gallery at Board & Vellum

Ready for a new show in the By Others gallery? We’ve been on hold for construction, but we are back! For November’s Capitol Hill Art Walk, we are hosting works by two artists: Daniel Ash and Julianna Karr. Read their artist statements, here, ahead of the November 14th opening reception.

November 7, 2019

Hello, Everyone! With construction on our building this summer, it’s been quite a while since we hosted an opening in our By Others gallery at Board & Vellum. And now, we have a few more walls for art!

With the reopening of the gallery, we’ve also refreshed our standard schedule for shows in By Others: to give more exposure to more artists, we will now host two artists at a time, and open new shows every two months.

With that in place, we are showcasing two artists in our upcoming show and we’d be thrilled if you came by to join us for their opening, Thursday, November 14th, 2019 at the B&V Offices, from 6PM to 8PM.

To get you excited, please read on for artists’ statements and a sampling of the pieces you’ll see when you stop in. We hope to see you!

Daniel Ash

My work explores the inherent yet hidden qualities in familiar natural forms. Branches can reveal much about the trees they come from, yet are often sent to wood chippers or compost piles rather than becoming visible. They are ideal communicators of the language of change, adaptation and growth. My goal is not to transform them but to reveal what is veiled behind bark, leaves and sunshine. The paint serves to highlight the color, shape and texture of the wood itself.

DIY Urbanism

Every year, communities come together to take back parking-spot-sized parcels of the street, transforming them into pedestrian-centric installations. Though PARK(ing) Day lasts mere hours, other forms of tactical urbanism exist globally in various degrees of permanence, engaging and influencing the evolution of communities, public space, and informing the relationship between an urban environment its inhabitants.

Architects in the Music World

The general public may know more about musicians than about architects; after all, it’s a lot easier to share a song far and wide than a building. But, both are both creative fields, so it may come as no surprise how much crossover there is between them.
