The Dyer Arts Center summer hours are Mondays-Fridays from 10am to 3pm.
The Dyer Arts Center is calling for Black D/deaf artists to submit their best works for an exhibition that will be opening in November 2015. See Call For Artists for more information.
Thanks to a generous donation by Adrian Blue and Catherine "Cappy" Rush, we have received a stunning oil painting by Russian Deaf artist, Anatoly Mikljaev to add to our permanent collection. Titled, "Epic Tale of Soviet Cities," the painting was displayed at the 2002 Deaf Way II Cultural Arts Festival. Chuck Baird, one of the committee members of the exhibit, personally flew to Russia to pick this enormous painting, sized at 47.5 inches x 88 inches (or approximately 4 feet x 7 feet).
We will be having another Wine and Art party in September! The medium will be the zentangle method taught by local deaf artist, Sharon McKenney. More details will follow.
Local artists Michael Taylor and Gary Morse exhibit their art works. Taylor's exhibit, "Implied Science" is a work in progress of his geometric glass sculptures. Morse's "Alone in the Light" paintings depicts characters that tell a story in a surreal setting. The exhibit will close on August 14, 2015.
A photo exhibit curated by Alexandra Hayes-Rossiter, daughter of the late Jennifer Van Atta Hayes will be opening in early September. A fundraiser will be hosted in October. Proceeds will go to the Jennifer Van Atta Hayes Scholarship.
