Exhibit Dates: March 31 – April 30, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, March 31 from 7-9pm
The Breaking the Glass Ceiling – The Sky’s the Limit art exhibit at Del Ray Artisans gallery reflects on the metaphor “breaking the glass ceiling”, pushing through a tough, not quite invisible barrier that keeps many from reaching their full potential or their dreams beyond a certain level in a hierarchy or in society. Breaking glass, breaking barriers, reaching beyond traditional boundaries, stretching beyond one’s own and society’s current limits, only accepting the limits of an endless sky have been a theme for many artists and reflect a very current theme. Please join us for the Opening Reception on Friday, March 31 from 7-9pm.
Please also join us on Friday, April 14 from 7-9pm for a sampling of short films from the Alexandria Film Festival. The films are being selected from the fall 2016 festival and will tie in with the Breaking the Glass Ceiling – The Sky’s the Limit art exhibit theme.
This year Del Ray Artisans celebrates 25 years of supporting visual artists; providing equal access to all has always been at the center of its mission. Inclusion of all to provide a space to advance beyond set boundaries is as important today as it was 25 years ago.
