Short Shows give new opportunities

S hort Shows, such as the ones at DVAC, provide exposure to works by artists outside of the regular exhibition schedules and make for a lively arts scene. The current round going on involves “Enshrined, Embellished, and Worked Out”, a collaboration between the mother/daughter combo of Aka and Christina Pereyma, and an interacrtive project called “45402″ by Daryl Woody. The Pereymas will show textile pieces in which Chrisyina prints simple rust patterns on fabric and Aka embellishes them, a beautiful combination of design and pattern in a process that Aka calls “Byzantining” and related to the ancient symbologies of the Ukraine and other folk elements. One day they are working together is Thursday, October 28 from 3-5 pm at DVAC where Christina will also explain the rust print process. Daryl Woody invites the community to create collaged postcards and mail them to DVAC at 118 N. Jefferson Street in Dayton zipcode “45402″ on a maximum of 4″x6″ rectangle with the artist’s name. Already stamped and addressed postcards are available at the gallery during the combined shows, which last through October 30, with a reception 5-7 pm on Saturday, October 30.
