Showing in tandem with Remnants is Resonate, an exhibition of juried work by DVAC members, selected by curator and Director of ArtsLIVE at the University of Dayton Eileen Carr and artist Christina Pereyma. The emotional resonance of objects, common or curious, is something that drives artists to create new work from what has been discarded.
“Over the past century, many artists—painters, writers, poets—have seen potential in the ephemera of life, inspiring works that strive to preserve memory, beauty, history, or simply the mystery of the past,” states Buttacavoli. “This exhibition of juried work by DVAC members, selected by Carr and Pereyma, present a range of works that reflect the resonant potential of objects drawn from life.”
