New DCC Gallery Exhibit Inspired by Arctic Circle

“Ginnungagap” by Annie Ewaskio is one of the pieces that will be included in the exhibit.

April 5, 2019 – The next exhibit in Dutchess Community College’s Mildred I. Washington Art Gallery will feature pieces in various mediums inspired by the Arctic Circle. The show will run between April 8 and May 3.

“A Magnetic North” will include work by 18 artists from around the world who participated in an artists’ residency in the Arctic Circle in the summer of 2016 and then created pieces inspired by their experience.

A panel discussion featuring five of the artists will be held April 11 between 12:30 and 2 p.m. and an opening reception will be held later that evening at 5 p.m. Both are free and open to the public.

The gallery is in the Allyn J. Washington Center for Science and Art. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
