Downtowner Gallery

Working as a visual artist often means working alone. We wanted to invite artists to reach out to other people, connect over creativity, and create new and unexpected something together. The results of those conversations and inspiration form “Common Ground,” an exhibit that is all about collaboration.

Mind you, not all of the co-conspirators of these works are even artists, while others are artists in different fields, styles or techniques.

A photographer collaborated with her friend and neighbor’s daughter, another artist worked with a model and a makeup artist, a group of fiber artists friends incorporated their different styles and techniques into works of art, two artists convened together over their love of monsters and robots, three generations of one family composed a piece together (5 contributors from 5-60 years old). Glass artists collaborated with painters who collaborated with family members who collaborated with musicians and poets and so forth and beyond!

Come see what happens when people work together. This exhibit is on view in the Downtowner Gallery from July 11-September 6, 2024, with an exhibit reception on August 16th from 6pm-8pm. After your visit, maybe you’ll think differently about your next creative project. As they say, “Teamwork makes the dream work.”

All art unless otherwise noted is available for purchase.
