The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is very pleased to announce the opening of Paperland, a group exhibition of limited edition handmade fine art zines and prints.
Paperland presents a collection of handmade zines and prints created by ECF Art Center Artists and a select group of supporting local artists including: Erin Burrell, JR Luat, Bradford Lynn, Liz Mamont, Javier Ramirez and Carly Strauss. Themes explored in the works include nature, patterns, abstraction, spirituality, portraiture, and more. The limited edition zines also give viewers a glimpse of the creative process, source material influences and practice of each featured artist. The unique format of the zine allows these traits to be displayed for the first time in a gallery setting. To compliment the zines, the Gallery will also display collections of original prints, in combination with oversized xeroxed posters of images lifted directly from the printed publications themselves.
Proceeds from the exhibition will benefit the Art Centers, a Southern California based nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization which has mentored special needs artists since 1968. For more information on the Art Centers, please visit: www.ArtECF.org
