One-year Anniversary Pictures

We’ve had an exciting month at the DAC!  We are preparing for our annual Holiday Market and just closed our Anniversary Show. Thanks for the amazing turnout and overwhelming support at our opening reception last month. It was a night full of laughter, drinks, and friends as we celebrated a successful first year for the Downtown Artist Collective. We also introduced our new artists and are excited about the way the group dynamics are developing. It promises to be a great year at the DAC with some incredible collaborations and a heightened focus on getting out into the community. To achieve our goals we’ve added two community outreach members to the collective who will be working with the youth, getting them interested in the arts.

We’ll also be spotlighting collective members each week on Facebook and Instagram. Look for Alexanna Wonder, Alexis Hansen, Anthony Siciliano, Chris Bodily, Heather Romney, Jeffrey Hale, Nathan Mulford, Katie Strader, and Prajit Ravindran. As well as our amazing board members; Amy Leininger, Celine Downen, Chris Madsen, Desarae Lee, Jamie Kyle, and Miroslava Vomela.  And newly added community outreach members; Emily Bagley and Karen Kendall.

Starting Nov 17th our annual Holiday Market opens.  It’s a great opportunity to pick up the gift of art for the holidays as well as supporting your local artists!

Downtown Artist Collective: Our Mission

We are creating opportunities for artists and the community to come together through our newly created Artist Co-Op Downtown Artist Collective (DAC). We hope to provide an environment for artist to cultivate and strengthen their work, be exposed to various artists and learning different technique and skills, and providing a place for exhibition and interaction with the community.
