We are thrilled to announce that a series of wood cutout figures and a brand new Jell-O mold drawing by Camille Holvoet will be featured in TAN LINES in New York City. Hosted by SUMMERTIME, a new project created by CE supporter Sophia Cosmodopolous, the exhibition aims to present works by artists with and without intellectual disabilities under one roof. If you are on the east coast this summer, be sure to check it out.

Sophia also recently interviewed Vincent Jackson for the ACE Hotel Blog. Check out the full interview here.

SUMMERTIME is thrilled to announce our inaugural exhibition, TAN LINES, celebrating all things hot and sweaty. TAN LINES will feature works by Joseph Algieri, Everette Ball, Mary T. Bevlock, Mike Goodlett, Camille Holvoet, Lucy Nagle, Byron Smith and Alice Wong in a summer themed group exhibition at Institute 193 (1B). 

Summer in New York City is a gift available to all. New Yorkers cool off together on beaches and in open fire hydrants, grill together at block parties and commiserate with one another on subway platforms. TAN LINES channels the shared experience of a New York City summer - the riotous exuberance, playfulness, desire and nostalgia, uniting work from progressive art studios with artists working outside of that construct.

SUMMERTIME, founded by Sophia Cosmadopoulos and Anna Schechter, is a 501(c)(3) collective supporting artists with intellectual disabilities alongside artists without. SUMMERTIME’s mission is to showcase the talents of artists in an inclusive and contemporary manner, fostering identity and connection.

We would like to thank Creative Growth, Creativity Explored, Center for Creative Works, YAI ARTS and LAND for their participation in this exhibition and their continued support of artists with intellectual disabilities in progressive art studios as well as Institute 193 for hosting TAN LINES.
