The Dennis and Phillip Ratner Museum and Black Artists of DC (BADC) present Playing with Light: Making Visions Visible.
BADC artists explore the visual and philosophical aspects of light: illumination, shadow, truth, fears, and dreams, using digital art, embroidered tapestries, enhanced photography, pen and ink, acrylic paints, and mixed media. The artists in the exhibition are Daniel T. Brooking, James Brown, Jr., Al Burts, Maurice Harrington, Aziza Gibson-Hunter, Gloria C. Kirk, Harlee Little, Percy Martin, Yvette Mitchell, Michael B. Platt, and Eugene R.Vango.
The members of BADC support and enliven the arts in DC. They have exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum, local and national art galleries, and internationally in Nigeria, Ghana, France, and the Netherlands. Their members compliment the diversity of a cosmopolitan nation’s capitol.
In 2006, the works of 24 BADC members were selected and exhibited at Art Basel Miami Beach. The New York Times has called Art Basel Miami Beach “arguably the hottest trade fair in the hemisphere”. The members have expanded beyond traditional art exhibitions to on-line galleries, making art available to a worldwide audience. BADC artists have also been asked to exhibit in Art Basel Miami Beach 2008. All of BADC’s accomplishments enhance the reputation of Washington, DC as a nurturing environment for artists.
