Included Items: 
suggested donation.

Hillyer Art Space presents three solo exhibitions by local artists Tom Hill (MD), Millicent Young (VA), and Ana Elisa Benavent (VA).  Hill presents a series of bright paintings that incorporate the restlessness of a masculine sex drive and desire for other men; the compulsions of a perverted mind; and an aspiration to elevate that which is often dismissed as tawdry, garish, and trashy. Young presents a series of large, ethereal sculptures that address the loss of stillness, imagination, critical thinking, and sensuality in our culture, as well as the epidemic of global destruction. Benavent’s series of paintings layer contrasting colors, shapes, lines, and textures in an expression of universal emotion. 

The exhibitions open on Friday, June 6th and will run through Saturday, June 28th, 2014.  

The artists will each present a new body of work, and will be present to talk about their work with visitors at our reception on Friday, June 6th from 6-9pm, during Dupont Circle’s First Friday.
