Last year, David Lusk Gallery said goodbye to our beloved August exhibition Price is Right and began brainstorming for a new summer show for both Memphis and Nashville. Meet Daily Art. Beginning 1 August, and for each day of that month, DLG highlights a single, significant artwork on the (new!) gallery website and all social media platforms. 31 days and 31 artists!
The significance of the piece varies from work to work: the artist may have held onto this piece for a personal reason or it could be a work that is leading to the artist’s current practice. DLG standbys accompany new names on the roster, kicking off a fresh summer experience.
For instance a Carroll Cloar self-portrait and a hyper-realistic Luisi Mera beach-scene drawing mix with a neon line sculpture by Hans Schmitt-Matzen, and with newcomer and Nashville-based artist Ashley Doggett’s etching that explores themes of religion, race, gender and dissociation.
On the morning of 1 August and on each of the following Wednesdays, an evite drops stating the seven artists who are the focus of that week. Early each of the following mornings, the front page of the DLG website features an artwork by one of the artists in that week’s group with a short commentary, and the DAILY ART and purchase info. The works are available for direct purchase on the gallery website. Additionally, the work featured on the website is promoted on social medias that day.
What is on the walls that month? In short, not much. The exhibition is for regular followers on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Artsy, ArtNet, and of course davidluskgallery.com. This is a fast-paced exhibition – it’s DAILY ART!
