DayGloSho Goes National
The annual DayGloSho at Waterloo Arts is a unique gallery experience of glowing art that is as delightful for adults as it is magical for children to experience. The month-long exhibit is shown in black light, giving the fluorescent artwork an appearance of illumination from within and the 3D glasses provided for viewers at the exhibit add yet another dimension to the work. Over forty artists participate with a fresh crop of local artists presented each year. New for 2019, Waterloo Arts has expanded the roster to include artists from throughout the United States. In partnership with DayGlo Color Corporation, Waterloo Arts is able to provide an assortment of DayGlo paint to invited artists, free of charge, giving artists the opportunity to experiment with the unusual properties of fluorescence while creating new work for the exhibit. This year we have extended that opportunity to the community by scheduling open studios at Waterloo Arts where everyone is welcome to give the paint a try. Artwork created during open studios will be hung in the annex gallery for public viewing during exhibition, as will work made at home by artists who are not on the DayGloSho 7 roster. The seventh annual DayGloSho opens on Friday, March 1, with a fabulously far-out celebration for art lovers of all ages.
Opening April 5, Waterloo Arts will present the work of three young Cleveland artists and recent Cleveland Institute of Art graduates Orlando Caraballo, Amirah Cunningham and Azziz Muhammad in a show titled What Goes Up… Orlando explains, “We are collectively playing with the ideas surrounding the realities of social hierarchy versus the imagined futures of realities yet unseen as it pertains to oppressed groups (in this case, black and brown peoples). The phrase ‘what goes up must come down’ can be a phrase of trepidation or hope, depending on whether you see it from the oppressor’s or the oppressed perspective.” The show will be open during the monthly district art walks on the first Friday in April and May with live music outside the gallery on the Tower Stage, courtesy of Space Rock: Past, Present and Future.
