Holdfast at Dayton Visual Arts Center

September 17, 2015

Four artists–Travis Head, David Dunlap, Zach Stensen and Josh Black–make up the artist collective .  Geographically disconnected (LA, Iowa City, Blacksburg, VA, and Doha, Qatar), their collaborative work grew out of a 2007 letter writing project and into short-term gatherings taking place over the span of many years, including two weeks in September to create the exhibition Holdfast at the Dayton Visual Arts Center.

Referencing personal stories, US history and the passing of time, the exhibition features drawings, constructed spaces, and sculptural installations, seamlessly encompassing the individual artists’ content into an accessible larger narrative.

Holdfast is on view through October 17, 2015.  More information is at http://www.daytonvisualarts.org.
