AN ART ENABLES EXHIBITION GUEST-CURATED BY TRAP BOB
November 6 - December 19, 2021
This Art Enables exhibition was guest-curated by DC-based visual artist, illustrator and animator Tenbeete Solomon, better known as Trap Bob. Celebrated for using bold color in her own work, Trap Bob gravitated toward a similarly vibrant palette in her selection of Art Enables works for this show. In her focus on color, she found a unifying theme across a diverse range of subject matter and style—the palettes by which she was most “drawn in.”
This exhibition includes work by Art Enables artists on the studio gallery walls as well as an installation in Art Enables’ storefront windows. The latter features works on paper by both Trap Bob and Art Enables artists, suspended in gradations of warm and cool hues.
Trap Bob states, “In my own personal work, this use of color is how I create composition and balance, eliciting a reaction from the viewer before they even know what the piece is about. It’s something familiar enough for anyone to feel, whether they realize it or not.”
Art Enables x Trap Bob: DRAWN IN will open on Saturday, November 6, 2021, with public gallery hours from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. and an opening reception from 4 - 7 p.m. Masks required.
