BITE in the news

BITE identity and humor continues to attract a steady stream of visitors who  laugh their way around the gallery. Not everything in BITE is funny, though.  Some works are poignant and sad while others deal with tough subjects such as drug abuse, disabilities, and fear. All of the works have  a  sharp edge which has caught the attention of  arts writers. The Washington Post’s  Michael O’Sullivan chose it as his gallery pick of the week, it was  featured in Northern Virginia Magazine, and now there is a major article by Janet Rems, Editor at Large for the Faifax Times.

Janet consistently explores beneath the surface of exhibitions to find out what is essential and often surprises me by getting artists to tell her things no one else knows about. Clear, intelligent arts writing like Janets’ is a gift to everyone – arts organizations, artists, and the wider community.  Thank you Janet. And thank you Jefferson Pinder and all the artists for bringing BITE to GRACE. Next Friday, July 29th is the last day to see this thought-provoking show. Don’t miss it!
