Join us for January's Gallery Opening & Artist Reception! Gallery Openings are FREE, family-friendly, and open to the public. Light refreshments are served. This month we are featuring ART/DEV Chattanooga.

ART/DEV is a group of interdisciplinary experimentalists. Alex Cruikshank and Heath Montgomery founded the group in 2014 after a collaboration for an art project as a way to continue their work and hopefully meet other artists and experimentalists. Andrew Rodgers and Kit Buckley have become collaborators and many projects over the past years have taken shape as different members make proposals and lead projects that the other members work on. In addition, our practice is based on exploratory events that encourage participants to engage and reshape their own experience. We host these events at various locations and call them “PlayShops.” These events present a set of tools, and a prompt, for making art. The members of the group are there as guides but also function as facilitators for participants. This guided play happens around a theme like sound, light or drawing. Some of the work from those events inspired collaborations within the group for this show.
